Overview

In its thoroughly revised, updated Seventh Edition, Rockwood and Green's Fractures in Adults offers a complete print and multimedia package: the established "gold-standard" two-volume reference on fractures and access to an integrated content website. 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.

Coverage begins with a section on General Principles, including biomechanics, classification, epidemiology, principles of internal and external fixation, bone grafting, outcome studies, and imaging. Subsequent sections focus on fractures by anatomic location. Chapters in these sections follow the same organization: principles of management, surgical anatomy, current treatment options, author's preferred treatment, complications, and controversies. This edition has 33 new contributors and new chapters on principles of nerve injury and complex regional pain syndrome; psychological aspects of trauma; gunshot and wartime injuries; principles of mangled extremity management; amputations; limb salvage reconstruction; principles of post-traumatic infections; principles of nonunions; and principles of malunions.

A companion website contains the fully searchable text, an image bank, and videos of 25 surgical procedures.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Overall, the seventh edition of Rockwood and Green's Fractures in Adults /Rockwood and Wilkins' Fractures in Children is an outstanding body of work presenting the most comprehensive and current treatment of musculoskeletal trauma possible. I turned to it repeatedly during my review and found the information illuminating and useful on each occasion. In addition to being valuable for specific clinical questions, many of the chapters are so well written they make for very enjoyable general reading as well. Anyone involved in the care of these injuries, from medical students and residents to seasoned practitioners, could benefit from the thorough discussion of the available evidence and solid expert opinion, using these items as an excellent starting point for supplementary reading in the literature. Furthermore, given the approach of staying up to date, enlisting expert authors and editors, and continuing to present an international perspective, this resource is poised to continue to be a benchmark reference in the care of adults and children with orthopedic or trauma injuries"

John L. Zeller, MD, PhD, Contributing Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, March 2011

 "This book is with being advised with all those which practice traumatology that it is senior or resident."

‘‘The encyclopedia par excellence of traumatology."

"This one is complete with precise descriptions since the diagnosis with classifications until the treatment while passing by the complications."
