WHO SHOULD ATTEND Orthopedic surgeons with experience in knee replacement surgery.

The profile of patients with knee osteoarthritis has progressively changed.Initially associated with older patients with tricompartmental knee osteoarthritis, it now includes younger and more active patients with monocompartmental or bicompartmental diseases, often the consequence of sporting injuries, fractures or prolonged overuse. Consequently, there is an increasing demand for a minimally invasive surgery that could permit these young patients to return to their previous everyday activities.

The course will focus on medial and lateral unicompartimental knee replacement, patellofemoral replacement and their combination in treating bicompartmental osteoarthritis: bi-unicompartmental knee replacement and unicompartimental + patellofemoral replacement. Another topic explained will be the combination of unicompartimental knee replacement and anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction in the treatment of knees with unicompartimental disease and anterior cruciate ligament deficiency.

COURSE OBJECTIVES The objective of this course is to understand the indications and the
surgical techniques of small implants in the treatment of end-stage
monocompartmental or bicompartmental diseases.
