Within a week we will celebrate 2 months from the restart of elective surgical activity with the greatest success: no reported case of Covid complication19 in our center.

The months at the top of the contagion curve, when confinement was normal and necessary, and we only intervened in those strictly urgent hip surgeries, are behind us.

When the contagion curve stabilized, always below 1, it was time to resume elective activity, that is, the vast majority of hip surgeries: surgery for femoroacetabular shock, dysplasia and osteoarthritis of the hip in its different presentations by mini-invasive techniques.

From the beginning of May we proceeded through the “Safe Hospital” protocol. Hospital Seguro is a protocol that includes a series of both physical and clinical-diagnostic measures whose objective is to protect all Covid patients, both negative and cured, from possible Covid positives, both in outpatients and in emergencies. operating room area, intensive care and hospitalization plants.

Thanks to the implementation of this protocol and the positive response not only from healthcare personnel but from all the patients cared for (at this time ICATME works at full capacity) we have been able to carry out our activity without any reports from Sars-cov- two.

As with other infectious agents, human beings must adapt to coexist in this new phase.

Thank you all that made this posible. Even so, adapting does not mean letting your guard down at any time and anywhere beyond the hospital environment.

Now, although already during the high curve of the pandemic in Spain, patients could move between Autonomous Communities to be treated in hospital centers with the corresponding document, with the lifting of the State of Alarm Decree, said movement between Autonomous Communities enters a new phase of normality, which never excludes 3 premises for their own good and that of others: distance, hands and mask

The Hip Unit, as well as all ICATME, have successfully started elective non-urgent surgical activity (for example: arthrosis surgery, femoroacetabular shock, hip dysplasia, …) since the beginning of May. of the SAFE HOSPITAL protocol that emerged from the adaptation of the protocols of the German Society of Orthopedic Surgery (DGOOC), International Hip Society (IHS), American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) and European Society of Arthroscopy of the knee and Sports (ESSKA), presenting its widely satisfactory results, protecting patients who have not suffered from COVID disease as well as those who were cured of asymptomatic positive COVID patients, by means of specific clinical and radiological examinations mandatory in the Dexeus University Hospital, Grupo Quirón Salud.

For the interest of readers, both healthcare and non-healthcare, an image is left that corresponds to the outline chart of the Safe Hospital protocol that is followed for the introduction of surgical patients according to the strictest safety standards.

On May 23 the Venezuelan Society of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology (SVCOT) organizes an international telematic Congress, with the assistance of specialists from both continents.

Dr Ribas and Cardenas present their achievements and their experience in the diagnosis and treatment of femoroacetabular shock (known in Central and South America as Femoroacetabular Impingement).

With more than 2,000 interventions carried out, the Hip Unit has emerged as one of the benchmarks in the treatment of this pathology, the first cause of pain in the athlete’s hip and the first mechanical cause of arthrosis in said joint.

In addition to exposing cases of femoroacetabular shock, clinical cases of other mechanical hip pathologies that need to be differentiated are presented. The most frequently confused with femoroacetabular shock is residual hip dysplasia. Both cause chondrolabral lesions to evolve freely, but the treatment of the cause is completely different: while femoroacetabular shock is treated with remodeling of the acetabular overlay and femoral hump, residual dysplasia is treated by redirecting the acetabulum to provide physiological coverage . This is obtained through periacetabular osteotomy, a technique of which this Unit is a reference center in Europe for its mini-invasive technique.

REMEMBER TO GO TO YOUR APPOINTMENT:

1. You must wear the mask.
2. Try to be punctual, neither before nor after the indicated time.
3. Only the patient will be able to access the consultation, unless he is a dependent or a minor.
4. Respect the social distance of 2m.

After the stabilization of infections by COVID 19, the Quirón Dexeus University Hospital and consequently ICATME, we have gradually resumed our activity. To do this, we have restructured the physical space of our consultations and waiting rooms, with the aim of avoiding crowds and guaranteeing physical distance. In addition to the reforms of the workspace, the state of the professionals is monitored day by day.

For this new phase, ICATME has a Coronavirus prevention manual, of which we can highlight:

  • Visiting times have been spaced
  • Consultation hours have been increased with a greater demand for punctuality
  • Visiting time is minimized, to avoid crowding between patients
  • It is essential to have an Appointment to be attended at our facilities
  • The use of a mask is mandatory
  • You must go to the appointment at the exact time, neither before nor after.

In these conditions, with an exhaustive preoperative procedure focused on the Coronavirus, with the measures established in the operating rooms and the measures adopted by ICATME in the doctor’s offices, we can offer a safe environment to carry out surgical interventions, and follow-up in our facilities in person. and by telemedicine, if applicable, to avoid avoidable displacement.

