The 1st Poster Award at the 10th Endoprothetikkongress in Berlin 2017 has been given to Janosch Schoon for his work "Multiple Metallexposition bei Versagen von TMT-Komponenten". Janosch assessed the metal exposure in different periprosthetic compartments in a severe case of tantalum component failure. He found that the release of tantalum particles is accompanied by release of other utilized metals.

The 500 Euro endowed prize was awarded on 18th February 2017.

The 2nd price went to the poster of PD Dr. Tilman Pfitzner and the 3rd prize to the poster of Dr. Philippe Moewis.


We congratulate all three winners!
