Classification and diagnosis in orthopaedic trauma

A hugely illustrated e-book offering concise but accomplished details on fracture category and administration. The textual content has been built in keeping with the necessities of orthopaedic surgeons in education. the 1st part covers common ideas resembling terminology and working with a number of trauma; following sections take the reader systematically via areas of the physique and a number of the attainable fractures, masking prognosis, therapy and therapeutic in each one case.

Atlas of Human Limb Joints

The purpose of this booklet is to give as thoroughly as attainable an outline of the joints of the human limbs, utilizing photos and drawings of anatomical dissections. latest descriptive anatomical debts are usually theoretical and never associated with sensible job of the joints involved; they lack useful demonstra­ tion of the anatomy.

Example text

Because these materials all “breathe” and do not retain water, there are few soft tissue problems such as maceration of skin. Pressure sores are still possible when casts are incorrectly applied, but even this problem occurs less frequently than when cotton padding materials are used. Synthetic orthopedic felt used over bony prominences will do much to reduce pressure sores. In general, the middle and distal phalanges of the middle toes should be left exposed to monitor swelling. Often the cast, once hardened, is cut longitudinally in two places (bivalved) to create two half-shells and to facilitate future cast changes.

The pieces that are too small for internal fixation with bone screws, wires, or Kirschner wires are maneuvered back into position as best as possible with minimal disruption of soft tissue attachments. In most cases the surrounding soft tissue maintains or even improves the position of these pieces as the process of healing begins. Large fragments, with or without soft tissue attachment, are usually fixed in place with lag screws, wires, or Kirschner wires. As a general rule, these fragments aid in restoring the original bone substance and function as an autogenous bone graft.

A, Steinmann pin is placed in the normograde manner and driven distally across the fracture site, and the pin is maneuvered into the medullary canal of the distal fragment. If the IM pin will not be used for final fixation, the pin diameter can be smaller than usual. B, The distal fragment is brought into axial alignment by bone-holding forceps and traction through the proximal tibia while the stifle is flexed 90 degrees.