From the Hip Unit we want to thank Professor Kjeld Söballe (Aarhus -Denmark), brilliant hip and pelvic surgeon, former chairman of the scientific committee of the European Hip Society (EHS); he in 2006 (2 years before I published it in the American Journal JBJS Am 2008) taught me the mini-invasive technique. Our fortune is to have known him, his generosity, didactic commitment. We can never thank him as he deserves.

First of all thank you friend Kjeld.

He was the one who realized that Ganz periacetabular osteotomy could be done by a mini-invasive approach that does not compromise the muscles, produces less bleeding, much less postoperative pain, and a faster return to everyday activities, including sport.

Today there is an undetermined number of athletes with moderate dysplasia, with a ratio of 4 to 5 women to 1 man, although there are ethnic and genetic factors. Low-grade dysplasia is not always detected at birth or during the first year of life.

Mini-invasive periacetabular osteotomy requires a highly specialized and coordinated medical and nursing team. We can see in the image Dr. Luis Ramírez placing the screws while Dr. Ribas maintains the correct redirection of the acetabulum to give normal three-dimensional coverage of the femoral head by the acetabulum. In our experience, there is no limit or residual standard dysplasia that is the same as another. Treatment is individualized patient by patient under a detailed preoperative calculation. We recommend reading on Instagram – Linkedin or on Twitter of “Periacetabular osteotomy step by step” by Dr. Luis Ramírez.

As we have been able to read in media such as the Medical Writing or the German newsletter BR24, a study carried out by the University of Eindhoven (Netherlands) together with the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium), shows that the virus particles that remain floating in the air when we are in motion, they require a greater distance between people.

The study’s recommendation is that we should maintain a distance of 4m when walking and more than 10m when running.

Although the Hip Unit is aimed at young people and young adults with dysplasia, often not noticed during childhood, it occurred in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th decades of life. This work, published in the largest Spanish journal of Orthopedics and Traumatology, represents the first work published on this mini-invasive technique throughout Central Europe and Southern Europe.

To thank our colleague Dr. Luis José Ramírez, specialist and member of the Unit staff, and the fellows we have had in recent years who, with their dedication, have made this work of data collection, angle measurement and analysis possible. statistical.

We could have perfectly published this work in an international magazine, but we believe that we owe it to our country. Disseminate knowledge of this technique in our field. This is how fundamentally Spanish and Spanish-speaking medical colleagues can access such precious and uplifting information.

I thank Dr. Luis José Ramírez for his dedication to the subject, the subject of his Doctoral Thesis, under the baton of the Professor at the University of Barcelona Andreu Combalía and myself (Dr. Manuel Ribas) as his tutor.

New works will appear, already more specific in the line of his Doctoral Thesis, as well as in the field of dysplastic athletes. Recently in the American Journal of Sports Medicine it was reported that 21% of Scandinavian soccer players suffered from hip pain as a result of residual dysplasia, and 46% from borderline dysplasia. In these cases, individual assessment is essential to offer the most appropriate treatment: simple arthroscopic treatment, repair of chondrolabal lesions in borderline dysplasia, arthroscopic treatment associated with mini-invasive periacetabular osteotomy or just mini-invasive periacetabular osteotomy.

For now, the Dexeus University Hospital is the only one in the South of Europ, which has carried out, since 2007, periacetabular osteotomy using a mini-invasive technique.

Dr Ribas participated in the Virtual Seminar on Double Mobility organized in Argentina this April 22, 2020.

For more than a decade, with the appearance of the new high cross linked polyethylene (HXLPE), the double mobility system born in France in 1974 by Prof Gils Bousquet (a 22 to 28 mm femoral head articulated with a large diameter HXLPE head) has enormous popularity, since in addition to providing great stability (superior to all conventional systems), it provides excellent clinical-functional results and durability. In the beginning, the polyethylene which if used in the present case is not comparable to actuality.
Nowadays the system with the improved polyethylene (HXLPE) holds very precise indications, especially in situations with special risk of dislocation, reducing these practically to zero. For this reason, in 2009, the North American FDA approved on use with the already new HXLPE.

In said seminar Drs. Ricardo Munafó and Federico Manfrin, expert in Duomobility in Argentina make an update. Dr. Manfrin explains the hip unit protocol of the University Hospital Dexeus as a case of his own Ribas.

The Duomobility represents a valid alternative in different situations as the Ribas includes in its protocol.

During the ascent phase and the peak phase of the Covid 19 pandemic curve, the Hip Unit has only deferred those non-urgent interventions (also called “electives”) following the rules dictated by the Alarm State Decree.

