Whether it is in A&E, on the ward or on a football pitch, fracture management forms an important part of our work. Fracture management is easy and logical, as long as you understand the principles.
This lecture will explain the logic and principles of fracture management with the importance of a personalised approach. We will discuss initial management, X-rays and both surgical and non-surgical treatment options.
