Contemporary Perspectives in Distal Radius Fracture Fixation
Wrist fractures, those injuries involving the distal radius, the distal ulna, and the joints about these bones, are some of the most commonly sustained fractures in any age group. With such a large number of injuries encountered, the effort to return patients to their normal activities has driven remarkable changes in treatment methods. UW physicians Matt Lyons, Jeffrey Friedrich, Douglas Hanel, and Jerry Huang discuss the history of wrist fractures and how the recently updated AAOS guidelines a

This unit considers two ideas: that health is an ever-present factor in our lives, and that health is something difficult to define. But how can we say that health is everywhere if it is so mysterious? How do we recognise health if it so difficult to define? There are no easy answers to these questions! In this unit we explore this paradox, not just because it is a fascinating dilemma but because understanding health in all its multifaceted complexity is a prerequisite to working for health in i
