Dr. Ribas presents his results with implantation using mini-posterior and supracapsular mini-invasive technique assisted by portal (superpath) with short stems and ceramic-ceramic friction torque in the Congress that has held the European Hip Society Meeting in the city of The Hague this September.
The head of the Hip Unit has presented the mini-invasive periacetabular osteotomy technique for the treatment of hip dysplasia and its results in athlete after more than 15 years of accumulated experience. Since 2006, in his mini-invasive approach described and learned from his creator, Professor Kjeld Söballe.
The majority of patients treated with this technique (95%) resume their sports activity, either with a high or medium impact (UCLA score 8 to 10), with a better clinical and functional profile.
Between 48% and 60% of the calls “Trochanteric bursitis, trochanteritis, – (also known today as Great Trochanter Pain Syndrome – GTPS) – contains, in different stages, injury or even tendon rupture of the gluteus medius and / or minor that will require your Treatment. The risk of not doing so is the very degeneration of the fat (the muscle fibers are transformed into non-contractile fat tissue) of these muscles, which are fundamental in sustaining the body through the lower extremities in activities of daily life.
Dr. Ribas, in 2007, developed a reparative technique for cases of breakage with very good results and that were precisely presented at this congress. This technique has been performed by different members of the unit for years and even in cases of partial rupture, Dr Cárdenas and Dr Astarita repair it using an arthroscopic technique.
