AOTrauma launched its latest book publication titled Principles of Orthopedic Infection Management on December 6 during the Davos Courses 2016. This highly informative book provides the core principles, treatment options, and the latest information and research specifically on orthopedic infection and related issues, and includes contributions from more than 60 renowned specialists, as well as 25 detailed patient cases, and more than 800 illustrations and images.
The book’s editors, Stephen Kates (US) and Olivier Borens (CH), said that few books adequately dealt with the sorts of issues experienced by surgeons in their daily practice and that a highly practical publication on infection was urgently needed.
“At the time of planning for the book there was very little literature and no orthopedic text that covered the sorts of things we felt were important. Many books were written specifically for and by infectiologists but nothing combined the daily practical needs of both the surgeon and the infection specialist.”
“It was our great pleasure then to be able to liaise with medical colleagues and education experts to develop this text at a time when infection had come to light as a critical and overlooked factor within orthopedic treatment.”
“We are extremely pleased to have been able to work with opinion leaders from a wide range of fields and specialties as well as staff from AOTrauma and the AO Education Institute to bring this book to publication.”
The book is available through the Thieme publishing website at www.thieme.com
