Editorial Reviews

Edward Abraham
This is the second edition of a book broken up into 65 chapters with 62 contributors, most of whom are from Minnesota. The purpose is to present elbow problems and their solutions with a new emphasis on surgical technique. The material was thoroughly covered and appears to meet the objectives set out by the author. The book is written for orthopedic surgeons and orthopedic residents. In most instances, the contributors are authorities in their field. The book is very well illustrated, but a significant number of illustrations are from other publications. The book is divided into many more chapters than is customary. For instance, there are separate chapters for loose bodies, and in the chapter on supracondylar fractures in children, the contributor failed to use current theories about the types of fractures with regard to periosteal changes and the role of the medial bony hinge in maintaining fracture reduction. The text thoroughly covers the diseases and disorders of the elbow joint. One has to question the wisdom of breaking the book up into so many chapters, which can be as short as six pages, including photos and illustrations. Also, there are too many cooks (contributors), writing about a joint that the author describes in the preface as ""not frequently injured or involved with disease."" In spite of these distractions, the book is a major work that should be in all medical libraries and easily accessible to practitioners and residents
