Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Riad Barmada, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book contains the basic biological and mechanical considerations of materials used in joint replacement and their influence on clinical applications.
Purpose: This is a multidisciplinary presentation of research by basic scientists and clinicians to disseminate the information to a wide audience of professionals interested in problems related to joint replacement.
Audience: The book is directed at orthopedic surgeons and residents-in-training, rheumatologists, radiologists, and scientists involved in biomaterial research.
Features: This book contains illustrations of good quality, very helpful in demonstrating the findings discussed in the text.
Assessment: This book is attractive, well organized, and discusses several subjects related to joint replacement and the biological responses to the material used under clinical application and in experimental models. Most importantly, it explains the causes of failure in joint replacement. The information is presented by experts, clinicians, and scientists from several disciplines and from many countries all over the world.

During the seventh annual Bristol-Myers Squibb/Zimmer Orthopaedic Research Symposium, clinical, scientific, and regulatory experts devoted attention to biological materials, mechanical responses, and product design of orthopaedic implants. Following an introductory section that presents the keynote addresses, this proceedings volume is divided into sections covering the cement interface; ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene; particulate metals; the interface--uncemented devices; the articulation; adverse and toxic effects; manufacturing, funding, and regulatory issues; new approaches--clinical and basic research; and closing summaries and future directions.
