The elbow is a complex joint and injuries can be difficult to treat. This book is a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and management of elbow injuries.
Beginning with an introduction to the anatomy and biomechanics of the joint, the following chapters describe both surgical and non-surgical treatment of numerous elbow disorders, from common injuries such as tennis elbow, tendon rupture and dislocation, to more complex disorders, including fractures, Panner’s Disease and Osteochondritis Dissecans.
Highly illustrated with more than 250 images and diagrams, this book is a useful reference for both practising orthopaedic surgeons and trainees.
