Item description for The Rationale of Operative Fracture Care by T.S. Axelrod Joseph Schatzker...

Since its initial publication in 1987, The Rationale of Operative Fracture Care has enjoyed tremendous popularity. So much so, that the second edition was also published in Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, and Greek. It is a book written by surgeons for surgeons. It explains in clear terms the logical progression of problem-solving in the evolution of a treatment rationale. First identify the problem and then logically outline its various potential solutions. This provides a basis for deciding which is best from a technical perspective and which will lead to the best outcome for the patient. Then choose from the available armamentarium the most suitable surgical technique and implant. All the chapters in the volume have been carefully revised to reflect the state of the art in biology, in biomechanics, in the understanding of the biology of injuries and surgical wounds, and in stabilization systems. The book should continue to serve the surgical community well, both in the most advanced teaching environments and at the forefront of care, in the community hospital practice of surgeons.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Rationale of Operative Fracture Care?

3rd Edition is Available   Nov 20, 2006
Used this second edition in residency and found it very helpful. Third edition was published last year, 2005 and have it on order.
A must buy for trauma and orthopaedic surgeons!  Jul 16, 2000
The authors are the masters of AO school about fracture management. The AO philosophy is well explained in the text. The section on the pelvis and acetabulum fractures are the essence of the whole book. The main disadvantages of this work are about fractures involving spine, wrist, and hand. The section on spinal trauma loses its focus. This book omits the management of the wrist and hand fractures, a sad thing. The management for proximal humerus fracture is quite old fashioned. The AO had developed many new implants recently but barely mentioned in this book. Many proofreading errors will be encoutered but they won't lessen the value of this great work. A great buy for clinician, and junior resident. This book is very easy to read and help yougrasp the essence of the AO phiolosophy in short time. Enjoy!
