Hand fractures account for millions of emergency room visits annually. The extraordinary importance of the hand in so many activities of daily living necessitates inordinate surgical competence in repairing fractures, in order to preserve the vast range of motion and functionality of this highly complex structure. Key Features: General overview chapters covering anatomy, epidemiology, fixation types, role of arthroscopy, and strategies for compound hand injuries (soft tissue, flaps, etc.) Contributions from a large number of renowned subspecialists Hand fractures in special patient groups: ath.
