I would divide my management plan into early management and surgical management.

In the acute setting, there are several Early Management interventions to consider:
– After reduction, an above-knee plaster will immobilise the limb and provide analgesia, stability and rest for the soft tissues. It also allows for repeated neurovascular examinations.
– I would immobilised the knee to 20° of flexion as this prevents posterior subluxation of the tibia.
– Post-reduction X-rays are vital.
– I would consider application of an external-fixator if there was: a) vascular injury b) gross instability.
– I would also arrange an MRI to assess for bone and soft tissues injuries and also for potential surgical planning.
– Ongoing surgical treatment should ideally be performed by knee surgeon familiar with multi-ligament injuries

In the longer-term, important factors influence Surgical Management:
– Non-operative management results in inferior outcomes
– Regarding timing, there is increasingly a consensus that early surgery should be performed (within 2–3 weeks)
– A staged approach is still the practice of some authors, opting to reconstruct the PCL ± medial and lateral structures acutely and the ACL later

Septic arthritis is joint sepsis caused by pathogens invading the joint via direct or haematogenous routes, in contrast to reactive arthritis where there is an immunological response to pathogens.

Yes, the Allman Classification with Neer’s Modification. This broadly classifies the fracture according to their location on the clavicle. Group 1 are middle third fractures and are the most common, Group 2 is lateral third fractures and can be subdivided as per Neer’s classification, and Group 3 is medial third fractures.

(We are aware this year interviews will be held online and you will not be required to perform technical skills. Interviewers may still ask about procedural knowledge in the clinical station and therefore learning key steps is still essential for the interview and for your practice).
