This is to be expected, given that the vast . From the reviews: “This is a focused, well-organized book on the normal anatomy, biomechanics, and fracture- dislocations of the wrist. This book is written for practicing surgeons as well as fellows and residents in training who encounter patients with these usually high-energy, relatively uncommon, injuries. Manufacturer: Springer. COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle . Perilunate dislocations and perilunate fracture-dislocations (PLFDs) typically result from high-energy injuries. These injuries are missed clinically and radiographically in up to 25% of cases .Perilunate dislocations and PLFDs typically result from a fall on an outstretched hand in which an axial force is directed on the carpus with the wrist in hyperextension (dorsiflexion), ulnar Cited by:
This work includes nine chapters written by experts in the field of carpal instability. Topics covered include the anatomy of the wrist ligaments, biomechanical studies of carpal injury, diagnosis and treatment of perilunate fracture/dislocations, and postoperative rehabilitation. ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVE. The objectives of this article are to discuss the imaging of carpal dislocations and fracture-dislocations and to review the ligamentous anatomy of the wrist, mechanisms of injury, and routine management of these by: Carpal dislocations and fracture-dislocations are rare, thought to make up % of all wrist injuries, and one in four of these occurs in polytrauma Author: Emmanuel Apergis.

Individual fractures include scaphoid fracture: %. About this book Introduction According to reports in the literature, despite the severe disruption of carpal anatomy, fracture-dislocations of the wrist are missed on clinical and radiographic examination in a high percentage of cases. According to reports in the literature, despite the severe disruption of carpal anatomy, fracture-dislocations of the wrist are missed on clinical and radiographic examination in a high percentage of cases. Orthopedic surgeons’ lack of familiarity with these injuries is one of the factors contributing to failed or delayed : Springer Milan. Multiple fracture dislocations of the carpometacarpal (CMC) joints are rare injuries. The strong ligamentous structures and intricate alignment of the carpal bones readily resist dislocation (1,2).There are numerous case reports and small retrospective studies (3–6) evaluating the treatment and outcome of concurrent CMC fracture dislocations.
