Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This book describes complications of injury and their treatment.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to prepare the surgeon to meet the complications occurring in the course of managing the injured patient. Guidelines for management and prevention of complications are presented. Given the myriad of presentations and implications of injury, it is important to review in one setting the medical, social, and economic pitfalls confronting the practitioner in this field. This work represents an important step in this direction.
Audience: This work is directed at the practitioner and trainee dealing with injury in its various forms. The author and contributors are recognized practitioners in various aspects of trauma care in centers throughout the United States.
Features: This is an attractive hardbound book organized according to types of complications in its initial portion, followed by an anatomic breakdown of complications. Chapters are short and well referenced, with citations as recent as 2 to 3 years before publication. The art includes line drawings of good quality. Photographs and reproduction of radiographs are black-and-white with inconsistent quality. Although the table of contents is brief, the index is extensive with notations according to table and figure as well as to a topic.
Assessment: This work offers a unique perspective on treatment of the injured and belongs on the shelf of the practitioner with responsibility for the care of these patients. As in many multiauthored texts, there is significant duplication among chapters and lack of coverage in some important areas. For example, although many portions of the text describe chest-wall and lung complications, details of treatment strategies including mechanical ventilation are never provided. Other areas such as multiple organ failure and geriatrics are concise and useful reviews. The book would benefit from a more even distribution of line drawings and an improvement in the quality of photograph and radiograph reproduction.

A textbook that explicitly concentrates on arming surgeons with the knowledge to meet the challenges of the myriad complications that may be encountered in treating trauma patients. The first section addresses the five major complications (hemorrhage, respiratory failure, renal failure, sepsis, and multi-organ syndrome) that can occur in any trauma patient. The second section, Prehospital and Emergency Center Trauma Complications, discusses the problems inherent in the first stages of managing a trauma patient, as well as those that can occur within systems (transportation, communication). The third section addresses complications specific to certain areas or populations (e.g., immunology, pediatrics, radiology, wounding agents), and the final section discusses complications by anatomical region.
