Advanced Wrist Summit 2021

Discuss complicated wrist fracture cases and investigate treatment techniques, Thursdays January 14 to April 8

Fractures of the wrist account for nearly one sixth of fractures treated in emergency departments. However, no two fractures are treated the same way—each fracture has specific characteristics and requires customized approaches. The Advanced Wrist Summit allows participants to review and discuss clinical cases so they may discover new tactics and techniques on how to tackle clinical complications and challenges related to fractures and diseases of the wrist.

Who should attend: community-based orthopedic, plastic, and general surgeons actively involved in the treatment of patients with wrist fractures and post-traumatic reconstruction.

This AO Trauma Hand NA Online series is being held through Zoom™.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to
Identify anatomical structures associated with or affected by wrist injuries and conditions and the importance of physical examination
Describe the role of patient characteristics and demographics in developing treatment plans
List pitfalls associated with treatment specific fractures and injury patterns
Recognize the significance of identifying complications in patients based on what they present with and previous history
Appreciate the impact of complications that arise on patient outcomes and health status
