The sixth edition of Rockwood and Green's Fractures in Adults continues to serve as the preeminent resource for review and update of fracture care for the resident in training, practicing orthopedic surgeon, and traumatologist.
The two volumes are organized into four sections: “General Principles,” “Upper Extremity,” “Spine,” and “Lower Extremity.” Each section is comprehensive and encompasses every conceivable aspect of fracture care, including chapters dedicated to such timely topics as outcome studies in trauma, computer-aided orthopedic surgery, war wounds, and management of the multiply injured patient. Significant changes include five new chapters, numerous new contributing authors representing various subspecialties (many internationally based and many of whom have published on their topics), and two accompanying CD-ROMs featuring surgical approaches.
