Osteotomy was the main focus of the symposium sponsored by Newclip Technics and run under the auspices of ESSKA in May 2016.
The Newclip plate is called the 'activmotion plate'. It is the leading plate in France for HTO and is literally half the size of its competitors. I have also helped to design a new plate which has now been launched, and will be implanting the first one in the next few weeks. It's very similar but stronger for larger patients
I was privileged to chair the Newclip workshop, where -
So this plate is working very well and it was good to hear that we were all having a similar, very positive experience.
We all had some lovely talks from Patrick Dijan - he’s a very highly respected knee surgeon from Paris, who is one of the best known faces of knee surgery in France, and he also had some very good experiences to present in terms of Newclip’s PSI (Patient Specific Instrumentation) and his experience with distal femoral osteotomy.
In my own workshop that I ran at the venue we were delighted to see 100 people in the room - all coming to hear about the Newclip plate and my experiences with this very small plate, using my minimally invasive procedure and a precision bone wedge.
