Contemporary Surgical Management of Fractures & Complications: Pediatrics (Volume 3)

by Martin J Herman, B David Horn

Contemporary Surgical Management of Fractures and Complications: Pediatrics is the newest addition to the illustrious list of comprehensive pediatric fracture texts dating back almost 100 years. It is a combination of the basic principles of care for the most common injuries seen in children with state-of-the-art techniques and it also instructs in prevention and management of complications. As a first edition, this work addresses the most important diagnoses. The treatment of fractures in children and adolescents has evolved rapidly over the past several years. There is a greater understanding of the epidemiology and natural history of fractures, the cost and economic impact of these injuries on the child and family, and a realization that not all fractures in children heal uneventfully. Efforts are being made to improve the quality and safety, to lower costs and also increasing demands in the time of those who treat injuries in growing individuals, making it difficult to stay up-to date with the current treatment of these injuries. Therefore, there is a need for a current, concise yet thorough text on fractures in children and adolescents. It is a must-have textbook for students, residents, physicians, and surgeons charged with the care of pediatric fractures throughout the world.
