Safety is a paramount factor in orthopaedics, whether the patient is being treated conservatively or surgically. Although vast advances have been made in the instruments, implants, and techniques of orthopaedic surgery, considerable complications continue to occur. Iatrogenic injuries during surgery can cause significant morbidity and even mortality. To avoid neurovascular and other serious complications, the orthopaedic surgeon must have both a deep understanding of anatomy that can be drawn on in the operating room and exceptional technical skills.
The goal of treatment of limb fractures is to restore limb length and anatomic articular surface alignment and rotation, as well as to create adequate fixation for early mobilization of the associated joint with minimal complications. Safe Orthopaedic Surgery includes facts about applied anatomy and surgical techniques aimed at preventing neurovascular complications in various approaches to the specific bones and joints, including the clavicle, shoulder, humerus, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand, spine, hip, femur, knee, leg, and ankle and foot. Both conventional and minimally invasive techniques are considered. The prevention of surgical site infections and current thinking on antibiotic therapy in orthopaedic surgery are also covered.
Organized into 13 chapters with a standard format, up-to-date references, and to-the-point, bulleted presentation for easy review, Safe Orthopaedic Surgery offers vital information on performing operations safely and precisely—the safety principles that are invaluable to every orthopaedic surgeon.
