This book is a complete guide to fundamental orthopaedics for surgeons and trainees.
Divided into eight sections, the text begins with detailed explanations of the ward round (casts, dressings, slings), instruments and implants, radiographs, and orthosis and prosthesis.
The following sections discuss bones and joints, surgical procedures, and the operation theatre, concluding with a brief history of orthopaedics.
The section on surgical procedures is presented in a question and answer format, highlighting questions commonly asked by examiners on ward rounds, along with their appropriate answers.
This comprehensive manual is enhanced by clinical photographs, illustrations and tables, and includes `key points' boxes for quick revision.
