Textbook of Orthopaedics (5th Edition)

Brief Introduction

Highlights of Textbook of Orthopaedics
• The book has been thoroughly overhauled
• Each and every chapter has been thoroughly updated
• I have inserted about 1,350 mind-boggling color diagrams in this edition
• I have inserted a number of color clinical photographs wherever required
• New X-rays have been added
• Breaking away from the conventional practice, I have introduced lots of innovative and thought-provoking diagrams, which is an idea of my own. Hope students will like it
• Even the appendices have been thoroughly revised
• Due to the sheer number of diagrams, the book has slightly overgrown its size. However, it is an apparent bulk and not the real bulk as diagrams add to the quality of the book.

Bone makes a valiant attempt to get back to its original shape and form after having suffered humiliating fractures due to a myriad of incriminating forces. Bone is unique in healing itself completely with a tissue that is indistinguishable from the original tissue hence there is no scar left. The term bone regeneration and not fracture healing is more appropriate. Bone is repaired by callus, which is a new tissue that may develop externally or internally. An external callus envelops around the outer aspect of the opposing ends of bone fragments. An internal callus forms between the bone ends. During the first two days at the fracture site and away from the fracture site, in the deep layer of the periosteum the osteogenic cells proliferate and lift the fibrous layer of the periosteum away from the bone. Marrow cells also proliferate but to a lesser degree. These osteogenic cells differentiate into osteoblasts, which form the bone trabeculae resembling the embryonic tissue. The osteogenic cells lying away from the fracture site due to inadequate vascularity differentiate into chondroblasts and chondrocytes, which form the cartilage. The cartilage is finally converted into bone by endochondral ossification.
