Extract

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.
