Special Issue: Current Management of Distal Radius Fractures and their Complications

The present anthology “Current Management of Distal Radius Fractures and their Complications” attempts to summarize the current trends from the literature regarding fracture classification (with the additional use of CT Scans), indications for conservative/operative treatment, surgical techniques, arthroscopic-assisted treatment/concomitant injuries, rehabilitation, complications, instability of the distal radioulnar joint, corrective and salvage procedures. It has no claims to represent the entire spectrum, but rather attempts to assist the treating surgeons in their decisions to provide the optimal treatment for individual distal radius fractures.

Nine different expert hand surgeons were invited to share their experiences and know how when treating distal radius fractures. They also provided their critical assessment of the current emerging literature. These included their expertise and preferred treatment method. All authors work in central Europe, and are confronted daily with injuries to the hand. Therefore, compiling this manuscript inspite of their large clinical workload deserves our greatest respect and gratitude. Without their input and excellent performance, completion of this very high-quality anthology would not have been possible.
