Fractures of the distal radius are extraordinarily common, but can be complex to treat. This book provides an in-depth understanding of a comprehensive approach to the management of these fractures and their complications. The authors, world renown experts in the field, present practical, clinical information from their extensive experience in the treatment of these fractures. Topics include the authors' classification as well as decision making and tactics in the conservative and operative management of all types of radius fractures: bending fractures of the metaphysis, shearing fractures of the joint surface, compression fractures of the joint surface, avulsion fractures, radio-carpal fractures and dislocation, combined fractures, high velocity injury, and malunions. In addition, comprehensive chapters are included on surgical technique and approach as well as on complications. With over 650 illustrations, this is the definitive volume on these challenging fractures, their complete treatment and management of complications
