Practical Approach to Common Fractures
University of Liverpool
Do you use pins and wires for fracture repairs but feel you could improve on your techniques? Correctly applied pins and wire can be very successful in managing certain types of fractures.
This lecture and predominantly practical-based workshop will discuss and apply the use of pins and wires for the management of appropriate fractures. In the practical component of the course, pin and wire application of the following fractures will be taught:
• Cross pinning of distal femoral fractures
• Tibial crest avulsions – pin and tension band wire
• Medial malleolar fractures
• Trochanteric osteotomy
