    Apley & Solomon's Concise System of Orthopaedics and Trauma is firmly established as the leading introductory textbook of orthopaedic practice and the principles of fracture and trauma management. Praised in previous editions for the systematic approach, balanced content and easy-to-read style, this fifth edition has been brought fully up to date under the direction of the new and distinguished authorial team, while remaining true to the teaching principles of Alan Apley and his successor Louis Solomon.

    Key features:

    Focused on diseases and clinical signs with additional detail on anatomy where appropriate

    International – enhanced coverage of 'global orthopaedics' reflect the changing pattern of musculoskeletal disease and trauma around the world

    Relevant provides helpful guidance on simple procedures without unnecessary operative detail

    Readable – increased emphasis on concise presentation

    Current – updates reflect developments in molecular biology, genetics and imaging technology

    This fifth edition remains the first choice for medical students, trainee surgeons and other health professionals seeking a convenient introduction to this large and complex subject and is a natural precursor to the more detailed coverage offered by its larger parent, Apley & Solomon's System of Orthopaedics and Trauma.
