The state-of-the-art resource on hand and wrist tendon surgery from renowned global masters
Surgical management of disorders impacting hand and wrist tendons is one of the most challenging and exacting aspects of hand surgery. Tendon Disorders of the Hand and Wrist: IFSSH/FESSH Instructional Course Book 2022 is edited by well-known hand surgeons Dean E. Boyce, Grey Giddins, and David J. Shewring. The book was written as the accompanying text for the instructional course at the 2022 Joint Congress of the International Federation of Societies for Surgery of the Hand (IFSSH), the Federation of European Societies for Surgery of the Hand (FESSH), and the International Federation of Societies for Hand Therapy (IFSHT). Although practice inevitably evolves, this comprehensive book should serve as a useful guide and definitive reference for years to come.
The book is organized in six sections: Basic Science; Traumatic Injuries to the Extensor Tendons; Traumatic Injuries to the Flexor Tendons; Enthesopathies, Infection, and Inflammatory Problems; Pediatric Problems; and Tendon and Nerve Transfer. Chapters cover the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and surgical and nonsurgical management of the full spectrum of disorders and conditions. Disorder-specific chapters include indications for surgery, disorder classification, discussion of impacted tendons and muscles, diverse transfer and reconstruction techniques, and in many cases, the author’s preferred surgical procedure.
- Contributions from an impressive group of global masters in hand surgery detail proven and preferred techniques and approaches

- A wealth of high-quality, four-color illustrations and operative photos enhance the understanding of impacted anatomy and techniques
This is a one-stop resource on the surgical management of degenerative, developmental, and traumatic hand and wrist tendon disorders. It is an essential reference for trainee and practicing hand surgeons to improve their surgical skills and patient outcomes.
