Fractures of the upper extremity are among the most common fractures and are regularly treated by orthopaedic surgeons as well as subspecialists, such as hand surgeons and orthopaedic traumatologists. Complex fractures are particularly challenging and incorporate fractures that consist of concomitant injuries, including open fractures, nerve or vascular injuries, and associated compartment syndrome.
In this 90 minute webinar, a diverse panel of leading faculty members from both the AAHS and OTA highlight the latest evidence and treatment strategies, followed by case discussions.
1. Understand appropriate empiric antibiotic selection and timing for surgical debridement of open upper extremity fractures.
2. Understand how to diagnose and treat an acute carpal tunnel syndrome attack in the setting of a distal radius fracture.
3. Understand how to diagnose and treat a forearm compartment syndrome.
4. Understand how to evaluate and determine when and how to treat a radial nerve palsy after a humerus fracture.
