This beautifully illustrated book is the newest addition to Saunders/Elsevier's Operative Techniques series. The editors and all chapter authors are members of the Canadian Orthopaedic Trauma Society, a group that has been at the forefront of prospective multicenter randomized controlled trials, with the Canadian literature accounting for “30% of the level one evidence in orthopaedic trauma published in 2008.” As such, although each chapter is procedure oriented and contains comprehensive descriptions, illustrations, and photographs, the evidence to support the procedures described is also presented.
