Nirmal C. Tejwani

Comprised exclusively of more than 20 clinical cases covering common fractures of and around the elbow, this concise, practical casebook will provide clinicians with the best real-world strategies to properly manage open and closed fractures, dislocations and nonunions of the distal humerus and proximal radius and ulna. Each chapter is a case that opens with a unique clinical presentation with associated radiology, 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 the surgical management of intra- and extra-articular fractures of the distal humerus, coronal shear, coronoid and olecranon fractures, the “terrible triad,” Monteggia fractures, and complications, among others.
Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Fractures of the Elbow: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists confronted with these common injuries of the elbow.
