Clinical Mechanics of the Hand, 3rd Edition covers all the basic elements of the forces that result in movement of the hand and those that limit or hinder movement. Drs. Brand and Hollister quantify those elements in a practical way so that surgeons and therapists can judge their own measure of success or failure as they try to restore flexibility, strength, sensibility, and beauty to damaged hands. This book covers terminology, theory, how the hand works, and how to surgically treat various conditions of the hand.Biografía del autor:
The lead author, Dr. Paul Brand, is well-known in the specialized field of hand surgery and is one of the world?s experts in the mechanics of the hand. This book culminates an extensive career for Dr. Brand. Of the first edition of this book, Dr. Robert Chase, a very famous surgeon in his own right, wrote in the Annals of Plastic Surgery ?As professional, we owe Paul Brand another debt of gratitude for his continuing prodigious effort, offering us new understanding and, I hope, ever improving care for the hand disabled patient.?
Dr. Anne Hollister trained under Dr. Brand and has continued research in mechanics of the hand. Now at the Louisiana State University School of Medicine, she is one of the few specialists in this important field. She has worked on such projects as the first artificial replacementjoint for the finger. Dr. Hollister brings most of the changes to this thirdedition.
