APMA’s Lauge-Hansen Ankle Fractures iBook
Being able to make an accurate diagnosis of an ankle fracture can be challenging for a variety of reasons. Part of the difficulty arises because of the complex anatomy of the area and the rotational mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of the different injuries. APMA’s Lauge-Hansen Ankle Fractures iBook provides a new, innovative approach to this complex topic. Interactive modules allow the reader to view the relationships between the bones and ligaments of the ankle, providing a more comprehensive understanding of ankle fractures. This APMA iBook is available to download for FREE for all Apple users, in the Apple bookstore.
APMA offers a scholarship for third- and fourth-year students. The application period starts in the fall and runs through early April each year.
