Trauma, in the current context, is the major factor in the intra-articular fractures.

The new principle is to provide relative stability, preferably with indirect reduction for the metaphyseal components. All practical surgical options are included with reasons why that particular surgical option for that particular fracture type would be ideal. The surgical options are detailed, including drawings, clinical photos, surgical techniques, equipment needed, pictures and illustrations of the anatomy and operative exposures, techniques and tricks for reduction and fixation and then, equally important, an overview of postoperative management, complications and results. Each chapter then concludes with an illustrative case and references and, even in some cases, a list of tips and pearls.
