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.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Riad Barmada, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: The sixth edition of this two volume set provides up-to-date information on fracture treatment. Since 1975 when the first edition was published, this book has been a very popular reference for orthopedic surgeons.
Purpose: The purpose is to update the previous edition with the recent advances in the management of fractures.
Audience: The targeted audience includes orthopedic surgeons, residents, and trauma physicians.
Features: The book is divided into four sections. The first deals with general principles regarding fractures classification, internal fixation, bone healing, complications, and other conditions associated with trauma. The second section is dedicated to fractures and dislocations of the upper extremity. Sections three and four, spine and lower extremity injuries are discussed. The book provides detailed descriptions of approaches and surgical techniques.
Assessment: This comprehensive reference for treatment of fractures is authored by experts who are known nationally and internationally. It is well organized and includes good quality illustrations. Several alternative treatments are discussed along with the author's preferred method. In my opinion, it is the best reference on fracture treatment available.
