The management of distal radius fracture has changed considerably over the past 15 years, particularly with the introduction of wrist arthroscopy and the volar locking plates. The most difficult group of fractures is those where the joint has also been involved, and for those arthroscopy plays an important role. "Arthroscopic Management of Distal Radius Fractures" will be the first one-point reference to comprehensively cover this subject.Instructively illustrated with line drawings, X-rays and clinical photos this hands-on guide depicts novel techniques in general and arthroscopic techniques in particular. The book includes chapters for beginners (e.g. anatomy of portals), as well as the step-by-step descriptions of sophisticated techniques like arthroscopic ulnar reattachment. It helps surgeons explore the possibilities of arthroscopy as well as pick up tricks, in order to master the technique. Additionally, there are chapters discussing the important findings that can only be made with the help of arthroscopy, and which bear prognostic implications and relevance.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book is well written with clear . descriptions of the rationale for use of the arthroscope. Each chapter has a well-chosen list of references for further research on the topic. The quality of the radiographic . illustrations is absolutely outstanding and significantly contributes to the quality of the book. Overall this is a clearly written, and exceptionally well illustrated volume . . The book is likely to be essential reading for any surgeon embarking . to assist in the management of these problems." (Nick Downing, The Journal of Hand Surgery (European Volume), Vol. 36 (3), 2011)"Different authors who have the necessary experience write the chapters. It is easy to read and concise. The text is clear without extraneous information. . Each chapter supplements the text with a plethora of photographs, cartoon diagrams, and x-rays that demonstrate the teaching points of the author. . The authors have done an exceptional job in simplifying the art of arthroscopic management of distal radius fractures. . it is certainly a good resource for a surgeon to read and perhaps limit technical difficulties and complications."
