Current Techniques of Fracture Fixation Workshop was organised by CARE Hospitals Hitech City on Monday with the support of Twin Cities Orthopaedic Association (TCOA) and Telangana Orthopaedic Association (TOSA). The Workshop attended by around 250 Orthopaedic Surgeons, the workshop was inaugurated by Dr. Vijay Bhaskar, TOSA President, Dr Kasha. Secretary. Dr Thimma Reddy President Elect. and Senior Orthopaedic Doctors from Telangana State.
The Objective of the workshop was upgrade the knowledge of doctors in the filed of Orthopaedics especially in Fracture Fixation Techniques. The Faculty members of the different medical institutions addressed the workshop with their presentations on the goal of any fracture treatment is rapid and complete restoration of limb function. Stable realignment of bones and restoration of a full range of motion in the joint are necessary for complete limb function.
Dr.Jagan Mohan of Sr Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon CARE Hospitals Hitech City said on this occasion Centuries ago, a fracture meant death for many or a lifetime of pain and disability for those who survived while just decades ago, damage to skeletal tissue would lead to pain, prolonged healing, and often disability. Now, complete fracture healing time is reduced and soft tissue repair is enhanced thanks to advancement in surgical techniques and biomaterials developed for fracture fixation.
Patients often receive a promising prognosis with minimal morbidity. This progress is attributed to significant achievements in both basic and clinical scientific research to assess the macro- and micro-pathophysiology of fractures and soft tissue damage. Repair is accelerated with the application of known endogenous growth factors, innovative biomaterials or implants, and novel surgical techniques in orthopaedics.
Dr.Ratnakar Rao , Sr.Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon CARE Hospitals Hitech City addressed the gathering that Osteosynthesis attempts to achieve this goal by open reduction and internal fixation using implants. For many years’ surgeons were fascinated by impressive pictures of direct bone healing. Too often, this was accomplished at the expense of extensive surgical tissue trauma by forcing precise reduction. Perfect anatomical reduction, however, is not necessary in diaphyseal fractures.
This knowledge, which was available to our surgical forefathers, underwent a renaissance in the 1990s when radiographic monitoring of perfectly reduced diaphyseal fractures revealed an increased frequency of complications, including infection, delayed union and implant failure.
