136310| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Failed Back Syndrome: Why Pelvic Incidence & Sagittal Balance is Key|

Even after procedures with the best spinal surgeons patients may experience Failed Back Syndrome (FBS). Spinal surgery can be up to 95% successful, however, with symptoms ranging from a constant dull ache to a stabbing or shooting sensation, it is important to understand what to look out for in the 5% who may experience FBS, and how we can help alleviate the pain.

Consultant Complex Spinal Surgeon, Mr Darren Lui, will be joining us for this interactive webinar to explore the intricacies of why spinal fusion surgery often fails, and why the pelvic incidence and sagittal balance is key. We will be discussing how it permeates all aspects of spinal pathology and what can be done to help your patients.

We will be first understanding what Failed Back Syndrome is in its various forms, and how it appears often in the case of spinal fusion surgery. This will include an investigation into sagittal balance and coronal balance, where we will learn about why the parameters are so important.

Conservative management techniques, such as activity modification, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), corticosteroid injections and physical therapy, will be examined as a course of action. When these fail, however, surgical approaches may be necessary, and we will be looking at when to refer onto Mr Lui. He will be delving into anterior reconstruction, posterior reconstruction and osteotomies, as well as minimally invasive techniques and robotic procedures.

From a multidisciplinary or MDT perspective, we will be considering how healthcare practitioners can work together to prevent further pain for the patient and reach a successful outcome.

If Failed Back Syndrome is holding your patients back, join us for this fascinating webinar to find out more!

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Speaker: Consultant Complex Spinal Surgeon, Mr Darren Lui

136223| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Movement Disorders – Managing Parkinson’s & Other Conditions|

According to NICE, Parkinson’s disease is ‘one of the commonest neurological conditions’ affecting ‘up to 160 people per 100,000, with an annual incidence of 15–20 per 100,000. Many population studies have shown the rising prevalence of Parkinson’s with age (up to 2% of the population aged 80 and over)’ with ‘around 1 in 7 cases diagnosed below the age of 60 years’.

Whether it is Parkinson’s, dystonia, ataxia, chorea, myoclonus or tics, we will be delving into the differential diagnosis of movement disorders and their management, focusing particularly on Parkinson’s in the second half of the webinar.

Consultant Neurologist, Dr Tabish Saifee will be joining us to give us his insight into the topic. Having published over 50 peer-reviewed papers related to movement disorders and been the principal investigator for a number of clinical trials for Parkinson's disease, Dr Saifee has a plethora of knowledge and experience.

Firstly, we will be focussing on defining movement disorders where there is too little movement (hypokinetic) or too much movement (hyperkinetic), such as tremor or dystonia. The features and symptoms of each disorder will be explored by Dr Saifee and we will be discussing the key approaches to treatments, deciding which will give your patients the best quality of life.

Taking a deep-dive into Parkinson’s disease in the second half, we will be asking what are the latest findings in research and how can we apply this in practice? Dr Saifee will be covering investigations such as blood tests, MRI and DAT SPECT, and utilising case studies. We will also be considering vital management techniques, such as allied therapies which you can take back to your clinic, medications and 'advanced treatments', including neurosurgical options.

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

136222| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Pain & The Brain – An Exploration of the Connections|

The question of whether there is a connection between physiological pain and the brain is a complex one, and there is still lots to be explored!

We have invited Consultant in Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine, Dr Deepak Ravindran, to examine the topic in anticipation of his upcoming book, The Pain-Free Mindset: 7 Steps to Taking Control and Overcoming Chronic Pain, which covers the matter in depth. This aims to be an interactive educational webinar on understanding the link between pain mechanisms and the role of the brain in processing and modulating the pain.

In the last 20 years, developments in neuroscience and functional imaging have helped us understand what happens when painful signals are perceived and processed differently. They have helped us understand how emotions can affect pain and as such we can even question whether pain is a sensation or an emotion! All in all, there is enough evidence to explain why the 400 year old cartesian model has gone past its sell-by date. During this webinar you will learn how and why this evidence has a new role to play in clinical settings to help your patients.

The second session will focus on the common pain conditions, such as low back pain, fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis, and the latest International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) diagnosis for chronic primary pain and nociplastic pain. We will also be covering how to view this diagnosis in terms of the latest understanding of the brain and its role.

The evening will provide the attendees with time to discuss and clarify any other issues around this fascinating intersection of mind and body.

135835| Oryon Develop| Webinar: Getting Hip With The Kids! Paediatric & Subsequent Hip Disorders|

Paediatric hip conditions incurred through injury or malformation can be extremely concerning for parents and patients alike, particularly if the condition continues or develops further into adolescence or adulthood. Sign up for this comprehensive webinar with Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Professor Tahir Khan, to discuss paediatric hip problems, learn how to spot pathologies early on and understand the longer-term sequelae of these later in life.

We will begin by examining children’s conditions, including Hip Dysplasia, Perthes Disease, Slipped Upper Femoral Epiphysis and Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI). Looking at their aetiologies and analysing the symptoms and red-flags to look out for, we will be deciding on the best-practice investigations to request, in order to make an accurate diagnosis. Using case studies, Prof. Khan will be demonstrating how to identify these pathologies, utilising diagnostic imaging and physical examination. We will be weighing up the best treatments for each condition and deciding whether conservative management is sufficient for the child or whether surgery is necessary, keeping the child’s best interests in mind. 

We will then focus on adolescent hip pain. Prof. Khan will be advising us on the changes the body can go through, and how to recognise the presentation of an advanced condition. Residual dysplasia of the hip and femoral head deformities are two of the most prominent disorders which can cause problems in adults. We will explore the pathophysiology and epidemiology of the conditions, understanding how they develop, before learning how they can cause problems later on in life. We will again be assessing the best rehabilitation methods; both in operative and non-operative methods. 

Look out for the early signs in your patients, be they children or adults, and be equipped to deal with them even when complications arise.

 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the hip conditions which can develop in children and how you might have to deal with them differently, including investigations and management
  • Enhance your knowledge on conditions which develop and can cause problems in adolescence and adulthood 
  • Be able to recognise the best-practice management techniques depending on the condition and age of the patient

 

Agenda 

  • Hip problems in children
  • Sequelae to paediatric hip issues
  • Management of hip problems in adults and children

We will be examining the language of spinal cancer, demystifying tumours, neoplasm and metastatic terminology. Then, discussing the types of spinal cancer encountered in the spine, we will be looking at the ‘hows and whys’: how does it get there and what predisposes the patient to getting various forms of cancer? For accurate diagnosis, it is important to know what the relevant tests and imagery are, and what constitutes a spinal emergency. Mr Chatterjee will present a debate on what can and can’t be done for cancer patients. Lastly, we will be understanding the medico-legal aspects of spinal cancer in court.

About this course

What’s the latest evidence about optimal management of CKD? What still remains controversial?

Chronic kidney disease is a common problem seen in small animal practice, particularly in cats. Although the condition can rarely, if ever, be cured, a patient’s life can be significantly extended by strategies aimed at preventing further damage to nephrons. Misconceptions remain however, regarding early diagnosis and about which management strategies are most effective and why. Additionally, as new biomarkers become available, new studies are performed and new medications are licensed: how can we be sure what the best approach is for our patients?

The key topics will addressed with a variety of resources including webinars, reading materials, case studies and quizzes.

Why do this course?
This course is suitable for anyone working in first opinion practice, but is particularly aimed at those interested in nephrology and urology, who want to diagnose and manage these conditions at a high level.

A live Q&A session with the tutor will run on the following dates at 2.30pm London time including a 15 minute registration and familiarisation period prior to the commencement of the session.
