AOTrauma Course - Managing Pediatric Musculoskeletal Injuries is organized by AOTrauma and will be held from Apr 03 - 05, 2019 at Conference Park 25/7, Rijeka, Primorje-Gorski Kotar, Croatia. The Goal of the course The AOTrauma Course—Pediatric Fracture Management aims to create a clinically centered learning environment where the current principles and techniques of fracture management in children and adolescents are demonstrated, applied, and discussed. In this course, modern concepts in pediatric fracture care are covered at an advanced level. During the practical exercises, participants will practice the methods presented and discussed in this course. Target participants This course is for traumatologists, orthopedic surgeons, and other surgeons who are actively engaged in pediatric fracture care and who want to enhance their level of expertise in this field. Ideally, participants have already completed the AOTrauma Course—Principles in Operative Fracture Management. Course objectives At the end of this course, participants should be able to: • Recognize how bone characteristics and fracture classification are different in children and adolescents compared with adults, and describe how this affects bone healing and fracture management. • Evaluate a range of nonoperative and surgical options for the treatment of common pediatric fractures. • Manage pediatric fractures according to biological and mechanical principles, and apply appropriate techniques and technologies. • Apply treatment strategies for pediatric fractures based on available evidence, and discuss areas of controversy. • Develop strategies for the prevention and management of complications associated with pediatric fractures. • Manage pediatric orthopedic syndromes according to modern concepts, and apply appropriate treatments methods. Course description To be a child means to move, play, and take part in sports. Children do not like being confined to bed having their arm or leg in a cumbersome plaster cast restricting their ability to play and move around. Since growth in childhood can be influenced by fractures, it is important to learn about proper and necessary orthopedic treatment in young patients. Through a series of lectures, practical exercises, and discussion groups, key topics are explored in this course and current operative and plaster cast techniques are demonstrated and practiced.

AOTrauma Masters Course - Upper Extremity is organized by AOTrauma and will be held from Apr 04 - 06, 2019 at Faculty of Medicine, Rijeka, Primorje-Gorski Kotar, Croatia. Learning objectives: • Explain the latest developments in the treatment of clavicular, scapular, proximal humeral, humeral shaft, distal humeral, and elbow injuries • Select and perform fracture-specific approaches in the areas described above • Analyze complicated clinical cases of these fractures and choose the optimal treatment strategy • Integrate practical tips and tricks for fracture reduction and fixation techniques • Identify the causes of failure and describe how to develop an appropriate salvage strategy The goal of the course The goal of this course is to increase knowledge and skills for managing difficult and complex cases. State-of-theart techniques and approaches, best practices for treatment, and the management of complications will all be addressed at a high level. Target participants Participants must be fully trained orthopedic and/or trauma surgeons with subspecialty interest in the treatment of pelvic and acetabular fractures. They must have already completed the AOTrauma Courses - Principles in Operative Fracture Management and Advances in Operative Fracture Management Course description Current Concepts courses and modules address the latest techniques and best practices in operative fracture management to deal with complex orthopedic trauma problems. The course includes many case presentations and open group discussions moderated by experts in the field. Best evidence is presented through summary lectures and practical exercises. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

AOTrauma Course - Acetabular and Pelvic Fracture Management is organized by AOTrauma and will be held from Apr 04 - 06, 2019 at Faculty of Medicine, Rijeka, Primorje-Gorski Kotar, Croatia. Venue: Course venue for anatomical lab Medicinski fakultet Sveučilišta u Rijec Brace Branchetta 20/1 51000 Rijeka, Croatia Course venue for lectures and discussion groups Conference Park 25/7 (across Amadria Park Grand Hotel 4 opatijska cvijeta – Villa Camellia) Viktora Cara Emina 6 HR-51410 Opatija, Croatia Goal of the course: The AOTrauma Course—Pelvic and Acetabular Fracture Management aims to convey to experienced participants an understanding of the initial evaluation, stabilization, and definitive treatment of patients with fractures and dislocations of the pelvic ring, acetabulum, or both. The AO Principles, the latest techniques, and up-to-date evidence will be incorporated into the course, guiding participants in developing the knowledge and skills needed to treat these injuries and improve patient outcomes. Target participants: Participants must be fully trained orthopedic and/or trauma surgeons with subspecialty interest in the treatment of pelvic and acetabular fractures. They must have already completed the AOTrauma Courses—Principles in Operative Fracture Management and Advances in Operative Fracture Management. Course description: Surgeons participating in this course will learn how to address the severely injured patient, how to evaluate, diagnose, and classify pelvic ring and acetabular injuries, and determine appropriate timing and indications for interventions. They will be able to apply knowledge and skills in the selection and performance of the surgical approach for specific injuries and definitive reconstruction of complex fractures. A faculty of world experts will cover key concepts of pelvic and acetabular diagnosis and treatment in four modules. Simulation exercises including dissection of anatomical specimens will expose participants to the essentials of the surgical approach and related anatomy. Artificial bone model practicals will give participants experience in the application of different reduction and fixation techniques. All concepts will be expanded and reinforced in interactive group discussions, emphasizing the diagnosis, evaluation, indications, treatment modalities, decision-making processes, and complications. Learning objectives: • Define key elements in the initial evaluation of pelvic and acetabular fractures • Classify pelvic and acetabular injuries and recognize the implications for treatment • Apply emergency treatment and stabilization techniques for pelvic ring injuries and initial management of acetabular fractures • Demonstrate appropriate decision-making and operative planning strategies • Identify the important anatomical structures for the specific pelvic and acetabular approaches • Define indications and apply surgical approaches to the pelvis and acetabulum • Specify indications and perform techniques of reduction and fixation • Discuss early and late results and complications of pelvic and acetabular surgery
