Long bone fractures occur commonly and repairing them may seem daunting. Join a board-certified orthopedic surgeon to learn simple, practical techniques designed for general practitioners in fixing basic long bone fractures. After discussing basic fracture fixation principles, you’ll use bone models to correct oblique fracture with intramedullary pin and cerclage fixation, as well as correct a transverse fracture by using bone plating. You will also discuss locking vs. non-locking plates and explore lag screw fixation techniques.
Participants may find it helpful to review pertinent anatomy and orthopedic instrumentation before attending this course.
