The presentation of new techniques in fracture repair has been enhanced by the excellent artwork of Michael Simmons, who also contributed numerous drawings to the first edition. These illustrations provide a valuable teaching resource for both trainees and experienced surgeons. I am also pleased to acknowledge the extensive assistance of the surgery and imaging technicians in the preparation of the materials in many chapters of this book. In the period between the first and second editions, digital radiography has been introduced, which has meant that many of the examples are now represented by pre‐ and postoperative digital radio-graphs, and three‐dimensional imaging, of exquisite detail.
Numerous examples of fractures and their variations are included to provide a comprehensive illustration of fracture types and repair choices. The patience of the Wiley team as we extensively updated and expanded this book into its second edition is much appreciated.
