This book is derived from Ronald McRae’s Pocketbook of Orthopaedics and Fractures, a highly successful ‘survival guide’ for the trainee working in accident and emergency or orthopaedic departments. Retaining the underlying principles of the original editions this comprehensive rewrite and re-presentation provides complete coverage of orthopaedic trauma surgery as relevant to contemporary practice.
- McRae's Orthopaedic Trauma and Emergency Fracture Management utilises a detailed descriptive and didactic style, alongside a wealth of illustrations all completely redrawn for this book.
- The first section on general principles in orthopaedic trauma deals with basic terminology and classification, principles of closed and operative management of fractures, infection and complications.
- The main section provides a regional review of specific injuries, each following a logical sequence describing emergency department and orthopaedic management, and outlining a safe and widely accepted management strategy. Each chapter begins with an overview of the relevant anatomy and principles of the examination of the patient.
- The book provides a comprehensive overview of both surgical as well as conservative management of orthopaedic trauma injuries.

This re-writing and re-drawing of McRae's Pocketbook of Orthopaedics and Fractures, while longer, retains the essential elements that made McRae's books successful: succinct text and exact illustrations conveying the essential information with just enough extra detail (to entertain and thus increase understanding and retention, while demonstrating traditional Scottish thrift with printer's ink. The tone is authoritative and entirely without references, though important classifications, for example, are named, described, and, most usefully, explained and placed in context. The drawings by Robert Britton are clear and tightly integrated with the text and radiographs - effective collaboration and editing has paid off."
