Describing a broad collection of cases on complex fractures and dislocations, this inaugural volume in the Master Cases Series provides new insights and perspectives for managing this challenging trauma. The book covers the sequential steps needed for total patient care, including evaluation, radiographic assessment, diagnostic tests, surgical management, and post-operative care. You will also find dozens of tips for implementing surgical procedures in the upper and lower extremities.
