Product description

Here is the two-volume second edition of the standard reference for the fundamental AO principles and state-of-the-art surgical techniques for fracture management. Volume 1 focuses on the basic knowledge and the principles of fracture management, covering biomechanics, tools for preoperative planning, soft-tissue management, different methods of reduction and fixation, and implants. This volume also addresses new issues pertaining to internal/external fixation, damage-control surgery, minimally invasive surgery, and biotechnology. Volume 2 presents the management of specific fractures in different anatomic areas. A separate chapter is devoted to each area to discuss the assessment of injuries, surgical anatomy, preoperative planning, surgical treatment, and postoperative care. The authors also highlight common pitfalls and complications. Expanded in the new two-volume edition is the collection of high-quality illustrations--with more than 2,000 in total--that vividly demonstrate key concepts of management. The accompanying DVD provides the entire text from the books and instructional AO teaching videos that demonstrate techniques and reinforce important teaching points. Electronic bookmarks and keyword search functions simplify navigation of the DVD. Links to abstracts and references on the Internet enable the user to fully utilize the wealth of information provided in this multimedia resource. AO Principles of Fracture Management is an essential resource for orthopaedists, trauma surgeons, and residents in these specialties.
