Description

Authored by a renowned expert in the field of hand and wrist surgery, this second edition of Wrist Arthroscopy Techniques is a step-bystep, anatomically illustrated manual encompassing the latest concepts in the field.

Starting with an introduction about instrumentation and techniques, readers will gain insight into how an arthroscope enables precise visualization and analysis of the internal structural make-up of the wrist.

Each chapter provides a how-to, detailed procedural guide—from the point of incision to closure, accompanied by artfully drawn illustrations. The author shares clinical pearls and provides comprehensive explanations on treating specific conditions, including ligament tears and instability, complex fractures, dorsal and volar wrist ganglia, advanced arthritis, and fibrocartilage tears. Indications, risks, special precautions, and postoperative care are covered.

Special Features

  • Meticulous explanation of anatomical structures
  • Multiple surgical approaches included, where applicable
  • Coverage of new minimally invasive arthroscopy

An invaluable and comprehensive resource tool covering the state-of-the-art arthroscopic techniques, it is a must-have for all hand and wrist surgeons and for orthopaedic and plastic surgeons and residents as well.
