Book Description Leinen. Philadelphia, Toronto, J.B. Lippincott Company, 1970, 8°, XII, 727 pp., zahlr. abb., orig. Leinenband. Preface to the Fifth Edition: "In the 26 years since the first edition of Sterling Bunncll's (1882-1957) Surgery of the Hand, interest in this field of surgery has spread throughout the world, and numerous articles. many monographs and even a few books on this subject have been published. New materials have been developed; improvements have been made in Instruments and suture material; some new operative procedures have been reported and some older ones rediscovered. Diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis involving the hand, are being treated surgically to a greater extent; others, such as Dupuytren s contracture, are being handled more conservatively. Additional war time experiences have let to improvements in the care of wounds and stimulated the study of tissue repair. More emphasis is now on reconstruction than on just the treatment of infections, and improvements in the technic of vascular repair have encouraged the replantations of amputated extremities. - - The current literature of a surgical specialty deals in most part with the description of unusual lesions, some new application of a treatment. or collections of similar cases. No attempt has been made to include all of this work in this edition because some developments will be temporary, like fads in fashion, and others have not yet been tested sufficiently to warrant inclusion in a textbook. In Order that the reader have a basis for evaluation of such current material, emphasis is placed on the basic principles of care and reconstruction. The aim of this edition is to emphasize the principles that Sterling Bunnell set out in the earlier editions and to illustrate the results that can be obtained in following these principles and using proven methods. Unless otherwise specifically noted the procedures or operations described in this edition are those used by Dr. Bunnell, the editor and their immediate associates, and thus represent a combined experience of many years. Dealing entirely with patients in private practice and with direct control of preoperative and postoperative care, a retrospective study of detailed records was possible, which confirmed the validity of the principles followed and the methods used. - - As in the first edition, it is assumed that the reader possesses an adequate knowledge of the anatomy of the upper extremity and the basic principles of surgery, and is aware of the tendency of the subspecialist to forget that it is the whole patient being treated and not just a part. For this reason, the reader will not be burdened with what should be common knowledge to all surgeons, or what should be known to every plastic, orthopedic or neurosurgeon. - - The principles of surgery stressed here have been derived from all sources and applied to the specific problem of the upper extremity. The problem of the crippled hand is a composite one, involving many tissues and over-lapping the tissue specialties. There is no division of surgery of the hand into plastic, orthopedic or neurosurgery. It is the function of the hand that is to be restored, and the surgeon must be equipped to deal with the composite problem. - - Time and experience have shown that Dr. Bunnell's method of study of the crippled hand, his understanding of function, his evaluation of the needs and the logical methods of reconstruction which he developed can be regarded as a basis for a systematic approach to the problems of surgery of the hand. .
