Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Orthopaedics Volume 36, Issue 11: Upper Arm/Osteochondritis Dissecans.
The goal of this program is to improve the treatment of proximal humerus fractures and elbow, knee, and ankle injuries that affect young athletes. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Visualize the vascular supply to the humeral head and predict the risk for avascular necrosis in proximal humerus fractures.
2. Cite critical factors that affect the surgical outcome of proximal humerus fractures.
3. List the differential diagnosis for elbow injuries based on location of pain.
4. Educate patients on factors that affect the development of elbow overuse injuries.
5. Diagnose and treat osteochondritis dissecans injuries of the knee and ankle in young athletes.
The original programs were presented by Dean G. Lorich, MD, Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Weill College of Medicine, Cornell University; Associate Director, Orthopaedic Trauma Service, Hospital for Special Surgery, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY, and Alfred W. Atanda Jr, MD, Surgical Director, Center for Sports Medicine, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, Wilmington, DE.
