HSS Journal® CME: Periprosthetic Joint Infection in Patients with Inflammatory Joint Disease: a Review of Risk Factors and Current Approaches to Diagnosis and Management
Prevention, early identification, and effective management of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) in patients with inflammatory joint disease (IJD) present unique challenges for physicians. Discontinuing disease-modifying anti-rheumatoid drugs (DMARDs) perioperatively may reduce immunosuppression and infection risk at the expense of increasing disease flares. Interpreting traditional diagnostic markers of PJI can be difficult due to disease-related inflammation.
Anatomy and Physical Examination of the Adult Brachial Plexus
Injuries to the brachial plexus can have devastating consequences for patients. Early recognition of this injury, along with the recent advances that have been made in its treatment, can greatly improve outcomes for patients with injuries to the brachial plexus. General practitioners, orthopaedists/surgeons and other allied health professionals who may manage patients with such an injury will benefit from an increased understanding of brachial plexus anatomy, injury patterns and potential treatments.
Featured Online CME Symposia: Topics in Orthopaedics
The field of musculoskeletal medicine is highly dynamic and rapidly changing. Research findings are resulting in new techniques and clinical guidelines. Orthopaedic surgeons and clinicians are expected to keep abreast of these advances in order to continue to achieve optimal clinical practice and patient care. These modules provide education on timely musculoskeletal topics. Newest activities include metal-on-metal joint replacement, social media and its impact on orthopaedics, and more.
NEW VIDEO ADDED! Surgical technique videos can help bridge the gap between classroom instruction and clinical application and serve as important learning tools for physicians, surgeons, and allied healthcare personnel. These are the first videos in a series from HSS that demonstrate current concepts in orthopaedic surgical treatment and provide relevant instructional content. Newly added: GraftLink All-Inside ACL Graft Preparation.
