Here is the first compendium of principles of using locking compression plates in fracture management. With more than 100 cases from world-leading surgeons, including the inventors of the technique, this book will guide orthopedic trauma surgeons, general orthopedists, and residents through applications of the internal fixator technique. Intraoperative photos and illustrations in the book along with additional cases, animations, and videos, available for free online, make this AO Manual an indispensable reference.
