The practical management of patients with fractures is separated by a wide gulf from the scientific study of bone and its response to injury. Science of Fractures succeeds beyond all expectation in bridging the gulf for the physician. The present state of our knowledge in this area is examined and presented clearly and concisely. Not only what can be determined, but also, what cannot be determined by the various special techniques is discussed. A great number of the conclusions drawn from such observations have great practical importance in the management of patients. This is one book which should be read and reread by all physicians treating fractures who want to gain understanding and insight into the complex process by which fractures heal.
