The book provides relevant viva voce reading material for preparation for most of the orthopedic cases given in a standard practical evaluation. The third edition aims to improve the preparation of students for practical examination. A new chapter on reading an X-ray has been added along with the addition of new cases like tuberculosis of knee joint, foot drop, and deltoid contracture. Lots of questions with relevant answers have been added for hip cases. All these are amply supplemented with adequate figures.
Covers various aspects of practical examination in orthopedics based on the Indian format of evaluation of postgraduate students.
Organized in three broad sections, namely, the Methods of examination of specific cases (divided as per region of interest), Long cases and Short cases.
Arranged in a question-answer format in a flow that resembles natural progression of viva-voce, so that students get a virtual understanding of viva questions and the manner in which they should be answered.
Provides information on unusual aspects of orthopedic disorders and topics, which are generally not covered in textbooks or routine didactics. This prevents the students from being surprised by questions related to historical teachings, evolution of techniques and methods, failed modalities (that were once prevalent and have now been abandoned), etc.
Includes additional information and cases, including futuristic techniques that are on the verge of being incorporated into the field of orthopedics.
Supplemented by figures which simplify the comprehension of confusing methods and ambiguous terms.
