Emerging Biologic Techniques & Cartilage Repair in Sports Medicine. Organized by the Argentine Association of Sports Traumatology (AATD) Course Directors: Ezequiel Santa Coloma, MD Hernan Giuria, MD Ignacio Dallo, MD Guests Speakers: Alberto Gobbi, MD John Lane, MD Moises Cohen, MD Rodrigo Mardones, MD Guillermo Arce, MD Objectives “The purpose of this meeting is to offer participants the opportunity to directly connect with highly respected doctors and scientists from the fields of Cartilage repair and Sports Medicine.” Special Highlights: • Keynotes on Top Trending Sports Medicine topics in 2020 • Tap into faculty expertise in small group case-based discussions and one-on-one consults • Panels and debates offer differing perspectives and preferences on controversial areas of decision-making and treatment approaches • Emerging and leading-edge technology, orthobiologics, and innovative surgical techniques • Surgery & Ultrasound guided infiltration in real cases. Topics: • Basic sciences • Clinical Applications of Regenerative Orthopaedics • Innovative Cartilage Repair Techniques and Sports Medicine • Joint Preservation and Regeneration (Meniscus, Ligaments, and Cartilage) • Biological treatments in Cartilage, Bone, Ligaments, Tendon, and Muscle) • Debates and panel discussions about different perspectives on controversial topics • Surgery & Infiltration with live streaming (online) After this course, learners should be able to: • Compare and contrast the various surgical and nonsurgical treatment protocols for cartilage disorders and joint instability conditions. • Review the anatomy, function, and injuries of the knee and shoulder. • Non-operative and operative treatment strategies for joint injuries • Compare and contrast the indications and treatment for knee and shoulder arthroscopy • Evaluate indications for cartilage, tendon, and ligaments repair and regeneration. • Prescribe correct knee and shoulder rehabilitation protocols to maximize post-surgical and post-injury function • Compare short-term and long-term treatment strategies for joint injuries. • Identify practice efficiencies, optimal use of orthobiologics (ultrasound, injections, etc.), and reduction in costs in the ambulatory setting. Who Should Attend? Orthopaedic Surgeons • Sports Medicine Doctors • Residency Programs Sports Medicine Fellows • Primary Care Sports Medicine Physicians Appropriate Use Criteria Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) specify when it is necessary to use a procedure. An “appropriate” method is one for which the expected health benefits exceed the likely health risks by a wide margin. Often, sound data is not available or does not provide evidence that is detailed enough to apply to the full range of patients seen in everyday clinical practice. Nevertheless, physicians must make daily decisions about when to use or not use a particular procedure. AUCs facilitate these decisions by combining the best available scientific evidence with the collective judgment of physicians to determine the appropriateness of performing a procedure. Accreditation Statement The Argentina Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOT) is accredited to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. CME Credit Physicians should claim only the credits commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
