Overview

Established worldwide as the "gold-standard" two-volume reference on fractures, Rockwood and Green's Fractures in Adults is now in its thoroughly revised, updated Sixth Edition. More than 80 of the world's foremost authorities provide comprehensive coverage of all bone and joint injuries, thoroughly discuss alternative methods for treating each injury, and present their own preferred methods.

This edition has a new co-editor—Charles Court-Brown of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh—and a more international group of contributors. The improved art program features 4,500 illustrations, most of which are new. Pearls and pitfalls have been added to the authors' preferred method presentations, and coverage of complications has been expanded.

Two CD-ROMs showing surgical exposures accompany the two-volume set.
