MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:



Hear the authors discuss Minimally Invasive Plate Osteosynthesis.


This textbook offers a comprehensive view of all aspects
of minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO). The second expanded
edition includes the expert knowledge of AO surgeons from all around
the world. It not only provides basic concepts and the latest clinical and
basic scientific research, but guides the interested surgeon through the
crucial steps of MIPO application in the different anatomical
regions.

Enhanced by clear photographs, x-rays, MRls, CT scans, and
detailed illustrations, the book comprises two sections:

  • Section 1, Principles, covers the principles of MIPO
    surgery as well as education in MIPO.
  • Section 2, Cases, encompasses all anatomical regions. For each region
    there is a comprehensive introduction covering general aspects of MIPO
    techniques regarding indications, preoperative planning, and positioning,
    before indirect and direct reduction and fixation techniques are presented.
    Case examples then allow the reader to follow each procedure in a thorough,
    step-by-step manner. Additional chapters on pediatric and fragility
    fractures, special indications, and implant removal conclude this second
    section.

The main concept behind the MIPO technique is to deal with soft
tissue and bone in a way that does not add additional trauma to the
fracture site. The bone must be accessed through soft-tissue windows
away from the fracture site. Direct reduction maneuvers, if needed, should
be executed to leave only small footprints at the fracture area and
reduce disturbance of fracture healing.
