Product information Carpal Ligament Injuries and Instability

An up-to-date, instructional resource on open and arthroscopic management of wrist injuries

Major advances have been made in the field of wrist surgery, including the use of arthroscopy and better rehabilitation protocols. In addition, understanding of proprioception has changed conservative management, often preventing surgery. Nevertheless, the assessment and management of a myriad of wrist dysfunctions remains daunting, due in part to complicated anatomy and mechanics and a lack of high-quality prospective clinical studies. Carpal Ligament Injuries and Instability: FESSH Instructional Course Book 2023 edited by renowned hand surgeons Fernando Corella, Carlos Heras-Palou, and Riccardo Luchetti covers the investigation, diagnosis, staging, and management of ligament injuries and the latest open and arthroscopic techniques to treat carpal instabilities.

The first two sections lay a solid foundation, with eight chapters encompassing anatomy and biomechanics, clinical and arthroscopic examination of the wrist, and imaging. Section three includes 10 chapters on scapholunate injury and instability, with discussion of open and arthroscopic repair, reinforcement, reconstruction, and resection techniques. Section four features five chapters on lunotriquetral injury and instability, including acute and chronic open and arthroscopic injury management. Section five includes four chapters on extrinsic ligament injuries, from perilunate injuries to staging and treatment of nondissociative proximal row instability. The book concludes with a final section comprising two chapters on other types of injuries.

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.

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.
