Salter IV fracture

Posted By Sam Dyer, Thursday, August 31, 2017
So working in a walk in ortho urgent care, I see all sorts of general orthopedic conditions. I never knew there were so many nursemaids elbows until I started it. You can imagine the LBP, the knee OA, the ankle sprains, etc. But every so often I get something I don't see very often. This is a Salter IV fracture of the middle phalanx. The kid was playing football and the ball impacted his finger awkwardly. Given the skeletal immaturity, will be treating this conservatively with a splint for a couple of weeks followed by buddy taping and early ROM.

Fun in Baltimore

Posted By Sam Dyer, Monday, August 28, 2017

Welcome home Baltimore attendees!

I'm taking a day off from my clinic job to catch up on emails and other tasks. I hope you all had safe travels and are back with family and friends. My thoughts and prayers to our colleagues in Texas; I hope that you all weren't affected by Harvey and if you were, I wish you a speedy return to normal.

PAOS sent all attendees a post conference survey, please complete it so we can have more information on how to improve our future meetings.

What did you like best about the meeting? I was quite impressed by the first ever poster presentations. Kudos to all of you who entered a project! Well done! I hope that we can expand this effort next year. We are also planning on student papers/presentations linked to the scholarships. If you know of a deserving student, please direct them to our scholarship page.

Also please utilize the forum section we have created. i would like to increase our member engagement.

Thanks to you all who made Baltimore a success.

Excited about Baltimore!!

Posted By Sam Dyer, Friday, August 11, 2017

Is anyone as excited about Baltimore as I am? Our committee has planned an exceptional event with instructional workshops, an awesome lineup of lectures, and fun social events. I can't wait to check out the inner harbor, Camden Yards, get some seafood, and enjoy myself for the week. I hope to see you all there.
