Musculoskeletal case studies for medical students
Table: Case Selection
This series of trauma case studies is intended for Medical
Students, General Practitioners and others, who are not Orthopaedic specialists,
but have to manage trauma.
In the discussion on the final view page, it is
assumed that the practitioner responsible for the initial care of the patient
has no instrumentation for definitive internal fixations, or the expertise to
do anything beyond necessary emergency procedures. It is assumed that these
patients can be referred on for subsequent procedures.
