Summary The Third Edition of this definitive work is broadened to include the next generation of trauma specialists. With 50 contributors, new techniques are covered with a focus on minimally invasive procedures. The text is divided into three sections: general aspects, disruption of the pelvic ring, and fractures of the acetabulum. New features include current percutaneous techniques and an accompanying CD-ROM that features additional cases
