On May 24, Dr. Manel Ribas was named Honorary Member of the Russian Hip Society, in the Russian city of Nizhny, Novgorod.

His entry reading, pronounced in English and translated into Russian, has been “Novel soft tissue-sparing mini-invasive techniques in primary total hip replacement” (new techniques of primary hip prosthesis with soft tissue protection).

It is widely known that the Hip Unit is a European reference center and precisely with the figure of Dr Cardenas-Nylander, as well as the Head of Teaching of the entire ICATME department. The Hip Unit provides courses in corpses, training and specialists from South and Central Europe, also from Russia, the USA and Japan.

The Superpath technique has shown, according to data from the Australian Registry, up to a reduction of 91% in taking analgesics to hospital discharge, as well as autonomy in daily life in 85% of cases at 2 weeks.

With the appointment of Dr Manuel Ribas as an honorary member of the Russian Hip Society, a member of the third generation of doctors from the Ribas family revisits Russia 130 years later. 130 years after a doctor of the family-Saga of the Doctors Ribas, the also prestigious professor Dr Manuel Ribas, specialist in Internal Medicine and Epidemiology and former president of the Academy of Medical Sciences of Catalonia and the Balearic Islands until his death, brother of the Pulmonologist Joan Ribas, (different populations of Catalonia take their name as a street or avenue, such as the well-known Avenida del Dr Manuel Ribas and Perdigó de Badalona for example.

Professor Manuel Ribas was the right hand of Dr Bartolomé Robert, who was the mayor of Barcelona. Manuel Ribas never yielded to his work in the service of patients and has in his file one, which he considered a “black stain”: having lost the oppositions in Madrid in a hand to hand with his colleague also Professor Ramón y Cajal.

What I would not know is that two generations later Antoni Ribas, today professor of Oncology at UCLA and president of the International Society of Oncology, discovered immunotherapy against melanoma.

In the circles of the Ribas family, by the way very united, with meetings and family meals, it is said that “if one day Ribas can be a Nobel Prize winner”, Antoni can surely be.

A detail of Professor Manuel Ribas (1888): not knowing German, he moved to make his stay of specialized training in Internal Medicine in Germany. It sounds familiar, right?

Dr. Manuel Ribas, hip surgeon, did his final year’s work in History of Medicine in a seemingly simple way:

“Medical Biography of Professor Manuel Ribas i Perdigó”, year 1981.

Sponsored by Brazilian Hip Society (SBQ), Dr. Manel Ribas as head of the Hip Unit of the Dexeus University Hospital (Quirónsalud group) participates with the presentation of 9 lectures that deal with topics ranging from pathology, its prevention and hip treatment in the young and in the athlete, whether elite or amateur and occasional.

Specialists surgeons from different parts of Brazil, sports doctors and rehabilitators attended this meeting. The event, organized by the well-known Prof. Lafayette Lage of Sao Paulo, was attended by renowned and renowned specialists such as Professor Javier Pérez Torres from Bogotá, Jorge Cruz from Meló, Fernando Leal, Manuel Padín from Oporto, and other renowned specialists from both sides of the Atlantic.

The importance of early detection of mechanical pathology of the hip was highlighted, as well as the treatment of the effects-causing lesions, mini-invasive surgery and its effect on the rapid recovery of patients.

Special emphasis was placed on modern mini-invasive techniques used to protect the capsule and its structures, in patients of all ages with osteoarthritis. Said prevention results in an increase in stability and a faster recovery by reducing the sensation of pain since the pain receptors remain unchanged, as well as the mechanoreceptors, and faster functionality is obtained.

The conference has been presented with a new and interesting format, where the experts sit on the stage, a rapporteur updates current knowledge by way of summary -by the way, many congratulations to the rapporteurs of the different round tables – and then an interactive dialogue is established between the moderator and the assistants.

On this occasion, Dr. Manuel Ribas participated as an expert and moderator at the “Femoroactabular Shock”, “Residual Dysplasia” and “Peripheral Hip Syndromes” (deep gluteus, ischiofemoral, infratuberal and trochanteric) tables. In these days, the current limitations of hip arthroscopy in different areas and the importance of the periacetabular osteotomy in the case of labral lesion due to Residual Dysplasia (insufficiency of femoral head coverage) were highlighted.

The Dexeus University Hospital is a reference in all of Southern Europe in the treatment of Periacetabular Osteotomy by a mini-invasive technique.

Our instrumentalists, Laura De Vazeilles and Vanessa Leal, of the Hip Unit of Icatme, present in the National Nursing Congress the portal-assisted mini-invasive technique for the implantation of hip prostheses.

