Written by the world's foremost trauma surgeons, this volume of our Orthopaedic Surgery Essentials Series presents all the information residents need during trauma surgery rotation or service. It can easily be read cover to cover during a rotation or used for quick reference before a patient workup or operation. The user-friendly, visually stimulating format features ample illustrations, bulleted lists, boxes, and tables. Coverage begins with brief chapters on fracture epidemiology and healing and proceeds to fracture types and injuries at each anatomic site. A section describes the various surgical and nonsurgical techniques used in fracture management. Concluding chapters discuss postoperative complications.
