Once again, the Icatme Hip Unit participates in a scientific event of great impact. The most innovative strategies in the prosthetic exchange are analyzed in this congress and in it prominent figures, both European and from the other side of the ocean, participate.

The fact that Dr Ribas participates in this congress is not accidental. In the early 1990s, Dr Ribas was trained in replacements of infected hip and knee prostheses in the world-famous Endoklinik in Hamburg with Drs. Steinbrink, Roig, Engelbrecht and Dr Lars Frommelt. The latter is considered today the largest microbiologist of the musculoskeletal system in the world.

Upon his return to Spain, 10 years before his last long training stay at the Mayo Clinic, Ribas shared the cases of septic replacement with Frommelt and studied their antibiotic application strategies in acrylic cements.

Today, with the new technical advances, the scientific community meets biannually in Philadelphia to establish a framework of consensus on these therapies (“Philadelphia Consensus”). Spain was behind the US and the United Kingdom the country with the largest number of delegates, just ahead of Germany.

The Spanish Society of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology (SECOT) through its website and in App has been the first to translate the Philadelphia Consensus from English to Spanish. The Spanish Society of Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology has also established a Consensus Document.

In the months of October and November, Dr. Vittorio Bellotti was able to participate, through the European Hip Society, in the daily work in these orthopedic centers of excellence in hip surgery.

He has been able to be in hip prosthetic implantation interventions through another mini-invasive approach, another surgical school, periacetabular osteotomy for hip dysplasia, precisely in the place where the latter was born.

Gone are the end of the eighties, when Dr. Ribas visited Dr Ganz in the same hospital overnight in the round trip on the train TALGO Barcelona – Bern.

As of the end of 2003, Dr. Ribas began performing said osteotomy for the treatment of dysplasia, only that in 2006 he modified the approach to perform it by the mini-invasive method, nowadays only available to few centers in the world.

Between November 6th and 9th, Professor Dr. Flavio Peirano, a renowned Argentine hip and knee surgeon, head of the Churruca Hospital of the Federal Police of Buenos Aires, visits the Hip Unit, ICATME, Dexeus University Hospital –  Quirónsalud Group.

Dr. Flavio carries out a stay of medical training exchange, with the aim of bringing to Buenos Aires the Superpath technique of implanting hip prostheses with musculoskeletal protection. The Superpath technique (Supracapsular Percutaneous Portal Assisted Total Hip) for the implantation of hip prostheses with protection of muscles, tendons and capsule was introduced in Spain by Drs Cardenas and Ribas back in 2015 after their training and accreditation in San Diego – CA through the SOV program.

From here, other leading specialists in our country such as Dr. Raúl Torres, Jesús Mas, Juan Rivera or Boris García have also developed and expanded the technique.

During the ISHA 2019 Congress, held in the city of Madrid, Dr Ribas, head of the Hip Unit made a presentation in which he related his experience in the miniopen treatment of tendon ruptures of medium and minor gluteus.

The painful syndrome of the greater trochanter (GTPS) is an underestimated pathology of a huge prevalence in the general population, between 10 and 25% of the population suffers from this syndrome.

Between 48 and 60% of patients diagnosed with GTPS have medium or smaller gluteal tears that can degenerate into muscle fat tissue irreversibly if the tears are not treated properly.

Teaching of the mini-invasive technique for the treatment of femoroacetabular shock of the hip, in the German Course of Continuous Training for hip surgeons that has been held in the city of Essen.

Under the title of “Modern mini-invasive hip techniques”, both the mini-invasive technique for the treatment of femoroacetabular shock, by Prof Marco Ezechieli, as well as the previous approach of Madera and the Superpath technique for the implantation of Total hip prostheses, well-known techniques of which the Hip Unit of the Dexeus University Hospital (Quirónsalud group) was already a pioneer in its day. We are very happy with the advances and dissemination of these techniques, in addition to the mini-invasive periacetabular osteotomy for Residual Dysplasia such as hip arthroscopy, which make our work the daily work.

Soon German doctors will begin their superspecialized training in our center.

Professor Marco Ezechieli, a well-known expert hip surgeon, did part of his superspecialized training at the Hip Unit of Dexeus University Hospital.

On this occasion, the XXI Congress of the Spanish Society of Hip Surgery was held in the city of Elche, Valencian Country and was able to count on the presence of Dr Ribas, chief member of the Hip Unit.

Dr. Ribas, 15 years after the publication of his article “Current evidence in the treatment of femoroacetabular shock” in the Spanish Journal of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology of the article, has made a presentation on the evidences of this pathology.

In his presentation, Dr. Ribas pointed out, point by point, all those evidences that today doctors and patients should know. The most outstanding, with the highest level of evidence, is that it has been shown that the surgical treatment of femoroacetabular shock presents better clinical-functional results than the best non-surgical treatment and simply rehabilitation.

Different randomized, multicenter, comparative studies (level of evidence 1) have been carried out that corroborate this. These studies have been published even in high-impact scientific journals such as “The Lancet.
