Purpose: The purpose is to offer a review of surgical techniques for operative procedures used to repair cartilage.
Audience: The audience is surgeons who are involved in managing patients with cartilage pathological conditions and injuries, as well as nurses and other operating room assistants.
Features: The 16 chapters present detailed descriptions of each surgical procedure and the special instruments required with outstanding, quality illustrations. The book starts with chapters on cartilage morphology and patient evaluation before moving into the various surgical techniques and implants.
Assessment: The last 20 years have produced a great deal of new information on cartilage injuries, diseases, and degeneration. Many new procedures and implants have been introduced to repair, reconstruct, and produce normal cartilage. This book provides orthopedic surgeons detailed technical instructions on many procedures used in cartilage surgery. Easy to read with informative illustrations, it is a good addition to the orthopedic literature.
