This newly revised edition updates the information in the original edition published in 1996. Fifty-four leading authorities in musculoskeletal trauma present information reflecting trauma literature and protocol in four key areas of adult trauma: upper extremity; lower extremity; pelvis; and spine. The chapters in each section provide in-depth information on the anatomy, clinical and radiographic assessment, classification and diagnosis of similarly treated injuries. Treatment goals and the latest treatment techniques are reviewed for various subtypes of injuries from single fractures and dislocations to polytrauma. Surgical and nonsurgical management, complications and functional outcomes are discussed in detail. The section on spine trauma has been reorganized and includes new chapters on cervical facet and thoracic spine injuries and low lumbar fractures.
