Overview

The thoroughly revised, updated Seventh Edition of Rockwood and Wilkins' Fractures in Children offers a complete print and multimedia package: the established "gold-standard" reference on pediatric fractures and access to an integrated content website. The world's foremost authorities provide comprehensive coverage of all bone and joint injuries seen in children, thoroughly discuss alternative methods for treating each injury, and present their own preferred methods. This edition has a more international group of contributors, more tips and pearls in the authors' preferred method presentations, and expanded coverage of complications. New chapters cover casting, remodeling and what is unique about children's fractures; principles of physical examination of children with fractures; and treacherous children's fractures.

A companion website contains the fully searchable text, an image bank, and videos of the ten most difficult procedures.
