Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Orthopaedics Volume 36, Issue 07: Issues in the Younger Patient.
The goals of this program are to increase awareness of shoulder injuries in the overhead athlete and forearm fractures, and to improve recognition of septic hip and spinal deformities within the pediatric population. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Summarize the etiology and risk factors of shoulder injuries that affect the overhead athlete.
2. Highlight the presentation, evaluation, and management of the most common throwing injuries sustained in the overhead athlete.
3. Discuss treatment goals and management options for pediatric forearm fractures.
4. Identify the Kocher criteria used in evaluation of the irritable hip.
5. Review the evaluation and management of early-onset scoliosis.
