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.

AO Trauma NA Course: New England Regional Fracture Summit

January 15, 2021 to January 18, 2021
Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Conference Center: Stowe, Vermont 05672, United States
The New England Regional Summit is a discussion forum where nationally prominent local trauma experts interact with community-based orthopedic surgeons who are actively involved in the treatment of patients with fractures.

This informal, almost entirely discussion-based Summit is highly interactive with clinical presentations that include:

-Tips, tricks and techniques on how the faculty tackle clinical problems
-Frank confidential discussions about how to manage cases “on the fringe of normal” – a routine case that isn’t going normally
-Complications and frustrations of the experts and how they dealt with them
Each session incorporates an alternating case presentation-discussion format followed by participant case presentations. All participants are strongly encouraged to bring personal cases for discussion to optimize their personal experience and involvement – you will personally get more out of this course as a result.
