External fixation is now being used widely to maintain fractures, osteo tomies, and arthrodeses in a desired position during consolidation. Whereas external fixation has been readily accepted in European countries, its use has weathered a rather stormy course in North America, especially in the treatment of fractures. Only recently has external fixation found its rightful place on this continent as well. Many different models are on the market today, and the practitioner is faced with a difficult decision in selecting a model. Should he buy a system where the fracture has to be reduced first, or should he work with a device permitting a reduction after insertion of the pins? To enable surgeons to study the different systems, to discuss their advantages and disadvantages, and to permit them to put their hands on these devices and inspect them personally, the Division of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Ottawa organized an applied basic science course in May 1981, External Fixation of Fractures. During this course, all major systems were pre sented to the participants. As happened during the course "Internal Fixation of Fractures" held two years ago, the rigidity of internal fixation was frequently and intensively debated. Whereas the rigidity of internal fixation cannot be altered during the course of healing, the rigidity of external fixation can be changed. In fact, with progression of union, rods of increasing elasticity can be used.

An excellent book covering the biomechanical and clinical aspects of each ‘element’ of fracture fixation and informs on different effective methods of use in a very concise and lucid manner. Exceedingly valuable for postgraduate students, orthopaedic surgeons and teaching faculties as the book provides the basics and biomechanics of both new and old elements of fracture fixation. The simple sketches and descriptions will help the students and trainees to easily understand the basic and scientific rationales of modern operative fracture treatment. Techniques and implants involved in the management of fracture have been discussed in detail. Provides current knowledge on structure, design, material properties and functions of screws, plates, nails, wires and external fixators. Contains the relevant facts about commonly used implants in a simple and precise language. Essentially deals with metals used in fracture fixation and with the elements in some details. Deals with the structuring of the wreckage of the old bones. Highlights the different instruments used in fracture fixation along with the methods. New to this Edition New chapter on osteoporosis and fracture fixation. New topics included in this edition are: totally novel concepts of screw design and effective plate fixation, methods in osteoporotic bone stabilization, biomechanics of elastic stable intramedullary nail, innovative methods and devices to prevent cutout of sliding hip screw, fresh information on cable fixation and utilization of Kirschner wire, elements of ring fixator, latest materials in fracture treatment and contemporary norms of metal removal.
