This book is a practical, step-by-step guide to the management of orthopaedic fractures. In an aging population and with greater participation in contact sports, the incidence of fractures is on the increase, and conversely the amount of hands-on experience that orthopaedic trainees receive is declining. The book provides a detailed manual of the management of orthopaedic trauma.
It includes indications for surgery, initial management and theatre set-up and equipment, step-by-step technique with cadaveric photographs showing the surgical approaches, and complications and their avoidance. Pre- and post-operative radiological images are also included as well as 'tips and tricks of the trade' to ensure a successful outcome.
