  • Early Registration deadline: Knee arthroplasty conference - 7-9thApril 2005, London, UK

    Knee arthroplasty: Engineering Functionality conference
    Organised by the Institition of Mechanical Engineers (UK) and sponsored by
    Dates: 7-9th April 2005
    Venue: The Royal College of Surgeons, London, UK

    Early Registration deadline: 31st January 2005

    Partial and total knee replacement is the preferred option for the surgical
    management of the arthritic knee in the elderly population and although it
    enjoys considerable success, there is room for improvement. Although
    survivorship rates are impressive, there is a need to improve function, to
    reflect the increasing activity demands of patients. There is also a need
    to increase the repeatability of the procedure to try and reduce variability
    in the post-operative kinematics and enhance the long term performance,
    particularly relevant to the younger patient.

    The conference will comprise of invited lectures, free papers and panel
    discussions. As well as examining the latest advances in assessment methods
    and results, this Conference will explore the implementation of computer
    simulations, minimal invasive techniques and computer assisted surgery in an
    effort to improve function and performance.

    The Conference will bring together surgeons and engineers to address these
    issues and to act as a platform for the future development of knee
    arthroplasty and its alternatives.

    The Conference also features a welcome reception at the Royal College of
    Surgeons on the evening of 7 April 2005, while the Conference Banquet will
    take place in the world-famous Dinosaur Hall of the Natural History Museum
    on the evening of 8 April 2005. Attendance at both events is included in the
    Conference registration fee.
