Course description
Building on the knowledge and skills gained through the AO Basic Principles in Fracture Management course, this AO VET Masters Course in Complex Fracture Management explores the treatment of complex articular fractures and comminuted fractures treated by minimally invasive plate ostheosynthesis.

Learning objectives
At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
• Decision making in challenging articular fracture treatment and minimally invasive fracture fixation techniques
• Be able to perform diaphyseal and articular fracture fixation on plastic bone models
• Evaluate post-op rads of the wet-lab, recognize potential pitfalls and technical mistakes

Prerequisites
AO Basic Principles of Fracture Management course, as some knowledge of instrumentation and techniques is required.

Laboratory
In the labs plastic bone models (dry lab) and cadaveric specimens (wet lab) will be used. At the end of each day session an interactive discussion will take place based on the post-operative radiographs.
