AO Trauma Course - Basic Principles of Fracture Management is organized by AO Foundation and would be held during Sep 14 - 17, 2017 at Phoenix, Arizona, United states of America.
This Course is designed to provide the participant with a fundamental knowledge of operative treatment of fractures according to the AO principles.The course will cover the concepts of absolute and relative stability, as applied in context, of the soft tissue injury for each limb segment’s major fracture types. This course is the foundation for the AONA curriculum, which teaches the surgeon how to manage trauma and trauma reconstruction. The goal of this course is not to advocate the treatment of all fractures by surgical fixation, but rather to help ensure that when surgery is carried out, that it is done properly based upon principles, appropriate preoperative planning, and decision making.
Conference Objectives :
• Discuss the concepts of stability, their influence on bone healing, and how to apply implants to achieve appropriate stability
• Plan a treatment based on assessment, imaging, classification and decision making
• Apply reduction techniques in fracture management with attention to the importance of the soft tissue
• Plan the initial treatment of a polytraumatized patient
• Apply related psychomotor skills to the practical application of orthopaedic implants to fractured bones
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
