Wexham Park Cruciate Ligament Virtual Meeting.
THE BREAKOUT SESSION.

 

Wexham Park Cruciate Ligament Virtual Meeting was Orthopaedic television at its best. 

Despite the constraints of COVID-19 Henry Bourke and Ciaran McGarvey were able to convene a fantastic meeting. The world-class faculty discussed a range of topics from quads tendon harvest techniques  to the role of osteotomy in the ACL deficient knee. 

Joint Operations were very proud to support the meeting and hosted an innovative session ‘The use of Dynamic Bracing in ACL Patients’. Gary Bledsoe presented on his experiences which were then further discussed by Tim Spalding, James Robinson and Henry Bourke.  Over 700 people virtually attended the session which was very well received.

Interesting areas of discussion included bracing post ACL reconstruction. The ‘crash helmet philosophy’ of 99% of the time the brace is not required but 1% of the time it is vital.

Henry Bourke also raised the interesting point of bracing the chronically deficiency ACL patient. Breg have a range of ligament braces including the Axiom-D and Z-12 

Meniscal transplant patients also wear unloading braces post operatively to allow enhanced recovery and a quicker return to weight bearing, as described by Tim Spalding in the video below.
