AO Trauma Masters Course—Shoulder Trauma

Course description

The course combines evidence-based lectures, small group case discussions, anatomical specimen dissection, and fixation procedures to improve knowledge and skills in the key surgical techniques to treat shoulder trauma. Active engagement by all participants is critical to the effectiveness of the course.

Goal of the course

Participants will learn the current management of patient pain, dysfunction, deformity, and cosmesis related to trauma of the shoulder. We will cover fractures from the sternoclavicular joint to the humeral shaft, as well as joint injuries, dislocations, and soft-tissue injuries. We will also discuss posttraumatic sequelae such as malunion, nonunion, infection.

Target participants

Participants should have completed the AOTrauma Courses—Basic Principles and Advanced Principles of Fracture Management and must be able to communicate well in English.
