Essential Surgical Care: a Clinical Procedures E-learning Kit
There are so many websites on Internet, but we always tend to use the same websites over and over again.
Well, today I was looking for “coaptation splint” which was part of UW question (by the way I answered correctly on this one, because of my almost 2 yrs trauma and ortho experience), when I discovered this excellent surgical guide. We all know clinicalcasesandimages website as a good example of guides for procedures,but steinergraphics is excellent too, with a lot of information in it. Give it a try and report in comments what you think about it. This is the link to the answer of the UW question, which was about the treatment of mid-shaft fracture of the humerus. Just 2 quick points for this type of fracture which also applies for other fractures of the large bones in the human body:
1. Always check neurovascular status.
2. Always evaluate the proximal and distal joint of the injured extremity.
