Distal Radius Fractures


258 Pages


Based exclusively upon clinical cases covering fractures of the distal
radius, this concise, practical casebook will provide orthopedic
surgeons and sports medicine specialists with the best real-world
strategies to properly manage the multifaceted surgical techniques for
management of the distal radius and distal radial ulnar joint (DRUJ).
Each chapter begins with a case that opens with a unique clinical
presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and
management techniques used to treat it, as well as the case outcome and
clinical pearls and pitfalls. Cases included illustrate the various
uses of the volar locking plate for metaphyseal and periarticular
fractures, among others, as well as management strategies for open
reduction internal fixation (ORIF) for the radial styloid. Ulnar styloid
and ulnar head/neck fractures are likewise described. Pediatric distal
radius fractures and complications round out the presentation. Pragmatic
and reader friendly, Distal Radius Fractures: A Clinical Casebook will
be an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons, hand and upper
extremity surgeons and sports medicine specialists confronted with both
common and complex fractures to the distal radius and DRUJ.
