The scaphoid by David J. Slutsky, Joseph F Slade III

By David J. Slutsky, Joseph F Slade III

The Scaphoid brings jointly in a single definitive reference each point of carpal scaphoid harm remedy. that includes insights from pioneers within the box, its entire assurance extends from usual open strategies to state of the art percutaneous equipment and mini-incision techniques.

Each bankruptcy covers a special technique, starting with a dialogue of proper anatomical concerns, symptoms, contraindications, and power results. The professional authors then current step by step demonstrations of every surgical method complemented through in actual fact categorized illustrations that support readers to imagine the explicit method whereas reinforcing their realizing of the elemental ideas of scaphoid fracture fixation.


  • Comprehensive details on arthroscopic bone
    grafting, vascularized grafts, salvage approaches, a number of the different types of
    implants, and masses extra
  • 600 bright illustrations -- together with three hundred in full-color
    -- increase the textual content
  • Concise, narrated video clips on an accompanying DVD depict
    key fixation systems defined within the ebook, together with percutaneous, mini-open
    and arthroscopic assisted scaphoid screw insertion, volar and dorsal vascularized scaphoid bone grafts, and more

This hugely sensible scientific reference is an integral source for each resident, fellow, or clinician in hand surgical procedure, orthopedic trauma surgical procedure, or plastic surgery.

5 These authors concluded that although rotation and compression or distraction did occur, the primary forces acting on the distal scaphoid were bending forces resulting in a displaced scaphoid fracture in a flexed and pronated position. 6 Scaphoid fractures are also susceptible to shearing forces (translation) at the fracture site. Scaphoid fractures have been proven to heal with casting, but debate continues as to the length of time and whether cast immobilization should be long- or short-arm.

14 These types of research models have not addressed the actual forces that lead to fracture displacement: bending and shearing. As a result, they primarily provide information on the amount of compression obtained at the fracture interface, rather than an estimation of true fracture site stability. 0 Ϯ 17 a Compression strength of scaphoid screws has been tested in multiple sawbone or cadaveric settings. This table summarizes many of these studies. Compression strength is in newtons. rigidity of scaphoid screw constructs.
