Fracture Game 2000

Producer: Michigan State University

This is an interactive program that is educational in general, however, its main purpose is to be a ready reference for fracture management in small animals. A practitioner, resident, intern, or student that has a fracture presented to them can go to this program and follow down the algorithmic orthopaedic tree until they find a similar fracture. Using the interactive process, they can determine the best treatment for that specific fracture. The program involves all bones of the dog and cat, and consists of 189 fracture cases, 719 illustrations and photos, 1,302 radiographs, and 270 MB of knowledge. In this game, for each case the users can practice their reduction skills by bringing each fragment, one at a time, from the pre-operative radiograph into reduction until they have reconstructed the entire bone.
