Principles of Orthopedic Infection Management
The medical world continues to make extraordinary advances in both scientific knowledge and surgical skill, yet despite these achievements, surgeons continue to struggle with the challenge of postoperative infection. Without proper prevention or treatment, orthopedic infection can become just as life-threatening as the initial trauma.
This highly informative clinical go-to text provides the core principles, treatment options, and the latest information and research specifically for the purpose of helping physicians manage orthopedic infections and related issues.
The book’s key features include:
- Contributions from 63 world renowned specialists from a broad range of fields in orthopedic traumatology and infectious diseases
- In-depth case examples involving 21 adult and 4 pediatric patients and covering a wide range of infections and anatomy
- Nine algorithms to assist in complex decision making
- Over 800 illustrations and images, and online access to 6 video presentations that outline the important steps in the prevention or management of infected joints, tissue, and implants
AOTrauma is proud to present this comprehensive new publication, which will be valuable to both orthopedic and trauma surgeons, as well as researchers and other medical experts within the field of infectious disease.
Acetabular Fractures: Diagnosis, Indications, Treatment Strategies 1st Edition
Enclosed within the deep and complex structures of the hip joint and the surroundings, acetabular fractures confront the orthopaedic surgeon with great challenges. A number of critical neurovascular structures in the vicinity are imperiled; the hip joint itself requires utmost care in surgery to preserve biomechanical stability over the long term and to postpone the development of posttraumatic osteoarthritis in the young to middle-aged patient collective.
It is the goal of this work to provide the surgeon with strategic tools to diagnose and evaluate the types of acetabular fractures to arrive at the optimal individual indication, thus taking a fracture-anatomy-guided approach to reduction and fixation.
- Eminently practical approach using more than 400 brilliant photographs, radiologic images, and drawings
- An emphasis on anatomical joint reconstruction to ensure the longest possible survival of the joint
- Discussion on age-specific problems and complications, such as osteoporosis, thromboembolism, and more
Acetabular Fractures will be welcomed by orthopaedic and trauma surgeons, as well as by residents and fellows, in these fields.

Bone Health: A Reflection of the Social Mosaic 1st ed
This multidisciplinary book addresses three lines of evidence (medieval, contemporary, and epigenetic) regarding the effect of human socio-economic status on bone health. It provides an overview of the extent to which human social background affects adult bone quality and quantity, and makes recommendations for future skeletal biology research into lifestyle-related musculoskeletal disorders.
The book is divided into three major parts, the first of which discusses bone and dental health in medieval human skeletal remains from distinct socio-economic status groups. In turn, Part 2 reviews bone health in contemporary human populations with a range of social backgrounds; in addition, a conceptual model proposing a social gradient of osteoporosis and fracture risk related to biological mechanisms and cumulative stressors throughout the human lifecycle is presented. Lastly, Part 3 highlights the role of epigenetics in socially patterned risk factors for skeletal disorders, and discusses how epigenetic mechanisms transduce the psychosocial environment and increase the risk of developing conditions such as osteoporosis.
Overall, the book highlights the importance of considering the social-biological nexus in future skeletal biology research and future treatment of bone disease. Increased awareness of this nexus can potentially improve individual and population-level bone health interventions, reducing the social inequities observed in fracture risk.
Given its scope, the book offers a valuable resource for researchers, academics, and students in the fields of medicine, epidemiology, the health sciences, biological anthropology, human anatomy and adaptation, developmental studies of human societies, human biology, and any field concerning musculoskeletal disorders and health. It will also benefit clinical practitioners evaluating osteoporosis, osteopenia, fracture risk, bone quality and quantity.
