Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: The 51st contribution to the Monograph Series, which brings together a collection of focused chapters dedicated to a single topic, this book reviews the long-term effects of common pediatric orthopedic conditions such as slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), clubfoot, osteochondritis dissecans (OCD), tarsal coalitions, etc.
Purpose: Most of the books on these topics teach readers to identify the problem and recommend treatment when the patient is a child. Very few books provide an in-depth analysis of the effect of these problems on patients in adulthood.
Audience: This monograph is unique in its appeal to a broad audience of orthopedic and musculoskeletal physicians who treat both pediatric and adult patients. For those treating younger patients, the monograph will educate them on the potential long-term prognosis and emphasize the importance of optimizing treatment at a young age. For those treating older patients, the monograph will help them understand the underlying cause of problems and thereby assist in optimizing treatment. For example, recognizing a hip deformity from childhood that leads to femoral acetabular impingement may result in earlier treatment of an adult, thus avoiding full progression to arthritis.
Features: This monograph covers spine, hip, knees, feet, upper extremity, and even Down syndrome. The list is not comprehensive, but it clearly targets the most common problems with long-term effects. Each section is well written and impressive in the linking of a pediatric problem to the disability or problems faced in adulthood related to it.
Assessment: The AAOS Monograph Series is highly respected as an efficient and thorough source of information on a given topic, and this contribution does not fail to meet the high standards set by its 50 predecessors. This is a great addition to the institutional or orthopedic library as well as a nice addition to the personal library of the orthopedic surgeon who cares for patients with any of these common pediatric orthopedic problems.
