Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Surgical orthopedic procedures such as hip replacements, arthroscopy or knee replacements are surrounded by pre- and post-operative complications, and there are varying different methods for the procedures themselves. This book, for the first time, brings together the best evidence for treatments as well as any complications. Not only does it cover the evidence base for orthopedic surgery, but also orthopedic conditions requiring medical treatment, and pediatric orthopedics. Using the approved EBM methodology, and edited by teachers of evidence-based medicine, this is a genuine EBM textbook for all orthopedic specialists and trainees.

Book News Annotation:

This handbook collects critical evidence in orthopedics that practitioners can consult and reference rather than conducting the basic research themselves. It covers the methodology of evidence-based orthopedics, orthopedic medicine, joint reconstruction, trauma, the adult spine, sports medicine, wrist and hand surgery, and orthopedic oncology. Among specific topics are highly cross-linked polyethylene in total hip arthroplasty, humeral shaft fractures, whiplash, snapping hip, and allograft versus megaprosthesis in surgery for bone sarcoma.
