In volume II, authors focus on the operative techniques in fracture fixation, providing their tricks and methods to avoid pitfalls. They provide their viewpoints on surgical principles, preoperative preparation, positioning and operative techniques, and cover in a comprehensive manner with all of the basic internal and external fixation techniques necessary for the treatment of musculoskeletal trauma. The appendix covers soft tissue considerations, such as tendon, nerve and vascular injuries. The newest developments in trauma treatment, including minimally invasive techniques and biological fixation, are addressed in the appendix as well.
