As a charge nurse of an orthopaedic trauma theatre i am interested in the view of other colleagues on their practices of re-sterilization of implants such as those used for hip arthroplasty and knee replacement that have been opened in error.should these implants be resterilized or discarded? should it matter if they have been on the scrub table or not?I would like to develop a hospital policy for this such occasion and would appreciate others viewes on the subject.

Live Webcast: Biomet Microplasty ASI Hip Technique
News - Continuing Medical Education
Contributed by AlexF   
Wednesday, 21 December 2020

On Thursday, January 26, 2021 at 5pm EST, Biomet Orthopedics, Inc., and the Texas Center for Joint Replacement present Roger H. Emerson, Jr., MD, performing the Microplasty® ASI (Anterior Supine Intermuscular) Hip Procedure from Presbyterian Hospital of Plano.

The Microplasty® ASI hip approach is truly minimally invasive since no muscles are cut during exposure of the hip joint. Potential benefits for the patient include a rapid return to activities after hip surgery and should minimize some of the muscle atrophy seen with the posterior approach - which necessitates splitting of the Gluteus Maximus muscle and cutting some of the hip rotators. The risk of hip dislocation is minimized by the anterior approach since the posterior soft tissue sling that supports the hip in flexion is less disturbed.
