Manual of Internal Fixation in Small Animals, 2nd Revised and Enlarged Edition
by Wade O. Brinker, Marvin L. Olmstead, Geoffrey Sumner-Smith
December 2013 (reprint of the original 2nd ed. 1998 edition)
This second revised and enlarged edition addresses current techniques concerned with the implementation of the Ao/Asif System in small animal orthopaedic surgery. Surgeons who have used the system over the years have now considerable knowledge and experience which they have made available in this text. The same individuals have designed and modified special implants which are now available to the Small Animal Orthopaedic Surgeon. Sections have been added or modified concerned with severe trauma, implant removal and a system for recording fracture type and treatment. The book will serve to inform the experienced surgeon of the current situation, and at the same time it is still a basic text for the newcomer to veterinary small animal orthopaedics in general and the Ao/Asif system in particular.
