Disorders of the Hand describes the techniques for diagnosis applicable to the various disorders of the hand and how evidence based findings influence clinical practice. Treatment options including surgery are discussed in detail and clinical pearls are given in every chapter.
Hand injuries are comprehensively covered in this first of four volumes, while hand reconstruction, nerve compression, inflammation and arthritis, swelling and tumours, congenital hand defects and surgical techniques are included in the book's three sister volumes.
A Injury Blood vessels Nerves Tendons - flexor extensor Skin cover Fractures - distal interphalangeal joint and distal phalanx proximal interphalangeal joint and middle phalanx metacapophalangeal joint and proximal phalanx, carpo-metacarpal joint and metacarpal carpo bones excluding scaphoid and distal radius. Instability - thumb and finger instability carpal instability distal radioulnar joint instability B.Reconstruction Nerve - nerve reconstruction tendon transfer Tendons - extensor flexor Bone - malunion/non-union of the digits scaphoid non-union distal radius malunion Instability - thumb and the digits chronic instability of the fingers and thumb carpal instability C. Nerve Compression Carpal tunnel Ulna nerve of the elbow Ulna nerve in the hand Radial nerve compression D.
