"Fractures in children differ from those in adults." So begins the third edition of Rang's Children's Fractures. The book ends with, "It is unlikely that the fracture incidence will decrease; therefore the medical system (and orthopedic community) should continue research on effective, efficient treatment methods. It is hoped that this text will contribute to this effort." I believe that the authors' hope will be realized, as this book is one that will be educational and informative to all students, residents, practicing physicians, and other providers who care for injured children. It should become a staple of orthopaedic residency libraries and pediatric emergency departments. In between the opening and closing statements, the reader will find an excellent overview of fractures in children, emphasizing the principles of care. There is enough detail to assist in the care of an individual patient and enough breadth to cover most fracture situations.
