Product information An Evidence-Based Approach to the Fingertip Diseases

An Evidence-Based Approach to the Fingertip Diseases is the first textbook written for all surgeons and physicians to help them understand normal fingertips’ anatomy, embryology, histopathology, and microbiology. The authors have written lucidly with illustrative diagrams and pictures to narrate the nuances of the fingertip and its pathology.

There are various studies and publications about fingertip injuries and amputations. The book editor J. Terrence Jose Jerome has written a chapter on surgical anatomy and classification of fingertip injuries. This chapter gives a clear understanding of amputations based on anatomical structures and assists in the treatment plan for surgeons.

Infections of the fingertip are a vital topic for learning and effective treatment. A chapter has been dedicated to discussing bacterial, fungal, and other infections of the fingertip. Surgical treatment of these infections in the subsequent chapter briefly discusses the principles, techniques, procedures, and outcomes. Chapters on the management of fingertip amputations comprises advanced state-of-the-art techniques and different reconstructive options for the surgeons to refresh and the aspirants to master from the beginning. The range of management includes conservative, reposition flaps, reconstructive flaps, microsurgery, and super microsurgery, and all components of the therapeutic armamentarium as the surgeon progresses to expert status. Dedicated chapters on thumb injuries, children’s fingertip anomalies and injuries, fractures, dislocations of the fingertip, benign and malignant tumors, connective tissue disorders, rehabilitation, splints, therapy, and medico-legal aspects of the fingertip precisely lend the book.

Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats. For both formats, you need software to display the documents on your reading device. This software is not part of the e-book download.

What is the PDF format?
Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.

Is an Internet connection required to read an e-book?
An Internet connection is required only to download the e-book to the reader. Once the download is complete, you can view and read the e-book without an Internet connection.

Are e-books copy-protected?
E-books from Thieme Publishing Group are provided with DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection from Vitalsource

On how many devices can I read the e-book?
You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Can I exchange/return an e-book?
E-books are products that are not suitable for return due to their nature. Just like downloads of other electronic files (movies, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
