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.

Management of Periprosthetic Joint Infections (PJIs): Management of PJIs discusses periprosthetic joint infection (PJI), a fairly rare occurrence that is nonetheless one of the most serious complications in joint replacement surgery. Intricate interactions between the pathogen, the host, and the implant can result in PJIs which are not only physically devastating for the patient, but also financially crippling for health authorities and insurance companies. Actions taken to minimize the risk of PJIs can be extremely challenging for the orthopaedic community. Consequently, new research, which is detailed in this comprehensive book, is being undertaken to minimize and manage these challenging infections. Provides essential background knowledge on the mechanisms and identification of PJIs Dedicated chapters focus on the complex, but vital eccentricities between PJIs in different areas of the body Contains contributions from a mixture of clinical and academic experts in the field, thus ensuring balanced coverage
