The Wrist: Diagnosis and Operative Treatment, Second Edition is the most comprehensive text and reference on diagnosis and treatment of wrist disorders. Written by world-renowned experts from the Mayo Clinic and other leading institutions, this definitive text covers examination techniques for the wrist and diagnosis and treatment of fractures, dislocations, carpal instability, distal radius injuries, rheumatoid problems, soft tissue disorders, and developmental problems. The treatment chapters provide extensive coverage of current surgical techniques. More than 3,000 illustrations complement the text. This thoroughly updated Second Edition has many new contributors, including several international wrist investigators. New chapters cover wrist outcome assessment scores; treatment subtypes for carpal instability (tenodesis/capsulodesis and intercarpal fusions); denervation procedures; acute and chronic instability of the distal radioulnar joint; and evaluation and treatment of axial forearm instability (Essex-Lopresti lesion). A companion website includes the fully searchable text and an image bank.
The Scaphoid brings together in one definitive reference every aspect of carpal scaphoid injury treatment. Featuring insights from pioneers in the field, its comprehensive coverage extends from standard open procedures to state-of-the-art percutaneous methods and mini-incision techniques.Each chapter covers a different procedure, beginning with a discussion of relevant anatomical considerations, indications, contraindications, and potential outcomes. The expert authors then present step-by-step demonstrations of each surgical approach complemented by clearly labeled illustrations that help readers to visualize the specific procedure while reinforcing their understanding of the basic principles of scaphoid fracture fixation.Features Comprehensive information on arthroscopic bone grafting, vascularized grafts, salvage procedures, the various types of implants, and much more 600 vivid illustrations -- including 300 in full-color -- enhance the text Concise, narrated videos on an accompanying Thieme MediaCenter web page demonstrate procedures described in the book, including percutaneous, mini-open and arthroscopic assisted scaphoid screw insertion, volar and dorsal vascularized scaphoid bone grafts, and more This highly practical clinical reference is an indispensable resource for every resident, fellow, or clinician in hand surgery, orthopedic trauma surgery, or plastic surgery.
Comprised exclusively of clinical cases covering scaphoid fractures and nonunions, this concise, practical casebook will provide clinicians in orthopedic, plastic and hand surgery with the best real-world strategies to properly diagnose and treat the various forms of the condition they may encounter. After a brief introduction covering scaphoid anatomy, each chapter is in the form of a case that opens with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management techniques used to treat it, as well as the case outcome and clinical pearls and pitfalls. Cases included illustrate different injuries and management strategies from acute scaphoid fractures and nonunions to advanced collapse, covering non-operative and arthroscopic techniques as well as autograft procedures and salvage options. Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Scaphoid Fractures and Nonunions: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for seasoned as well as those training to be orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, hand surgeons and emergency medicine physicians alike.

In the past, conservative (or nonoperative) treatment of fractures of the hand has been the rule and severe and multiple fractures usually did not receive surgical atten tion. There are probably several reasons why this is so. Rarely did these fractures threaten life; they usually healed rapidly; and after immobilization, hand pain usually subsided. At the same time, intraarticular fractures frequently were unstable and often displaced and attempts to correct deformity were considered difficult to achieve. As a result, the ultimate joint motion in many cases was limited. It can fairly be said that decisions and techniques regarding internal fixation of small joints and bones were not known to most surgeons. Although the history of internal fixation is not extensive, there have been some exciting events. In the 16th century gold plates were used to repair cleft palates. Later, the Chinese employed wire loop sutures to correct difficult fractures. In the 18th century silver cerclage wires were used to achieve fixation and promote early bone healing. Although these fracture treatments occasionally proved successful, more frequently they did not and they never enjoyed wide acceptance. Doctors Alan Free land, Michael Jabaley, and James Hughes have described this history of bone fixation in a manner that is both colorful and educational and they have managed to extract the essential features that lend continuity to the story of the development of internal fixation.
