The Elbow: Traumatic Lesions

The second volume of Current Concepts in Orthopaedic Surgery analyzes the various aspects of traumatic lesions of the elbow, including diseases of the soft tissues and the rare lesions of the musculocutaneous nerve. The focus of attention, however, is on fractures, and the short and long term results of treatment. Some aspects of traumatic lesions of the elbow demand particular consideration because of the long term residual effects, the complexity of treatment, and the interest that recent therapeutical progress has stimulated. Each chapter gives an honest account of the authors' personal experience and contains a critical evaluation of the results.
