This landmark multimedia reference presents the most current information on surgical treatments of a wide range of injuries, from complex pelvic and spinal trauma to periarticular fractures and knee dislocations. For each injury, the authors guide the reader from the clinical evaluation, through the decision-making process, and to the surgical procedure. Each chapter provides a thorough review of surgical anatomy, streamlined discussion of the classification of the injury, the non-operative treatments available, and the indications for surgical treatment. Concise, step-by-step descriptions of surgical techniques are supplemented by carefully edited videos of surgical procedures on four accompanying DVDs, containing over 18 hours of video footage.

Highlights of the book:

  • "Tips and Tricks" summarize key points of each
    procedure for rapid review in preparation for surgery

  • "Exam Pearls" describe injuries, incidence,
    indications for surgery, and possible complications and are ideal for board

  • More than 1,400 photographs, radiographs, and
    drawings illustrate techniques

  • "New Techniques" sections cover the latest
    innovations for surgical management

  • A separate table of contents for the four DVDs and shaded text boxes throughout the book enable convenient book-to-video reference

Highlights of the DVDs:

  • Narrated videos of entire surgical procedures provide
    a window into the operating room—an invaluable resource for residents and
    general orthopedic surgeons who do not perform trauma procedures regularly

  • Coverage of state-of-the-art techniques such as
    locked plating, minimally invasive fracture fixation, advanced intramedullary
    nailing strategies, staged reconstruction of periarticular fractures, new
    techniques for hip hemiarthroplasty, surgical management of knee dislocation,
    including double bundle ACL and PCL knee reconstruction, and the use of
    temporary postoperative hinged external fixation

  • Each DVD has been professionally produced and features high-quality audio, special effects, and multiple camera angles for each procedure

Authoritative and comprehensive in its scope, this landmark text will be an invaluable asset in libraries of all orthopedic surgeons, residents, or specialists seeking a comprehensive and didactic reference.
