CHOP Open-access Medical Education: Orthopaedics Course Presentations

This seminar focuses on orthopaedics and was delivered in Salzburg, Austria on Aug. 28 to Sept. 3, 2016. Topics include pediatric upper and lower extremity fractures, arthritis in children, limb deformities and many more.

Pediatric Upper Extremity Fractures

At  the conclusion of the session, participants should be able to describe the basic principles of pediatric fractures; identify and understand treatments for fractures of the wrist, forearm, proximal humerus and clavicle; identify Monteggia, radial neck, olecranon, supracondylar and lateral condyle fractures; and describe sternoclavicular injuries.

Acute Arthritis in Children

At  the conclusion of the session, participants should be able to understand the cardinal features of acute arthritis in children, develop a differential diagnosis of acute arthritis, and know how to evaluate the history and physical examination to guide a diagnosis and preliminary treatment plan.

Chronic Arthritis in Children

At  the conclusion of the session, participants should be able to describe the cardinal features and the common causes of chronic arthritis, in particular, the different subtypes of juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and understand how to use history and physical examinations to guide a diagnosis and develop a preliminary treatment plan.

Pattern of Deformity

At  the conclusion of the session, participants should be able to understand the patterns, assessment and treatment of limb length discrepancies, angular deformities and complex deformities.

Protecting Bone Health in Pediatric Rheumatic Diseases

At  the conclusion of the session, participants should be able to appreciate the contribution of inflammation, glucocorticoid therapy and altered body composition to altered bone mass and structures in children with rheumatic diseases, understand that long bone and vertebral fracture risk is elevated, and evaluate diagnostic and treatment approaches for children with osteoporosis and those at risk for bone fragility.

Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain
