A comprehensive update on the state-of-the-art treatment of nonunions - an invaluable aid for any orthopaedic or trauma surgeon who has to deal with the problem of pseudarthrosis.
More than 130 case descriptions are included in the unique cases section; the core of this collection represents 40 years of Ren Marti's personal experience in nonunion treatment, demonstrating the principle technique over technology.
The editors have also carefully selected additional cases, contributed by several experts in nonunion treatment. Each case provides step-by-step descriptions of case history, preoperative planning, surgical approach, reduction, fixation, rehabilitation, and finally pitfalls and pearls. Hundreds of full-color pictures, precise illustrations, and x-rays demonstrate the significant steps in nonunion treatment.
