AO Trauma is delighted to launch a new hands-on course format for practicing orthopedic trauma surgeons. This course is tailored to support the educational needs in specific areas of orthopedic trauma, which are evolving due to a rise of more high velocity trauma with more complex fracture patterns and more demanding fractures.
- The participant should apply the concept of a minimally invasive reduction and plate fixation technique (MIPO) in planning, in his tactic of reduction and fixation as well in his selection of the approaches for complex distal femoral fractures.
- The participant knows the advantages and the anatomical limits of minimally invasive techniques using the medial and lateral approaches to the distal femur and shaft.
- The participant understands the biomechanical concepts and indications based on recent evidence for an intramedullary or medial augmentation of complex distal femoral fractures in a setting of peri- and interprosthetic femoral fractures.
- The participant will develop hands-on skill and gain new insights into advanced reduction and fixation techniques demonstrated by experienced surgeons.
