Track 1: Orthopedic Surgery:
Orthopedic surgery or orthopedics is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders. Orthopedic trauma care covers the spectrum of simple isolated fractures to severe life threatening accidents with multiple broken bones. While many fractures can be treated very well by general orthopedic surgeons, some can benefit from fracture specialists. More significant injuries with multiple broken bones, compound fractures and fractures near a joint, and fractures of the pelvis are more difficult to treat, and benefit the most from specialized care. Additionally, problems with healing including nonunions, infections (osteomyelitis) and healing with poor alignment (malunion) are often treated by fracture specialists.
In this track discussions will be carried out regarding the orthopedic surgeries, orthopedic surgeons and trauma in orthopedic injuries, it involves, Periprosthetic Fractures, Traumatic Brachial Plexus Injuries, Radial Mononeuropathy, Sternoclavicular Joint Injury, Peripheral Nerve Injuries, Hand surgery, Knee surgery and Hip Surgery, Orthopedic specialists and knee specialists & orthopedic specialists, Spine Surgery, Spine orthopedic Surgeon related to orthopedic spine, Bone Trauma, Interphalangeal Dislocation, Total joint construction, Orthopedic Surgeon UK, Shoulder and Elbow Surgery and knee surgery. It is essential to conduct orthopedic surgery conferences in order to convey the recent advances in orthopaedic surgery.
Across nearly the entire U.S. orthopedic trauma device market ,orthopedic implants, devices related to orthopedic spine ,titanium materials are gaining popularity among orthopedic surgeons, knee specialists, orthopedic specialists, and pediatric surgeons as a superior product in comparison to their stainless steel counterparts. One exception is the conventional hip screw market where stainless steel comprises over 75% of the market.
Track 2: Orthopedic Trauma
Orthopedic trauma care covers the spectrum of simple isolated fractures to severe life threatening accidents with multiple broken bones. The tumors take the form of cartilage-capped bony projections or outgrowth on the surface of bones. It is characterized as a type of overgrowth that can occur in any bone where cartilage forms bone. Tumors most commonly affect long bones in the leg, pelvis, or scapula. Osteonecrosis is a process where the blood flow to the bone cells greatly decreases; the cells may die, causing the bo ne to collapse, because the bone and bone marrow of the human body are made of living cells that need a steady blood supply to stay healthy. Osteonecrosis can lead to pain, arthritis and limited use of affected joints. Some people may even need joint replacement surgery.Muscular dystrophy is a group of muscle diseases that weaken the musculoskeletal system and hamper locomotion. Muscular dystrophies are characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins, and the death of muscle cells and tissue. Atrophy and weakness of the limb muscles are extremely common in rheumatoid arthritis, the most likely causes being inhibition and disuse as a result of painful movement.
Track 3: Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy helps in restoring normal body function and preventing disability arising from disease, trauma or injury. The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible. Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease. Physiotherapists use exercise programs to improve mobility and strengthen muscles, joint manipulation and mobilization to reduce pain and stiffness, muscle re-education to improve control airway clearance techniques and breathing exercises, soft tissue mobilization, acupuncture, hydrotherapy.
Track 4: Pharmacological Treatment
Numerous drugs are available to control the signs of osteoarthritis secondary to HD. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pain relievers can be used during bouts of lameness. These drugs inhibit prostaglandin release which decreases the inflammatory process and therefore, less pain is produced. These medications can also be given an hour or so before known periods of exercise to decrease inflammation. Side effects may be seen in some dogs which include vomiting, diarrhea, and in appetence thus they can be very useful in orthopedics. Various alternative drug therapies known as disease-modifying osteoarthritis agents can be used. According to the orthopedic manufacturers, these drugs work by providing the raw materials to enhance the synthesis of glycosaminoglycan and hyaluronate that cannot be adequately produced in the diseased arthritic joint. These are the molecules that form proteoglycan, which is an important constituent of the hyaline cartilage that lines the joint. These drugs may also enhance the synthesis of other macromolecules by cartilage cells that inhibit degradative enzymes produced within the arthritic joint. Controlled studies have been reported about the positive effects in people for osteoarthritis. A number of prescription and over-the-counter drugs help relieve the pain, swelling and other symptoms that come with fractured bones, injured ligaments, disease, aging and degeneration of joints and bones. Managing pain is important for recovery. Severe pain or pain that doesn't go away can lead to depression, difficulty sleeping, limitations on ability to move around and changes to daily activities. All of these can slow down healing and prolong a painful bone condition. Orthopedic nursing should be done by the orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practioner .Orthopedic medical supplies and orthopaedics consumables market is at at hight growth rate in these recent years.
