The 5th edition of this now classic text draws on the strength of previous editions and now includes reference to the latest surgical techniques available in Europe, Australia and the USA. Emphasis remains on the continually expanding use of fixation techniques although conservative treatment options remain an integral part of the text. The artwork programme - which so characterises the appeal and success of previous editions - has been fully updated although its clarity remains as strong as ever and the logical sequence of illustrations with their succinct captions affords a rewarding and effective way to learn. Suitable for medical students, junior doctors, orthopaedic trainees, A&E staff, physiotherapists and the rehabilitation team - this book should form part of the essential library of any healthcare professional involved with the management and care of fracture patients. Ronald McRae, (retired orthopaedic surgeon) - Max Esser, Othopaedic Surgeon, Cabrini Medical Centre, Victoria, Australia. Reviews Classic student text on practical fracture treatment… the authors have again managed to successfully describe the practical management of many of the common acute orthopaedic injuries, whether isolated injuries or within the context of polytrauma… provides a useful, rapid and value-for-money reference to initial fracture management. (Medical Journal of Australia, 2003, reviewing 4th ed) I have long been a fan of this book, and I treat my dog-eared well-thumbed 3rd edition as a friend that has served me well during both SHO placement and the early part of Registrar training. Most emergency departments have at least two copies on their shelves to act as an initial reference book prior to referring patients to the on-call team. (SpR, Tyne & Wear, UK) Concise, yet comprehensive and provides an excellent reference for the initial management of fractures … an outstanding reference for medical students, as well as residents and physicians (3rd year resident, South Carolina, USA) An excellent ‘shop-floor' book for orthopaedic and emergency department senior house officers. I have no hesitation in recommending it and every emergency department should have at least one copy readily available.
