Edited by two highly experienced specialists, with contributions from an international team of experts
Enhanced by case studies, note boxes and more than 2000 clinical photographs and illustrations
Serves as an essential reference for higher trainees and practicing clinicians in cranio-maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, plastic and reconstructive surgery and allied specialties
This book fills a gap in providing specialist information on orthopaedics and trauma occupational therapy. Its contributors bring together information on the aetiology, surgical input and the occupational therapy intervention appropriate to this client group. It is divided into two main sections, the first being orthopaedics and the second orthopaedic trauma. The first part is further subdivided to cover lower limb surgery, upper limb surgery, spinal conditions, and paediatric orthopaedic conditions. In Part two, principles of fracture management are covered, followed by pelvic and acetabular reconstruction, hand injuries and traumatic amputation.
This book aims to provide orthopedic surgeons with all the information that they will require in order to set up and run a motor skills course that will meet the needs of junior staff in Orthopedic Sports Medicine and help in training better surgeons for the future. The coverage is wide-ranging, from the fundamentals of what it takes to be a sports surgeon through to validation methods that measure teaching effectiveness and the certification of surgical skills at the end of the course. Clear guidance is provided on how to teach concepts of surgical skill and the strategy and practical details of designing a training program, with inclusion of a helpful checklist of do’s and don’ts. Different basic training modalities are described, with a particular focus on the FAST system adopted by the Arthroscopy Association of North America, and the role of simulators in surgical skills training is discussed. The book has been produced in cooperation with ISAKOS and the authors are leading professionals from around the world who offer a truly global and multidisciplinary perspective on the subject.
Computational biomechanics is an emerging research field that seeks to understand the complex biomechanical behaviors of normal and pathological human joints to come up with new methods of orthopedic treatment and rehabilitation.
Computational Biomechanics of the Musculoskeletal System collects the latest research and cutting-edge techniques used in computational biomechanics, focusing on orthopedic and rehabilitation engineering applications. The book covers state-of-the-art techniques and the latest research related to computational biomechanics, in particular finite element analysis and its potential applications in orthopedics and rehabilitation engineering. It offers a glimpse into the exciting potentials for computational modeling in medical research and biomechanical simulation.
The book is organized according to anatomical location?foot and ankle, knee, hip, spine, and head and teeth. Each chapter details the scientific questions/medical problems addressed by modeling, basic anatomy of the body part, computational model development and techniques used, related experimental studies for model setup and validation, and clinical applications. Plenty of useful biomechanical information is provided for a variety of applications, especially for the optimal design of body support devices and prosthetic implants.
This book is an excellent resource for engineering students and young researchers in bioengineering. Clinicians involved in orthopedics and rehabilitation engineering may find this work to be both informative and highly relevant to their clinical practice.

A standard textbook for 25 years, Surgical Exposures in Orthopaedics: The Anatomic Approach is now in its Fourth Edition. Featuring 775 full-color illustrations, this atlas demonstrates the surgical approaches used in orthopaedics and provides a surgeon’s-eye view of the relevant anatomy. Each chapter details the techniques and pitfalls of a surgical approach, gives a clear preview of anatomic landmarks and incisions, and highlights potential dangers of superficial and deep dissection.
The Fourth Edition describes new minimally invasive approaches to the spine, proximal humerus, humeral shaft, distal femur, proximal tibia, and distal tibia. Other highlights include new external fixation approaches for many regions and surgical approaches to the os calcis. New illustrations of the appendicular skeleton are included. New drawings show the important neurovascular structures that need to be protected.

This second edition is a concise guide to clinical assessment and examination in orthopaedics. Beginning with an introduction to history taking and clinical examination, the following chapters discusses the examination of different parts of the body. Each chapter discusses clinical diagnostic tests relevant to the specific region, as well as common conditions, symptoms and signs. With almost 250 illustrations on demonstration techniques and clinical pictures with diagnosis and examination techniques, this new edition sets out the sequence of examination in a more practical, step by step way than the previous edition.
This book is a practical, step-by-step guide to orthopedic examination and diagnosis. The author explains a systematic classification of clinical findings that has proven very useful in diagnosing orthopedic disorders in daily routine. The approach to examination begins with a checklist covering the complete patient history, including subjective descriptions of complaints. This is followed by a stepwise approach to physical examination of the patient and collection of clinical findings. Photographs and illustrations clearly depict the necessary examination techniques. The main symptoms are then determined from the patient history and clinical findings, leading to a diagnosis. An overview of all relevant orthopedic conditions for each region of the body facilitates differential diagnosis and thereby completes the examination findings. This book will be of particular value for new residents in orthopedics and trauma but will also be useful for the experienced physician as a means of refreshing knowledge or as a reference.
OKU 10 gets to the heart of the issues and developments shaping orthopaedics today, with the most relevant findings from every major orthopaedic and subspecialty journal. Every detail in OKU 10 is supported by proven clinical research, filtered through the experience of OKU’s renowned contributors and a rigorous editorial process. The result is a concentrated single source you can count on for continuing professional development and to successfully prepare for first-time certification or Maintenance of Certification (MOC).
New chapters on today’s most relevant topics, including: Patient Safety and Risk Management, New Techniques of Wound Management, Patient-Centered Care: Communication Skills and Cultural Competency, and Practice Management. High quality black and white and full-color images (as available) vividly illustrate the sequence of a procedure and recovery. Annotated references at the end of each chapter provide concise summaries of source material, saving you countless research hours. Levels of evidence provided (as available) for references from the past three years. Color-coded sections and an open, inviting page layout help you easily navigate the book.
