Femur, distal–Intraarticular fracture (33-C2)—Fixation with the VA-LCP Curved Condylar Plate System 4.5/5.0

In this presentation an intraarticular fracture of the femur, a 33-C2 fracture will be treated with the Variable Angle LCP Curved Condylar Plate System 4.5/5.0 The Objectives - Identify the clinical indications - Introduce the principles of the Variable Angle LCP Curved Condylar Plate System 4.5/5.0 - Patient position and approach - Perform the reduction and fixation of the fracture

Midfoot–Lisfranc injury (TMT fracture or dislocation)–ORIF using self-tapping 4.0 mm Cortex Screws and a 1st TMT Fusion Plate 2.4/2.7, VA Locking

In this presentation, the treatment of a Lisfranc injury will be demonstrated using open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with 4.0 mm self-tapping Cortex Screws and a 1st TMT Fusion Plate 2.4/2.7, VA Locking.

Medial column–Charcot foot–Intertarsal corrective osteotomy and fusion with a VA LCP Medial Column Fusion Plate 3.5

In this presentation, an intertarsal corrective osteotomy will be made to correct a Charcot deformity of the medial column. The fusion will be secured with a VA LCP Medial Column Fusion Plate 3.5. It should be understood that the goal of the procedure is to provide functional reconstruction of the medial column, rather than restoring the normal anatomy. If necessary, any bony prominences that could lead to ulceration are removed.

Tibia, Shaft-Fractures—Closed reduction and reamed intramedullary nailing using the Expert Tibial Nail (ETN)

This presentation will demonstrate the technique for stabilizing a tibia shaft fracture using closed reduction and reamed intramedullary nailing with the Expert Tibial Nail (ETN). Lerning Objectives: - State the clinical indications and contraindications - Describe the correct patient positioning - Identify the appropriate reduction techniques - Recognize the surgical approach and entry point - Perform reamed intramedullary nailing using the ETN

AO Video

Great toe–Hallux valgus deformity–Realignment using scarf osteotomy and fixation with screws, Akin osteotomy

The scarf osteotomy is a diaphyseal osteotomy of the first metatarsal. In this presentation, it will be used to realign the first metatarsal in order to correct a hallux valgus deformity. Following the realignment, the osteotomy will be fixed with self-tapping cortex screws. To correct any residual deformity of the proximal phalanx, the Akin osteotomy will also be shown.

AO Video

First metatarsal and medial cuneiform–Hallux valgus Lapidus procedure Corrective osteotomy and fusion of the tarsometatarsal (TMT) joint with screws and a plate

In this presentation, the Lapidus procedure - a corrective osteotomy and fusion of the tarsometatarsal joint - will be performed to correct a hallux valgus deformity. The fusion will be secured with screws and a plate.

AO Video

Tibial shaft fracture stabilized with different external fixator frame constructs Assessment of stability

In this presentation, a fracture of the tibial shaft is stabilized with different external fixator frame constructs to allow assessment of stability The Learning Objectives - Clinical indications for the application of the large external fixator - Correct position and insertion of the Schanz screws - Construction of different frame types - Choice of frame type according to the stability required

AO Video

Pelvis–Sacroiliac joint and pubic symphysis disruption—Reduction and fixation methods

This exercise explains and demonstrates the anatomy and the biomechanical forces of the pelvis relating to SI joint dislocations, describes the steps to attain anatomical reduction, and defines fixation strategies based on the fracture configuration and associated injuries.
