AO Trauma Hand NA Online Live Series—Complications in Upper Limb Surgery
Adverse events can happen during surgery of the hand and upper limb. Some of these are avoidable, while others may result from unforeseen events, suboptimal execution of procedures or suboptimal rehabilitation.
Whether it is a pre-operative, intra-operative or post-operative procedure, surgeons need to know how to deal with these complications not only from a clinical perspective but also from a legal, ethical and psychological perspective.
A holistic approach, with assistance from other disciplines, colleagues and hand therapists is critical in making sure that the best possible outcome can be achieved, despite the complication.
This series will be conducted weekly on Thursdays starting on May 5, 2022 and will run through June 16, 2022.
Upon completion of this series, participants will be able to Identify common complications after upper limb surgery involving fracture, tendon, and nerve repair or reconstruction Evaluate each complication clinically Understand and evaluate investigative modalities for each complication Develop an algorithmic approach to treating each complication