This track will discuss about the various types of drugs used for the orthopedic disease condition, it includes, Orthopedic surgeons & Knee specialists Meeting, Corticosteroids, Muscle relaxants, Narcotic pain relievers, Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), Osteoporosis drugs, Pain relievers, Casts, Anti-Inflammatory Medications. For this disease the orthopedic medical supplies manufactured by the orthopedic manufacturers are very well used.
The orthopedic consumables market including anchors and staples is expected to grow over the next five years. The market will likely reach a value of $457 million by 2019. Anchors form a major share of the total orthopedic consumables market, contributing to about 80 percent of the market share in 2019.
Track 5: Sports : Complementary Approaches
Sports medicine is the medical subspecialty that is generally concerned with one overarching mission: the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of illness and injury related to participation in any sports and athlete exercise physiology. To accomplish a mission as comprehensive as this, much depends on having a multidisciplinary, complementary approach to health care delivery that uses both operative procedures and nonsurgical techniques. Sports medicine provides a means of enhancing athletic performance while preventing athletic injury. All sports have a risk of injury. In general, the more contact in a sport, the greater the risk of a traumatic injury. Most frequent sports injuries are sprains, strains and stress fractures caused when an abnormal stress is placed on tendons, joints, bones and muscle.
Track 6: Orthopedic Rehabilitation
Orthopedic Rehabilitation focuses on problems of the musculoskeletal system - muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons. Orthopedic rehabilitation is a form of therapy that treats a large variety of conditions that affect the skeletal and muscular systems. Orthopedic clinicians diagnose, manage and treat injuries of the musculoskeletal system and rehabilitate patients right after orthopedic operations. Orthopedic Rehabilitation is essential to restore the patient's activity, strength and motion right after injury or surgery. Orthopedic patients typically have deficiencies and weaknesses which could be eliminated or alleviated via specific targeted workouts. A wide range of orthopedic injuries and disabilities, including amputations, joint replacements, fractures, neck and lower back disorders and other orthopedic complications, are treated with orthopedic rehabilitation.
Track 7: Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears down over time. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine. Osteoarthritis often gradually worsens, and no cure exists. But staying active, maintaining a healthy weight and other treatments may slow progression of the disease and help improve pain and joint function. Sometimes called degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints and this condition in pediatric orthopedics and orthopedic spine can be treated by pediatric surgeons. It occurs when the cartilage or cushion between joints breaks down leading to pain, stiffness and swelling pain. Osteoarthritis (OA) is caused by aging joints, injury, and obesity. OA symptoms include joint pain and stiffness. Treatment depends on the affected joint, including the hand, wrist, neck, back, knee, and hip, and involves medication and exercise. Deficiency in knee joints can be treated by the knee specialists by performing knee surgery.
This track discuss about different bone disorders and most specifically about Osteoarthritis, other topics includes: Bone density measurement, Hip osteoarthritis and osteoporotic fracture, Osteochondrodysplasia, Osteoarthritis, Pathophysiology of Osteoarthritis, Bone Fracture, Marrow adiposity, Knee osteoarthritis, Myeloma bone disease, Bone Tissue Engineering and Scaffold support, Bone Tissue Engineering and Scaffold support. Orthopedic spine surgeries are leading surgeries in global orthopedics.
There were more than 1.6 million total trauma fixation procedures performed in the United States last year. The majority of the trauma-related bone fixation procedures were in the shoulder, upper arm, forearm, wrist, hand, fingers, hip, femur, tibia/fibula, ankle, foot and toes and knee, which can be fixed by the knee surgery by knee specialists. The knee surgery is very well carried out by the advanced orthopedic implants manufactured by the orthopedic manufacturers.
