Harborview Illustrated Tips and Tricks in Fracture Surgery


Product Description
Product Details


"The purpose is to present a step-by-step description of adult fracture surgery with tips and tricks practiced by the Harborview Medical Center and its alumni trauma fellows over a 40-year period.

Eleven sections cover most anatomical sites, excluding the spine, in great technical detail. The concise bullet format is used effectively to get specific points across. Separate emphasis is placed on patient positioning, limb alignment, open fracture management, compartment syndrome, external fixation and distraction techniques, and so on. Case examples are supported by intraoperative photographs, radiographs, and illustrations that dominate every chapter. Each chapter is divided into the main headings of sterile instrument/equipment, patient positioning, surgical approach, and tips. The handling of postoperative complications for some injuries is discussed, such as non-unions of femoral neck fractures. One of the several useful tips is shown in figure 3-3: a photograph of a limb debridement pan for open extremity wounds is of superior design. Not specifically covered in this book are indications and contradictions for surgery; nonoperative vs. operative choices.

The Harborview Orthopaedic Trauma group and its alumni of fellowship-trained trauma surgeons have undertaken this intense work with great affection and pride. The authors and their scores of alumni traumatologists have elevated the standard of orthopedic trauma management to levels not seen in the past to the benefit of patients. This book is highly recommended to all orthopedic trauma surgeons and their trainees. Also, all medical libraries are strongly advised to acquire this book."
