ICJR CASES: Complex Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty

    Kevin I. Perry, MD, selected 6 challenging cases from his own practice to present for comment during a panel discussion at ICJR’s 12th Annual Winter Hip & Knee Course, The Scary Hip: How to Handle the Difficult Primary THA. These patients had failed non-operative management and were clearly candidates for total hip arthroplasty (THA).

    Dr. Perry started with a relatively easy case and progressed to more difficult and controversial cases, noting that he was sure not everyone on the panel would agree completely with how he had managed these patients. He expected the cases to stimulate discussion and sharing of ideas on techniques and technologies for treating complex primary TKA cases.

    Contributing their experiences and insights to the discussion were panel members Ran Schwarzkopf, MD, MSc; Gregory G. Polkowski II, MD, MSc; William P. Barrett, MD; and Scott M. Sporer, MD, MS.
