Tachdjian's pediatric orthopaedics; from the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, 4th ed.; 3v. (DVDs included)
Ed. by John Anthony Herring.
Produced almost entirely by the orthopedic staff of the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, this three-volume work is a revised and updated medical textbook on pediatric orthopedics. Under the heading "disciplines" it first covers growth and development, the orthopedic examination, gait analysis, the limping child, back pain, anesthesiology, management of the child with developmental disabilities, and imaging. Then follows a section on anatomic disorders, which covers disorders of the neck, scoliosis, kyphosis, other anatomic disorders of the spine, disorders of the upper extremity, developmental dysplasia of the hip, Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, slipped capital femoral epiphysis, congenital coxa vara, disorders of the femur, disorders of the knee, disorders of the leg, disorders of the foot, and limb length discrepancy. The text then moves to neuromuscular disorders and includes chapters on disorders of the brain, disorders of the spinal cord, poliomyelitis, disorders of the peripheral nervous system, and muscle diseases. Orthopedic disorders are covered in chapters on skeletal dysplasias, orthopedic- related syndromes, metabolic and endocrine bone diseases, limb deficiencies, arthritis, infections of the musculoskeletal system, and hematologic disorders. Musculoskeletal tumors are the subject of the next section, which includes chapters on general principles of tumor management, benign musculoskeletal tumors, and malignant bone tumors. The final section covers injuries with chapters discussing general principles of managing orthopedic injuries, spinal injuries, upper extremity injuries, and lower extremity injuries. The text is extensively illustrated with photographs, drawings, and medical images. Accompanying DVDs include video footage of important procedures.
