Description: This combined webinar between the Orthopedic Trauma Association and the American Association of Hand Surgery will critically evaluate the management of upper extremity trauma. To do this we will not only explore the data on open fracture management prevention but also consider how to manage infected nonunions when they do occur. We will also discuss how a polytrauma patient may affect your strategy for upper extremity fixation.
1. Understand how upper extremity care fits into the overall picture of a polytrauma patient
2. Explore the data for acute open fracture management
3. Discuss the strategies for treating an infected nonunion after an open fracture
