Overview

The book presents an overview of available Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery (CAOS) solutions to assist with adult reconstructive hip and knee procedures. The benefjits of CAOS in clinical practice include improved planning, increased accuracy, intraoperative information and guidance, and the potential to enable less or minimally invasive surgery without loss of accuracy.

The book reflects the current state of the art in computer integrated surgery, with the emphasis on clinically tested systems and procedures. The application of technologies such as surgical navigation and robotic surgery, medical imaging, surgical planning and stimulation in total or partial hip and knee reconstruction procedures is presented. The range of currently employed approaches is covered, spanning from active robotics to navigation based medical images - either preoperative or inreoperative, and image-free navigation.

The first part of the book offers the clinical rationale for the use of CAOS procedures and describes the basic technological building blocks of such procedures and systems. The second part of the book describes specific applications in total hip replacement, total and unicompartmental knee replacement, osteotomies around the hip and knee, knee ligament reconstruction and hip and knee trauma. The clinical goal, the technological approach, and the clinical results are outlined for every application.

The book is intended for practicing orthopaedic surgeons, fellows, residents-in-training and medical students interested in the latest technological developments in computer assisted surgery as well as for engineers and developers interested in learning more about the interaction of advanced technology with orthopaedic clinical practice.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Riad Barmada, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This publication provides general views on the principles, application, and available instrumentations for computer assisted and robotic surgery of the hip and knee.
Purpose: The purpose is to present and assess a relatively new surgical method.
Audience: Orthopedic surgeons are the intended audience.
Features: The authors begin with a brief review of the history of computer-assisted surgery of the hip and knee and the need and benefit for using this method. Then they discuss application of this technique in hip and knee reconstructive procedures, including prosthetic replacement, osteotomies, and ligamentation reconstruction.
Assessment: Some reconstructive surgical procedures of the hip and knee, such as osteotomies and joint replacement, require precision to obtain good results and avoid late complications and early failure. This book contains up-to-date information on relatively new surgical techniques that involve the assistance of computers and robotics to guide the surgeon performing the critical portion of hip and knee replacement surgery and accurately positioning the prosthetic components. The use of computer assisted surgery will progress and increase and orthopedic surgeons should be familiar with the terminology and the instrumentation available. This book will provide the needed information. This publication should be available in all orthopedic libraries.
