Post-Traumatic Osteoarthritis; Biology and Outcomes

Track: Podium: Education

Session Number: S300
Date: Mon, Jun 1st, 2020
Time: 8:15 AM - 9:15 AM

Description:

Post-traumatic osteoarthritis now represents at least 12% of all new cases of osteoarthritis and accounts for over $3B in healthcare spending in the U.S. alone. Further, PTOA is now the leading cause of disability in U.S. military personnel. The vast majority of literature to date suggests that PTOA is related to the mechanical effects of joint trauma while emerging research from our group and that of others suggests a primarily biologic response to the initial injury. The objective of this presentation is to provide an update on the biology of PTOA, as well as the differences in PTOA patients and other cohorts with respect to outcomes of joint replacement, which is definitive management for end-stage disease.

This session is sponsored by the Orthopaedic Nursing Certification Board.
