Goal of the course:
The AOTrauma Course—Pelvic and Acetabular Fracture Management aims to convey to experienced participants an understanding of the initial evaluation, stabilization, and definitive treatment of patients with fractures and dislocations of the pelvic ring, acetabulum, or both. The AO Principles, the latest techniques, and up-to-date evidence will be incorporated into the course, guiding participants in developing the knowledge and skills needed to treat these injuries and improve patient outcomes.
Participants must be fully trained orthopedic and/or trauma surgeons with subspecialty interest in the treatment of pelvic and acetabular fractures. They must have already completed the AOTrauma Courses—Principles in Operative Fracture Management and Advances in Operative Fracture Management.
Surgeons participating in this course will learn how to address the severely injured patient, how to evaluate, diagnose, and classify pelvic ring and acetabular injuries, and determine appropriate timing and indications for interventions. They will be able to apply knowledge and skills in the selection and performance of the surgical approach for specific injuries and definitive reconstruction of complex fractures.
A faculty of world experts will cover key concepts of pelvic and acetabular diagnosis and treatment in four modules. Simulation exercises including dissection of anatomical specimens will expose participants to the essentials of the surgical approach and related anatomy. Artificial bone model practicals will give participants experience in the application of different reduction and fixation techniques. All concepts will be expanded and reinforced in interactive group discussions, emphasizing the diagnosis, evaluation, indications, treatment modalities, decision-making processes, and complications.
• Define key elements in the initial evaluation of pelvic and acetabular fractures
• Classify pelvic and acetabular injuries and recognize the implications for treatment
• Apply emergency treatment and stabilization techniques for pelvic ring injuries and initial management of acetabular fractures
• Demonstrate appropriate decision-making and operative planning strategies
• Identify the important anatomical structures for the specific pelvic and acetabular approaches
• Define indications and apply surgical approaches to the pelvis and acetabulum
• Specify indications and perform techniques of reduction and fixation
• Discuss early and late results and complications of pelvic and acetabular surgery
