Intended primarily for undergraduate students, this updated and revised edition may also be useful for those studying for higher examinations in surgery, for general practitioners and physiotherapists and orthopaedic nurses. For the undergraduate there are sections on methods of clinical examination of the various joints and related regions of the body; and the postgraduate is served by the inclusion in many places of additional detail which, because it is not essential for the qualifying examinations, is therefore optional reading for the undergraduate student. The anatomical nomenclature used in the book conforms to that recommended by the International Anatomical Nomenclature Committee and approved at the Eighth International Congress of Anatomists at Wiesbaden in 1965. The recommended method of recording and expressing joint movement conforms to that laid down by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in the booklet "Joint Motion" and approved by most of the Orthopaedic Associations of the English-speaking world. An ELBS/LPBB edition is available.