Track 8: Orthopedics: Medical Devices
Orthopedic medical devices are very successful in restoring mobility, reducing pain, and improving the quality of life for a large number of individuals. More than one million joint implants are currently produced every year, with a growth rate of nearly 9%. Lifetime and safety expectations continually increase, which place ever tighter requirements on the development and manufacturing processes. Both shape and roughness are critical parameters that must be controlled to ensure proper function and lifetime of orthopedic implants. The result is maximized lifetime for a wide variety of implants, from hip balls and cups to knees, elbows, and spinal implants. Joint replacement products include devices for hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and finger arthroplasty procedures. Orthopedic medical devices are a great innovation in the field of orthopedics.
Track 9: Arthritis
Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints. There are over 100 different forms of arthritis. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease), a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other arthritis forms are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused by joint infection. Arthritis is a rheumatic disease that has symptoms of pain, limited movement, swelling and pain in connective tissues. There are almost 50 million people in the United States who experience some type of arthritis. Arthritis is chronic or rarely changes and can progress slowly, and unfortunately many of the causes of arthritis are unknown. Arthritis literally means inflammation of one or more joints. Arthritis is frequently accompanied by joint pain. Joint pain is referred to as arthralgia. This track will discuss about Arthritis and its different types as well as treatment modalities.Ankylosing spondylitis, Juvenile idiopathic arthritis, Septic arthritis, Gout and pseudo-gout, Physical and occupational therapy, Arthroscopic surgery, Rheumatoid arthritis.
The global market revenue for advanced orthopedics grew from $35.3 billion in 2013 to $36.4 billion in 2014. Additionally, the industry will see a compound annual growth rate of approximately 3% through 2019. By that year, the advanced orthopedics market is expected to reach revenues of $42.2 billion and the number of orthopedic medical supplies and orthopedic implants will be manufactured by the orthopedic manufacturers in largescale. Veterniray orthopedics devices also are in good demand at the present day as there is increase in pet culture at homes around the globe.
Track 10: Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that typically affects the small joints in your hands and feet. Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity. Signs and symptoms ofrheumatoid arthritis may include: Tender, warm, swollen joints, Morning stiffness that may last for hours, Firm bumps of tissue under the skin on your arms (rheumatoid nodules). Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a form of arthritis that causes pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of function in your joints. It can affect any joint but is common in the wrist and fingers. An autoimmune disorder, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body's tissues. In addition to causing joint problems, rheumatoid arthritis sometimes can affect other organs of the body — such as the skin, eyes, lungs and blood vessels, at this point of time orthopedic nursing should be done by the orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practioner with utmost care.
This track discuss about the Rheumatoid Arthritis, its physiology and possible treatments such as Histopathology – Synovium, Cartilage, Bone and Synovial Cavity, Inflammatory Mediators in RA,Steroids and NSAIDs,Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, Immunosuppressants & TNF-alpha inhibitors, Tendon repair & Joint fusion,Total joint replacement, Pediatric Rheumatology and Pediatric orthopedics. This process of surgeries will be done by the Orthopedic specialists, knee specialists, pediatric surgeons and orthopedic surgeons.
The global rheumatology therapeutics market was estimated to be worth $17.1 billion in 2011, having grown at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.4% from 2005, and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% to $23.8 billion by 2018. The orthopedic implants , rheumatology equipment and orthopedic medical supplies are in great demand and have a largescale exports in the global market and are being manufactured at a very large scale by the orthopedic manufacturers.
Track 11: Orthopedics: Diagnostic Techniques
An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. The technology is similar to that used by sonar and radar, which help the military detect planes and ships. An ultrasound allows your doctor to see problems with organs, vessels, and tissues—without needing to make an incision. Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention. Medical imaging seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, as well as to diagnose and treat disease. Medical imaging also establishes a database of normal anatomy and physiology to make it possible to identify abnormalities. Although imaging of removed organs and tissues can be performed for medical reasons, such procedures are usually considered part of pathology instead of medical imaging. In knee surgery also medical imaging plays an important role. The major orthopedic manufacturers of the global market concentrate much on medical imaging devices than other orthopedic implants and supplies. The devices used in the pediatric orthopedics, orthopedic spine surgery, and veterinary orthopedics are in high demand in the global market.
