Overview

Obtain the best outcomes from the latest techniques with help from a "who's who" of orthopaedic trauma experts! In print and online, you'll find the in-depth knowledge you need to manage any type of traumatic injury in both adults and children. Major updates keep you up to speed on current trends such as the management of osteoporotic and fragility fractures, locked plating technology, post-traumatic reconstruction, biology of fracture repair, biomechanics of fractures and fixation, disaster management, occupational hazards of radiation and blood-borne infection, effective use of orthotics, and more. A DVD of operative video clips shows you how to perform 25 key procedures step by step. A new, full-color page layout makes it easier to locate the answers you need quickly. And now, for the first time, you can access the complete contents online, for enhanced ease and speed of reference!

• Two volumes on adult trauma deliver complete, absolutely current coverage of relevant anatomy and biomechanics, mechanisms of injury, diagnostic approaches, treatment options, and associated complications, equipping you to confidently approach every form of adult traumatic injury.

• A third volume on pediatric trauma, edited by Drs. Green and Swiontkowski, covers all types of traumatic musculoskeletal injuries in children and adolescents with expert, up-to the-minute discussions of growth and development, pathology, epidemiology, biomechanics, operative management, complications, child abuse, sports medicine, and more.

• Enhanced and updated coverage keeps you current on the latest knowledge, procedures, and trends - including post-traumatic reconstruction, management of osteoporotic and fragility fractures, locked plating systems, mini incision techniques, biology of fracture repair, biomechanics of fractures and fixation, disaster management, occupational hazards of radiation and blood-borne infection, effective use of orthotics, and much more.

• More than six hours of operative videos on DVD demonstrate 25 of the very latest and most challenging techniques in real time, including minimally invasive vertebral disc resection, vertebroplasty, and lumbar decompression and stabilization.

• Online access allows you to rapidly search the complete contents from any computer.

• New editor Christian Kretek contributes additional international expertise to further enhance the already exceptional editorial lineup.

• An all-new, more user-friendly full-color text design enables you to find answers more quickly, and more efficiently review the key steps of each operative technique.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a comprehensive, three-volume textbook and web product that covers injuries to the musculoskeletal system of adults and children.
Purpose: The main purpose is to make available to orthopedic and trauma surgeons a resource that can be used to appropriately treat skeletally injured patients with proven and current methods.
Audience: Orthopedic and trauma surgeons are the primary audiences, although trainees in these and other areas are also targeted.
Features: The first volume focuses on general principles, general topics, and the spine and pelvis. It thoroughly covers fracture treatment history, skeletal repair processes, biomechanics of fractures, internal fixation principles, multiple trauma, initial care, disaster management, and occupational hazards. General topics include radiation safety, bloodborne pathogens, pharmacologic management, pain care, antibiotic care, anticoagulation, complications, compartment syndrome, soft tissue injury issues, gunshot wounds, pathologic fractures, fragility fractures, osteomyelitis, nonunions, physical impairment, and outcomes research. The spine and pelvis topics include spine orthotics, cervical injuries, and fractures of the entire spine, sacrum, pelvic ring disruptions, and acetabular fractures. The second volume covers the upper and lower extremities. Here, common variety fractures seen in general orthopedic practices are thoroughly covered by highly regarded experts. The typical chapter is includes an introduction and overview of relevant anatomy, classification, patient management, surgical technique, complications, and outcome. References are relevant and thorough. There are abundant color illustrations, but the photographs vary in quality. The four senior editors for the adult volumes are: Bruce B. Browner, MD, MS, University of Connecticut; Jesse B. Jupiter, MD., Harvard Medical School; Alan M. Levine, MD, Lapidus Cancer Institute, Baltimore, Maryland; Peter G. Trafton, MD, Brown University, and Christian Krettek, MD, Hannover Medical School, Germany. These well-known editors are supported by a score of dedicated contributors. The third, and smaller, children's volume is a second edition and it takes a more low-key approach than the two adult volumes. The editors, Neil E. Green, MD, Vanderbilt University, and Marc F. Swiontkowski, MD, University of Minnesota, are seasoned pediatric orthopedic surgeons. The chapters are thorough and well laid out with an emphasis on fracture management. The sections on the authors' preferred treatment are most useful.
Assessment: What a job well done! This monumental work of over 3,700 pages simply has no equal. The closest, and earliest, rival is Rockwood, Green, and Wilkins' Fractures, 7th edition, Bucholz et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2010). This fourth edition includes a DVD with videos and access to a web site (Expert Consult) to better serve contemporary readers. It is safe to say that all the goals of the publisher and editors are met. I highly recommend this publication to all orthopedic surgeons and skeletal traumatologists. Residents and fellows training in this field must read it and all medical science libraries are encouraged to have a copy in their reference section.
