Product information Tendon Disorders of the Hand and Wrist

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.

Key Features

  • Tips and tricks throughout the text provide guidance on preventing complications and improving outcomes
  • 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.

What is an e-book?

An e-book is an electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file. The content does not differ from the printed edition of 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.
