Microsurgical techniques are widely used in the field of orthopaedics. This book addresses all aspects of orthopaedic microsurgery, from development of the principles to their applications. Replantation of fingers, hands and extremity parts are well summarized by highly experienced microsurgical surgeons. The methods for tissue transplantation and microsurgical reconstruction of tissue defects, which have been proved to be successful tools for saving severely injured extremities, were developed by experienced orthopaedic surgeons in cooperation with plastic surgeons. Injuries to peripheral nerves and the brachial plexus are also discussed extensively in this monograph. All illustrations and tables were meticulously selected and are easy to understand. The book was written for all microsurgeons who work in the fields of orthopaedics, plastic and hand surgery.
