Hand fracture fixation

The AO Hand Fixation course in Leeds was excellent. There was a good balance between, lectures, group discussion and practical sessions. The later was the main focus and most enjoyable.

It was interesting to hear from other trainees that for some overseas hand fellowships the AO course was the only hand course that was recognised.

I choose the AO course because of a recommendation and the timing but there are others:

Leicester Hand Fracture Management Course 12th/13th November 2012. Contact Mrs Elaine James ej9@le.ac.uk. There are a few places left.

The Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby runs courses - the next will be in 2013.

There are a couple of Apps that are good for managing fractures:

AO Surgery Reference for managing hand fractures (and fractures of any bone in the body)

DePuySynthes for details of their kit and how to use it.
