System of Orthopaedics and Fractures

Image of Apley's System of Orthopaedics and Fractures, Ninth Edition

Editors: Solomon, Warwick and Nayagam

e-Book Review

At 974 pp, this is quite a tome for the student of orthopaedics, and would take its place comfortably in the study or library, but not in the rucksack or bag.

It is easy to get around, however. The page edges are colour-coded and divide the material up into the main sections of:

  • General Orthopaedics
  • Regional Orthopaedics
  •  
  • Fractures and joint injuries
  • Index

while an easily-thummable margin on the right identifies the sub-sections. So despite its size it is very easy to navigate. It is very extensively illustrated with case photographs, all manner of clinical imaging and line illustrations. the text holds true to the classical teachings of 'Symptoms', 'Examination', and 'Special Investigation'. Apley's original concepts of 'Look, Feel, Move' are faithfully retained. Thus it will be a comfortable but comprehensive companion for the student of orthopaedics.

Format: Hardcover, but available as e-book
