12:15 PM – 1:15 PM 

Orthopaedic implants have been extremely successful in improving the quality of life for millions of patients. However, currently there are debates on what are the best clinical practices for implant alignment that will afford patients a best chance for optimal function and outcomes. This portion of our meeting will focus on clinical issues with implant support and alignment in total shoulder arthroplasty from a clinician’s viewpoint and a discussion on how the functional mechanics of the shoulder are best served by an academic engineer researcher. In total knee arthroplasty a discussion on newer alignment techniques and the theory behind kinematic alignment will be presented by a clinician and the issues with TKA joint modeling to determine the effects of implant design and alignment will be given by a corporate engineer.
