    This webinar would highlight the described patient population of geriatric acetabulum fractures along with the fracture patterns that typically result in a poor outcome with open reduction internal fixation. Decision making based on fracture morphology, patient medical comorbidities and potential complications of fixation alone versus fixation with ORIF would be discussed. Surgical procedure with case based descriptions and examples of techniques and intraoperative decision making would then be discussed at length. Perioperative care and postoperative care would then be discussed and expected outcomes.

    Learning Objectives

    After completing this activity, learners will be able to:

    • 1)Understand the geriatric acetabulum fracture patterns that put the outcome at risk with open reduction internal fixation alone
    • 2)Understand what patients can undergo concurrent procedures safely
    • 3)Understand the specialized surgical techniques that need to be employed in these types of procedures.

    This 3-hour 2-part webinar is for the orthopaedic traumatologist who is interested in learning the basic concepts involved in successful post traumatic deformity analysis and correction The first part of the series will discuss basic concepts involved in post-traumatic deformity analysis and planning. Standard techniques in radiographic analysis and preoperative planning will be introduced in the first part of the series with case examples to demonstrate concepts. The second part of the series will focus on techniques for deformity correction including fixator assisted plating, fixator assisted nailing and external fixator correction of deformities. Joint contractures and soft tissue considerations in deformity correction will be presented. Additional topics include Basic principles in treating post traumatic limb length discrepancy and segmental bone defects. Case based examples will be used to demonstrate concepts.

    This 3-hour 2-part webinar is for the orthopaedic traumatologist who is interested in learning the basic concepts involved in successful post traumatic deformity analysis and correction The first part of the series will discuss basic concepts involved in post-traumatic deformity analysis and planning. Standard techniques in radiographic analysis and preoperative planning will be introduced in the first part of the series with case examples to demonstrate concepts. The second part of the series will focus on techniques for deformity correction including fixator assisted plating, fixator assisted nailing and external fixator correction of deformities. Joint contractures and soft tissue considerations in deformity correction will be presented. Additional topics include Basic principles in treating post traumatic limb length discrepancy and segmental bone defects. Case based examples will be used to demonstrate concepts.
