Minimize your complications and maximize the results for your patients when you attend this comprehensive problem-based seminar, which will focus on complications associated with foot and ankle surgery.

Lectures are case-based presentations of complications that happen to all of us and will offer an engaging and unique learning experience as faculty and audience discuss cases.

Learning Objectives:
• Apply principles of adequate repair to minimize complications associated with ankle sprain/instability/arthroscopy.
• Evaluate and diagnose peroneal retinaculum insufficiency as a potential cause of continued pain after primary peroneal repair.
• Develop a work-up plan to identify the cause of pain following ankle arthroscopy.
• Design a comprehensive management plan for Achilles tendinopathy/tear, taking into account the limitations of over-lengthening and the potential for Topaz/PRP failure.
• Analyze the causes and develop appropriate management strategies for pes plano valgus complications, including Evans nonunion, over or under-corrected MDCO, and ankle valgus.
• Evaluate and manage hammertoe/lesser MTP complications, such as floating toe, painful/failed implant, and venous congestion/ischemia.
• Formulate a management plan for bunion complications, including AVN, hallux varus, mal-positioned first ray, and non-union.
• Design a comprehensive management plan for hallux rigidus complications, including failed cheilectomy, failed implants, and failed fusion.
• Develop perioperative surgical management strategies to minimize complications in diabetic foot surgery, such as laboratory testing and ancillary/preventative procedures.
• Identify and manage complications associated with infected hardware and post-operative infection.
• Evaluate and manage complications associated with incorrect amputation.
• Critically evaluate case presentations and apply principles of problem-solving to develop appropriate management strategies for each case.
