Moderator: Brian M. Curtin, MD (US)
This webinar is designed to discuss the hot topics in Total Hip Arthroplasty, specifically, Dysplastic Hips, beginning with the important anatomical references in both low and high dislocated hips, how to plan the surgery, and which implant options are suitable. Also, the maximum acceptable lengthening, when and how to place the acetabular cup at the original anatomical site, and different techniques to work the dysplastic femur with or without shortening osteotomy at the subtrochanteric or distal level. Surgical tricks and tips will be discussed by experienced surgeons.

Discussion – Brian M. Curtin, MD (US)
• Characterize the anatomical abnormalities often encountered with management of the dysplastic hip.
