Elements of Orthopaedic Surgery.

Elements of Orthopaedic Surgery. The chief merit of Ross Smith's new book on orthopedic surgery lies in its compactness and its usefulness to the rather large technical and lay organization built around the orthopedic surgeon. Members of such a group require a handy working reference, in order to become familiar with the more common orthopedic conditions and procedures. The author, recognizing these needs, has added an appendix containing a brief résumé of the material on physical therapy, splints and appliances and technic of using plaster of Paris. Of interest also is a chapter on general considerations of fractures and one on the common injuries to nerves, muscles, tendons and joints. The book is too limited in scope to be recommended seriously for medical students or practitioners. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American journal of diseases of children American Medical Association

Abstract

The chief merit of Ross Smith's new book on orthopedic surgery lies in its compactness and its usefulness to the rather large technical and lay organization built around the orthopedic surgeon. Members of such a group require a handy working reference, in order to become familiar with the more common orthopedic conditions and procedures. The author, recognizing these needs, has added an appendix containing a brief résumé of the material on physical therapy, splints and appliances and technic of using plaster of Paris. Of interest also is a chapter on general considerations of fractures and one on the common injuries to nerves, muscles, tendons and joints. The book is too limited in scope to be recommended seriously for medical students or practitioners.
