Overview

This acclaimed volume of the Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery series is now in its completely revised and updated Second Edition. The world’s foremost hand surgeons describe their preferred techniques in step-by-step detail, explain the indications and contraindications, identify pitfalls and potential complications, and offer pearls and tips for improving results. The book is thoroughly illustrated with full-color, sequential, surgeon’s-eye view intraoperative photographs, as well as drawings by noted medical illustrators.

Thirteen new chapters cover repair of fractures and dislocations; release and reconstruction of digital syndactyly; repeat decompression of the medial nerve at the wrist with the hypothemar fat pad coverage; repair of the “Jersey finger”; centralization of the extensor tendon for acute and chronic subluxation; local flaps for coverage of fingertip tissue loss; microsurgical repair of soft tissue deficits; coverage of tissue defects with pedicled flaps; and reconstruction of the partially amputated thumb with metacarpal lengthening.
