Overview


This practical, one day course introduces the principles of intramedullary nail fixation for fractures of the tibial and femoral shaft. The course will be taught by experienced orthopaedic surgeons with an interest in orthopaedic trauma.

The emphasis of the course will be on supervised practical sessions allowing participants to get hands-on experience performing intramedullary nail fixation using saw-bone models.

The day will also include short, interactive lectures on the principles of lower limb intramedullary nailing, complications and case based discussions.
