Synopsis:

Course deals with design of joint replacement with respect to its lifetime maximization. Biological and mechanical factors limiting lifetime of joint replacement are described and analyzed.

Introduction to arthroplasty - Principles, Substitutions, Materials

Principles of cemented and uncemented fixation

Sliding pairs and wears, biological response to wear particles

Artroplasty of the hip joint - anatomy, biomechanice

Hip arthroplasty - types of replacements and operating procedures, testing

Artroplasty of knee joint - anatomy, biomechanice

Knee arthroplasty - types of replacements and surgical procedures, testing

Arthroplasty of shoulder joint - anatomy, biomechanice

Shoulder arthroplasty - types of replacements and surgical procedures, testing

Arthroplasty of upper limb joints

Arthroplasty of small joints

Oncological and individual replacements

Pre-operative planning
