Fractures of the Upper Extremity: A Master Skills Publication continues the long tradition of educational works produced by the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. This publication is designed to provide residents, fellows and established surgeons with a powerful tool to advance their knowledge and skills in treating fractures of the upper extremity. Organized by anatomic region, its in-depth focus contains details, pearls and pitfalls provided by the masters of this craft. Rather than speaking theoretically or describing each reported method, these chapters focus on the “bottom-line, step-by-step, how-to” of treating these complicated fractures using the most advanced technology and techniques. Read cover to cover, or used as a preoperative reference, this book will help the reader choose the appropriate fixation technique, understand how to execute it with precision, know its limitations, optimize postoperative management and avoid the common pitfalls along the way.
This publication marks the third in the on-going Master Skills series. This series will add to the ASSH inventory of educational materials by focusing in-depth on a singular theme in hand and upper extremity surgery.
