Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Scott A Magnes, MD (Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center)
Description: This is the fifth edition of a succinct and pragmatic guide to treating patients with fractures. It addresses a comprehensive range of fractures occurring in both adults and children. The previous edition was published in 2010.
Purpose: The book is intended as a "comprehensive, useful guide for the management of patients with fractures and associated injuries." It provides a bottom line approach to evaluation and treatment of fractures throughout the body in both the adult and pediatric populations.
Audience: The audience includes any individuals who treat fractures in adults or children and desire a ready resource for succinct information on their evaluation and treatment. It would be especially useful for orthopedic residents. The authors are well-published orthopedic surgeons.
Features: The book is well organized, allowing readers to obtain practical information about evaluation and treatment quickly. The chapter on intraoperative patient positioning and fluoroscopy for fracture surgery is an important topic and one that is often missing from orthopedic trauma books. It is a very welcome addition to this update. There are but a few references, but this may be due to its compact design.
Assessment: This handbook accomplishes its purpose of providing a quick reference for fracture care. It is quite comprehensive in light of its small size.
