The contributors, selected for their expertise and knowledge of the subject, provide the reader with practical advice on the management of the commonly occurring fractures in the dog, and cat. The text is lavishly illustrated with full-color illustrations, intraoperative pictures and radiographs. A comprehensive description of each procedure is complemented by animations and sequences from AO Teaching Videos on a DVD-ROM.
In a departure from previous AO textbooks, chapters provide advice on preoperative preparation, perioperative pain control, anesthesia, radiography, postoperative care, and rehabilitation.
New concepts have been embraced and considerably more emphasis is placed on alternative methods of fixation to bone plating. The indications for biological fracture fixation and anatomical reconstruction are addressed, with illustrated examples of both techniques appearing throughout the text.
The majority of this textbook is dedicated to detailing the techniques available for the repair of fractures which it does admirably. ...The illustrations, which range from simple line drawings to photographs and algorithms, are excellent. When you combine these visual aids with concise and accurate descriptions, the result is a very useful guide for the beginner orthopaedic surgeon whilst at the same time acting as a reference tool for the more experienced operator. The information given on complications, corrective osteotomies and arthrodesis is also very well presented and useful. Bold print sentences and highlighted comments in the page margins...may be useful for students doing last minute preparation for an examination. --Veterinary and Comparative Orthopaedics and Traumatology
