    Summary: This book provides a complete overview of the various types of fractures around the knee. Each chapter addresses anatomical key features, surgical procedures, postoperative regimes and complication strategies. International knee experts discuss how to improve nailing techniques as well as pearls and pitfalls for each type of knee fracture. Current clinical outcomes are included throughout and the authors recommend their preferred therapeutic approach and salvage measures if required. Knee Fractures is an essential, go-to resource for orthopaedic surgeons dealing with the total spectrum of simple and complex knee fractures in daily clinical practice.
