Operation Fixation

Operation fixation was an editorial project that ran from July-August 2021. It was the first editorial project to be run on the Discord server. When I uploaded this case:

Failed posterior instrumented lumbar fusion (rID: 89283)

After realizing our Reference Articles on spinal fixation was incomplete, a list of common surgical procedures was completed and the project was launched and a team assembled on Discord of (in alphabetical order):

  • Dr Joachim Feger, radiologist, Germany
  • Dr Jeremy Jones, radiologist, Scotland
  • Dr Henry Knipe, radiologist, England
  • Dr Fabio Macori, radiologist, Italy
  • Faiyaz Rahman, medical student, Australia

We went to work and created 29 new articles and updated 8 existing articles. This is a fantastic result having developed a little but important corner of Radiopaedia. Also, the first project run on Discord was a great success and after the project, Dr Fabio Macori was appointed subeditor and Faiyaz Rahman appointed student editor on our editorial board.
