AO Surgery Reference unveils new periprosthetic knee fracture module

The award-winning AO Surgery Reference has released its new module covering periprosthetic knee fractures —a topic of great interest to reconstructive surgeons, including those in the AO Recon network. The new module was spearheaded by Executive Editor Michael Baumgaertner with authors/experts Michael Huo, Michael Leslie, and Iain McFadyen. Baumgaertner, an AO Trauma faculty member and chairperson of the AO Trauma International Board, said the new module “should be the first resource to employ when injured patients with this fracture present.”
