About this book


Orthofix External Fixation in Trauma and Orthopaedics provides the scientific basis behind the success of the Orthofix system of external fixators, which are now widely used throughout the world. These devices are used in the treatment of serious fractures, limb lengthening and limb reconstruction.
This book covers comprehensively the wide range of scenarios in which such devices can be used. Each topic is dealt with by the appropriate international expert in the field.
Orthofix External Fixation in Trauma and Orthopaedics should be read by all those involved in elective or traumatic orthopaedics.
