Front Cover

Springer-Verlag, 1994 - Fractures - 476 pages
Following a presentation of basic principles of fracture fixation and biomechanical principles the book turns to practical problemsolving areas, namely, the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and foot, and spine, and special problems in children. Internal fixation, including intramedullary nailing and the use of external fixation are described.
Compound fractures are everyday problems, and the principles of their management and practical solutions deserve separate discussion. The value of microsurgical techniques has been underestimated by orthopaedic experts and the indications, choices, and procedures need to be put into proper perspectives.
