Through engaging text, readers learn about the human bodyÍs skeletal system, which is made up of all the bones in the body. The book explains that bones hold you up, protect delicate organs such as your heart, help you move, and store fat, phosphorus, and calcium. Readers discover that ligaments and tendons hold bones together, a joint is where two bones meet, and bone marrow makes red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout your body, and white blood cells, which help fight germs. Kid-friendly text explains the axial skeleton, which includes the skull, the spine, the breastbone, and ribs, and the appendicular skeleton, which includes all the bones that branch off the axial skeleton, including arms, hands, legs, and feet. Readers learn that babies are born with 300 bones, some of which are made of cartilage. The hardening and fusing of bones as babies grow is discussed. Also highlighted are bone fractures and how they heal; diseases that affect the skeletal system, such as arthritis and osteoporosis; and how to care for the skeletal system with a healthy diet, plenty of calcium, and lots of exercise. Full-color photos, detailed diagrams, medical models, phonetics, glossary, and index enhance the text.

Tuberculosis of the Skeletal System is the latest edition of this comprehensive guide to the effects of tuberculosis on the bones and joints, with guidelines for their management. The book is divided into twenty-six chapters across three sections. The first section covers general considerations in osteo-articular tuberculosis, including epidemiology and prevalence, pathology and pathogenesis, diagnosis and investigations, and anti-tubercular drugs. The second section covers extra-spinal regional tuberculosis, from the hip joint to the shoulder, short tubular bones to sacroiliac joints and tendon sheaths. This section also includes a chapter on tuberculous osteomyelitis (infection of the bone marrow). Each chapter covers pathogenesis, clinical features, radiological findings, differential diagnosis, methods of treatment, surgical techniques, and relevant anatomy. The final section focuses on tuberculosis of the spine, including imaging for the disease, differential diagnosis, operative treatment, and surgical anatomy. The increased prevalence of ‘superbugs’ is addressed throughout this new edition, with discussion on new modalities which could potentially combat them. Enhanced by over 280 illustrations and images, this edition of Tuberculosis of the Skeletal System is an ideal update for orthopaedic surgeons.
