About this book


Comprised exclusively of clinical cases covering scaphoid fractures and nonunions, this concise, practical casebook will provide clinicians in orthopedic, plastic and hand surgery with the best real-world strategies to properly diagnose and treat the various forms of the condition they may encounter. After a brief introduction covering scaphoid anatomy, each chapter is in the form of 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 different injuries and management strategies from acute scaphoid fractures and nonunions to advanced collapse, covering non-operative and arthroscopic techniques as well as autograft procedures and salvage options. Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Scaphoid Fractures and Nonunions: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for seasoned as well as those training to be orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, hand surgeons and emergency medicine physicians alike.
