From the book reviews:"Written by many collaborators orthopedic surgeons and anesthetists, this book constitutes a true platform of contact between these two specialities, so often confronted with clinical situations where the operational indication must be discussed according to the anesthetic risk. For these reasons, this book should be present in the office of each specialist, but even be on the table of staff, during the discussion of the operational indications."
