Subsequent sections cover anatomy, surgical approaches, pathomechanics, diagnostic examination and imaging, fractures of the wrist, carpal instability, dislocations, the distal radioulnar joint, arthritis of the wrist, developmental disorders, complications and tendinitis, and tumors of the wrist. The final chapters discuss rehabilitation<-->including both physical and occupational therapy<-- >and future anticipations and needs. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
