    Once again interesting at different shops. We use slightly different doses of meds for sedation. Being an academic institution we also have Ortho do most of our reductions, but here they do it and then cast it too (no PA to help them) and they put fiberglass instead of plaster. But that reduction looks like exactly how I've seen many many many done.

    Can use ultrasound vascular probe to ensure adequate reduction prior to casting and post-reduction xray.

    Brutal display of overenthusiastic reduction attempts.
