Drs. Khan and Bhandari talked about the trending topics of shoulder conditions, important studies to read and the research questions yet to be answered. Our discussion uncovered 4 core themes. These themes are outlined below.Surgery does not show benefit for shoulder impingement syndromeThe role of biologics in rotator cuff surgeryInstabilityThe role of templating and augmented reality in shoulder arthroplasty

Dr. Carlos Leal speaks on how shockwave therapy provides an effective non-invasive treatment option in orthopaedics for a variety of indications. While there is much promise for using this therapy option, there is need for further research to improve our understanding of how it can be useful in diverse therapeutic areas. Guest:Carlos Leal, MDOrthopedic Surgeon from Bosque University in Bogotá, ColombiaPostdoctoral Fellow in Biomechanics and Research at Harvard UniversityFellow in Knee Surgery from NYU’s Hospital for Joint Diseases inNew York and the Aspen Valley Clinic in ColoradoInternational Leader In Regenerative Orthopedics, Stem Cells And Shockwave Medicine
Sir John Charnley said “joint sepsis will be the major hurdle in our way in the future”. His words are still valid. Periprosthetic joint infection is one of the most catastrophic complications in orthopedic surgery. Prevention is crucial. Join us for an interactive, lively and informative discussion regarding 2 of the most controversial intraoperative procedures to prevent PJI.

Patients commonly present with acute pain secondary to an acute injury, and there are dozens of potential options for addressing their pain. Most trials explore the effectiveness of a treatment option versus placebo or sham therapy, which complicates assessment of comparative effectiveness among competing therapies. We will discuss the role of network meta-analyses to inform comparative effectiveness, despite limited evidence from head-to-head trials.Insights:An evolving approach for informing comparative effectiveness of competing interventionsOptimizing interpretation of effect estimatesConsideration of net benefit (benefits and harms)Advantages of a partially contextualized approach to interpreting network estimates vs. surface under the cumulative ranking curve (SUCRA)KeynoteJason Busse DC, PhDAssociate ProfessorAssociate Director, Michael G.

It is becoming clear that gender bias and gender-based data gaps are everywhere, even in orthopaedics. But, isn’t an arthritic knee an arthritic knee? Perhaps not. Gender bias is evident in how surgical procedures are offered and large data gaps exist in assessing clinical outcomes after surgery. This discussion will review how gender bias manifests for our orthopaedic surgery patients with regards to diagnosis, treatment and how we assess clinical outcomes. For us to better understand these factors, more women need to be enrolled in clinical trials. Also, in order to provide optimal care for our patients, gender-specific analysis of outcome data with consideration of confounding variables, will be of paramount importanceInsights:There are differences in how and when men and women are offered orthopaedic surgical proceduresThere are gender differences in how clinicians perceive disability and pain in patientsWomen are not represented equally in orthopaedic clinical trialsResearch data is often not presented with gender specific contextsThere are confounding variables with regard to gender that may bias clinical resultsKeynoteLaurie A Hiemstra, MD, PhD, FRCS(C)Orthopaedic Surgeon/Director of Research at Banff Sport Medicine FoundationAssociate Professor at University of Calgary
