"This third edition of Fracture Management For Primary Care, published 8 years after the second, has been significantly enhanced while maintaining its basic framework. With the continuing need for primary care physicians to assume the central role in the contemporary and anticipated models of health care delivery, this book is an excellent and timely addition. ... The stated aim of Fracture Management for Primary Care is 'to produce a practical user-friendly book that helps clinicians manage their patients who have fractures'. This 384-page book is edited by experienced family physicians, with contributions from 8 other family physicians. ...The description in the opening chapter of general principles of fracture care provides a well-thought-out, well-organized basic framework to apply to care of the specific fractures described in the subsequent chapters. The guidelines for when to refer a patient to an orthopedic surgeon are explicitly presented. Each chapter is organized in a consistent manner. ... (This) overall organization and consistency is perhaps the most useful feature in a book that lends itself to quick, practical, readable, and easy access in day-to-day practice. The book is full of radiographic images and line drawings related to almost all of the fractures described. ... Although the book is exceedingly practical and concise, it provides sufficient coverage of the breadth of the fractures and related problems seen in primary care. In this context, the breadth and depth of topics covered are exemplified by reviews regarding epiphyseal fractures, pediatric scaphoid fractures, distal clavicular fractures, scapular fractures, spine fractures, nontraumatic osteoporotic fractures, complex regional pain syndrome, and facial and skull fractures." -Dilip R.
