MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Comprised exclusively of nearly two dozen clinical cases covering fractures of the tibia, this concise, practical casebook will provide orthopedic surgeons with the best real-world strategies to properly manage injuries to the tibial shaft, plateau and pilon, as well as deformities, nonunions and bone loss. Each chapter is a case that opens with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management techniques used to treat it, as well as the case outcome and clinical pearls. Cases included illustrate different management strategies for Schatzker (I-VI) tibial plateau fractures, plates and screws for proximal tibia fracture, intramedullary nailing for midshaft and distal tibial fracture, and the use of Ex-Fix with open tibia and distal pilon fracture, in addition to Masquelet bone grafting and modified clamshell osteotomy for acute shaft fracture. Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Fracture of the Tibia: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons confronted with various injuries to the shin.

Discusses the surgical approaches to open and closed fractures of the tibial plateau, shaft and pilon as well as deformities, nonunions and bone loss
