Overview

Trauma management is an everyday necessity in small animal practice, and the correct approach to managing fractures is vital for both short-and long-term success. This manual describes the theory and key concepts of fracture fixation and healing and deals with orthopaedic surgical principles and instrumentation and approaches to different types of fracture. The manual also gives a completely new practical guide to surgery for each situation. Specially commissioned full-colour illustrations show operative techniques step by step, and charts give full information on preparation, positioning, instrumentation and procedures. Specific fractures are dealt with by region, with the emphasis on decision making and practical advice. The final part of the book covers the treatment and prevention of complications.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: C. W. Smith, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is a practical, well-illustrated, easy-to-read and understand fracture repair manual summarizing current methods of managing specific fractures and fracture complications in dogs and cats. With contributors representing both academia and private practice, it provides concise and authoritative coverage of fracture repair.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the reader with an orthopedic text dedicated to practical management of fractures in the dog and cat. Furthermore, the manual is written and illustrated to guide surgeons through the procedure, emphasizing both potential pitfalls and practical tips.
Audience: According to the editors, the audience includes small animal veterinarians and veterinary surgeons. I would extend this audience to include veterinary students, small animal interns, and small animal surgery residents.
Features: The first two parts of the manual provide the reader with the basic science and principles of fracture management. An interesting historical review of fracture management is provided to create interest and perspective. Part 3 describes and illustrates the management of specific fractures by region. In the beginning of each chapter, the types of fractures are described along with recommended methods of repair. The reader is then referred to the relevant operative technique toward the end of the chapter where discussion and color illustrations of the approach and repair techniques are included. Particularly useful hints and tips regarding animal position, special instrumentation, need for an assistant, and warnings are included and color highlighted. Part 4 includes a discussion of complications of fracture management. Excellent illustrations, pictures, and drawings are abundant throughout this manual. Pictures of radiographs are good to excellent in quality with an occasional inconsistent orientation.
Assessment: This is an excellent practical guide to small animal fracture management. It is current, well illustrated, concise, and well written. Color highlighting draws the attention of the reader to important points. Compared to Brinker, Piermattei, and Flo's Handbook of Small Animal Orthopedics and Fracture Repair, 3rd Edition (WB Saunders, 1997), this manual is more colorful, attractive, and reader friendly, but is limited to fracture treatment. The reader will find this an enjoyable book to read and use.
