Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Training for Hemophilia and Other Arthritic Conditions

August 4, 2021 to August 5, 2021
UC San Diego Health Hemophilia and Thrombosis Treatment Center: San Diego, California 92121, United States
This 2-day hands-on course was developed to provide training in musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) for evaluation of hemophilic joint disease, but also other arthritic conditions and musculoskeletal abnormalities and syndromes. The main objective of the course is to enable physicians and other health care providers to use MSKUS as a point-of-care imaging tool for diagnosis and treatment of joint pain. In addition, the course has specific elements geared towards hemophilic joint disease: recognition of joint bleeding, synovial hypertrophy and synovitis, cartilage degradation, osteochondral lesions and other structural joint abnormalities. The course also includes a teaching module pertaining to the Joint Tissue Activity and Damage Exam (JADE), a validated ultrasound imaging protocol for hemophilic joints.

Participants are encouraged to complete web modules 1, 2, 4, and 5 cme.ucsd.edu/httc/musksweb.html prior to attending the activity (a total of 2 hours of web-based instructions).

Format: Interactive lectures, case studies, round table discussions, and hands-on scanning.

International Society for Hip Arthroplasty (ISHA) 2021/Ortho Summit

December 11, 2021 to December 14, 2021
The Bellagio, Las Vegas, NV
Welcome To ISHA 2021

Conference Theme: The Science of Hip Preservation

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic which was felt across the world, the Executive Board of ISHA have accepted the kind invitation to combine the ISHA 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting with the Orthopaedic Summit, and hold a combined meeting at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, USA from Saturday, December 11, 2021 until Tuesday, December 14, 2021.

It is recognized that still in many parts of the world, large gatherings an international travel is still very limited, but it is hoped that by the end of year, this combined option offers an exciting possibility to bring together two excellent scientific programmes and offers the best opportunity for the ISHA membership and the Hip Preservation community to be able to hold an in person meeting.

We appreciate that for some, travel restrictions may still be a barrier to attendance, for that reason it is ISHA’s intention to capture the content of the ISHA and Hip Sport program and have this available to members in good standing via the ISHA Academy.
