Injuries and Surgical Diseases of the Ischium

JAMA. 1959;169(9):1010. doi:10.1001/jama.1959.03000260108027

This monograph covers all phases of disabilities of the ischium, but is difficult to read and requires great concentration. The anatomy of the ischium and its evolutionary development makes interesting reading. The line drawings, however, particularly those of muscle origin and insertion, are difficult to follow. For the orientation of the reader it would have been much better had this been shown in color. The roentgenographic reproductions throughout the book are not good; mostly they are too dark, and it has been necessary for the author to use arrows to point out what is being described in the text. As a reference book on all disabilities of the ischium this is a worthwhile work but not a ready reference book for the medical student or house staff. It is appreciated that the author has brought into one volume all of the facts about the ischium, and he should be commended
