Congenital Anomalies of the Upper Extremity: Etiology and by Donald R. Laub Jr.

By Donald R. Laub Jr.

Written via best specialists within the fields of pediatrics, orthopedic surgical procedure and plastic and reconstructive hand surgical procedure, Congenital Anomalies of the higher Extremity encompasses the present wisdom of genetic and molecular explanations of and surgical and non-surgical therapy for, deformities of the hand. The bookcovers the numerous adaptations of congenital anomaly encountered within the scientific surroundings. Embryology, type, prevalence and anesthesia concerns are mentioned first, by means of actual medication, rehabilitation and remedy administration, together with mental issues, for kids dwelling with those stipulations. disasters of formation and differentiation of the hands and hand plate, duplication, and overgrowth, in addition to different generalized anomalies, are then awarded intimately, together with symbrachydactyly, syndactyly, Apert syndrome, polydactyly, amniotic band syndrome and Madelung deformity, between others. whole with considerable photos and illustrations to lead the clinician in getting ready for and appearing the mandatory remedies, this is often a vital ebook for hand surgeons, orthopedists and plastic surgeons.
