Manual of Fracture Management—Wrist

A new AOTrauma publication exploring the latest techniques and implants in wrist surgery was launched yesterday in the AOWorld Hall during the AO Foundation Davos Courses 2018.

The Manual of Fracture Management—Wrist by editors and experienced AOTrauma faculty Jesse Jupiter, Douglas Campbell, and Fiesky Nunez, explores the management of traumatic and reconstructive problems of the distal radius, distal ulna, and the carpals, the key components of the wrist.

Chair of AOTrauma Education Commission Wa'el Taha congratulated the books editors and thanked them for their enormous and ongoing contributions towards education at the AO.

“10 years ago, AOTrauma produced a highly successful fracture management book on hand and wrist surgery, which was edited by Jesse Jupiter from the USA, but since then there have been tremendous innovations in the world of surgery, with changes in technology and in surgical techniques.”

“So it was decided to update this ground breaking publication, and today it is my honor to launch the new wrist fracture management book, and to congratulate the authors for their outstanding work.”

“I also thank the books editors Jesse, Doug, and Fiesky not just for the development of this publication but for their ongoing commitment towards AO education.”

“Each has a long involvement in producing other AO publications, involvement in developing modules for the AO Surgery Reference, participation in committees and working groups, and continued work as AO course chairs and faculty.”

“We thank them for their long-standing commitment to education at AO and I look forward to their continued involvement in the years ahead.”

Book editors Douglas Campbell and Fiesky Nunez then thanked AOTrauma for their approval and assistance in making the book, and also thanked the AO Education Institute, AO Publishing, and AO Surgery Reference teams for providing valuable resources and support.

The editors then joined Wa'el on stage to cut the ribbon from the first book for sale.
