Goal of the course

The AOTrauma Course—Basic Principles of Fracture Management teaches fundamental principles and current concepts in the treatment of injuries, incorporating the latest techniques in operative fracture management. The AOTrauma Basic Principles course is the initial step along the path of lifelong learning in the area of operative fracture management. This course mainly focuses on the basic principles of fracture management.

Target participants

The AOTrauma Course—Basic Principles of Fracture Management is targeted at physicians in surgical training but is also open to anyone else who is interested in furthering their knowledge and skills in operative fracture management.

Learning objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the concepts of stability, their influence on bone healing, and how to apply implants to achieve appropriate stability
  • Plan a treatment based on assessment, imaging, classification, and decision making
  • Apply reduction techniques in fracture management with attention to the importance of the soft tissues
  • Treat diaphyseal and simple (peri)articular fractures using different application techniques
  • Evaluate and recognize the special problems related to fractures in the immature skeleton, pelvic injuries, osteoporotic fractures, postoperative infection, delayed union and/or nonunion
  • Plan the initial treatment of the polytraumatized patient

Course description

Online precourse self-assessment prepares participants for the course and allows the faculty to tailor the course to the needs of the participants. Before attending the course, participants are expected to complete online modules on bone healing and classification.

The course contains several evidence-based lectures, which cover the key information required. The AO Skills Lab engages participants in hands-on learning of basic principles and practical know-how needed for live surgery. With experiences such as proper tightening of a screw and feeling the difference between drilling with sharp and blunt drill bits, participants gain important surgical skills and learn about basic biomechanical concepts in a safe, instructive environment. In practical exercises participants will be trained in the application of fixation techniques. Discussing cases in small groups helps participants to understand decision-making and management skills.

After the course, an online postcourse self-assessment provides participants an opportunity to review the important topics from the course.
