Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This third edition, four-volume textbook deals with the entire spectrum of treating a patient with a musculoskeletal condition or trauma with an emphasis on surgery.
Purpose: Its main purpose is to give a detailed accounting of the current operative techniques. The book also gives a good perspective on nonoperative treatment of orthopaedic disorders. These truly worthwhile objectives are met in most cases.
Audience: The book is written mainly for clinically active orthopedists and orthopedic residents. The editor is both nationally and internationally known as an authoritative orthopedist and outstanding educator. He is most ably assisted by seven section editors and over 300 contributing authors participate in this monumental work.
Features: The book is divided into nine sections with a total of 180 chapters. In section one surgical approaches, imaging techniques, pre- and postoperative planning are covered with general surgical principles. Section two covers closed and open fracture and dislocation treatment. The management of polytrauma and such problems as compartment syndrome nonunion, malunion, limb length discrepancy, and massive bone loss are discussed in detail. In section three, hand, upper extremity, and microvascular surgery are covered in a very comprehensive manner. Sports injuries in adolescent and adults are discussed well by the authors in section four. Joint reconstruction, primary and revision surgery are dealt with in section five. Interesting information about prosthetic implant material design and manufacture form part of this section. Roger Mann edits the authoritative section six on foot and ankle disorders. Joseph Lane edits section seven on skeletal disorders such as infection, neoplasms, and neurologic disorders. Hemophilia, osteoporosis, osteonecrosis, heterotopic ossification, and other interesting topics are well covered here. Spinal disorders and trauma and operative procedures are reserved for Section eight. Recent developments in tumor, infection and arthritis of the spine receive special attention. Finally, section nine covers pediatric disorders and related surgical procedures.
Assessment: The publisher has done a masterful job reorganizing this edition; the editor and publisher have successfully made the text and CD-ROM most user friendly. Every chapter reads and flows smoothly. Now Campbell's Operative Orthopedics, 9th edition (Mosby, 1998), the main comprehensive orthopedic textbook, has a serious competitor. Also, Chapman's text draws authors from around the country whereas the Campbell's relies mainly on physicians from the Campbell Clinic in Tennessee. This new competition between these excellent books can only result in better publications. It might be asking too much to have each orthopedist buy both textbooks, but I very strongly recommend that he or she take a good look at Chapman's text before automatically ordering the ninth edition of Campbell's. All medical science libraries are urged to have this outstanding work available for their readers.
This revised edition of (1993) is a massive, comprehensive reference in four volumes, with 180 chapters arranged to make it as useful as possible to the practicing orthopaedic surgeon. Each contributor describes his preferred method of performing specific operations<-->including insights gained from experience and discussion of how to avoid pitfalls and manage complications. The operative procedures are arranged partly according to anatomic region, partly according to surgical modality, and partly according to type of injury or disease<-->depending on the context on in which a procedure is most likely to be under consideration. Sections cover principles; fractures, dislocations, nonunions, and malunions; the hand; sports medicine; joint reconstruction, arthritis, and arthroplasty; the foot; neoplastic, infectious, neurologic and other skeletal disorders; the spine; and pediatric disorders. Editor Chapman (emeritus, U. of California Davis) has overseen the rewriting of this new edition, its reorganization, the addition of "information at a glance" features, the new use of color, and the efforts toward consistency in the illustrations.
