Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, M.D.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: Medical illustrations from the Netter Collection highlight this update of a book on the medical illnesses of the spine and lower limbs.
Purpose: The purpose is to update the first edition with the current understanding of the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of different diseases and conditions of the musculoskeletal system.
Audience: The authors intend this work for a wide spectrum of trainees and teachers at all levels in both the medical and allied health professions. The editors are senior faculty from the Cleveland Clinic's Orthopaedic & Rheumatologic Institute. They have recruited 16 contributors, of which 40 percent are residents or fellow physicians. Five medical illustrators, led by Carlos A.G. Machado, MD, add new illustrations.
Features: The book is organized into five sections covering the spine, pelvis-hip-thigh, knee, lower leg, and foot-ankle. They are superbly supported by Netter's amazing and accurate color illustrations. The written text goes hand in hand with the original plate illustrations and, in the case of updated surgical procedures and classifications, the more recent drawings from Dr. Machado and his associates. References are few in number.
Assessment: This work is all about Netter's collection of color medical illustrations. With the passage of time and changes in procedures, however, more of these illustrations are expected to become less relevant. The book effectively addresses this problem by using new illustrations that mimic the style of the master. Those of us in academic medicine greatly appreciate the teaching value of these illustrations for their accuracy and clarity of message. This update is an important contribution to all medical science libraries. I strongly recommend it for anatomists, orthopedists, neurosurgeons, podiatrists, medical illustrators, and trainees in these areas.
