Written by one of the world's foremost authorities, this beautifully illustrated surgical atlas is a case-based presentation of the management of distal radius fractures. Each chapter offers a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and treatment of a specific fracture, including possible complications and how to prevent them, using detailed photographs and illustrations. The cases are accompanied by high-quality operative video to complete the surgical picture. Special emphasis throughout focuses on avoiding pitfalls and using special techniques to optimize outcomes.
- Nearly 700 illustrations and intraoperative photographs guide the reader through procedures.
- Operative video for all chapters, narrated by the author, including detailed explanations and rationale for each maneuver.
- A focus on the "how" of surgical technique (rather than the "why") keeps attention on the necessary steps, tools, and procedures to address a specific type of fracture.
- Real cases, presented from beginning to end, cover all of the difficult aspects of fracture management.
