Trauma Society of India is a pioneering initiative to promote knowledge in the fields of orthopedics and traumatology. The society has taken a giant leap in its endeavors by launching the first ever standard guidelines for orthopedic clinicians. These guidelines would go a long way in establishing treatment protocols and providing a roadmap to clinicians that guides them in the assessment, decision-making and management of complex fracture situations.
The guidelines will be published in a series of books titled Guidelines in Fracture Management,compiled by eminent Indian and international clinicians.Â They illustrate all possible treatment options and latest management techniques that can be used, with special emphasis on the health scenario in the Asia-Pacific region.
Guidelines in Fracture Management Nonunion in Long Bones I is the first volume of a two-volume set in the series. It focusses on the latest know-how for managing fractures in long bones.
Key features of the volume are:
- Real clinical case studies and surgical techniques with good quality illustrations that make it a ready reference resource for orthopaedic surgeons.
- Coverage of both general and systemic topics, making it a comprehensive 'must have' for post-graduate students.
- Detailed discussion of the pathology behind nonunion and various standard treatment protocols.
- Extensive use of tables, flow charts and line drawings to facilitate easier understanding
