Overview

This book covers the use of functional braces in the treatment of fractures. The authors' experience with functional bracing of several thousand fractures over the past 30 years clearly confirms the place and role of this treatment modality. Their experience, supported by extensive biomechanical and experimental animal research, indicates that the closed functional treatment of diaphyseal fractures of the tibia, humerus and ulna reliably produces satisfactory results in the majority of patients. The technology required for its implementation is uncomplicated. This reduces the cost of care significantly. An abundant number of representative clinical examples is used to illustrate the technique and to present scientific evaluation as well as clinical supportive data.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Riad Barmada
This book is an attractive 280-page publication outlining principles, indications, and results of shaft fractures of tibia, humerus, and hip. The purpose is to show the advantages of treatment of long bones with functional bracing. Orthopedic surgeons and residents are especially targeted. It could be very useful to trauma and emergency room physicians. The authors are known for their expertise on the subject. The book includes many x-ray reproductions and figures to illustrate the use of functional bracing and excellent reference lists. The book is useful to any physician and health care professional who deals with the treatment of patients with fractures. It is useful, in a sense, because it advocates nonsurgical treatment in an environment of popular aggressive surgical approach in fractures management. This book should be included in every medical library.