Besides Ultrasound and medical imaging this track discuss about the following topics as well. Ultrasonography, Musculoskeletal imaging in rheumatology, Ultrasound elastography, 3D Ultrasound imaging for musculoskeletal tissues, Bone Mineral Density Measurements Using DXA, Novel Metal Suppression Techniques, MR Arthrography, Tomosynthesis. Advanced orthopedic spine imaging devices are used by the by knee specialists, pediatric surgeons and the related surgeons of pediatric orthopedics. The global orthopedic device market and orthopedic implants was valued at $29.2 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach $41.2 billion by 2019. The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.9 % over the next five years.
Track 12 : Arthropathy
Arthropathy is a collective term for any disease of the joints. A myriad of arthropathic disorders can afflict the joints, including sacroiliitis which causes inflammation in the sacroiliac joint, Charcot's joints which leads to the degeneration of a joint due to nerve damage, and arthrogryposis which results in joint contractures. The enteropathic arthropathies are a group of rheumatologic conditions that share a link to gastrointestinal (GI) pathology. The inflammatory myopathies are a group of diseases that involve chronic muscle inflammation, accompanied by muscle weakness. Another word for chronic inflammation of muscle tissue is myositis. Muscle inflammation may be caused by an allergic reaction, exposure to a toxic substance or medicine, another disease such as cancer or rheumatic conditions, or a virus or other infectious agent, Orthopedic nursing should be done by orthopedic nurse and orthopedic nurse practioners with care in such conditions. The chronic inflammatory myopathies are idiopathic, meaning they have no known cause. They are thought to be autoimmune disorders, in which the body’s white blood cells (that normally fight disease) attack blood vessels, normal muscle fibers, and connective tissue in organs, bones, and joints.
Under this track various topics will be discussed which will explore various aspects of these diseases such as Diagnosis of myopathies, Spondylarthropathy, Anti-synthetase syndrome, Reactive arthropathy, Enteropathic arthropathy, Diabetic arthropathy, Crystal arthropathy.
Worldwide incidence of inheritable myopathies is about 14 percent. Of all inheritable myopathyies, central core disease accounts for 16 percent of cases; nemaline rod myopathy accounts for 20 percent; centronuclear myopathy accounts for 14 percent; and multicore myopathy accounts for 10 percent.Worldwide incidence of inflammatory myopathies is about 5–10 per 100,000 people.
Track 13 : Orthopedic Degenerative Diseases
Every bone, tissues and tendon in the body is a part of the skeleton system and a potential contributor to orthopedics. Disorders are ailments, injuries or diseases that cause knee problems, whiplash, dislocated shoulder, torn cartilages, foot pain and fibromyalgia. These are only a few of the known orthopedic disorders. There are as many treatments for orthopedic disorders as there are problems and injuries in the muscles, ligaments and joints. One of the most significant orthopedic health problems today, low back pain, can be caused by overuse and strenuous activities, improper use and exposure to continual vibrations. Traumas or injuries to the back can cause chronic low back pain and degeneration of the vertebrae is a definite cause of low back pain. Orthopedics and its related disorders cover the gamut from tendons, bones to ligaments and back again. Pediatric orthopedics also deals with the surgery related diseases.
Under this Track we are going to discuss various disorders which affect the overall skeleton system which includes: Osteochondroma, Muscle Injuries and Disorders, Low Back Pain, Pain Relief Therapies, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Joint Infection, Spinal Disorders & Therapies, orthopedic spine, Dupuytren’s Contracture.
The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis with the aging of the US population, the prevalence of doctor-diagnosed arthritis is expected to increase in the coming decades. By the year 2030, an estimated 67 million (25% of the projected total adult population) adults aged 18 years and older will have arthritis.
