AO Trauma NA Course: Basic Principles of Fracture Management

January 14, 2021 to January 17, 2021
Sheraton Charlotte Hotel: Charlotte, North Carolina 28204, United States
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:

-Anatomic reduction of the fracture fragments, particularly in joint fractures;
-Stable fixation to ensure proper healing of the fracture while allowing surrounding tissue to move and strengthen;
-Atraumatic surgical techniques to preserve the blood supply to the bone fragments and soft tissue;
-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.

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Training for Hemophilia and Other Arthritic Conditions

August 4, 2021 to August 5, 2021
UC San Diego Health Hemophilia and Thrombosis Treatment Center: San Diego, California 92121, United States
This 2-day hands-on course was developed to provide training in musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) for evaluation of hemophilic joint disease, but also other arthritic conditions and musculoskeletal abnormalities and syndromes. The main objective of the course is to enable physicians and other health care providers to use MSKUS as a point-of-care imaging tool for diagnosis and treatment of joint pain. In addition, the course has specific elements geared towards hemophilic joint disease: recognition of joint bleeding, synovial hypertrophy and synovitis, cartilage degradation, osteochondral lesions and other structural joint abnormalities. The course also includes a teaching module pertaining to the Joint Tissue Activity and Damage Exam (JADE), a validated ultrasound imaging protocol for hemophilic joints.

Participants are encouraged to complete web modules 1, 2, 4, and 5 cme.ucsd.edu/httc/musksweb.html prior to attending the activity (a total of 2 hours of web-based instructions).

Format: Interactive lectures, case studies, round table discussions, and hands-on scanning.

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound of the Shoulder, Hip and Spine Training Course will provide hands-on training in musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) of the hip, sacroiliac joint and shoulder. The objective of the course is to enable participants to use MSKUS as a point-of care imaging tool to assist with the diagnosis of painful joint. Leading MSK ultrasound experts will cover ultrasound scanning techniques, sonoanatomy, and sonopathology, including MSKUS examination of hemophilic these groups of joints. Diagnosis of iliopsoas bleeds and trochanteric pain will be highlighted.

Format: Interactive lectures, case presentations, round table discussions, and hands-on scanning.
