Trauma Basic Principles (Kansas City, MO)

November 21, 2019 to November 24, 2019
The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center 1 E Pershing Road Kansas City, Missouri, 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.
