This landmark multimedia reference presents the most current information on surgical treatments of a wide range of injuries, from complex pelvic and spinal trauma to periarticular fractures and knee dislocations. For each injury, the authors guide the reader from the clinical evaluation, through the decision-making process, and to the surgical procedure. Each chapter provides a thorough review of surgical anatomy, streamlined discussion of the classification of the injury, the non-operative treatments available, and the indications for surgical treatment. Concise, step-by-step descriptions of surgical techniques are supplemented by carefully edited videos of surgical procedures on three accompanying DVDs, containing over 16 hours of video footage. Each DVD features narrated videos of entire surgical procedures, with high-quality audio, special effects, and multiple camera angles. The surgical videos provide a window into the operating room--an invaluable resource for residents and general orthopaedic surgeons who do not perform trauma procedures regularly.
