Skeletal Injury in the Child: Edition 3

Free sample

It is remarkable that Dr. Ogden has created a third edition of Skeletal Injury in the Child. It seems just a short time since the publication of the ?rst (1982) and second (1990) editions. The previous texts have been so comprehensive that it is dif?cult to imagine he could add more information to the existing chapters and create additional new chapters. One of the new chapters concerns the multiply-injured child, who presents an increasing problem in management. More children are surviving because of modern methods of emergency transportation and resuscitation. As a con- quence, a signi?cant number with extensive head and thoracoabdominal injuries are presenting to the emergency room, posing dif?cult problems in the coor- nation of care and timing of selective aspects of management. Survival rates are improving. Most of these children have concomitant musculoskeletal injury, which must be effectively treated because of the survival potential. There is a new chapter on abnormal healing and growth plate disruption, with particular emphasis on bony bridge resection. Our ability to recognize epiphyseal bars has greatly improved. Now, we can better anticipate and recognize growth arrest before it becomes extensive. Dr. Ogden has provided many helpful sugg- tions on how best to document and approach these physeal injury complications.

After the publication of the AO book Technique of Internal Fixation of Fractures (Miiller, Allgower and Willenegger, Springer-Verlag, 1965), the authors decided after considerable discussion amongst themselves and other members of the Swiss AO that the next edition would appear in three volumes. In 1969, the first volume was published (the English edition, Manual of Internal Fixation, appeared in 1970). This was a manual of surgical technique which discussed implants and instruments and in which the problems of internal fixation were presented schematically without radio logical illustrations. The second volume was to be a treatise on the biomechanical basis of internal fixation as elucidated by the work done in the laboratory for experi mental surgery in Davos. The third volume was planned as the culminating effort based upon the first two volumes, treating the problems of specific fractures and richly illustrated with clinical and radiological examples. It was also to discuss results of treatment, comparing the results obtained with the AO method with other methods. The second and third volumes were never published. The second edition of the AO Manual appeared in 1977. It dealt in greater detail with the problems discussed in the first edition, although it still lacked clinical exam ples and any discussion of indications for surgery. Like the first edition, it was trans lated into many languages and was well received. Finally, after 22 years, the much discussed and much needed third volume has appeared.
