Featuring over 800 full-color illustrations, this atlas demonstrates the surgical approaches used in orthopaedics and provides a surgeon's-eye view of the relevant anatomy.
Each chapter details the techniques and pitfalls of a surgical approach, gives a clear preview of anatomic landmarks and incisions, and highlights potential dangers of superficial and deep dissection. This edition has been expanded to include arthroscopic approaches to the knee and shoulder and minimal access approaches for inserting intramedullary nails into the humerus, femur, and tibia. Many illustrations have been reworked to reflect the trend toward preserving soft tissue and blood supply to bones, and most illustrations have been redone in full color.