The protocols have been followed in the entire group of Quirónsalud hospitals. With the proper protection regulations, both for patients and healthcare personnel, and in completely separate circuits for Covid – and + patients, we have managed to satisfactorily attend to hip emergencies and their corresponding interventions.

Consultations have been made in the form of a telephone and telematic visit, to minimize the presence of patients in hospital facilities. In the case that attendance has been compulsory, they have been carried out with due spatial and temporal separation.

These prevailing rules will be followed until further notice. However, the ICATME hip unit, in view of the de-escalation of the curve in Spain, will resume its activity in a very short time under extremely strict preoperative, intraoperative and extraoperative protocols.

From here we want to thank the Quirónsalud group and its network of professionals, and especially those with whom we work at the Dexeus University Hospital for making it possible.

Dr. Víctor Aguirre is appointed by the Mexican College of Orthopedics and Traumatology Medical Holder in the Chapter of Hip and Knee Surgery for the Biennium 2020 and 2021.

The tasks attributed to this appointment for the whole country are:

  • Realization and coordination of academic programs related to hip and knee surgery during national congresses.
  • Promote periodic meetings between surgeons in the field of Hip and Knee Surgery after identifying and updating the entire Mexican community with the most recent advances, in other words, promoting and maintaining the scientific update.

Our most sincere congratulations to Dr. Victor Aguirre, whose training stay in the hip subspecialty in our unit has left us with a deep imprint.

After his formative stay in the Hip Unit, Dr. Víctor Aguirre performs periacetabular osteotomy for the treatment of adult residual dysplasia according to the mini-invasive technique, which in his day, 14 years ago, Ribas learned from Professor Kjeld Søballe and that other doctors of the Unit (Dr Carlomagno Cárdenas) also perform.

As we have already announced through our Twitter account, the reviewers and the scientific editorial confirm their next publication in the Spanish journal of Orthopedics and Traumatology.

This is the description of the periacetabular Ganz mini-invasive technique by Søballe mini-approach (JBJS Am 2008) with the technical variants developed by the Hip Unit itself and its results in the medium term, in a significant number of cases ( 131), which today have exceeded five hundred. It is the greatest experience in this technique in all of southern Europe.

The first signatory, developer and lead author is Dr. Ramírez-Núñez, helped by Dr. Ribas, who is carrying out a line of work and publications on this subject, which will soon bear fruit. From here, our most sincere thanks to the fellows who, during these years, have made possible, with their collaboration, such a great database.

Remember also that Dr. Ribas learned periacetabular osteotomy from the hands of Dr. Robert Trousdale in 2003 during his stay at the Mayo Clinic with Dr. Oliver Marín of Madrid and Dr. Javier Camacho of Mexico City. He started it in September 2003 and in his mini-invasive variant in 2007, after his stay in Denmark with Professor Söballe (one year before its publication in the JBJS Am 2008).

Dr Ribas, for the third consecutive year, participates in the official congress of the Mexican Society of Hip Surgery in the company of famous world-famous surgeons such as Professor Reinhold Ganz, Professor Miguel Cabanela, Professor David Kendoff, Professor Mariano Fernández Fairén and the most recognized hip surgeons in the Central American country.

On this occasion there will even be an extra day of live surgery, in which Dr. Ribas will carry out jointly with expert surgeons from the country trained in the hip unit of Dexeus University Hospital, Dr. Victor Aguirre and Dr. Edwin a periacetabular osteotomy of Ganz but via mini-invasive, which will be commented live to the auditorium by Professor Reinhold Ganz himself.

This is the first time that Dr. Manuel Ribas has performed Ganz periacetabular osteotomy, in his minimally invasive variant approach, in the presence of its inventor, in 1988, the very and very honorable Professor Reinhold Ganz. As always, Dr. Ribas had recognition during his speech; not surprisingly, Dr Ribas translated this technique from German into Spanish in the “Operative Orthopädie und Traumatology” magazine by Springer (1990), published in Spanish by Doyma Publishing.

Dr Ribas always dedicated himself to the translation of articles and techniques published in said magazine during the following 13 years. That meant a great acquisition of knowledge in the specialty of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology. Currently this journal is indexed medline and Dr. Ribas already has published various techniques in the field of hip surgery.

During these days, you will also have the opportunity to give other master readings in the field of femoroacetabular shock surgery, pain surgery in the pubic-inguinal complex (of which it is a world reference, with techniques that bear the same name), of the ruptures of the gluteal tendons at the level of the greater trochanter (the so-called trochanteritis and even trochanteric bursitis), of the acetabular labrum transplant and finally, will also talk about the mini-invasive periacetabular osteotomy in athletes.
