NYU Langone orthopaedic experts present research, clinical advances at AAOS meeting
Date:2/6/2012

Experts from the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center will present their latest research and clinical findings on diseases of the muscle, tendon, bone and joint at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), February 7-11 in San Francisco, California.

"The introduction of new imaging and research techniques, combined with advances in clinical care, allows our researchers to identify the basic biology of joint tissues and the impact of functional decline due to aging and the onset of osteoarthritis," said Joseph Zuckerman, MD, the Walter A. L. Thompson Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center and past-president of AAOS. "As a result we are able to bring basic science discoveries directly to the bedside and use advanced bioengineering techniques to promote tissue regeneration and improve long-term patient results."

Several members of the faculty are presenting papers and leading discussions on a variety of sub-specialties, including:

**Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty**

Podium Presentation: Thursday, Feb. 9 at 10:50AM

Presenter: Young W. Kwon, MD; Authors: Deepan N. Patel, MD; Brett Young, MD; Ikemefuna Onyekwelu, MD; Joseph D. Zuckerman, MD; and Young W. Kwon, MD, PhD

This presentation will discuss the use of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (rTSA) as a treatment for failed shoulder arthroplasty requiring revision surgery.

**The Effect of Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix on Rotator Cuff Healing**

Podium Presentation: Thursday, Feb. 9 at 2:15PM

Presenters: Laith Jazrawi, MD and Eric Strauss, MD; Authors: Saqib Hasan, BS; Samir Nayyar, MD; Kunal Kalra, MD; Meredith Mayo, BA; Martin Quirno, MD; Laith M. Jazrawi, MD; and Eric Strauss, MD

This study investigates the application of platelet-rich fibrin matrix and the potential for improved regeneration of the tendon-bone insertion site in a rotator cuff repair model by using the formation of fibrous scar tissue, which is structurally and biomechanically different from native tissue.

**The Effect of Arthroscopic Partial Medial Meniscectomy on Tibiofemoral Position and Stability**

Podium Presentation: Thursday, Feb. 9 at 5:45PM

Presenter: Scott Hadley, MD; Authors: Scott Hadley, MD; Sally Arno, MSc; Kirk Campbell, MD; Christopher Bell, MSc; Michael Hall, MD; Orrin Sherman, MD; and Peter Walker, PhD

This study investigates if partial meniscectomy of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus could significantly increase tibiofemoral laxity in the presence of intact cruciate ligaments, and the potential impact on abnormal cartilage loading and early osteoarthritis.

**The Increasing Incidence of Superior Labrum Anterior Posterior Lesion Repairs**

Podium Presentation: Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 11:20AM

Presenter: Andrew Rokito, MD; Authors: Ikemefuna Onyekwelu, MD; Omar Khatib, MD; Samir Nayyar, MD; Saqib Hasan, BS; Joseph D. Zuckerman, MD; Andrew S. Rokito MD; and Young W. Kwon MD, PhD

The data suggests a substantial increase in arthroscopic SLAP repair that is significantly more rapid than the rising rate of outpatient orthopaedic procedures. In addition, there is a noticeable trend in the increasing age of patients who are being treated with arthroscopic SLAP repairs. The reasons behind these changes are yet to be discerned and are likely to be mutlifactorial in origin.

**Hand and Wrist: A Review Course**

Panel Discussion: Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 8:00AM

Moderated by Martin Posner, MD

This panel will discuss the pertinent anatomy, pathophysiology, clinical and imaging findings and treatment of hand and wrist problems that are generally the focus of certifying examinations.

**Spine: A Review Course **

Panel Discussion: Tuesday Feb. 7 at 8:00AM

Moderated by Thomas Errico, MD; John Bendo, MD, panelist

This panel will provide an update on cervical degenerative spine surgery; thoracic and lumbar degenerative spine surgery; spinal trauma surgery and adult spinal deformity surgery.

**Spine Realignment Planning In Adult Deformity: New Tools, Formulas And Techniques**

Panel Discussion: Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 8:00AM

Thomas Errico, MD, panelist

This panel will discuss the treatment of adult spinal deformity and focus on clinical data, new tools and formulas to help improve outcome and avoid complications.

**Knee Osteoarthritis: Viscosupplementation to Cartilage Transplantation, Resurfacing and Procedures**

Panel Discussion: Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 1:30PM

Moderated by Laith Jazrawi, MD; Philip Band, MD and Eric Strauss, MD, panelists

This panel discussion will provide an overview of knee osteoarthritis management and indications for viscosupplementation, PRP, osteotomies, cartilage transplantation, resurfacing, procedures and overall patient selection.

**Trauma: Fractures and Dislocations about the Elbow and Their Adverse Sequelae - Contemporary Perspectives**

Panel Discussion: Thursday Feb. 9 at 10:30AM

Kenneth Egol, MD, panelist

This panel will review clinical cases and surgical videos and address contemporary treatments and controversies regarding traumatic injuries of the elbow, and their sequelae.

**Revision Shoulder Arthroplasty: Indications, Techniques and Results**

Panel Discussion: Friday, Feb. 10 at 10:30AM

Joseph D. Zuckerman, MD, panelist

This panel will discuss the most common complications in shoulder arthroplasty and teach how to manage complications when they occur.

**Pediatrics: Hand and Wrist Problems Orthopods Treat**

Panel Discussion: Friday Feb. 10 at 1:30PM

Moderated by Martin Posner, MD; Nader Paksima, DO, panelist

This panel will discuss the diagnosis and treatment of common hand problems, including fractures of the digits and wrist, acute and chronic problems of CM and MP joints, compressive neuropathies of the median and ulnar nerves and tendon problems (including tennis elbow.)
