JPOSNA Fracture Quiz

Main Article Content

Ryan Muchow


This trauma ‘quiz’ represents an interactive session where POSNA members are able to work through 9 clinical scenarios to challenge how they would address the fracture problems.  Associated with each scenario is an OITE-style question and multiple choice options that seek the most preferred answer from the clinician.  In addition to the answer and follow-up radiographs, we have enlisted the opinions of three POSNA experts in trauma to provide an evidenced-based approach to thinking through each trauma problem. 

Our panel of experts include:

Jeff R. Sawyer, MD.  Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, Campbell Clinic, University of Tennessee Health Science center.  Dr. Sawyer has published >50 trauma-related articles, and has established himself as one of our society’s leaders in pediatric orthopedic trauma. 

Tony I. Riccio, MD.  Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, Children’s Health Dallas, UT Southwestern Medical Center.  Dr. Riccio, among many trauma-related endeavors, has spearheaded the effort to promote partnership between POSNA and the OTA, and has taught and published extensively on pediatric orthopedic trauma.

Susan A. Scherl, MD.  Children’s Hospital & Medical Center Omaha, University of Nebraska Medical Center.  Dr. Scherl has dedicated her career to the expert care of children with fractures and has published on all aspects of pediatric orthopedic trauma – from NAT to adolescent fractures to supracondylar humerus fractures.
