Guys, in your ED:
Are there any clear indications (or a protocol) as to what types of fractures need to be treated surgically (in the OR)?
Are there any clear indications (or a protocol) as to what types of fractures need to be reduced under fluoroscopy?
Regarding forearm fractures. Do the orthopedic surgeons in your facility treat with closed reduction all types of fractures? What about Prox. shaft or Mid. shaft Radius? Prox/Mid both bones? Monteggia? What about fractures that occurred 48 hours or more prior ED admission?
