One in six fractures presenting at an emergency department represents a distal
radius fracture (Court-Brown and Caesar 2006). While many of these fractures
can be treated safely and effectively with nonsurgical methods, intra-articular

This superbly illustrated book is a comprehensive and detailed guide to the contemporary arthroscopic management of intraarticular fractures. The opening section addresses a variety of basic aspects and key issues, including the difficulties posed by intraarticular fractures, principles of fixation, cartilage healing, and rehabilitation. The minimally invasive surgical techniques appropriate to individual types of fracture are then fully described and depicted, covering fractures of the shoulder and elbow, wrist, pelvis and hip, knee, and ankle. Guidance is also provided on avoidance and management of complications and rehabilitation. The closing section addresses relevant miscellaneous issues, including arthroscopic management of temporomandibular joint fractures and extended indications for endoscopy-assisted fracture fixation. This volume will be of value for both trainee and experienced surgeons when treating patients with these complex fractures.
Part of the Mastering Orthopedic Techniques series, this comprehensive manual is a complete guide to the surgical management of intra-articular fractures.

Intra-articular fractures occur on the surface of a bone that meets a joint with another bone. They are more serious than fractures that do not involve a joint space because they are associated with much greater incidence of long-term complications (MediVisuals Inc). Part of the Mastering Orthopedic Techniques series, this comprehensive manual is a complete guide to the surgical management of intra-articular fractures. Beginning with an introduction providing an overview of articular fractures, the following chapters provide a ‘how to’ style commentary, joint by joint and by fracture type. Each chapter provides an understanding of different injuries, practical classifications, challenges in diagnosis and the reasons why one surgical option may be more appropriate than another for a particular fracture type. Each surgical option is described in detail with drawings, clinical photos, surgical techniques, equipment needed, tricks and techniques for reduction and fixation, and an overview of postoperative management, complications and results. Key points Comprehensive guide to surgical management of intra-articular fractures Provides ‘how to’ style commentary by joint and fracture type Includes nearly 1200 full colour drawings and clinical photos Written by an internationally recognised editor and author team from Europe, the US and Asia

This new volume of the prestigious Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery series presents the most advanced and successful surgical techniques for treatment of fractures of the upper extremity, lower extremity, pelvis, and acetabulum. The book is written by the leading surgeons, who discuss each surgical procedure as if they were working side by side with the reader--explaining the indications and rationale for the procedure, giving step-by-step instructions on technique, identifying pitfalls and potential complications, and offering valuable tips for improving surgical results. This volume is thoroughly illustrated with full-color intraoperative photographs, as well as drawings by a noted medical illustrator.

his volume of the popular Teaching File Series presents 429 musculoskeletal imaging cases culled from the teaching files of leading medical centers. The format replicates the learning experience of sitting at the viewbox with an expert consultant, honing your diagnostic reasoning skills. All cases are presented as unknowns in a consistent format--a brief clinical history, one or more images, a description of the findings, the diagnosis, and a discussion. Discussions reflect those that typically occur between radiologic consultant and clinician or between faculty member and resident. Organized by anatomic region, the case collection encompasses all imaging modalities, including radiography, CT, MRI, nuclear imaging, and sonography. Coverage includes all categories of musculoskeletal disease--trauma, tumors, joint disease, endocrine and metabolic bone disease, infections, congenital and developmental conditions, and musculoskeletal manifestations of systemic disease.
