IF05: Total Distal Radio-Ulnar Joint Replacement using a Semi-constrained Prosthesis
From: 11:30 AM To: 12:30 PM
Room 3AB, Convention Center

The Scheker Distal Radio?Ulnar Joint prosthesis is the only prosthesis that replaces all of the functions of the distal radio?ulnar joint, including the sigmoid notch, the ulnar head and the function of the triangular fibro cartilage. This workshop is intended to teach the hand surgeon the technique for application of the Scheker Distal Radio?Ulnar Joint prosthesis. The pearls and pitfalls will be discussed when using the replacement either primarily, following soft tissue arthroplasties such as Darrach, Sauve?Kapandji, Watson matched resection, Bowers hemi?resection procedures, and as a salvage of other prosthetic options.
Session Format: Lecture and Hands-on cadaveric demonstration (faculty only)
