Completely updated for its Second Edition, this acclaimed Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery volume presents the most advanced, successful surgical techniques for fractures of the upper extremity, lower extremity, pelvis, and acetabulum. The world's foremost surgeons describe their preferred techniques in step-by-step detail, explain the indications and contraindications, identify pitfalls and potential complications, and offer pearls and tips for improving results. The book is thoroughly illustrated with full-color, sequential, surgeon's-eye view intraoperative photographs, as well as drawings by noted medical illustrators.
This edition includes nine new chapters—Clavicle Fractures: ORIF; Femoral Neck Fractures: Arthroplasty; Intertrochanteric Hip Fractures: IM Hip Screw; Hip Arthroplasty for Intertrochanteric Hip Fractures; Femoral Shaft Fractures: Retrograde Nailing; Supracondylar Femur Fractures: ORIF; Proximal Tibial Fractures: Locked Plating; Tibial Shaft Fractures: Spatial Frame; and Periprosthetic Femur Fractures. Seventeen chapters have been rewritten by new contributing authors.
Description: This second edition book covers the surgical treatment of skeletal fractures in adults.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe the current and effective way to treat common problematic fractures, a worthy objective that is met. The editor, Donald Wiss, MD, from Southern California Orthopaedic Institute, is best known for his work on fracture treatment.
Audience: Orthopedic surgeons caring for adult patients with trauma are the audience, and orthopedic residents can also benefit from this book.
Features: Each of the 46 chapters discusses a different fracture type. The authors are chosen based on their experience with the specific fracture. Every chapter is extensively illustrated with color drawings of excellent quality as well as intraoperative photographs. The surgical steps are detailed. An important subsection on indications and complications form the beginning of each chapter. References at the end of each chapter are limited to recommended readings.
Assessment: This book is one in a series of 13 that deal with Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery overseen by editor-in-chief Bernard F. Morrey, MD. This entry is written by experienced surgeons who have done a great job. I highly recommend it to all orthopedic surgeons and orthopedic residents.
