Quick Overview
The book is intended to address the obvious need for a concise text, which exists with regard to pediatric osteoarticular infections. Osteoarticular infection is an ever-evolving field. However, developments in the field of pediatric osteoarticular infections have lagged behind advancements in other areas of orthopedics, due to a variety of reasons.
The book is designed to be used either as a learning text or as a practical textbook in the clinical setting. The various osteoarticular infections in children and issues pertaining to their etiopathogenesis, clinical features, investigations and management options have been dealt with in systematic chapters. The chapters are organized in a logical sequence which can even be used for a quick referencing of topics.
DOODY'S BOOK REVIEW
REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION

Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)

Description

This book thoroughly covers the treatment of bone and joint infections in children.

Purpose

The purpose is to present a current and concise work that deals with the etiology, research, clinical picture, and basic and advanced management of pediatric skeletal infections.

Audience

The audience includes a range of medical personnel caring for children with skeletal infections, such as orthopedic surgeons, pediatricians, and infectious disease specialists, as well as trainees in these fields. The editors and the contributors are orthopedic surgeons and pediatricians primarily from Delhi, India.

Features

The 15 chapters cover epidemiology, lab diagnosis, and the conservative and surgical treatment of osteomyelitis and joint infections. Chronic osteomyelitis and sequelae of septic hip and related reconstruction procedures are discussed. Tuberculosis of the spine and hip is an important part of this book. Atypical osteomyelitis, hand infections, and advances and research in osteoarticular infections are reviewed in some detail. Some of the hip reconstructive procedures for a destroyed joint involve creating femoral deformities, which may preclude total joint replacement surgery. Most chapters contain adequate tables and good quality color photographs and drawings. The references are both sufficient and current.

Assessment

This book is unique in its focus on bone and joint infections in children. The true highlight of this work is the authors' vast local experience with skeletal tuberculosis and chronic osteomyelitis. Although the India-based authors may not be household names in the U.S., it is clear that they know their stuff. The inclusion of western literature and practices is thorough and complementary to the authors' treatment approaches. I can fully recommend this important book to all physicians and trainees involved in the care of children with osteoarticular infections.
