Covering both acute and chronic trauma and reconstruction, the contributors include insights into anatomy, etiology, nonoperative treatments, surgical techniques, rehabilitation, and outcomes for each structure from the shoulder girdle to the forearm. They offer advice on special situations such as prior surgeries, bone loss, osteopenia, rheumatoid arthritis, infection, instability, stiffness and neurological symptoms, and provide more than 250 clinical photographs, scans, and line drawings detailing diagnostics and procedures. Articles cover such topics as operative treatment of fractures of the clavicle and nonunions, isolated tuberosity fractures, open reduction and internal fixation of proximal humerous fractures, nonunions of the humeral shaft, total elbow arthroplasty and reconstruction to relieve post-traumatic stiffness and instability. Each article include references. This works as a text and also as a professional reference and refresher.
