Abstract

Abstract Title: Orthopedic Implants With Imaging Correlation

Presenter name: Johnson Tran, MS-III; Woongsoon Choi, MS-IV; Spencer Smith, M.D.

Purpose:

Orthopedic surgery is an important discipline that encompasses numerous procedures that entail placement of various pins, screws, plates, rods, prostheses, and other hardware. Virtually every healthcare provider will encounter many patients with orthopedic implants; however, medical students at the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine have minimal hands-on exposure to such implants. Presented here are 16 orthopedic implants matched with corresponding radiographic images. This exhibit allows students to personally handle different pieces of hardware while visualizing how and where they are used in orthopedic procedures.

Methods:

The surplus orthopedic hardware on display was donated to our team by the Baylor Surgical Hospital at Fort Worth. We then identified each implant and searched the internet for matching radiographic images that demonstrate their in vivo utilization in actual patients.

Results and Conclusion:

We successfully identified 16 orthopedic implants and obtained correlative radiographs. This poster, which will remain accessible to students on permanent display in a school laboratory, is a unique educational tool which allows students to directly interact with real orthopedic implants while comprehending their utility through via correlative imaging.
