ICJR brings in new year with events worldwide.

The International Congress for Joint Reconstruction (ICJR) has a busy few months ahead, with several major conferences and events taking place.

First on the agenda for the orthopedic education organization is its 6th Annual Modern Trends in Joint Replacement conference. This event brings orthopedic opinion leaders and community-based physicians together to interact through case-based, small group, roundtable discussions covering current topics and treatment options for joint replacement, trauma, and sports medicine, as well as live surgeries moderated by expert faculty. The topics covered will be degenerative joint disease of the hip and knee, new technologies in joint replacement, revision total knee and hip arthroplasties, infected total joint arthroplasties, and current controversies in joint replacement. Under the latter topic, experts will discuss whether vitamin E, which recently has been incorporated in many orthopedic implants to impede oxidation and fight infection, should become a standard requirement.

From Dec. 5-6, ICJR will hold its first ever congress in India. Faculty from the United States, United Kingdom, Europe, Australia and Asia are expected to participate in the event.

"We anticipate that up to 400 highly active arthroplasty professionals will participate in this meeting," said Organizing Chairman S. K. S. Marya. "We will also be organizing workshops and interactive symposia on specific issues in current arthroplasty trends."

Then the organization brings its 7th Annual Winter Hip & Knee Course to Colorado in January, where it will cover primary replacement and revision hips and knees as well as the major healthcare issues related to orthopedic surgery. The meeting also will examine issues related to the peri-operative environment, including thrombosis, wound and pain management, blood conservation, quality mandates, practice management and economics.

Later in January, Osaka, Japan, will welcome ICJR's hip congress for the second time, which will cover all topics hip-related including cup position and fixation, surgical approaches, and cutting edge technology in the field. A special luncheon lecture will address the metal-on-metal hip controversy in the United States as well as trends in total hip arthroplasties in the United Kingdom.
