Can short hip stems improve THA outcomes?

Can short hip stems improve THA outcomes?

1000+ cases, minimally invasive surgery and continued success. 

The focus of our latest webinar was again the highly successful and versatile Furlong Evolution® Hip. Professor Justin Cobb joined Mr Kerry Acton and Mr Johan Witt to deliver detailed presentations on the benefits of short stems, practical advice on direct-anterior and mini-posterior approaches. Mr Acton spoke insightfully on his experience of implanting over 1019 Furlong Evolution® Hip stems and having a remarkably low revision rate of 0.3%.

Following on-line questions, the panel then presented complex cases covering dysplasia, peri-prosthetic fracture and infection all treated with the bone conserving Furlong Evolution®.

It was a privilege to hear, watch and share the experiences of such well respected and knowledgeable arthroplasty surgeons present on the subject of short stems – thank you.

The key purpose of these webinars is to provide education to a global audience, we measure this by polling questions pre and post webinar to ensure that the topics engage and educate our audience. We are tremendously proud to note that for this important topic 86% of our attendees wanted to discover more about the use of short stems.

We have further webinars planned and look forward to continuing to provide a valuable educational resource.
