One of the most extensive fracture classification studies ever compiled, Clinical Epidemiology of Orthopedic Trauma comprehensively explores the distribution of fracture patterns in clinical practice. This second edition features an in-depth review of a much larger sample size in a nationwide study on fracture incidence. All fractures are classified according to the widely accepted AO/OTA system for immediate recognition and analysis. Not only will readers get a full statistical overview of fracture location, segment, and type, but they will also learn key demographic data such as age, gender, incidence rate, and more.

Special Features:

  • All new 349,935 fractures in over 371,822 additional patients than in the first edition
  • More than 2,000 anatomic diagrams, illustrations, MRI and CT images, and X-rays that clearly demonstrate how the AO/OTA fracture classification and coding system works
  • Easy-to-follow, standardized chapters that cover accepted classifications and nomenclature, anatomy, mechanisms of injury, epidemiological features, and take-home messages on diagnosis and treatment for each bone and segment
  • Multicolored pie charts and bar graphs that make statistical information accessible and user-friendly
  • Numerous case examples reflecting the author's depth and breadth of experience
In addition to being a core reference for orthopedic residents and surgeons, Clinical Epidemiology of Orthopedic Trauma, Second Edition, is an indispensable reference for academic researchers; medical schools, libraries, and hospitals; and clinicians reviewing data for analysis or publication. It offers a wealth of information that will impact treatment planning, future allocation of resources in trauma care, and initiatives in preventive medicine.
