Acta Orthopaedica, 01-APR-05, Volume 76, Issue 2, Rolf Onnerfalt, Department of Orthopedics, Lund University Hospital, Lund, Sweden -- "The most valuable quality is that for each type of injury, there are very precise and practical instructions about reduction and fixation techniques. This makes the book suitable for preoperative planning. There are also chapters about management of the polytrauma patient and prevention of thrombo-embolic complications. "To make the presentation complete, there are interesting and very informative chapters about stress fractures of the pelvis in patients with osteoporosis, fractures of the acetabulum in the elderly, primary and delayed hip replacement for an acetabular fracture, reconstruction of the metastatic pelvis, and considerably more. To prepare for the future, three-dimensional computer-assisted navigation of fractures is presented. All chapters are followed by a great number of references. There is also a CD-ROM with case presentations of pelvic and acetabular fractures. The book is recommended to most trauma surgeons. Quite a lot of information is for the very specialized surgeon, but in a book like this there is important and useful information for everyone."-Acta Orthopaedica The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (American) , 01-APR-05, Volume 87, Issue 4, Robert J. Brumback, MD, Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore, MD -- "The chapter authors chosen by Drs. Tile, Helfet, and Kellam for the current edition are recognized, international experts in the field of pelvic and acetabular fracture and related subjects. These authors often expand upon the ideas in their chapters, including either the newly recognized or the lesser known effects and controversies that have been associated with these injuries and their treatment. "It is through such expansion that this textbook has matured. New or expanded topics include the implications of pelvic ring injury on the genitourinary and reproductive functions in women, minimally invasive techniques for pelvic and acetabular stabilization, pelvic trauma in the elderly population, primary versus delayed total hip arthroplasty in the treatment of acetabular fractures, and pathologic fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum... "Fractures of the Pelvis and Acetabulum is replete with much new information and worldwide experience. I recommend that it be made available to all orthopaedic surgeons in training. This book will serve as a centerpiece of knowledge for orthopaedists who treat victims of major trauma, and it will remain a superb reference for years to come."-The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (American)Reseña del editor:
The third edition of this definitive work is broadened to include the next generation of trauma specialists. With 50 contributors, new techniques are covered with a focus on minimally invasive procedures. The text is divided into three sections: general aspects, disruption of the pelvic ring, and fractures of the acetabulum. The new features include current percutaneous techniques and an accompanying CD-ROM that features additional cases.
