Supported by the Orthopaedics team, PEI recently hosted a Corail® Pinnacle® Training Course in Croke Park. There were 26 registrars in attendance with 6 supporting faculty. Faculty leading this course included Prof David Beverland, Mr. Adrian Cassar-Gheiti, Mr. Paul Curtin, Mr. Paul Magill, Mr. Colin Murphy and Mr Sven O’ hEireamhoin.
The course consisted of a combination of didactic lectures, case discussions, faculty demonstrations and dry bone workshops focused on arthroplasty. Topics covered included indications, templating, design rationale and options of the Corail® and Pinnacle® hip systems. This provided attendees with the opportunity to familiarise themselves with surgical workflow, instrumentation, and techniques.
