Product Description:

This new compilation of Dr. Netter's famous drawings includes the work of his talented successors, who faithfully uphold the Netter tradition in their skillful depiction of the latest techniques and procedures. This new atlas-quality reference provides an essential overview of pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Clear and straightforward accompanying text describes the anatomy, basic science, and fundamental principles of evaluation and treatment that guide every clinical intervention.


  • Features more than 350 informative, beautifully drawn illustrations either by, or in the style of, Frank H. Netter, MD.
  • Provides relevant anatomy and basic science in the beginning of each chapter to lay the foundation for understanding the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of each clinical condition.
  • Covers individual topics affecting the entire musculoskeletal system, such as arthritic disorders, fractures, rehabilitation, and nerve disorders.
  • Organizes diagnostic and therapeutic techniques by region to help you apply management principles in practice.

Summary: Netter's Ortho. Book Review
Rating: 2

I would not recommend this book. The book is not very well written and is not the "usual" Netters type book. I was very disappointed with this book.
Summary: Not for Orthopaedists....
Rating: 2

This book from Walter Greene is a text which goes throught basic information highlighting many important orthopaedic conditions. Good book for students, primary care doctors, or those in ancillary staff. Very few illustrations provided, and less detail than expected. No approaches provided. Beware, more of a general ortho text than an anatomy reference.

The leader: "atlas quality reference" is a little misleading.


  • Вопросы реабилитации после заболеваний и повреждений кисти (Усольцева)

    Успех реабилитации зависит от своевременного использования всего арсенала средств, предупреждающих осложнения в процессе лечения, и устранения возникших последствий. Реабилитация должна проводиться непрерывно, комплексно, коллективно с привлечением не только врачей различных специальностей, но и представителей профсоюза, социального обеспечения и других организаций в зависимости от конкретных обстоятельств.

    Различаются следующие виды реабилитации: медицинская, включающая все лечебные и психологические мероприятия, способствующие восстановлению здоровья больного; социальная— развитие навыков самообслуживания в домашней, уличной и другой социальной среде; профессионально-производственная реабилитация — подготовка и освоение трудовой деятельности, т. е. выход из болезни, возвращение в производственную обстановку (А. Ф. Каптелин, 1976).

    imagesFlexor Tendon из книги" HAND AND UPPER EXTREMITY REHABILITATION"
    Mary Formby
    The healing of the repaired flexor tendon is at least a 6-month process. The “best” way to manage the first 12-week period remains controversial despite significant research and clinical advances over the last 50 years. Effective communication among surgeon, therapist, and patient throughout the rehabilitation process is essential for achievement of a successful outcome.

    Tendon healing occurs by both intrinsic and extrinsic processes.1 When intrinsic healing dominates, few adhesions form, and the result is more freely gliding tendons. Tendons with fewer adhesions must be carefully protected from resistive use, because they may be at greater risk for rupture. The rehabilitation timeline for such patients may need to be slowed. When extrinsic healing dominates, an increased inflammatory response occurs as the result of high-energy injury, postsurgical infection, or other factors. These patients have poorer tendon glide and may need their rehabilitation timeline advanced more quickly. Because each person’s biological response to healing is different, a “pyramid-of-force” model2 for flexor tendon rehabilitation was proposed by Groth in 2004. This model is based on a progression of force application that safely maximizes tendon excursion. Both time-based protocols and Groth’s new rehabilitation model are presented in this chapter.
