One of the most extensive fracture classification studies ever compiled, Clinical Epidemiology of Orthopaedic 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.

- 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
