ICJR ABSTRACTS: New Research on the Direct Anterior Approach
For the first time in the 10-year history of ICJR’s Direct Anterior Approach Hip Course, abstracts highlighting new research on this approach to total hip arthroplasty were solicited from orthopaedic surgery residents and adult reconstruction fellows for presentation at the course.
From all the abstracts received, 6 were chosen for podium presentation at the 10th Annual Direct Anterior Approach Hip Course, and then attendees used the course app to vote for the top abstract.
The winner was John V. Horberg, MD, for the abstract, Dislocation Rates Following Total Hip Arthroplasty via the Direct Anterior Approach Regardless of Spinopelvic Deformity. At the time the abstract was submitted, Dr. Horberg was a fellow in adult reconstructive surgery at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine in Roanoke. He now specializes in joint reconstruction with the Orthopedic Center of Illinois in Springfield.
