Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Orthopaedics Volume 36, Issue 23: Surgical Insights.
The goal of this program is to improve evaluation and treatment of proximal humerus fractures, massive rotator cuff tears, the snapping hip, and labral tears. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Review the nonoperative and operative management considerations for proximal humerus fractures.
2. Recognize the roles of fatty infiltration and timing of repair for massive rotator cuff tears.
3. List key steps in the surgical management of massive rotator cuff tears.
4. Identify etiologies and current treatment options for the snapping hip.
5. Describe indications and the technique for labral reconstruction with iliotibial band autograft.
The original programs were presented by Laurence D. Higgins, MD, Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Harvard Medical School; Chief, Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service, Department of Orthopaedics, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA, and Marc J. Philippon, MD, Managing Partner, Sports Medicine and Hip Disorders, The Steadman Clinic; Co-Chair, Steadman Philippon Research Institute, Vail, CO.
