The elbow is one of the more complex joints. Books have been written about the shoulder, the hip, and the spine, but this appears to be the first complete text concerned with the injuries and diseases of the elbow. Twenty-one of the 24 chapters are concerned with the anatomy of the elbow region, pathology of fractures of the elbow, and traumatic lesions such as fractures and dislocations. The final three chapters deal with loose bodies, bursitis, arthritis, and operations on the elbow joint. This useful book is well organized, well written, and well illustrated. Many of the illustrations are line drawings. Orthopedic surgeons and others who are interested in trauma will wish to add this monograph to their library.
