About this book

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.
