Item description for Orthopedic Traumatology - A Resident's Guide by David Ip...
There has been very rapid development in computing in recent years and this is now a general trend in the field of orthopedics. Orthopedic trauma is no exception, as there is much enthusiasm surrounding the use of surgical navigation in musculoskeletal trauma. In light of these developments, the successful first edition of this book has been revised and updated. A lot of new information has been added to the original chapter on CAOS (computer-aided orthopedic surgery). Also, as the WHO has published new guidelines on osteoporosis management, together with the many conceptual changes in this area, adding a chapter on osteoporosis is both timely and appropriate. A chapter on hip fracture rehabilitation has also become necessary, not only because it echoes the teachings of the chapter on osteoporosis, but also because of the projected exponential increase in the occurrence of this fracture by the year 2050.

Reviews - What do customers think about Orthopedic Traumatology - A Resident's Guide?
Excellent Dec 9, 2006
Liked it for it provides an updated bird`s eye view of the ever-changing subject of modern trauma. Topics not often touched adequately in thick texts like high-energy trauma are also covered. Seems high value for money.
Up to Date and 'In-a-nutshell' Nice Book Oct 17, 2006
I do front line work, got confused by the changing AO and other principles and the forever changing implants. I like the Up-to-date and 'In-a nutshell' type of book like this that high-light key points rather than the boring huge texts used by me only as references
Good Buy Apr 3, 2006
Just bought this book on line & already loving it, it clarifies many things I don't know about trauma, just like concepts of relative stability, gap healing, mechanism of tensioned wires, science of fusion cages, high energy trauma. Real fun & easy to read.
