4th Annual Contemporary Issues in
Partial Knee Arthroplasty (CIPKA)

June 4-6, 2010
Muirfield Village
Dublin, OH
sponsor / exhibitor prospectus

Partial knee arthroplasty (PKA) has enjoyed a renewed interest in the last decade. Isolated medial, lateral, and patellofemoral arthroplasty are all becoming the norm for the treatment of compartmental disease. Additionally, bicompartmental arthroplasty has been introduced in an effort to preserve the normal ligamentous structures in appropriate knees. A combination of improved results over previous experiences, newer devices such as mobile bearing PKA and newer patellofemoral replacement designs, and improved implantation techniques including minimally invasive alternatives have driven this excitement. Debate continues to surround, however, the appropriate indications for PKA, particularly involving the patellofemoral joint.

This continuing medical education event will focus on the contemporary issues in PKA, featuring didactic lectures and interactive panel discussions. The indications, contraindications, and outcomes of medial, lateral, patellofemoral, and bicompartmental replacements will be reviewed by a faculty of worldwide experts.

In conjunction with this program will be discussions that center around post-operative care such as PONV, DVT prevention, blood loss, and pain management.

Please join us in beautiful Dublin, Ohio at Muirfield Village for the 4th Annual Contemporary Issues in Partial Knee Arthroplasty (CIPKA) meeting. First time visitors will be required to set up a free online account with The Center for HealthCare Education.

The program has been developed to meet the educational needs of orthopaedic surgeons and residents / fellows.

The focus of this program will be the contemporary issues in PKA. The indications, contraindications, and outcomes of medial, lateral, patellofemoral, and bicompartmental replacements will be reviewed.
