Following the very successful Manual of Fracture Management – Hand and Wrist book, AOTrauma has released an updated publication dedicated to the hand.

The management of traumatic and reconstructive problems of the hand has become an ever more complex field. Advances in basic science and technology, together with a growth in clinical expertise, have resulted in recent dramatic changes in many of the implants, instruments and techniques used in modern hand surgery.

Manual of Fracture Management – Hand is principally a case-based publication, designed to instruct and introduce new technologies and methods to both new and experienced hand surgeons. It provides an extensive list of in-depth case studies for fractures and disorders of the proximal, middle and distal phalanxes, PIP joint fracture dislocations, fractures of the thumb and metacarpals, delayed/non-unions and other complex cases.

The book’s key features include:

  • detailed case descriptions and recommended treatment options for a wide variety of fracture and injury types, from spiral to transverse, and multifragmentary to mal-union, involving the proximal middle and distal phalanges of the fingers and thumb, the metacarpals, and the joints;
  • more than 2250 high-quality illustrations and clinical images; and
  • access to an online video library of dozens of clinical demonstrations.

Using the principles and techniques developed by leading surgical specialists from the renowned AO Foundation, AOTrauma bring you this exciting update, which will be an ideal resource for trauma and orthopaedic surgery professionals, residents in training, and medical students around the world.
