The official news of the club is echoed, you can access it by clicking here.
On May 23 the Venezuelan Society of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology (SVCOT) organizes an international telematic Congress, with the assistance of specialists from both continents.
Dr Ribas and Cardenas present their achievements and their experience in the diagnosis and treatment of femoroacetabular shock (known in Central and South America as Femoroacetabular Impingement).
With more than 2,000 interventions carried out, the Hip Unit has emerged as one of the benchmarks in the treatment of this pathology, the first cause of pain in the athlete’s hip and the first mechanical cause of arthrosis in said joint.
In addition to exposing cases of femoroacetabular shock, clinical cases of other mechanical hip pathologies that need to be differentiated are presented. The most frequently confused with femoroacetabular shock is residual hip dysplasia. Both cause chondrolabral lesions to evolve freely, but the treatment of the cause is completely different: while femoroacetabular shock is treated with remodeling of the acetabular overlay and femoral hump, residual dysplasia is treated by redirecting the acetabulum to provide physiological coverage . This is obtained through periacetabular osteotomy, a technique of which this Unit is a reference center in Europe for its mini-invasive technique.
With a worldwide telematic audience of more than 500 medical specialists in hip arthroscopy, Dr Cárdenas places his emphasis on the surgical treatment of space conflicts around the hip, also treatable by arthroscopy.
Today Dr Cárdenas is considered one of the world’s greatest specialists in the field.
The Press Association of the newspaper La Razón, one of the largest circulation in Spain, has awarded the head of the Hip unit of the Dexeus University Hospital in the section of hip traumatology among applicants from different parts of Spain.
In his speech Ribas thanked the members of his team and orthopedics and traumatology service of Icatme. Dr. Charlemagne Cardenas member of the Unit, Dr. Eugenio Jimeno, medical director of Icatme and Dr. David Campos member of Icatme accompanied Ribas at the event, held at the prestigious Westin Palace in Madrid.
This recognition coincides with the third consecutive year in which Icatme is in first place as the best orthopedic surgery and traumatology service in Spain according to the IEH (Hospital Excellence Index, prepared through a vote by the Spanish doctors of the different hospitals in the country).

In this edition, in which doctors, hip surgeons, specialists in rehabilitation and sports medicine participate, the most up-to-date knowledge and techniques in the field of arthroscopy, osteotomies in young adults, treatment of injuries have been discussed of cartilage and acetabular labrum, accelerated and specific functional recovery, labrum transplants.
Important has been the contribution of the Unit with the themes:
From here, we want to send our most sincere congratulations from Drs. Oliver Marín and Luís Perez-Carro, indefatigable organizers of this event, who have made it possible for Madrid to successfully host a contest of this caliber.

The seventh edition of the joint congress between AEA (Spanish Arthroscopy Association) and SEROD (Spanish Knee Society) took place on May 22, 23 and 24 at the Exhibition Center of the city of Santander.
Dr Cardenas, as the only representative of the Hip Unit, participated with the paper: “Pathogenesis and clinical diagnosis of the peritrochanteric space”, where we talked about the so-called “hip bursitis or trochanteritis”.
Yesterday, May 13 was a very intense day, 9 hip surgeries in which visitors from Mexico, Portugal, Romania, Spain (Madrid) and Japan, accompanied Dr Cardenas, head of the teaching unit of ICATME, in his interventions of prosthetic surgery and preservation surgery.
The Hip Unit receives around 5o annual visitors who request to attend the interventions of the members of our team. Once again, the Hip Unit proves to be a benchmark in the sector.
A group of surgeons from the Philippines have attended the ICATME Hip Unit at the Dexeus University Institute to receive a master class by Dr Cardenas on total hip arthroscopy.
Dr Cardenas is responsible for teaching at ICATME.
Drs Dimitri Kanellopoulos and Vadim Benkovich, from Greece and Israel attend the Hip Unit of the Dexeus University Institute, to train together with Dr Carlomagno Cardenas (specialized instructor, head of Teaching at Icatme) in the mini-invasive technique “Superpath” of implantation of hip prosthesis.
This technique, in which no muscle is disinserted and in which the acetabular component is implanted through an accessory portal, provides less bleeding and allows an early return to daily activities.
Comparative studies with other approaches performed both in North America and in Australia show great differences, both in intra and postoperative bleeding, as well as hospital stay, consumption of analgesia and resumption of daily activities.
The Superpath Technique: Supracapsular Portal Assisted Total Hip is a technique that allows to implant a hip prosthesis without any need to section tendons or dislocate the hip to implant a hip prosthesis, in addition, it keeps intact all the innervation and vascularization of the hip
This is the interval through which the hip is approached without affecting muscles or tendons of both the anterior and posterior part. Those above are only required to be gently and gently separated without cutting them
The British motorcyclist has been successfully operated on for his fracture of the femur by Dr Cárdenas assisted by Drs. Astarita and Chacón.
