Trauma Society of India is a pioneering initiative to promote knowledge in the fields of orthopedics and traumatology. The society took a giant leap in its endeavors by launching the first ever standard guidelines for orthopedic clinicians in 2014. These guidelines are meant to establish treatment protocols and provide a roadmap to clinicians for the assessment, decision-making and management of complex fracture situations. The guidelines are being published in a series of books titled Guidelines in Fracture Management, compiled by eminent Indian and international clinicians. 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-Fractures around the Foot and Ankle covers all aspects of fractures around the ankle and the hind foot region and focuses on standardization of their treatment protocols. It also deals with complex injuries associated with these fractures.
Key features of the volume are:
- A comprehensive section on ankle fractures covering every detail of malleolar fractures and the latest update on syndesmotic injuries.
- A section on tibial pilon that covers all aspects of tibial pilon fractures, including the role of external fixators ORIF.
- A dedicated section on hind foot injuries which discusses calcaneus and talus injuries.Fractures of the neck, body and talar process have also been covered separately, complete with their mechanism, complications, and treatment protocols.
