A Comprehensive Overview of Techniques for Cast, Splint, and Support Bandage Applications

New York, NY, January 25, 2015 --( "Casts, Splints, and Support Bandages: Nonoperative Treatment and Perioperative Protection," recently published by Thieme and the AO Foundation, provides an extensive overview of the history, principles, methods, and techniques for applying a modern plaster or synthetic cast.

“The authors are to be congratulated for the very detailed presentation of the various techniques by two masters in casting, which is most helpful especially for all those that have not had the chance to learn the special ‘art of casting’ with its many important tricks and hints. This book should find its place on the shelf of every casting room, at the disposal of residents and technicians, and for surgeons requiring up to date knowledge on the latest casting techniques.” – From the Foreword by Thomas P. Rüedi

This book comprises three main sections:

The Principles of Casting section outlines the basic principles of casting and splinting, the physical properties of cast materials, and socioeconomic considerations.

The Guidelines section explores nonoperative treatment for fractures, ligament, nerve, and soft-tissue injuries, overload injuries, and infections, in the upper and lower extremities and the spine

Finally, the Techniques section provides step-by-step descriptions on 55 individual cast, splint, orthosis, and bandaging techniques, presented in high quality online video and as stills with explanatory captions
