Synopsis

Rockwood and Wilkins' Fractures in Children Text Plus Integrated Content Website (Rockwood, Green, and Wilkins' Fractures) by James H. Beaty

The thoroughly revised, updated Seventh Edition of Rockwood and Wilkins' Fractures in Children offers a complete print and multimedia package: the established gold-standard reference on pediatric fractures and access to an integrated content website. The world's foremost authorities provide comprehensive coverage of all bone and joint injuries seen in children. The contributors present the historical background, diagnosis, and pathological anatomy of each injury. They thoroughly discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the various alternative methods for treating each injury. Finally, each author presents a step-by-step description of his or her preferred method of treatment. This edition has a more international group of contributors. More tips and pearls have been added to the authors' preferred method presentations, and coverage of complications has been expanded. New chapters cover casting, remodeling and what is unique about children's fractures; principles of physical examination of children with fractures; and treacherous children's fractures. A companion website contains the fully searchable text, an image bank, and videos of the ten most difficult procedures.

Reviews

Overall, the seventh edition of Rockwood and Green's Fractures in Adults /Rockwood and Wilkins
Fractures in Children is an outstanding body of work presenting the most comprehensive and current treatment of musculoskeletal trauma possible. I turned to it repeatedly during my review and found the information illuminating and useful on each occasion. In addition to being valuable for specific clinical questions, many of the chapters are so well written they make for very enjoyable general reading as well. Anyone involved in the care of these injuries, from medical students and residents to seasoned practitioners, could benefit from the thorough discussion of the available evidence and solid expert opinion, using these items as an excellent starting point for supplementary reading in the literature. Furthermore, given the approach of staying up to date, enlisting expert authors and editors, and continuing to present an international perspective, this resource is poised to continue to be a benchmark reference in the care of adults and children with orthopedic or trauma injuries John L.
