Children's Upper and Lower Limb Fractures Paperback
Edited by Michael K. D. Benson, Klaus Parsch, Malcolm Macnicol, John Fixsen
This book starts appropriately in considering the principles which should govern our care of the injured child and the background factors which influence fracture epidemiology.
Knowing how to manage the multiply injured child and recognizing the one who has been non-accidentally injured are essential skills in our specialty.
Injuries to the growth plate are not always easy to recognize and manage but, if we fail to do so, the long-term consequences may be serious.
Succeeding chapters describe childhood injuries and fractures regionally.
Conservative fracture management has not been forgotten amidst the plethora of newer methods of surgical fixation.
