Description and Table of Contents


The editors' aim has been to provide both the trainee and practising hand surgeon with sufficient knowledge to assess and treat most problems. The role of the third editor (an anatomist) has been to link an understanding of surgical anatomy to the requirements of operative procedure. Each clinical chapter now begins with a section on the relevant anatomy. The text focuses on techniques rather than a mass of operative detail; new advances covered in greater depth include microsurgical techniques and vascular injuries.
