There currently is a clear tendency to an increasing number of accidental injuries in elderly people, in sport injuries and car crashes also in countries which recently joined the European Union and candidates to join the European Union. Patients expect very good functional results even after serious injuries. But in contrast to this development, Trauma Surgery as an independent field, is not yet established in all European countries. Therefore, it seems mandatory to compile a book that covers the state-of-the-art in Trauma Surgery. The book also serves to harmonise the practice of Trauma Surgery within the European Union, and to prepare for the exam of the U.E.M.S.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is the first of three volumes in the European Manual of Medicine series intended to provide up-to-date information on trauma for both clinicians in training and senior practitioners. . General and trauma surgeons needing an outline of the general approach to surgical trauma care or preparing for standardized examinations are an appropriate audience for this work drawn from North American and European specialists. . This book is a good reflection of contemporary care which may be used by practicing surgeons." (David J. Dries, Doody's Review Service, August, 2011)
