External Fixation in Small Animal Practice
April 2008, Wiley-Blackwell
This book offers a highly practical guide to the use of linear
external fixators in small animal practice. Divided into two
sections, the first section reviews essential knowledge and
technical details that underpin the successful treatment of a
clinical case. The second is a collection of case studies
selected to show the range of fracture types and fixator systems
available. Within each case there is discussion of treatment
options and clinical decision-making. Follow-up radiographs then
provide invaluable insight into the normal radiographic appearance
of healing and healed fractures.
The authors have put together an intensely practical book that
will no doubt prove to be the perfect learning tool for the
surgical resident and practising veterinarian.
- A unique approach ensures the book is both practical and easy
- Written to appeal to practising veterinarians world-wide
- Contains over three hundred high quality radiographs
