This book uniquely provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of congenital and acquired deformities of the pediatric shoulder girdle, a field barely covered in existing books.
It not only addresses bone deformities, but also examines the most important soft tissue alterations, e.g. muscular torticollis, thoracic outlet syndrome, shoulder dyskinesia, as well as brachial plexus birth injury and syndrome-related shoulder disorders. Following a consistent and treatment-oriented structure for each topic, leading international experts present epidemiology, key points in clinical, radiological diagnosis and treatment options, technical tips and tricks, and pertinent literature outcomes.
Filling an existing gap, this book offers a timely and up-to-date resource for pediatric orthopedic fellows and attending surgeons, as well as for general orthopedists, primary care doctors and physiotherapists with an interest in the pediatric upper limb.
