NEW YORK, N.Y. /Publishers Newswire/ — Due to high demand in Brazil, a popular medical handbook, Fracture Classifications in Clinical Practice (ISBN-10: 1846280257; ISBN-13: 978-184-628-0252), has recently been published in Portuguese by DiLivros Publishing company. Authored by Dr. Seyed Behrooz Mostofi, FRCS (Tr&Orth), the book benefits an array of orthopedic medical professionals and helps them to communicate with greater accuracy and precision.

In 2006, this practical orthopedic handbook was first published in English by Springer-Verlag. It is primarily written for orthopedic residents and doctors to have accurate and up-to-date information available to them, especially when in the emergency room.

“When under pressure, doctors and residents often lack experience in orthopedics making the recognition and accurate identification of fractures and treatment a challenge,” Dr. Mostofi explains. “This handbook is intended to give them the practical tools that they need.”

“Fracture Classifications in Clinical Practice” is a comprehensive handbook that provides clear illustrations and explanatory text. This soft cover handbook is well organized and simply structured within a little over 100 pages. It breaks down the most widely used classification systems into a concise repository of information.

Classification systems that are covered include the most commonly used systems, allowing readers the opportunity to make a correct diagnosis using the appropriate criteria, while simplifying planning and management of future care. It also ensures that communication with experienced staff is more effective.

While the book is geared to registrars and residents, other medical professionals such as accident and emergency physicians, nurses, and physiotherapists will also benefit.

Dr. Mostofi is a consultant orthopedic surgeon at East Kent Hospitals, U.K. He is also the author of several other books that discuss basic facts in hip and knee replacements; rapid orthopedics diagnosis; and the opus magnum — Who’s Who in Orthopedics.

Due to this handbook’s global popularity, Fracture Classifications in Clinical Practice will also soon be available in Chinese.

The book is currently available at all major bookstores as well as at and
