About this book

According to reports in the literature, despite the severe disruption of carpal anatomy, fracture-dislocations of the wrist are missed on clinical and radiographic examination in a high percentage of cases. Orthopedic surgeons’ lack of familiarity with these injuries is one of the factors contributing to failed or delayed diagnosis. 

This richly illustrated book covers all types of wrist dislocation and fracture-dislocation. Detailed information is provided on anatomy and biomechanics, while terminology and classification of injuries are explained. Treatment options are thoroughly analysed, with special emphasis on surgical treatment, which is presented step by step. All of the figures – radiological and surgical – relate to patients treated by the author himself. Most of the cases are from the Red Cross Hospital of Athens that admits many patients with such injuries, in part through referral from other centres due to the author’s acknowledged expertise in the field. This volume, with its highly informative and up-to-date chapters and reviews, and a wealth of color figures, will be of great practical value for clinicians and residents in orthopedic surgery, who assist them in daily decision making.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a focused, well-organized book on the normal anatomy, biomechanics, and fracture- dislocations of the wrist. … This book is written for practicing surgeons as well as fellows and residents in training who encounter patients with these usually high-energy, relatively uncommon, injuries. … This is a necessary book for the academic orthopedic library.” (Samuel J. Chmell, Doody’s Book Reviews, January, 2014)
