Description

The AO Foundation is a non-profit organisation, based in Switzerland, and dedicated to the advancement of the care of those suffering from musculoskeletal injury and disease.

This three-day course aims to cover all aspects of serious injuries to the foot and ankle from initial presentation, through primary emergency management and definitive reduction and fixation to secondary reconstruction of the delayed consequences of trauma. This course also includes a cadaveric session using fresh frozen specimens. 

The theme of the course is that the treatment of foot and ankle injuries flows from an understanding of the normal and injured anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. For this reason the course emphasises basic science and cadaveric dissections. 

The course includes the following modules: 

• Normal foot and ankle function
• Talus
• Calcaneum
• Midfoot
• Lisfranc
• Forefoot
• Ankle
• Tibial Pilon
• Foot fractures in diabetic patients
• Complications
• Reconstruction
• Cadaveric surgery

Included in the modules are fracture anatomy and classification, surgical approaches, plate fixation, outcomes of treatment and complications.

Participant Criteria
The course is aimed at consultants, senior trainees and fellows with an interest in the management and late reconstruction of foot and ankle trauma. Preference will be given to applicants who have undertaken an AO Advanced Course.
