This webinar, hosted by The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (JBJS), will shed light on two crucial aspects of open-fracture management.
Samir Mehta, MD, coauthor of a JBJS systematic review and meta-analysis, will re-examine the historical “six-hour rule” for time-to-debridement of open long-bone fractures.
Co-author Romney Anderson, MD will discuss results from a JBJS retrospective review that explores the efficacy of different fixation methods for treating open proximal femoral fractures sustained in combat.
Moderated by Ronald W. Lindsey, MD, chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Texas Medical Branch and co-editor of JBJS Case Connector, the webinar will include additional perspectives on open-fracture management from two expert commentators—Michael Bosse, MD and Kenneth Egol, MD. The last 15 minutes will be devoted to a live Q&A session, during which the audience can ask questions of all four panelists.
