Between November 6th and 9th, Professor Dr. Flavio Peirano, a renowned Argentine hip and knee surgeon, head of the Churruca Hospital of the Federal Police of Buenos Aires, visits the Hip Unit, ICATME, Dexeus University Hospital –  Quirónsalud Group.

Dr. Flavio carries out a stay of medical training exchange, with the aim of bringing to Buenos Aires the Superpath technique of implanting hip prostheses with musculoskeletal protection. The Superpath technique (Supracapsular Percutaneous Portal Assisted Total Hip) for the implantation of hip prostheses with protection of muscles, tendons and capsule was introduced in Spain by Drs Cardenas and Ribas back in 2015 after their training and accreditation in San Diego – CA through the SOV program.

From here, other leading specialists in our country such as Dr. Raúl Torres, Jesús Mas, Juan Rivera or Boris García have also developed and expanded the technique.

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 September 19, 20 and 21 in the city of Gant, in Belgium, Dr. Charlemagne Cardenas of the Hip Unit of ICATME, taught together with Dr. Cronin and Sarantos, from the United Kingdom, and Dr. Wade Gofton from Canada, the training course in the SUPERPATH technique for the placement of hip prostheses; With this revolutionary technique it is possible to implant a hip prosthesis if you cut any muscle or resect any ligament, incredibly improving recovery times.

With this course there are already more than 190 surgeons around the world who have received theoretical and practical training from Dr. Cardenas, who was the first in Spain to perform this technique and participates as a director in the courses that are taught each year in Gant, Rotterdam and Madrid.
