Emergency care of pediatric orthopedic surgical emergencies is often provided by orthopedic surgeons who primarily treat adults. Pediatric Orthopedic Surgical Emergencies is designed to provide the essential information needed to safely evaluate and treat the most common surgical emergencies in pediatric orthopedic surgery. Each emergency scenario includes the keys to patient evaluation, operative considerations, and expected complications. Each contributor provides technical pearls and tips based on their preferences and clinical experience in this area. Topics covered run the gamut from trauma (including the mangled extremity and compartment syndrome) to individual body regions (the spine, upper and lower extremities) to infection and other conditions. Pediatric Orthopedic Surgical Emergencies is a convenient, illustrated guide to procedures that can be challenging to those physicians who treat pediatric patients infrequently.

From the book reviews:

"This is a concise book about the etiology, management, and orthopaedic surgery of trauma and polytrauma children suffering major injuries. The approach to management is outlined with instrumentation used to stabilize pelvic, limb, and neck fractures looking at complex cases as well as more routine ones. I recommend this book to all orthopedic surgeons and residents. SCIWORA injuries and C spine instability are well addressed in their respective age groups." (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, October, 2014)

"This is a compact, quick reference on some of the more common orthopedic emergencies children experience. ... It will be most valuable to orthopedic surgeons and residents, but also has value for students doing orthopedic or emergency rotations. ... This is a short, solid, well-presented book on the most common pediatric orthopedic surgical emergencies. It will prove to be a good primer in the emergency department library or for aspiring or early training-level orthopedic residents." (Robert M. Arensman, Doody's Review Service, July, 2012)
