Advances in Fixation Techniques for Distal Radius Fractures

 Co-Chairs: Mark S. Cohen, MD and Douglas P. Hanel, MD

Published by: American Society for Surgery of the Hand

There are an increasing number of surgical options available for the treatment of unstable fractures of the distal radius. This DVD explores some of the newer fixation systems with respect to indications, principles and surgical strategies. Recorded at the 2004 ASSH Annual Meeting, the DVD features short lectures combined with cadaveric prosections highlighting pearls and pitfalls. Panels and case presentations are used to debate treatment options.                                                                                                  

Objectives:
* Understand the indications for newer fixation systems
* Understand the technical principles for each procedure with potential pitfalls
* Have several additional surgical options added to your armamentarium for the treatment of unstable distal radius fractures
