Contemporary Surgical Management of Fractures & Complications (2 Volumes)

by Asif Ilyas, Saqib Rehman

This book, Contemporary Surgical Management Of Fractures & Complications, deals with surgical management. Patients can present at unpredictable times of the day, requiring urgent surgery by a surgeon who may be inexperienced in the necessary fracture management. Fracture surgery frequently utilizes bacteria-harboring implants which are placed in damaged soft tissue beds potentially inviting infections. There are many outstanding textbooks which go to great lengths to describe proper techniques of fracture management. Nevertheless, complications will happen and correcting them can represent a significant challenge. Despite all the excellent references available to orthopaedic surgeons, it became apparent to us that there are few modern texts that actually focus on the management of complications at length. The reader will find a consistent format in each chapter emphasizing the surgical approaches, techniques of specific fracture fixation, as well as practical tips and “pitfalls”. Complications and their management are to be found in each chapter. The chapters are well illustrated sprinkled throughout with excellent clinical examples.
