Learning objectives
This EFORT Webinar will focus on potential carcinogenicity of metal containing implants in orthopaedic and trauma surgery. The objectives of this Webinar are: 
  • To inform Orthopaedic Surgeons about the classification of cobalt as a carcinogen on EU level and potential consequences for surgeons and manufacturers.
  • To summarize current knowledge on the carcinogenic potential of metal particles released from arthroplasty implants.
