The incidence of shoulder and elbow fractures has increased over the last 30 years. This is due to an aging population, with joints becoming more arthritic, and because of the increased popularity of contact sports.
The diagnosis and management of these fractures is changing with technological advances in imaging, endoscopy and implantology. This book provides an up-to-date, definitive 'how-to' reference for the diagnosis and management of fractures of both the shoulder and elbow joints.
