This book, designed for medical students, specialist registrars and general practitioners, is written in a clear straightforward style, accompanied by high-quality illustrations. Traumatology and orthopedic diseases are today some of the most frequently encountered pathologies in daily clinical practice; hence, this book seeks to define some of the basic notions that can facilitate the study of this domain for the medical student, provide a preliminary approach to the subject for the specialist registrar and a useful manual for general practitioners that have to deal with this type of patients on a daily basis. The work consists of 12 chapters, beginning with the clinical examination of the patient, followed by a description of the most common pathologies in the field, and finishing with a reference to the use of bone grafts in orthopedic surgery.
