This book is derived from Ronald McRaes Pocketbook of Orthopaedics and Fractures , a highly successful survival guide for the trainee working in accident and emergency or orthopaedic departments. Retaining the underlying principles of the original editions this comprehensive rewrite and re-presentation provides complete coverage of orthopaedic trauma surgery as relevant to contemporary practice. McRaes Orthopaedic Trauma and Emergency Fracture Management utilises a detailed descriptive and didactic style, alongside a wealth of illustrations all completely redrawn for this book. The first section on general principles in orthopaedic trauma deals with basic terminology and classification, principles of closed and operative management of fractures, infection and complications. The main section provides a regional review of specific injuries, each following a logical sequence describing emergency department and orthopaedic management, and outlining a safe and widely accepted management strategy. Each chapter begins with an overview of the relevant anatomy and principles of the examination of the patient. The book provides a comprehensive overview of both surgical as well as conservative management of orthopaedic trauma injuries. This book is a fully rewritten text based on a classic textbook by Mr Ronald McRae. Now in a larger page size the book contains over 500 illustrations all drawn in two colours for this new edition. Over 250 x-rays accompany the text, many of which are connected with the line drawings to ease interpretation.
