    This OTA International Journal CME activity consists of a journal article, a self-assessment exam, and an evaluation. The findings of this study suggest that 2.7 mm plate fixation of ulna fractures may lead to a lower rate of refracture compared to fixation with a 3.5 mm plate.

    This OTA International Journal CME activity consists of a journal article, a self-assessment exam, and an evaluation. Previous research has shown restrictive fluid management (RFM) to be associated with reduced mortality for trauma patients who arrive hemodynamically unstable, or those with penetrating trauma. However, there is a lack of research evaluating the efficacy of RFM among geriatric patients who suffered hip fractures, and typically do not meet the definition of hemodynamically unstable. After completing this CME course, you should be able to describe the risks evaluated and potential benefits of restrictive fluid management identified in this retrospective propensity matched study in a population of geriatric trauma patients who suffered hip fractures.

    This OTA International Journal CME activity consists of a journal article, a self-assessment exam, and an evaluation. While it is known that sexual dysfunction is a common adverse outcome associated with pelvic ring injuries, less well known is its association with acetabular fractures. This study indicates the need to ask questions regarding sexual function in follow up of acetabular fractures and to make appropriate referrals when needed.

    This OTA International Journal CME activity consists of a journal article, a self-assessment exam, and an evaluation. Our current evidence has shown that anteroinferior plating significantly and independently decreases implant removal rates after plate fixation for midshaft clavicle fractures compared with that of superior plating. In order to perform the anteroinferior plate fixation safely, it is necessary to understand the anatomy around the clavicle, preoperative complications and indications of the surgery.

    This OTA International Journal CME activity consists of a journal article, a self-assessment exam, and an evaluation. Previous studies have established race-based differences in surgical management of hip fractures and pathologic fractures of the lower extremity.1-5 Despite the high volume of fractures that occur distal to the knee, studies assessing racial disparities in their management are lacking. It is essential for providers to have awareness of the presentation of racial disparities for common orthopaedic pathologies in order to plan interventions to lessen them.

    This OTA International Journal CME activity consists of a journal article, a self-assessment exam, and an evaluation. Practice gap lies in the outcome differences between indirect and direct fixation of posterior malleolar fractures in the setting of trimalleolar ankle fractures. Historically, indirect reductions were preferred due to potential wound complications associated with direct approach and fixation. However, with modern techniques, these complications have significantly decreased. Understanding the nuances and differences between each fixation strategy can be applied to each individual patient/fracture pattern to maximize outcomes.

    This OTAI International Journal CME activity consists of a journal article, a self-assessment exam, and an evaluation. The purpose of this study was to examine the differences in functional outcomes between direct and indirect surgical fixation methods of the posterior malleolus in the setting of trimalleolar fractures and identify any variables affecting patient outcomes.

    This OTAI International Journal CME activity consists of a journal article, a self-assessment exam, and an evaluation. Evidence has shown that local antibiotics given in addition to systemic antibiotics lead to lower fracture-related infection (FRI) rates. Still, FRIs remain a significant cause of disability among military and civilian personnel who have sustained an open fracture. The goal of this multicenter RCT is to further support the use of local antibiotics, specifically tobramycin, in the treatment of open extremity fractures, potentially propagating its use in the standard of care in the addition to systemic antibiotics.
