Comprehensive, critical insights and techniques for the management of technically demanding orthopaedic trauma from top experts.
Taking call is part of every physician’s career. Many orthopaedic surgeons will cover call regardless of their subspecialty training. This course is designed to help general orthopaedic surgeons and non-trauma–trained surgeons get through call. The course also is designed to provide more in-depth knowledge on these concepts for those seeking a deeper understanding that is not just surviving the night.
At the conclusion of this course, learners should be able to:
Recognize and explain how to manage limb-threatening conditions, such as the pulseless extremity, compartment syndrome, and the mangled extremity, while taking orthopaedic trauma call.
• Explain how to approach patients with a gunshot wound, open fracture, or bone loss, and review the management of venous thromboembolism in orthopaedic trauma.
• Describe current strategies for the management of long bone fractures.
• Discuss indications and technical pearls for the acute management of pelvic and acetabular fractures.
• Review the acute management of fracture/dislocation patterns, ranging from those in the shoulder to those in the ankle.
• Explain how to approach all types of hip fractures, from those that occur in young patients to those that occur in elderly patients.
