# Revised to take account of increased tendency towards operative management of fractures. It covers indications for and principles of operative management, without going into detail on operative technique, and continues to provide sound guidance on conservative management.
# Fracture classification systems which are too complex for "on the job" reference by trainee level staff have been dropped from the text.
# Improved reproduction of X rays.
# Thorough updating of all text and illustrations.
# Line diagrams have redrawn using shades of grey to give a clearer, brighter and more up to date appearance.
