Surgery of Repair as Applied to Hand Injuries

Surgery of Repair as Applied to Hand Injuries This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This book presents methods for management of soft tissue injuries of the hand that have been proved through years of experience to provide the optimum environment for restoration of function in the hand. The authors have purposefully omitted more recent techniques that have not been thoroughly tested by time and use. The book is organized around actual patient encounter and management rather than anatomically dissecting the hand and discussing each part individually. Since management is limited primarily to soft tissue repairs, this approach provides an excellent presentation. The book is divided into five sections. The initial chapters are concerned with the incidence and social and economic considerations of hand injuries. Properly, one is led through the surgical anatomy and the organization of the operating room to provide optimum treatment and examination and appraisal of the recently injured hand. The primary thrust here is toward evaluation of tendon and nerve function. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Surgery American Medical Association
