Skymedical has organized a webinar dedicated to cemented total hip prosthesis. The session was attended by several experienced specialists and moderated by Dr. Pedro Marques and Dr. António Figueiredo. The event took place on the 27th of May and has received many accolades.
Currently, in Portugal, around 12.000 hip prostheses are carried out each year. The reasons that lead patients to undergo this type of intervention are centred on the pathologies of the hip, which cause joint wear and, in turn, pain, deformity, stiffness and shortening of the lower limb. The cemented prosthesis technique uses bone cement to fix the prosthesis to the bone and is applied to patients with osteoporosis or to those whose rehabilitation must be accelerated.
The webinar promoted and formalized the encounter among specialists in this surgical procedure, namely, Dr. Carlos Evangelista (Hospital de Sant’Ana), Dr. Sérgio Gonçalves (University Hospital Center of Central Lisbon), Dr. Eurico Monteiro (Entre Douro e Hospital Center Vouga), Dr. António Mateus (University Hospital Center of São João) and Dr. António Murcia Asensio (Hospital General Universitario Reina Sofia).
For almost two hours, the 30 participants attended the discussion about the Cemented PTA, which included sharing techniques, approaches, results and even different perspectives on the technique.
Skymedical’s initiative underlines its commitment to healthcare and its professionals, combining knowledge, trust and proximity, and continues to add value through the sharing of experiences.
