About this title:
The 5th edition of this classic text draws on the strength of previous editions and now includes reference to the latest surgical techniques available in Europe, Australia and the USA. Emphasis remains on the continually expanding use of fixation techniques, although conservative treatment options remain an integral part of the text.
The illustrations - which follow a logical sequence with succinct captions, and which accounted for much of the appeal and success of previous editions - have been fully updated and offer a rewarding and effective way to learn.
- New edition of this popular and highly respected book
- Practical, step-by-step guide to fracture assessment and management
- Contains discussion of traditional conservative techniques for managing fractures
- Combines clear line diagrams, drawn by the authors, with lucid, concise text in logical sequence
New to this edition:
- Expanded coverage of deep venous thrombosis
- Includes new devices and techniques, for example locked plate systems, and the use of vacuum dressings in soft tissue management
- New sections on 'damage control' orthopaedics, minimally invasive surgical techniques, MRSA, HIV and AIDS, and bone loss
- New clinical imaging
Suitable for medical students, junior doctors, orthopaedic trainees, A&E staff, physiotherapists and the rehabilitation team, this book should form part of the essential library of any healthcare professional involved with the management and care of fracture patients.
