Kinamed, Inc. provides grant commitment for 2017

Posted by on in Activities

b2ap3_thumbnail_kinamed.pngThe Patellofemoral Foundation Board of Directors is honored to announce that Kinamed, Inc. (Camarillo, CA) has again provided financial support to the Foundation for 2017. Vineet Sarin, Ph.D., President of Kinamed, notified the PFF Board of the grant commitment.

Kinamed has developed the unique KineMatch Patello-Femoral Replacement -- a true custom implant system fabricated specifically for each individual patient suffering from isolated, end-stage patello-femoral disease. Because the device is precisely manufactured to fit the patient's anatomy using CT data, no resection of femoral bone is required, thus preserving bone stock for the future. The design of the front (articulating) and back (bone fitting) sides of the implant are "decoupled" so that optimization of an intimate, bone-sparing fit, as well as proper kinematics and control of patella tracking, can be achieved. Overstuffing is avoided with a deep groove that accomodates the patella, while thicker medial and lateral margins provide stability. Favorable long-term clinical results have been reported. More information is available at the Kinamed website.

This hands-on patellofemoral surgery course is designed to emphasize current anatomic, diagnostic and technical pearls that will help optimize patient outcomes. Participants will discover how to do precision MPFL and MQTFL reconstruction and examine how to move tibial tubercle safely and appropriately.

New, proven, and safe approaches to patellofemoral surgery with hands on cadaver knees availability will be explored in depth.

At the completion of this course the participant will be able to:

  1. Differentiate proper patellofemoral treatments and comprehend logical approaches to treating patients with patellofemoral pain and instability joint prevision techniques
  2. Identify the newest concepts in patellofemoral joint preservation and replacement including how to optimize patellofemoral articular loading and balance by anteromedial tibial tubercle transfer when appropriate
  3. Review and enhance patellofemoral surgical anatomy skills and biomechanics by utilizing cadaver knees

Course App will be available for participants to download at least 1 month prior to the course start date. The app contains:

  • handout materials
  • lab assignments
  • videos
  • registration lists
