Joint Preservation Techniques for the Knee in 2020: The Utility of Biologics, Osteotomies, and Cartilage Restoration Procedures

Rachel M. Frank MD; Andreas H. Gomoll MD; Eric J. Strauss MD; Armando F. Vidal MD

 

Course Description:

The goal of this instructional course lecture is to provide a comprehensive overview of joint preservation techniques for the knee, including biologic and reconstructive approaches, with an emphasis on evidence-based treatment guidelines for young, high-demand patients. This will be a case-based ICL with an emphasis on clinical and surgical decision-making, with case examples of in-season athletes, contact-athletes, endurance-athletes, and patients with previous failed joint preservation surgery. Experts within the joint preservation field will provide pearls and pitfalls for the management of these challenging patients, with real-life (as opposed to theoretical) case examples

 

Course Objectives:

  • To understand the role of osteotomy as an adjust to cartilage/meniscal restoration.
  • To discuss technical pearls for performing combined cartilage restoration, meniscus transplantation, ligament reconstruction, and/or realigning osteotomies.
  • To discuss indications for biologic augmentation to joint preservation techniques in the setting of cartilage and/or meniscal restoration.
  • To discuss management of the young, high level athlete requiring cartilage/meniscal restoration.
  • To go through controversial clinical cases and determine best-practice treatment options.
