This highly illustrated textbook is an essential guide for surgeons in training, providing step-by-step approaches to performing surgical procedures. Practical guidance is given on patient positioning, approach and reduction techniques, which implant to insert, protocols for postoperative mobilisation, possible complications, when the patient should be seen in the outpatient clinic, and whether the implant should be removed. This second edition has been extensively expanded and revised. Additional chapters address fractures of the scapula, fractures around the elbow, around the foot and minimal invasive plate osteosynthesis procedures. All of the other chapters have been expanded and revised to comprehensively cover the range of common trauma procedures performed by surgeons in training. Written by experts in orthopaedics and trauma, the book includes numerous intraoperative colour photographs to help readers visualise the techniques described. This will be an invaluable resource for all surgical trainees in orthopaedics, trauma, and general disciplines. Peter V.
