Review

"This third edition of Fracture Management For Primary Care, published 8 years after the second, has been significantly enhanced while maintaining its basic framework. With the continuing need for primary care physicians to assume the central role in the contemporary and anticipated models of health care delivery, this book is an excellent and timely addition. ... The stated aim of Fracture Management for Primary Care is 'to produce a practical user-friendly book that helps clinicians manage their patients who have fractures'. This 384-page book is edited by experienced family physicians, with contributions from 8 other family physicians. ...The description in the opening chapter of general principles of fracture care provides a well-thought-out, well-organized basic framework to apply to care of the specific fractures described in the subsequent chapters. The guidelines for when to refer a patient to an orthopedic surgeon are explicitly presented. Each chapter is organized in a consistent manner. ... (This) overall organization and consistency is perhaps the most useful feature in a book that lends itself to quick, practical, readable, and easy access in day-to-day practice. The book is full of radiographic images and line drawings related to almost all of the fractures described. ... Although the book is exceedingly practical and concise, it provides sufficient coverage of the breadth of the fractures and related problems seen in primary care. In this context, the breadth and depth of topics covered are exemplified by reviews regarding epiphyseal fractures, pediatric scaphoid fractures, distal clavicular fractures, scapular fractures, spine fractures, nontraumatic osteoporotic fractures, complex regional pain syndrome, and facial and skull fractures." -Dilip R. Patel, MD, Kalamazoo Center for Medical Studies, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, Kalamazoo; JAMA

I am a family doctor with a number of years in a semi-rural practice and more than my share of ER time. Fracture Management is a good, solid, conservative reference for it's intended audience. It will certainly keep you out of trouble. Due to it's brevity, there are a number of conditions that are missing, mostly less common problems, but sometimes the book does not cover the particular variant of the fracture you are seeing. Dislocations are largely not included. The photographs of x-rays are helpful when they are present, and I often show the patient the picture in the book as it often illustrates their fracture better than our sometimes crummy x-ray. Unfortunately, not all the photos clearly demonstrate what they aim to.

For a more comprehensive, and much larger, text on fractures, with some additional attention to mechanisms of injury and very helpful sketches, I recommend Connolly's Fractures and Dislocations: Closed Management. Though it is getting pretty old in its current edition, the basics of how people get hurt and how to manage them non-operatively, haven't changed all that much.

For a more broad based text on orthopedic care, with only brief attention to fractures, it's hard to go wrong with Essentials of Musculoskeletal Care.

I bought it at a sports medicine conference where all the major publishers had similar titles, and this was was the best. This one has a great "break"down of what you need to know, to refer, to treat, to watch for. Best bang for your buck especially if you have another text to complement it.

Again, this is an essential book, especially for the Family Practitioner just starting out. I have just graduated residency and am working alone at an Urgent Care Center, and I use this book almost every shift! Gives good, clear advice for managing the most common fractures encountered, and when (and more importantly, how quickly) to refer to ortho! Love It, worth every penny!

I'm a family doctor, and I do alot of work in injury clinics and rural areas. This book is without doubt the most essential for my practice. It is concise, tells you what to look for, what to do in the acute setting, how to manage long term, and when to refer. I cannot praise this book enough. Dr. Eiff - Thanks so much for this jewel.

Very easy to use, concise advice on the most common fractures. Not a definitive ortho text, but does exactly what the title indicates. Worth the price for anyone in primary care or urgent care environments.

As a fairly new Nurse Practitioner, I have found this book to be one of my most frequently used resources. It reviews terminology that is needed for communicating with the orthopedic specialists, as well as reviewing the anatomy and physiology of the most common fractures. The radiology pictures/x-rays are excellent for comparison and learning. I would like to see the authors incorporate highlighting or marking the x-ray examples so the novice knows exactly what they are looking at. Not all the samples are clear to the untrained eye. I highly recommend this book!

This has been a very useful reference to manage my patients' fractures as a PA without a supervisor handy. The book is organized so that you can find any fracture type easily. The charts are a quick reference for reXR timing, cast type and length of immobilization. Very well liked by all of us in this ortho practice.

I'm family medicine trained and have worked in primary care and urgent care.

I was a fan of the first edition; it helped me decide which injuries to refer and helped me successfully manage others myself. I recommended it to others and bought the second edition, which gets used a lot in our clinic.

So far, the third edition in kindle form looks good; it appears to be as user-friendly as the print version.