Regarding other prosthetic implantation techniques, “Superpath” has a very different and specific instrumentation. The success of the mini-invasive technique is multidisciplinary. It is fundamental the participation of all and our team of angular pillar instrumentalists on which we rely and depend.

Thank you very much Laura and Vanessa for being as you are.

Drs Dimitri Kanellopoulos and Vadim Benkovich, from Greece and Israel attend the Hip Unit of the Dexeus University Institute, to train together with Dr Carlomagno Cardenas (specialized instructor, head of Teaching at Icatme) in the mini-invasive technique “Superpath” of implantation of hip prosthesis.

This technique, in which no muscle is disinserted and in which the acetabular component is implanted through an accessory portal, provides less bleeding and allows an early return to daily activities.

Comparative studies with other approaches performed both in North America and in Australia show great differences, both in intra and postoperative bleeding, as well as hospital stay, consumption of analgesia and resumption of daily activities.

The Superpath Technique: Supracapsular Portal Assisted Total Hip is a technique that allows to implant a hip prosthesis without any need to section tendons or dislocate the hip to implant a hip prosthesis, in addition, it keeps intact all the innervation and vascularization of the hip

This is the interval through which the hip is approached without affecting muscles or tendons of both the anterior and posterior part. Those above are only required to be gently and gently separated without cutting them

On November 30, the XXIII Round Table on the prevention and treatment of athlete injuries was held in the Agora Room in Sitges. As every year, the topics have been radiant today: “Myths and truths about sports nutrition”, “Treatment of residual dysplasia in the athlete” or “Chronic posttraumatic encephalopathy”.

Dr. Manel Ribas, before a large audience full of personalities of medicine and the world of sport, said: “The residual dysplasia is not exclusive of an evolutionary sequel of newborns, diagnosed and treated for congenital hip dislocation. Impact on the adolescent can produce an early closure (in its maturation phase) of acetabular triradiate growth cartilage.Accordingly, there is a lack of acetabular coverage of the femoral head “.

After the appearance of the periacetabular osteotomy (1988), different authors in Europeans and Americans have shown an excellent rate of return to sport, either in medium or high impact modalities.

Dear patients,

In light of the news that some media have spread, we must inform our patients that no implant – hip prosthesis, of those that have been and are being implanted in our University Hospital, are subject to withdrawal or alert to the Spanish Agency and international monitoring and control agencies.
We wish to emphasize that all these implants are approved and comply with European regulations.
We hope to transmit to you in this way a message of total tranquility.

Dr Ribas has participated in the VII Estonian Orthopedic Congress, held on 14, 15 and 16 November in the city of Viljandi.

After finishing the congress, Dr Ribas himself commented: “It has been an honor to be able to participate together with distinguished teachers from all over Europe (G. Macheras, N. Reina, C. Lohmann or K. Holen). Professor Katre Masaalu, current president of the “Estonian Association of Traumatology and Orthopedics (ETOS), and Professor A. Mäarson for their love, enthusiasm and great sense of organization. No wonder Estonia has become the 2.0 country par excellence. From here I wish you, as one day, professor Miguel Cabanela told me, never stop your enthusiasm! “.

In addition to the affectionate words of Dr Ribas, we want to record some of the conferences that have been given at this congress.

For example, Professor Nicolás Reina (HU Toulouse) presented a very brilliant presentation on the fundamentals of bone reconstruction in the treatment of avascular necrosis of the femoral head. It will undoubtedly follow in the footsteps of Ficat, Puget and Chirón.

We also want to highlight the words of Professor Lohman (HU Magdeburg) who said: “Do not use local anesthetics in the aspiration of synovial fluid in the hip, because its effect is bactericidal and can influence the detection of bacteria. After the time that Dr Ribas was a fellow of Professor Klaus Steinbrink at the Endoklinil in Hamburg, “We must still insist on something that science had already taught us more than 20 years ago” – Dr Ribas.

For many years we have put different names (Athletic Pubalgia, Sports Hernia, …) to the same concept. After the historic meeting in Doha (Doha Agreement, BJSM-2015), we all agreed to simply call it “Groin Pain”, translated “Inguinal Pain”, to which we will add “related to …” and its classification in three basic groups: pubic ring, hip and others.

To understand hip pain, it is basic in the work of Brian Kelly of the Hospital School for Special Surgery in New York, and to know how to correlate: “The concept of the 4 layers or levels” (“The Layers Concept”).
