BooknewsAbout half of the major knee operations in the US involve total replacement with an artificial joint, but the basic design of such implants has not changed since the 1970s. Noting recent bone-cell research that has led to new procedures and to the treatment of injuries that previously required total replacement, 30 papers discuss issues in design, wear, fixation, patellar replacement, surgical techniques, revisions, alternative therapies, and biological substitutes.
