EOS Imaging Hosts Symposium During American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons Annual Meeting

Experts present benefits of EOS solution in total hip arthroplasty, including the new hipEOS 3.0 surgical simulation and planning software

EOS Imaging Hosts Symposium During American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons Annual Meeting

November 7, 2017 — EOS imaging hosted a symposium entitled “How 3-D Weight-Bearing Planning from EOS Images Contributes to Improving THA Outcomes” during the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) Annual Meeting, Nov. 2-5 in Dalls. The AAHKS Annual Meeting addresses a broad array of scientific topics such as implant design, outcomes, surgical techniques and complications of primary and revision total joint arthroplasty (TJA) for hip and knee surgeons.

The symposium presented the benefits of EOS for total hip arthroplasty (THA) and the company’s hipEOS 3.0 surgical planning software, which received CE Mark in October. hipEOS 3.0 is the latest generation of the surgical simulation and planning software for THA and is part of the EOSapps suite of online 3-D surgical planning solutions (spineEOS, hipEOS, kneeEOS). The EOSapps are based on unbiased, weight-bearing EOS images and an accurate 2-D/3-D patient-specific dataset that automatically selects and position implants in 3-D, enabling surgeons to identify patients at risk and develops customized plans based on each person’s unique anatomy. The current hipEOS release includes a simulation of the patient hip mobility based on EOS functional standing and seated exams.

The symposium included presentations from several notable surgeons:

  • Jonathan Vigdorchik, M.D., NYU Langone
  • An Introduction to pelvic tilt and dynamic assessment: Why it’s important in THA planning to reduce poor outcomes;
  • Denis Nam, M.D., M.Sc., Rush University Medical Center
  • Dislocation multicentric study: Which parameters matter?;
  • David Mayman, M.D., Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS)
  • How 3-D weight-bearing planning anticipates implant size and accounts for patient-specific anatomy; and
  • Pr. Jean-Yves Lazennec, La Pitié-Salpêtrière
  • hipEOS 3.0: A unique 3-D range of motion simulation in sitting and standing positions for optimal implant positioning.
