American Society for Surgery of the Hand Audio-Visual Library
The American Society for Surgery of the Hand announces the first videotapes produced by the Audio- Visual Library. The objective is to provide a source of audio-visual material of surgical procedures, rehabilitation techniques, social work practices for the physician, nurse, physical and occupational therapist, and social worker. The following programs are now available:
Topic 1: Hanno Millesi, M.D.
Peripheral nerve grafting and results (1 hour) Peripheral nerve grafting: Demonstration of technique (1 hour)
This exceptional videotape consists of two parts. Using photographs from his own collection, the author demonstrates various points. Part I is the presentation of the clinical and experimental work on peripheral nerve grafts. Part II is a demonstration of the author' s technique of nerve grafting as done under the microscope.
Topic 2: Erik Moberg, M.D.
Tendon transfers in the quadriplegic hand (1 hour)
This program is unique . Prof. Moberg 's lecture is the most extensive study of surgical techniques and treatment of the quadriplegic upper extremity. No one else could have produced such a comprehensive review of this subject. This is a rare opportunity to see an unusual and important contribution to surgery of the hand .
Topic 3: Joseph H. Boyes, M.D. Flexor tendon grafting (20 minutes)
Dr. Boyes narrates this demonstration of each phase of the operative technique and the postoperative management of a digital flexor tendon graft. The operation was by Dr. Herbert Stark and the photography by Dr. Robert Watanabe .
Topic 4: Harry J. Buncke, M.D.
Microvascular surgery: History and technique (35 minutes) Microvascular surgery: Clinical case examples (30 minutes) Microvascular surgery: Demonstration of technique (1 hour)
104 THE JOURNAL OF HAND SURGERY January, 1978
Dr. Buncke begins by briefly reviewing the history and techniques of microvascular surgery. In part II he demonstrates experiences of surgeons throughout the world . In part III, as the film records the operating field, the viewer receives from Dr. Buncke an intimate experience in experimental microvascular surgery.
Topic 5: Harold E. Kleinert, M.D. Repair of flexor tendon injuries (1 hour)
This videotape records a discussion of flexor tendon injuries and the methods of repair. By diagrams and selected cases , the viewer is given an understanding of the principles involved in the management of one of the most difficult problems in the treatment of the injured hand.
Topic 6: Harold E. Kleinert, M.D.
Replantation techniques: Indications and contraindications (1 hour) This unusual lecture presents the techniques of replantation of the amputated extremity and revascularization of the partially severed extremity. Drawing from an experience over many years, the author discusses the indications and contraindications for replantation .
Topic 7: Guy Pulvertaft, M.Chir. Treatment of the mutilating hand injury (1 hour) Mr. Pulvertaft, from his extensive experience, has developed a classification of the mutilating hand injuries, which he illustrates with diagrams . Photographs of representative cases taken before and after operation demonstrate unusual surgical technique.
Topic 8: Dieter Buck-Gramcko, M.D.
Surgical correction of congenital deformities (1 hour) By use of photographs, the author demonstrates his special technique for treatment of some of the frequently encountered congenital anomalies of the hand. One of the high points of thi s presentation is the demonstration of an original technique of pollicization for congenital absence of the thumb .
Topic 9: Raymond M. Curtis, M.D. Capsulectomy of the proximal interphalangeal joint (20 minutes)
The author presents his original approach to the diag-

Vol. 3 No. I January, 1978
nosis and treatment of the stiff proximal interphalangeal joint. The technique of capsulectomy of the joint is demonstrated by a film of an operation on a patient. The anatomy of the digit as well as the anatomy of the joint itself is shown by an unusual diagrammatic technique.
Topic 10: Adrian E. Flatt, M.D.
Functional anatomy of the hand and wrist (25 minutes)
In this lecture, the author describes the function of the various anatomical parts of the human hand. He demonstrates, by integrating this knowledge, that one can properly reconstruct the injured or diseased hand.
Topic 11: Ronald L. Linscheid, M.D.
Traumatic instability of the wrist (40 minutes)
The wrist, because of its complex two row structure, is particularly susceptible to collapse deformities and instabilities following intracarpal fractures, dislocations, and sprains. The author presents anatomic considerations, biomechanical bases, and the diagnostic clues to this spectrum of injuries. Illustrative cases with their treatment are presented.
Format. Most programs are in color on * inch video cassette tapes.
How to obtain the programs
Rental. Rental is $25 per topic for a I week period. All tapes are sent at library rate; therefore, allow at least 10 days for shipping. Tapes are sent within 2 working days of receipt of request. No more than one topic may be rented at a time.

Grants for hand research
The American Society for Surgery of the Hand provides grants-in-aid not to exceed $3,000 per year for investigations concerned with the improvement and function of the deformed or disabled hand.
This money will be used in the form of "seed grants" to develop pilot or demonstration projects to the point where they might attract more substantial money for larger granting agencies.
