Severe Injuries to the Limbs: Staged Treatment

JAMA. 2008;299(24):2901-2902. doi:10.1001/jama.299.24.2901

The 3 well-recognized and well-published authors of this text are experts in their field and draw from an extensive and impressive experience spanning 40 years in the treatment of the most severe and complex extremity injuries. Geopolitical circumstances at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, Israel, have required the authors to treat mass casualties of terrorism and warfare at a large tertiary referral center. This book presents a comprehensive and well-illustrated work on initial evaluation, staged reconstructive efforts, and the postoperative rehabilitation of critically injured patients with high-energy extremity injuries by innovative use of external fixation.
