Abstract

Rapid advances in the field of orthopaedic trauma have improved treatment options while keeping pace with the changing characteristics of the trauma population. The availability of locking implants has changed the approach to treating fractures in older patients with osteoporotic bones as well as in those with comminuted and complex injuries. Minimally invasive approaches have allowed the preservation and protection of soft tissues while allowing adequate reduction and fixation of fractures. This biologically friendly approach coupled with newer implants and instruments will improve early and long-term outcomes in trauma care.
