This book by professors Augusto Sarmiento, M.D and Loren L Latta, PhD, from the United States, is a unique text that addresses in an objective and comprehensive manner the role, the conservative care of long-bone fractures play in an age when technological advances have given the surgical treatment of fractures wide popularity. While great progress has been made in the care of fractures by means of internal fixation, Major advances were also occurring in the conservative approach.
