Proximal femoral fracture is a major cause of morbidity and mortality world over in view of huge population, high road traffic accident rate and increasing age of the population. The treatment guideline of this fracture inspite of advancements is still under debate. Dr. Sudhir Babhulkar and Dr. D D Tanna has complied their clinical experience with the current knowledge on the subject into this book. The book titles "Proximal femoral fractures" includes chapters on epidemiology, mechanism of injury and diagnosis. The individual fracture has been subdivided as femoral head fracture, femoral neck fracture in children and adults, intertrochanteric fractures, subtrochanteric fractures and rehabilitation. The anatomy details, specific features of proximal femur with illustrative diagram, which have significance in relation to fracture patterns and outcome. Each chapter deliberates on classifications, treatment options, management protocols and controversies about specific fracture. The text includes x-rays with good examples and suitable illustrative line diagram. The authors have tried to include practical technical tips in the discussion of each clinical problem.

The each fracture is well illustrated by a series of x-rays with long followup of one individual patient to present the final outcome. The unique feature of this book is good mix of text and almost 50% pictorial illustrations. I am sure this book will make a useful guide for orthopedics surgeons in their clinical practice and useful addition to the libraries.
