Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: Part of a series of monographs published by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, this book describes general principles of orthopedics and overall management of penetrating gunshot injuries to the extremities.
Purpose: It is part of a series that draws on current literature to support diagnosis, initial treatment, and management decision making for specific orthopedic conditions.
Audience: Senior orthopedic trainees or practitioners are an appropriate audience for this review, authored by orthopedic and trauma leaders from the United States.
Features: After a discussion of epidemiologic principles related to gunshot wounds, wound ballistics, and psychosocial outcomes, the book reviews penetrating trauma to the extremities, beginning with resuscitation and soft tissue management. Subsequent chapters focus on vascular injury, joint trauma, and long bone and pelvic fractures. Chapters are clearly written, well illustrated with color drawings and photographs, and include reference lists. For the most part, classic works are cited, though some references date to within a year of publication. Another important part of a work such as this is radiographs. For the most part, plain radiographs are employed and they reproduce with good quality. The table of contents simply lists chapters while the subject index is perhaps too brief, though it contains separate entries for figures and tables.
Assessment: This nicely illustrated reference for traumatologists and orthopedists effectively and concisely presents essential management principles.
