Course structure

This online course is delivered on 3 consecutive days from 12:00 to 16:00 CET (different modules each day consisting of presentations, small group discussions, and other activities). Participants will join online from home for 4 hours each day, and adequate break times will be integrated.


Course goal

The goal of this course is to increase knowledge and skills for managing difficult and complex cases. State-of-the-art techniques and approaches, best practices for treatment, and the management of complications will all be addressed at a high level.

 

Target participants

Participants must have completed the AO Trauma basic principles and advanced principles courses. They must be actively involved in orthopedic trauma management and preferably have at least five years of post-residency experience in trauma surgery. Participants must be willing to share their ideas and be able to communicate well in English.

Learning objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

Proximal femur

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

• Manage complex fractures of the proximal femur based on patient age, fracture location and type, and identify and avoid common complications. 

• Apply current evidence to the management of proximal femoral fractures using the latest principles and techniques of internal fixation.

• Understand and perform surgical approach options for treatment of femoral neck and proximal femur fractures.

Pilon

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

• Identify soft-tissue injuries associated with the pilon and determine correct surgical timing.
