Description : Intra-articular fractures occur on the surface of a bone that meets a joint with another bone. They are more serious than fractures that do not involve a joint space because they are associated with much greater incidence of long-term complications (MediVisuals Inc). Part of the Mastering Orthopedic Techniques series, this comprehensive manual is a complete guide to the surgical management of intra-articular fractures. Beginning with an introduction providing an overview of articular fractures, the following chapters provide a ‘how to’ style commentary, joint by joint and by fracture type. Each chapter provides an understanding of different injuries, practical classifications, challenges in diagnosis and the reasons why one surgical option may be more appropriate than another for a particular fracture type. Each surgical option is described in detail with drawings, clinical photos, surgical techniques, equipment needed, tricks and techniques for reduction and fixation, and an overview of postoperative management, complications and results.

Description : Seeing is believing. This is the title of a new campaign promoted by the International Agency for Prevention of Blindness to raise funds to help tackle avoidable loss of sight in poorly developed countries, truly an admirable initiative. This book could have used a similar leitmotiv: if you see what happens inside of a joint, you will be able to believe in your patient’s symptoms. But it would not be right. Arthroscopy is not out there just to make a diagnosis; it was not developed just to certify that the patient’s complaints are based on something physical. Arthroscopy was introduced to help patients, to make our treatments more reliable, to have better control of our p- cedures. It is merely a tool, indeed, but a marvelous one which nobody should und- score among all surgical options we have when it comes to solving wrist trauma. Seeing is understanding. This could be another leitmotiv for these authors’ c- paign to get more hand surgeons to incorporate arthroscopy in their practices. Certainly, mastering these newly developed techniques help understanding the patient’s problems. But again, that statement would also be misleading for not always what we see through the scope is the real cause of dysfunction. The enemy may be outside of the capsular enclosure. Indeed, arthroscopy provides lots of useful inf- mation, but the surgeon need not accept biased interpretations of the patient’s pr- lem based only on what appears on the screen.
