This live online event will review the basic principles in the management of open tibia fractures specifically in low-income countries. Management of this common injury may be difficult at times: training is essential and improves results.

Participants' questions will be answered by the moderator through an online char tool and by the presenter in the questions and answers section at the conclusion.


Learning Outcomes:

1. Evaluate open tibia fractures

2. Specify the goals and principles of open tibia fracture management

3. Recognize that debridement is key for successful management and outcomes

4. Take the resources available locally and your own level of expertise into consideration

5. Select a flixation technique (if applicable) based on the wound characteristics, fracture pattern and amount of bone loss.

We look forward to your participation in this event.
