Microsurgical techniques are widely used in the field of orthopedics. This book addresses all aspects of orthopedic microsurgery, from the development of the principles to their applications. 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 orthopedic surgeons in cooperation with plastic surgeons. Injuries to peripheral nerves and the brachial plexus are also discussed extensively in this monograph.
