Live Webinar: The Troublesome Triad: Knee trauma, Peroneal Nerve injuries and Foot Drop – The Team Approach
The Troublesome Triad: Knee trauma, Peroneal Nerve injuries and Foot Drop – The Team Approach

Description: This is a joint venture with AOFAS, AOSSM and ASSH. We will provide multi-subspecialty perspectives from specialists in hand/nerve, sports/trauma, and foot/ankle in a case-based framework to describe the current management of the knee trauma, the peroneal nerve injury and the treatment techniques for foot drop.

Subspecialty perspectives on peroneal nerve injury following knee trauma.  Talk topics: 

1. Anatomy, diagnosis, and prognosis of peroneal nerve injuries (knee to foot/ankle):  Christopher Dy, MD

2. What is the most appropriate initial management? Special emphasis on periarticular fractures, postoperative palsies, and multilig knee injury:Matthew Matava, MD

3. What is the role of nerve decompression and nerve reconstruction (transfers vs grafting)? Indications, timing, technique, and outcomes :Susan Mackinnon, MD

4. What is the role of tendon transfers? Indications, timing, technique, and outcomes:  Jeffrey Johnson, MD 

5. Interactive case discussions 

 

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: To provide an understanding of the surgical anatomy of the common peroneal nerve and its branches.

Objective 2: To discuss a framework for diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment for both traumatic and compressive neuropathies of the common peroneal nerve

Objective 3: To describe the value in a multidisciplinary approach to treatment of peroneal nerve injuries, including coordination of the initial management of the musculoskeletal and nerve trauma

Objective 4:  To review the current reconstructive techniques for both nerve- and tendon transfer-based reconstruction.
