The overwhelming response to the first edition and the pressing needs of practicing orthopedic surgeons, plastic surgeons, hand surgeons, and microvascular surgeons have triggered the second edition of K-Wiring: Principles and Techniques. Various case scenarios with updated indications and techniques are included in this efficient revision of the book.
We have added plenty of new, quality illustrations, covering most common and uncommon situations. Everyone who reads this book will be able to treat every type of extremity fracture that can be treated with K-wires. Direct and indirect fixations are shown as examples of K-wiring.
There are also videos that show common orthopedic K-wire procedures so that the surgeon can gain a better understanding of the important aspects of an operation.
In each chapter, general principles are provided with clear concepts and tips for performing the procedure.
There have been revisions to the chapters on hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, shoulder, and foot; the biggest revisions have been made to the hand and wrist fractures, which have been rewritten with clinical examples for almost every scenario imaginable.
Several chapters address pediatric fractures and K-wire application.
