Paperback / softback
Standards for the Management of Open Fractures provides an evidence-based approach for the management of open fractures, focussing on lower limb injuries.
It builds on and expands the NICE Guidelines to provide a practical approach with supporting evidence.
The new edition has been extensively updated and expanded to include key aspects of management, ranging from setting up an orthoplastic service, through to dealing with the bone and soft tissue injures, complications such as infection, and patient rehabilitation and psychological care. The book is primarily aimed at trainee plastic, orthopaedic and trauma surgeons (particularly for expanding knowledge and examination revision) but would also appeal to established surgeons to improve patient care. Standards for the Management of Open Fractures is an open access title.
It is available to read and download as a free PDF version on Oxford Medicine Online.
