Operative Treatment of Elbow Injuries is a complete presentation of all surgical approaches to repair of the elbow, demonstrating the most effective management of elbow injuries and problems. Drs. Plancher and Baker have assembled a group of well-known experts to write on the various procedures. Each contributor for each chapter discusses clinical anatomy, physical exam, nonoperative treatment, indications, contraindications, operative techniques and preferred author technique, results and expectations, and complications. Unique features are a separate section on sports medicine, overuse syndromes, arthroscopy of the elbow, soft tissue injuries, compression syndromes and the "hot" new techniques of distraction arthroplasty, and distraction devices for contracture release. With over 450 illustrations, half in full color, this volume will be extremely useful to the orthopaedic surgeon and the sports medicine specialist.
