This new volume of the Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery Series focuses on management of soft tissue in orthopaedic trauma—how to avoid wound problems and correct wound problems that occur. Emphasis is on indications and contraindications for specific incisions and methods for flap coverage in cases of soft tissue loss. World-renowned surgeons with experience in both soft tissue and bone management describe their preferred techniques in step-by-step detail, point out pertinent anatomy, 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.

A companion Website offers the fully searchable text with all images.
