Advanced Fracture Repair
September 22 - September 24
Do you ever have difficulty approaching or reducing long bone fractures? Many courses teach the principles of fracture repair using plastic bone exercise only. This course will also use plastic bones to teach methods of fracture stabilization, but hands-on exercises will also be used to show you how to perform the perfect surgical approach, tips on successful fracture reduction and repair simple and challenging comminuted fractures using simple and reliable techniques. In addition, postoperative radiographs will be taken to assess the participant’s repair technique, a powerful and important learning tool. Participants will have the opportunity to repair fractures using traditional plates, locking plates, lag screws, pin and tension band and headless compression screws.
