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.
