Return to Play: How to Safely Get Our Patients Back on The Field?

Webinar
Return to Play: How to Safely Get Our Patients Back on The Field?
Tuesday, August 13, 2019 6:00:00 PM MDT - 7:00:00 PM MDT
With increasing youth sports participation, there has been an increase in injuries and re-injuries. Clinicians are often faced with pressing parents, coaches and athletes about how quickly they can return to the injured athlete to their sport. This webinar hosted by members of the POSNA QSVI Sports Committee will address general considerations for returning an athlete to play, return to sport testing, and evidence based update on returning an athlete to play after specific injuries (such as ankle sprains/fractures and ACL reconstruction). Significant variation exists within clinicians in time and clinical criteria for returning athletes to play after injuries or surgeries. Most clinicians use basic science knowledge (ie fracture healing), personal anecdotal evidence, and level 5 evidence in their decision making. This webinar would focus on current research on returning athletes to play and how we can improve, even standardize, our return to play criteria while hopefully reducing re-injuries.

Hilton Anatole 2201 Stemmons Freeway Dallas, Texas, USA
This Basic Principles of Fracture Management course is designed to provide the participant with a fundamental knowledge of the operative treatment of fractures according to the AO principles.

The four guiding AO principles of fracture fixation are:

1. Anatomic reduction of the fracture fragments, particularly in joint fractures;

2. Stable fixation to ensure proper healing of the fracture while allowing surrounding tissue to move and strengthen;

3. Atraumatic surgical techniques to preserve the blood supply to the bone fragments and soft tissue;

4. Early, pain-free mobilization returning the patient to function as quickly as possible.

This course will also cover the concepts of absolute and relative stability of soft tissue injury as applied, in context, for each limb segment’s major fracture types.

This course is the foundation for the AO North America 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.

Please join us for the 8th Annual Direct Anterior Approach Hip Course, October 17 - 19, 2019, in Houston, Texas, at the JW Marriott Houston.

The 8th Annual Direct Anterior Approach Hip Course will offer a thorough education on the surgical and patient processes associated with the anterior hip approach, from patient selection through patient recovery and follow-up.

This course is intended for surgeons already using this procedure and are interested in honing their skills. It will be taught by some of the most well-regarded orthopaedic surgeons practicing today. With didactic presentations, video vignettes, and case-based panel discussions, this exciting program will also feature live surgeries and 3+ hours of hands-on cadaver workshops to enhance the educational environment.
