Summary and Info
This successful book, first published in 1980 and now in its fourth edition, provides an authoritative guide for busy practitioners trying to keep pace with current trends in small animal orthopaedic surgery. In this new edition Hamish Denny and Steven Butterworth have retained the same practical approach but have completely rewritten and updated the book to provide a comprehensive review of orthopaedic and spinal conditions in the dog and cat. The illustrations have also undergone a major overhaul and the many line drawings are now combined with photographs and radiographs to clarify diagnostic and surgical techniques. Although the size of the book has increased, its regional approach to problems still enables the reader to use it as a rapid reference guide. It will prove an invaluable source of information for veterinary practitioners diagnosing and treating orthopaedic and spinal problems, while postgraduate students taking further qualifications in orthopaedics will find a sound basis for their studies and further reading provided here.Content: Chapter 1 Fracture Healing (pages 1–17): Chapter 2 Bone Grafts (pages 18–23): Chapter 3 Healing of Soft Tissue Injuries (pages 24–30): Chapter 4 Osteochondrosis (pages 31–34): Chapter 5 Intervertebral Disc Disease and Spinal Cord Injury (pages 35–37): Chapter 6 Classification and Investigation of Joint Disease (pages 39–51): Chapter 7 Osteoarthritis (pages 52–63): Chapter 8 Immune?Mediated Polyarthritides (pages 64–72): Chapter 9 Infective (Septic) Arthritis (pages 73–76): Chapter 10 Joint?Related Neoplasia (pages 77–80): Chapter 11 Classification of Fractures (pages 83–86): Chapter 12 Options in Fracture Management (pages 87–131): Chapter 13 Fracture Complications (pages 132–151): Chapter 14 Open Fractures (pages 152–154): Chapter 15 Treating Fractures in Immature Patients (pages 155–159): Chapter 16 The Skull (pages 163–174): Chapter 17 Neurological Examination (pages 175–183): Chapter 18 Differential Diagnosis (pages 184–185): Chapter 19 Further Investigation of Spinal Diseases (pages 186–200): Chapter 20 Peripheral Nerve Injury (pages 201–205): Chapter 21 Spinal Fractures and Luxations (pages 206–216): Chapter 22 Atlantoaxial Subluxation (pages 217–222): Chapter 23 Cervical Disc Disease (pages 223–230): Chapter 24 Cervical Spondylopathy (pages 231–245): Chapter 25 Thoracolumbar Disc Disease (pages 246–262): Chapter 26 Lumbosacral Disease (pages 263–277): Chapter 27 Discospondylitis (pages 278–282): Chapter 28 Neoplasia of the Vertebral Column (pages 283–285): Chapter 29 Miscellaneous Conditions of the Spine (pages 286–297): Chapter 30 Examination and Differential Diagnosis of Forelimb Lameness (pages 301–302): Chapter 31 The Shoulder (pages 303–340): Chapter 32 The Humerus (pages 341–362): Chapter 33 The Elbow (pages 363–388): Chapter 34 The Radius and Ulna (pages 389–408): Chapter 35 The Carpus (pages 409–424): Chapter 36 The Manus (pages 425–432): Chapter 37 Forelimb Amputation (pages 433–436): Chapter 38 Examination and Differential Diagnosis of Hindlimb Lameness (pages 437–440): Chapter 39 The Pelvis (pages 441–454): Chapter 40 The Hip (pages 455–494): Chapter 41 The Femur (pages 495–511): Chapter 42 The Stifle (pages 512–553): Chapter 43 The Tibia and Fibula (pages 554–574): Chapter 44 The Tarsus (pages 575–597): Chapter 45 The Pes (page 598): Chapter 46 Hindlimb Amputation (pages 599–600): Chapter 47 Nutritional Bone Disease (pages 601–606): Chapter 48 Non?Nutritional Bone Disease (pages 607–612): Chapter 49 Myopathies (pages 613–615): Chapter 50 Peripheral Neuropathies (pages 616–617): Chapter 51 Bone Neoplasia (pages 618–626):
