This book combines the basic principles of care for the most common injuries seen in children with state-of-the-art techniques. Uniquely, this text stresses not only the best practices for care of fractures primarily but also instructs in prevention and management of complications. As a first edition, this work addresses the most important diagnoses. For the future, it is our hope to develop this work into a comprehensive resource that will be a must-have textbook for students, residents, physicians, and surgeons charged with the care of pediatric fractures throughout the world.

s fractures and their complications.


s of treatment for common trauma in children with state-of-art methods that focus on complication prevention and management.


The primary audience is pediatric orthopedic surgeons, fellows, and orthopedic residents in training. General orthopedic surgeons caring for children and adolescents will find this work helpful. The editors are pediatric orthopedic surgeons from the Philadelphia area.


The presentation is straightforward. The first 11 chapters are organized by anatomical location of the musculoskeletal system, while the last chapter covers neglected fractures and dislocations. Each chapter uses a businesslike approach to the management of an injury. A brief introduction is followed by appropriate diagnostic workup followed by current classification. Nonsurgical and surgical management techniques are addressed for each. Outcome studies and complications round off each chapter. The section on hand and wrist fractures is well done and easy to follow. Two chapters focus on fractures around the elbow, but the description of the technique for reducing a supracondylar fracture is made unclear by such statements as "pronation or supination of the forearm may aid in maintaining the reduction..." It is not clear if such advice is based on scientific data supporting either the periosteal or bony hinge theories. The references are current and the figures and illustrations are sufficient and of good quality. It is interesting to note that this book is able to cover most common fractures adequately in 298 pages, whereas Rockwood and Wilkins' Fractures in Children 7th edition, Beaty and Kasser (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009), is over 1,000 pages.


This book should find a seat at the already crowded table if it continues to stress and develop aspects of fracture complication management and prevention in each chapter. Pediatric orthopedic surgeons and their trainees are encouraged to take a good look at this useful new book.
