This compact pocketbook provides orthopaedic surgeons in training with concise and relevant core knowledge on all aspects of children’s fractures. Content includes the common fractures that affect children and “Red flags”, such as the key management points of potentially serious injuries and complications. This book would also be useful to pediatricians and Accident & Emergency department doctors working in busy clinics that need a quick reference guide and with highlighted “red flags” of children’s fractures.
It is vital that anyone training in orthopaedics is well versed in the art and practice of orthopaedic trauma. Paediatric orthopaedic trauma presents its own unique challenges, from the assessment of the injured child (and management of the parents and extended family) through to intervention with minimal complication and follow-up for long-term complications. The aim of this book is to cover all the major aspects of paediatric orthopaedic trauma and to ease the passage through examinations, such as the FRCS(Orth), and busy on-calls, where common children's fractures are frequently encountered.
