24th Annual Baltimore Limb Deformity Course

250 0


24th Annual Baltimore Limb Deformity Course

Dates: Friday, August 29, through Sunday, August 31, 2014

This course has been the standard in teaching lower extremity alignment for the past two decades. It is designed for orthopedic surgeons, podiatrists and allied health professionals who treat long-bone deformities. No prior experience is required. The internationally renowned faculty will introduce basic and advanced limb reconstruction concepts, including corrective osteotomies, limb alignment, limb lengthening and internal and external fixation. The course features lectures, deformity planning sessions, hands-on saw bone labs and a digital radiograph planning lab. Participants will also have an opportunity to present adult, pediatric and podiatric cases to their peers. 

Topics include:

  • Single-level and double-level tibial and femoral deformities
  • Sagittal and oblique plane deformities
  • Rotational deformities
  • Foot and ankle deformities
  • Monolateral/circular external fixation
  • Gait implications for angular and rotational deformities
  • Measurement of deformity on plain film and digital radiographs
  • Surgical techniques for lower extremity osteotomies
  • Consequences of joint malorientation and malalignment
  • Fixator-assisted plating and nailing
  • Limb lengthening techniques 

Pre-Course: Cadaver Lab - Deformity Correction Osteotomies, Soft-Tissue Procedures, Basic Flaps, and Safe Zones for Wires and Pins

Date: Thursday, August 28, 2014

The one-day pre-course is a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience with one-on-one instruction from renowned faculty. Participants will apply external fixation and perform osteotomies, nerve decompressions, and muscle/tendon rebalancing procedures. Safe zones for wires and pins in the lower extremity will be highlighted.

Pre-Course: Internal Lengthening

Date: Thursday, August 28, 2014

New technology to lengthen the femur and tibia is available on the U.S. and international markets. These telescoping, magnetically-activated internal rods are capable of correcting deformities with acute rotational and angular correction. The course will bring together surgeons with extensive experience with this emerging technology to discuss the basic principles of the device, rates of correction, pre-op planning for osteotomy level and nail length, applications for deformity correction, and results of current research studies.

Post-Course:  Taylor Spatial Frame (TSF) - Back to Basics

Date: Monday, September 1, 2014

This course stresses the important basic principles of frame stability, optimal wine/pin configuration, dynamization, and planning for foot, tibial, and femoral frames. Hands-on labs will involve both saw bones and computer simulations.
