A text that describes the indications and contraindications, as well as the operative techniques and pitfalls associated with the use of selected surgical approaches to clinical problems involving the wrist. It is constructed to provide a detailed step-by-step account of the technical details that are required to carry out commonly used procedures in an accomplished manner. The contributors are responsible for having either described or popularized the surgical approaches they depict, and their vast hands-on experience allows for the construction of uniquely detailed accounts of the most well-accepted operative methods. First-rate drawings, color photographs, and radiographs throughout. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
