    DescriptionThis guide to damage control surgery focuses on the decision-making process for managing polytrauma. Orthopedists, trauma surgeons, and emergency medicine physicians will learn how to effectively coordinate efforts. The book presents an overview of the damage control concept and the epidemiology of polytrauma injuries. Immunological changes, cascade reactions, and patient selection are discussed. Indications for life-saving procedures, damage control for truncal injuries, and damage control for extremities and pelvic fractures are outlined as well. The text also covers vascular injuries and secondary definitive procedures.

    Review quote
    From the reviews: `This unique textbook, with 24 chapters and 58 authors, is both a technical manual and a clear illustration of the cultural challenges faced during a time of ! radical transformation, especially by surgeons. ! contains some excellent insights and clearly portrays the role of the surgeon throughout the injured patient's journey, from resuscitation to reconstruction. ! integrates damage control philosophy into a practical guide for managing the most severely injured patients. ! a valuable resource for any clinicians, especially surgeons, involved in trauma care.` (Russell L. Gruen, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 306 (5), August, 2011)
    Back cover copy
    Damage control surgery was developed as a management technique for severely injured patients whose immune systems are too weak to mount an adequate response to multiple extended procedures. The common goal of treating life-threatening conditions first, then treating major pelvic and extremity fractures requires cooperation between all major subspecialties involved in the care of polytrauma patients. The editors of this book have focused on approaching damage control surgery logically and systematically by dividing treatment into phases. Other vital topics discussed include patient selection, management of vascular injuries, and the timing of secondary definitive procedures. Damage Control Management in the Polytrauma Patient is an unparalleled resource for any clinician who must weigh life-saving operations against limb-threatening conditions.
