- We can order this
Comprehensive and generously illustrated, this text highlights both general principles and specific strategies for managing the spectrum of pediatric lower limb deformities. It is divided thematically into five sections, though any chapter can stand on its own to guide the clinician in specific situations. Part I covers general principles and techniques, including etiology, clinical evaluation, imaging as well as different surgical methods. Part II, covering related concepts and management options, discusses soft tissue contractures, amputations and working in austere and resource-challenged settings. Underlying conditions comprise part III - specific metabolic, neuromuscular and tumor-related conditions, along with arthrogryposis, Osteogenesis Imperfecta and various skeletal dysplasias. Part IV presents congenital and developmental disorders, such as congenital femoral deficiency, hemimelias, tibial pseudoarthrosis and Blount disease, while part V rounds out the book with chapters on sequelae related to different etiologies and their treatment. Covering all aspects of the management of pediatric lower limb deformities and written by renowned experts in the field, this textbook will be an invaluable resource for orthopedic surgeons and trainees worldwide.
