This JBJS webinar will present findings from two recent JBJS studies that explore how best to prevent deep infections in lower-grade open fractures, and the most effective antibiotics for treating community-acquired hand infections.
• Richard Jenkinson, MD will discuss findings from a propensity score-matched cohort study that compared deep infection rates in patients with grade-I, II, or IIA open fractures who were treated with either immediate wound closure or delayed wound closure.
• Rick Tosti, MD will examine resistance patterns of specific antibiotics to MRSA infections of the hand in an urban population.
Moderated by musculoskeletal-infection expert Jonathan Schoenecker, MD, PhD, the webinar will also feature commentaries on the studies by Lawrence Marsh, MD and Isaac P. Thomsen, MD.
