Brazil is preparing to introduce minimally-invasive total hip replacement (THR) surgery across the national health system (SUS). The national trauma and orthopaedics institute (INTO) held a two-day event (Rio de Janeiro, June 14-15) to update almost 200 specialists in the latest developments, as part of a retraining programme. Experts were drafted in from North and South America and from Europe (Italy and the UK) to present and debate technologies, approaches and best practice.
