Learn and practice the latest techniques in complex pelvic and acetabular fractures
Learn and practice the latest techniques in complex pelvic and acetabular fractures Through cadaveric dissection and applications of implants during hands-on lab sessions, gain a better understanding of the relevant anatomy and surgical challenges. Learn the appropriate usage of clamps and fixation devices for each specific fracture type, as well as the best strategies for preventing potential complications such as infection, thromboembolism, posttraumatic hip arthritis, pelvic malunion, and heterotopic ossification. Controversial topics covered in the course include thromboembolism detection and prophylaxis, minimally invasive percutaneous techniques versus standard approaches, the role of arterial emoblization in pelvic trauma, and acetabular fracture care in the elderly.
 
At the conclusion of this course, learners should be able to:
• Evaluate patients with pelvic and acetabular fractures and formulate a surgical plan
• Correlate the radiology and anatomy of the pelvis and acetabulum in formulating a treatment plan
• Determine the indications for operative and nonoperative management
• Analyze the fracture patterns of the pelvis and acetabulum and the surgical approaches appropriate for the formal osteosynthesis of each anatomical structure
• Compare and contrast techniques of direct and indirect reduction; formal and percutaneous fixation; practice techniques in lab
• Treat complications of fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum
