Product Description

The wrist is a complex structure, and providers caring for hand and upper extremity conditions need to have an understanding of the wrist examination and provocative maneuvers for conditions that are encountered. Fractures, tendonitis, arthritis, and instabilities are all commonly encountered, and the provider should have an idea of the diagnosis based on clinical examination and use imaging as needed to confirm or stage a diagnosis. (Plast. Reconstr. Surg. 147: 284e, 2021.)
