Now in its revised and significantly expanded third edition, this comprehensive, authoritative text reinforces its standing as the gold standard on arthroscopic techniques for the wrist and elbow, now including selected open surgical techniques as well. Fundamental topics, such as anatomy, operative set-up, assessment, and lasers and electrothermal devices open the book. Generously illustrated with intraoperative photographs and full-color figures, chapters covering arthroscopic techniques are full-length and in detail. Topics include the management of TFCC tears, joint instability, arthritis, fractures and nonunions, dorsal and volar ganglions, and many more conditions and injuries of the wrist and elbow. While chapters on open techniques could present an extensive history and background of the subject as compared to the arthroscopic chapters, they will be focused approaches discussing why the author thinks it is the best open technique, including tips, tricks, pearls and how to perform the operation. Open management of ulnar impaction, scapholunate instability, total wrist arthroplasty, and elbow contractures are discussed, among others. Selected chapters include video supplements for additional, real-world demonstrations of techniques.
Bringing together a truly international cross-section of experts and thought leaders in orthopedics and hand surgery, Wrist and Elbow Arthroscopy with Selected Open Procedures, Third Edition remains the premier resource for all clinicians working in this field.
