A Novel Low-Cost Surgical Simulation Tool for Pinning Supracondylar Humerus Fractures


Simulation-based training is one way to improve basic competence for surgical trainees and thus improve patient safety. Closed reduction and percutaneous pinning of a supracondylar humerus fracture is a common procedure that encompasses many basic orthopaedic skills and has been identified as a residency milestone. Despite this, no quantitative tools exist to help learners attain this basic skill. This study seeks to validate a quantitative, low-cost simulation-based training tool for teaching orthopaedic surgery trainees the fundamentals of fracture stabilization with pins.

A novel, low-cost simulation model and training session for supracondylar humerus fracture pinning resulted in improved performance in stabilizing a supracondylar humerus model and increased trainee knowledge ability, confidence, and skill.

Journal of Orthopedic Oncology offers information in all aspects of primary, malignant tumors. Osteosarcoma, Ewing's sarcoma, chondrosarcoma, chordoma, and soft tissue sarcomas etc., it also deals with diagnostic methods, therapeutic approaches, clinical, laboratory research and reconstructive techniques.

Journal includes a wide range of fields in its discipline to create a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the journal and the editorial office promises a peer review process for the submitted manuscripts for the quality of publishing.

Journal uses Editorial Tracking System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Orthopedics & Oncology or outside experts; at least two independent reviewer’s approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system.
