New York/Stuttgart – 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. It is based on an in-depth review of more than 65,000 fractures in 60,000 patients at a leading international trauma center. 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.
“A masterful combination of classification and fracture care. Practical, well-illustrated and a great companion to orthopedic surgeons and trainees." - Wade Smith, MD, FACS, Chief of Orthopedic Trauma and Director of Orthopedic Surgery, Geisinger Health Systems, Danville, Pennsylvania, USA
In addition to being a core reference for orthopedic surgeons, “Clinical Epidemiology of Orthopedic Trauma” 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.
