There is a proverb that “hand surgery without a tourniquet is like repairing a clock in a barrel full of dark ink.”
Operating minus a sound fundamental knowledge of anatomy can be matched to “stirring around in the soup.” Classic anatomy instruction includes only a fraction of the area of hand surgery: bones, vessels, muscles/ligaments, and nerves. The many different connective-tissue structures are frequently only briefly highlighted. The complex interaction of the many structures remains a mystery to most. Hand and Wrist Anatomy and Biomechanics: A Comprehensive Guide (PDF) presents the specialty of applied anatomy and is planned for medical professionals involved with the hand and its functionality: hand surgeons, plastic surgeons, trauma specialists, orthopaedists, occupational therapists, and physiotherapists.
- Part 1 talks about the anatomy and functional anatomy of the hand
- Part 2 is devoted to the surface anatomy of the structures of the wrist, forearm, and hand
Nearly 150 illustrations, anatomical drawings, and photos of anatomy in vivo.
NOTE: The product only includes the ebook, Hand and Wrist Anatomy and Biomechanics: A Comprehensive Guide in PDF. No access codes are included.
