#610: How Can We Improve PJI Prevention?
06 Oct 2020
Event details

Periprosthetic joint infections are still one of the most challenging complications in arthroplasty. Patients at high risk for infection are more and more considered to be the key group, where PJI risk can and must be decreased.

In cooperation with PALACADEMY®, the learning and knowledge platform for bone and joint surgery by Heraeus Medical, we present a TV Event which asks “How can we improve PJI prevention? Avoiding infection with ALBC in high risk patients”. International experts from all over Europe share their experiences in case discussions and present their study data. Discuss with our experts: How can risk for infection be defined? How should high risk patients be treated? Which strategies are promising? What is the role of dual antibiotic-loaded bone cements?

The CME accredited online training is designed for specialists in orthopedic and trauma surgery, sports medicine and rehabilitation. The training is certified by the State Medical Association Baden-Wuerttemberg. As of the event date, you will be able to complete the CME quiz for a period of 12 months and earn 6 CME credits.

I will learn to
  • Deepen the understanding for risk factors acquiring a PJI
  • Get to know the latest concepts of infection management
  • Characterize different prevention measures according to the latest research results
  • Understand the importance of multidisciplinary approaches in PJI treatment strategies
  • Summarize the indications for the use of dual ALBC in primary arthroplasty
  • Contrast the preoperative workup, indication and therapy in septic vs. aseptic revision cases
  • Take different treatment aspects in revision arthroplasty into account
