About this event
After a successful first edition, the members of the S.A.C (Spine Arthroplasty Community) sub-group of the GECO offer another opportunity to share their experience.
Such as the first edition, this second webinar is entirely dedicated to spine arthroplasty with a focus on a new generation of cervical and lumbar disc prostheses: using viscoelastic technology. Thanks to their monobloc design viscoelastic prostheses are aimed to restore physiological movements providing six degrees of freedom and three-dimensional motion including shock absorption.
The main thread of this webinar is the restoration of the sagittal balance after total disc replacement.
The 4 faculties are:
Moderator: Dr Olivier Ricart (Luxembourg)
I. Sagittal balance and disc replacement : review of the literature.
Dr Alexis Perrin
II. Why it is key to think about sagittal balance when doing a disc prosthesis ?
Pr Jean-Yves Lazennec
III. Sagittal balance : how has it changed since pain started and how can this be reversed ?
Dr Svante Berg
