The evolving health care environment warrants its physicians to be competent in basic practice management (PM) areas. A manifestation of this importance was reflected in the inaugural inclusion of a PM subsection on the 2017 Orthopaedic In-Training Examination. The purpose of this orthopaedic resident national survey study was to gain insight on the current state of formal residency education in PM. This study surveyed 500 orthopaedic residents nationwide in 2016. Resident participation was online, anonymous, and voluntary. Only complete survey responses were included, yielding a 49.2% (246/500) response rate. The majority of orthopaedic residents (72.4%, 178/246) reported no formal education in PM topics, and 86.2% (212/246) responded that they do not receive direct feedback on individual accuracy of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code case logging. Of the residents without formal education in PM, 87.1% (155/178) desire its implementation. The evolving health care system is becoming increasingly reliant on physicians to provide cost-effective, value-based health care to its patients. Consideration should be given to formally incorporating basic teaching elements on important PM topics at the residency training level. (Journal of Surgical Orthopaedic Advances 28(2):81-88, 2019).

In patients with traumatic pelvic fracture urethral injuries (PFUI), the interaction between urethral management and orthopaedic decision-making remains unknown. We aimed to survey orthopaedic and uro...
The attitudes of orthopaedic surgeons regarding radiology reporting is not well-described in the literature. We surveyed Orthopaedic Surgeons in Australia and New Zealand to assess if they routinely r...
The training process and practice of orthopaedic surgery is demanding and arduous. Accordingly, grit, self-control, and conscientiousness are desirable qualities in orthopaedic surgeons. Some establis...
Maintaining competence and keeping skills and knowledge in children's orthopaedic nursing alive are problematic in both the UK and Australia. The dearth of dedicated postgraduate courses for this spec...
Through an international survey, we assessed whether deciding to operatively treat an intraarticular distal radius fracture (DRF) is guided by identifiable patient and surgeon factors. Additionally, w...
Patients seen in the Orthopaedic Trauma clinic will be asked to consent for potential video/picture recording using the Google Glass device during their visit with the orthopaedic surgeon ...
This study investigates the agreement between extended scope physiotherapists (ESP) and orthopaedic surgeons (OS) on diagnosis and treatment plan in an orthopaedic outpatient shoulder clin...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of precision methods that quantify injury and response to injury to predict how short-term clinical outcomes are affected by initial and st...
This study evaluates an accelerated schedule of theta-burst stimulation using a transcranial magnetic stimulation device for orthopaedic trauma patients. In this open label study, all part...

Union of the fragments of a fractured bone in a faulty or abnormal position. If two bones parallel to one another unite by osseous tissue, the result is a crossunion. (From Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 4th ed)
Operative immobilization or ankylosis of two or more vertebrae by fusion of the vertebral bodies with a short bone graft or often with diskectomy or laminectomy. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed, p236; Dorland, 28th ed)
The pull on a limb or a part thereof. Skin traction (indirect traction) is applied by using a bandage to pull on the skin and fascia where light traction is required. Skeletal traction (direct traction), however, uses pins or wires inserted through bone and is attached to weights, pulleys, and ropes. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed)
The planned and carefully managed manual movement of the musculoskeletal system, extremities, and spine to produce increased motion. The term is sometimes used to denote a precise sequence of movements of a joint to determine the presence of disease or to reduce a dislocation. In the case of fractures, orthopedic manipulation can produce better position and alignment of the fracture. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed, p264)
Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It seeks to improve oral, dental and craniofacial health through research, research training, and the dissemination of health information by conducting and supporting basic and clinical research. It was established in 1948 as the National Institute of Dental Research and re-named in 1998 as the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
