Various groups within ESSKA conduct surveys to analyse the needs and priorities of our members as well as their surgical habits.

The ESSKA Orthobiologics Initiative (ORBIT) - Orthobiologics Survey

ESSKA has recently launched the “Orthobiologics Initiative” (ORBIT) to support a better knowledge of the full benefit of these therapies and to establish a structured path to improve their use.

Summary of Survey.

ESSKA-ESMA survey on Surgeon practice patterns regarding anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and rehabilitation

Over the past few decades, there have been significant modifications in both surgical technique and in the methods of rehabilitation used for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. This trend can be aided by a number of factors including geography, level of experience, refinement of surgical technique, instrumentation and implant devices, and better understanding of ACL anatomy. ESSKA-ESMA conducted an online survey to ESSKA members, investigating their attitudes regarding graft type, surgical method and post-operative care in ACL reconstruction.

Prophylaxis for Venous Thromboembolism and Heterotopic Ossification after Hip Arthroscopy Surveys

The ESSKA Hip Arthroscopy Committee has conducted two surveys amongst ESSKA members on Prophylaxis for venous thromboembolism after Hip Arthroscopy and for Heterotopic Ossification (HO) after Hip Arthroscopy. The surveys outcomes confirm that a consensus statement on this topic is important and that a common direction in the prophylaxis of our HA patients will be beneficial. The committee aims to achieve this goal during the next 18th ESSKA Congress in Glasgow.

Summaries of the surveys are available below:

Survey on Prophylaxis for venous thromboembolism (VTE) in Hip Arthroscopy
