This volume is devoted exclusively to children's orthopedics and reflects the current thinking in Germany about the deformities, their prevention and correction.
Congenital clubfoot and dislocated hip are emphasized. The author has carefully selected his illustration material to emphasize the important concepts of pathogenesis, radiology, and clinical findings in these conditions.
The orthopedic problems of the child with poliomyelitis and the cerebral spastic are not emphasized.
The author emphasizes only those fractures which produce deformity.
The treatment of the various conditions is not given in detail, but the principles of treatment for each condition are ably stated. It is a pleasure to recommend highly this German textbook of children's orthopedics to the readers of this Journal.
