The revised, streamlined, and reorganized fourth edition of the DeLee & Drez's Orthopaedic Sports Medicine: Principles and Practice covers the rehabilita- tion/injury prevention, medical, and surgical topics re- lated to athletic injuries and chronic conditions.
The aim of the new edition of the book is to reflect the latest advances in orthopaedic and sports medicine community knowledge, including evidence- based medicine, rehabilitation and surgical approaches to musculoskeletal injuries, and principles of injury preven- tion.
The book addresses a wide range of audi- ences, from graduate or postgraduate students to general practitioners in the field of sport and exercise medicine, as well as to team doctors, athletic trainers, university doctors, and physicians and practicing orthopaedic sur- geons in sport and exercise medicine.
The book is composed of 2 volumes, 10 sec- tions, and 138 chapters in total. An appendix including sports medicine terminology and the index is placed at the end. There are many colored figures and tables. Vol- ume 1 includes 5 sections. Section 1 is about basic scien- tific principles of musculoskeletal injury, medications used in athletes, exercise physiology, and imaging. Sec- tion 2 comprises medical conditions in some chronic diseases and in different athletic population like females and para-athletes. Issues about rehabilitation and injury prevention are addressed in Section 3. Section 4 and 5 presents injuries and their treatment strategies in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand joint.
