Overview

Minimally Invasive Orthopaedic Trauma

The first resource of its kind to address minimally invasive procedures in orthopaedic trauma surgery, this essential reference details a range of emerging techniques designed to reduce patient recovery and rehabilitation time. Stepwise coverage addresses the latest approaches, including indirect fracture reduction and fixation, leading to less tissue and vascular damage and more complete recovery. Twenty chapters, each devoted to a single procedure, highlight relevant anatomy, tools, and techniques in a straightforward style applicable directly to practice. Authoritative perspectives from leaders in the field assure readers of current, accurate information. Detailed step-by-step guidance takes readers through each procedure to help build understanding and minimize error. Detailed line drawings highlight underlying anatomy to help optimize results.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

‘The chapters are concisely written and standardized to include sections on indications, patient positioning, surgical approach, surgical technique, complications, postoperative care and rehabilitation, and outcomes’
 
‘illustrations and intraoperative photos are very helpful and the x-ray reproductions are pertinent and easy to visualize’

Reviewer: Scott A Magnes, MD (Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center)
Description: This is the first of a new series of technically-based books on minimally invasive orthopaedic surgery. The book covers minimally invasive operative treatment of specific fractures of the upper and lower extremities, clavicle, pelvis, and acetabulum in the adult.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is to cover technical aspects of minimally invasive operative treatment of specific fractures of the upper and lower extremities, clavicle, pelvis, and acetabulum in the adult. The aim of minimally invasive orthopaedic trauma surgery is to obtain osteosynthesis with minimal disturbance to the biology of the fracture, without violating the principles of fracture fixation or compromising the quality of the surgery. The authors successfully meet this objective.
Audience: The audience for this book would include all interested in minimally-invasive orthopaedic trauma surgery. This book is particularly germane to those less experienced in this area, often citing helpful hints to include patient positioning and fluoroscopy set-up.
Features: The book covers a wide range of fractures that would be treated by an orthopaedic generalist as well as several fracture types that would most often be treated by an orthopaedic trauma subspecialist. The chapters are concisely written and standardized to include sections on indications, patient positioning, surgical approach, surgical technique, complications, postoperative care and rehabilitation, and outcomes. The illustrations and intraoperative photos are very helpful and the x-ray reproductions are pertinent and easy to visualize. In addition, two interesting chapters on the historical perspective of nonoperative and operative fracture management and the biologic basis of minimally invasive osteosynthesis are also included.
Assessment: While other recent books have successfully addressed modern technical aspects of fracture fixation, this book is unique in its primary purpose of concentrating only on minimally invasive techniques. As a result, it includes chapters on less commonly utilized fracture fixation techniques such as forearm and midclavicular fracture nailing that many other books do not cover.
