Essential Orthopaedics

by J Maheshwari, Vikram A Mhaskar

The aim of this book is to focus on the essential orthopaedics. Orthopaedics is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. The book is primarily addressed to undergraduates and those preparing for the postgraduate entrance tests. This book consists of 43 chapters. Most chapters begin with a brief review of the relevant anatomy. While discussing treatment of a condition, a brief mention of principles is made first, followed by various methods and their indications. The book has three additional chapters. These are "Approach to a Patient with Limb Injury", "Approach to a Patient with Back Pain", and "Recent Advances in Treatment of Fractures". The first two present a practical approach to handling these frequently encountered emergencies, and the third chapter updates the reader with the latest in this rapidly developing field. Due emphasis has been given to aspects of rehabilitation, considering the recent recommendations of Medical Council of India for including 'rehabilitation' in undergraduate curriculum. Simple line diagrams have been used to supplement the text. Tables have been used liberally. These serve two purposes: Firstly, they present the text matter in a concentrated form and allow review at a glance. Secondly, they permit quick and easily understandable comparison between related conditions. Necessary information on instruments and implants commonly used in orthopaedics has been provided as an appendix.
