Common Hand Injuries and Infections

A Practical Approach to Early Treatment

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Carter's COMMON HAND INJURIES AND INFECTIONS was originally published in 1983 and reviewers praised it as "timeless", "the best presentation of this material ever written.” The primary audience has always been the Emergency Physician because the first doctor who sees the patient with a hand injury most determines the final outcome.
However, Orthopaedic and Plastic Surgery residents have found this material useful when beginning to learn about the hand. Practical methods presented have been tested over the author's almost 40-year experience in practicing and teaching Hand Surgery.
The updated 2nd edition in electronic format contains full-color clinical photographs, color movies and a new chapter on hand injuries in children. Like the first edition, the 2nd includes a color atlas of hand and forearm anatomy for easy reference. It is filled with cartoons and line drawings produced just for this book. The electronic format makes possible even easier use of the book just as it was intended - as an instant reference.
Emergency Physicians don’t choose their career because they love hand surgery, but soon realize they must deal with hand patients daily. In one study, 10% of their patients had a hand injury. Every year over 18,000,000 Americans consult a doctor for hand or upper limb problem. (Kelsey's, 1997) Sadly, US medical schools offer little if any instruction in basic evaluation and early treatment of hand problems. COMMON HAND INJURIES AND INFECTIONS addresses this travesty and assumes no previous training in Hand Surgery. It teaches the student skills to effectively evaluate and treat these patients with confidence.
The author plans to donate royalties from the sale of electronic 2nd edition to the Charles E. Seay, Jr. Hand Surgery Service of the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, a pediatric orthopedic hospital known for patient care, education and research in Dallas, Texas for almost 100 years.
