Fractures Around the Child’s Ankle Joint

Main Presenter: 
Theddy Slongo, MD (Switzerland)
Chat Moderator:
Jonathan Dwyer, MD (United Kingdom)


Mechanisms of fracture-producing injuries around the ankle may be similar in adults and children. However, fracture morphology in children is often completely different. This—together with an appreciation of the greater healing potential and the role of the physes—means that the treatment of these injuries in children is also different to that of adults. As surgeons who are used to adult patients often have to treat children, we see treatments that are neither optimal nor adequate, such as plating of the fibula. In particular, two fractures are very age-specific, and therefore need special knowledge and treatment; these are the two-plane and tri-plane fractures.


This Webinar serves as the basis for the knowledge of the fractures of this particular region, and defines the optimal treatment options at different ages.

What Orthopedic Surgeons Should Know about Antibiotics

Main Presenter: 
Olivier Borens, MD (Switzerland)
Chat Moderator: 
Andrej Trampuz, MD (Germany)


Infection after open fractures and even after standard fracture fixation procedures is a feared complication and often results in surgical revision. The surgical part should always be combined with systemic and local antibiotics.


The goal of this webinar is to present some principles for prophylactic use of antibiotics and the basic knowledge on systemic and local use of antibiotics every surgeon should know.
