Starting with an introduction about instrumentation and techniques, readers will gain insight into how an arthroscope enables precise visualization and analysis of the internal structural make-up of the wrist.
Each chapter provides a how-to, detailed procedural guide—from the point of incision to closure, accompanied by artfully drawn illustrations. The author shares clinical pearls and provides comprehensive explanations on treating specific conditions, including ligament tears and instability, complex fractures, dorsal and volar wrist ganglia, advanced arthritis, and fibrocartilage tears. Indications, risks, special precautions, and postoperative care are covered.
