AO Trauma courses in fracture management have been held worldwide for over 50 years and are considered by orthopedic trauma surgeons as a very important continuous training. Jointly chaired by Dr Tariq Amin Sheikh, senior consultant at Khoula Hospital and Dr Narayan Ramachandran, senior consultant at the Armed Forces Hospital, the course was attended by more than 50 surgeons from all over Oman.

BHC, in collaboration with its partner DePuy Synthes, which provides instruments, implants and technical support for practical workshops, extended turnkey logistics support forhe threeday event held at the Haffa House Hotel, Muscat. The course was taught by faculty members from the Khoula Hospital, Armed Forces Hospital as well as hospitals in Ibri and Sohar.

Surgeons attending the course had the basic AO principles of operative fracture management reemphasised, and concentrated on their application in the management of complex fractures using advanced techniques.

Surgeons benefitted from the modular format of the course with each module consisting of several short case-based lectures. In practical exercises, surgeons were trained in the application of different techniques on plastic sawbones, using actual fracture fixation tools and implants. Interactive case discussions in small groups helped the participants to evaluate their decision making and management skills.
