    Welcome to the virtual international resident course organized by the Orthopaedic Trauma Association (OTA) and with the participation of Africa and European Countries. The course is going to be held virtually on August 15 and 16th of 2024.

    The virtual international resident course is divided into six small discussion groups of approximately 15 resident and two expert faculty surgeons per module.

    The topics of the modules include diaphyseal, articular, Foot and ankle, Infection and Complications, geriatrics and pelvis and acetabulum. On each discussion group challenging cases will be presented and participants will have the opportunity to actively discussed the basic principles of fracture management with the guidance of an expert international faculty.

    Evidence-based lectures covering key information and including selected videos and power point presentations from international faculty are going to be released previous to the course in order to prepare the participants for the case discussions.  These lecture can be accessed during a period of four weeks previous to the course and are an essential part of the pre course study guide.

    Objectives:

    • Assess the basic principles of fracture fixation with the goal to differentiate absolute and relative stability base on different implants and techniques.
    • Design a treatment plan based on physical exam, imaging and application of basic concepts of fracture fixation.
    • Identify different techniques for reduction and fracture management through an atraumatic surgical technique.
    • Plan initial treatment and management of the polytrauma patient.
    • Examine how different implants provide different types of stability and its influence on bone healing.
    • Apply reduction techniques with special attention to soft tissues.

    Complex per trochanteric femoral fractures (CPTFF) are common and complicated with osteoporosis, short segment fixation, muscle pull, and bone comminution/loss. We describe predictable and successful plating and nailing tips and trips with cases. Furthermore, we describe techniques for successful revision of complications especially nail cut out, poor start site, and varus/apex anterior deformity with or without leg length inequality.

    This case-base discussion will provide five cases in geriatric patients with fracture which may best be treated by arthroplasty: 1. Acute acetabular fracture addressed with immediate total hip arthroplasty 2. Acute femoral neck fracture treated with total hip arthroplasty 3. Complex, multi-fragmentary proximal femur fracture treated with revision total hip arthroplasty 4. Acute, complex distal supracondylar/intercondylar distal femur fracture treated with immediate distal femoral replacement total knee arthroplasty 5. Acute, split-depression tibial plateau fracture treated with total knee arthroplasty with metaphyseal augments

    Learning Objectives:

    After completing this activity, learners will be able to:

    1. To have the orthopedic trauma surgeon be aware of and consider arthroplasty options to geriatric lower extremity fractures.
    2. To delineate tips and tricks for using arthroplasty in the acute management of geriatric lower extremity fractures.
    3. To help the orthopedic trauma surgeon decide between fixation and arthroplasty in certain geriatric lower extremity fractures.

    Statement of Need/Description/or Summary of Gap Analysis

    There needs to be continued discussion bridging the gap between arthroplasty experts and orthopedic trauma surgeons. Often, because of call schedules, the orthopedic trauma surgeon is responsible of the acute geriatric fracture that may benefit from arthroplasty.
