Treatment of hip fractures is invariably surgical with the vast number of operations being performed by junior surgeons in training. The internal fixation of hip fractures is the commonest operation a junior will perform. They currently rely on the big orthopaedic texts to give them the information they need; these cover everything and are not detailed on any one region.
Handbook of Hip Fracture Surgery covers all aspects of this common condition from aetiology to outcome. The text aims to give practical instruction for the trainee orthopaedic surgeon in what is probably the commonest fracture he or she will encounter. Operative details are described in detail with extensive clear illustrations demonstrating these specialised procedures.
Key features include:
*clear advice is given regarding the choice of treatment and potential complications
*hints and tips are given on how to overcome problems encountered during surgery
*emphasis on practice details of surgery and general management to achieve optimum results
*using the fracture table and image intensifier to their best advantage
*suggested reading gives helpful information on more detailed text
*the authors are recognised world-wide as experts on the subject of hip fractures
This book is essential reading for all orthopaedic trainees, senior house officers and registrars involved with the diagnosis, management and surgery of hip fractures.
