The third edition of the Atlas of Amputations and Limb Deficiencies:
Surgical, Prosthetic, and Rehabilitation Principles is a long-overdue
follow-up to the second edition of the Atlas of Limb Prosthetics:
Surgical, Prosthetic, and Rehabilitation Principles, published in 1992.
The new edition is a comprehensive reference book that provides a thoughtful
and detailed review of the surgical, biomechanical, and prosthetic aspects of
amputations and limb deficiencies and assesses the major advances in the care
of these patients over the last twelve years. The book is divided into five
comprehensive sections: introduction, the upper limb, the lower limb,
management issues, and pediatrics.
