G Murdoch, A Bennett-Wilson
Taylor & Francis, 1996 - Medical - 391 pages
Amputation: Surgical Practice and Patient Management provides a complete text for good surgical technique and sensible and practical patient management. Its timely publication, in association with the ISPO (International Society for Prosthetics and
Orthotics), coincides with the World Conference of the ISPO (which is held only every 4 years). It admirably fills its aims of promoting good amputation practice world-wide.
* Amputation, perhaps the first surgical operation ever performed is today, still one of the most common operations and both orthopaedic and vascular surgeons need to know how to do it well. In the industrial world, vascular disease is the main causal
condition whereas in the developing world the main cause is trauma and usually associated with conflict/war Patient recovery and the correct fitting of artificial limbs depends upon good surgical and prosthetic practice, * Over 50 different surgeons, doctors and other specialists from the UK, continental Europe, USA, Australia and India have contributed to this impressive consensual account of good practice.
