Accreditation Check:

Contemporary surgical approaches to the management of hip fractures have evolved over the years, resulting in improved outcomes and return of independence in the older adult. From the surgeon's perspective, there are variables, both pre op and post op, that can have either positive or negative consequences for this population. Among these variables, surgeons must consider health of the patient, classification of the fracture, fixation device options that best support the type of fracture, appreciation of the health status of the patient after surgery, and the important role of therapy in early mobilization. Upon viewing this course, the participant will have a better understanding of these variables. In addition, the participant will get a front row seat in the operating room, with the opportunity to view a selection of hip fracture surgeries. This is the second course in a five course series.

1. Hip Fracture Surgery and Rehabilitation

The second installment in the hip fracture course series provides participants with an overview of the importance of optimizing the patient medically prior to surgery, as well as controlling post op complications to provide the best outcome. Participants will learn about the appropriate weight bearing status for this type of surgical approach, as well as the variables that may impede bone-healing time.

2. Hip Fracture Classifications and Fixations

This chapter provides the foundation by which the severity of hip fractures can be understood. This segment of the course contrasts the different classifications of hip fractures and poses fixation options for each. With this knowledge, participants will learn the importance of proper fixation device selection and the complications that can result from incorrect device selection. Emphasis is placed on highlighting the significance of surgical management of the hip fracture patient, and how current technology maximizes patient function post op.
