100 orthopedics clinical cases address all regions of the body, helping instructors provide all the context their students need.


Many orthopedics educators struggle to find enough clinical cases to provide the context their students need. 100 Orthopedic Cases meets this need by providing cases for different regions of the body, with diverse and realistic complications and, in some cases, medical screening components. All assessments and treatments are based on available evidence from the literature, and some cases are based on case reports from the literature. Each case is organised to also permit its use in practical examination cases. After a primer on using the handbook and the elements of the orthopedics exam, students find cases on the cervical spine and temporomandibular Joint; the shoulder; elbow/wrist/hand; thoracolumbar spine and pelvis; hip, knee, lower leg, ankle, and foot, as well as additional miscellaneous cases.
