Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Riad Barmada, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This publication contains the papers presented at the Bristol Myers Squibb Zimmer Orthopaedic Research Symposium in November 1994. The papers cover several issues related to biomaterials, design, techniques, and clinical implications of total knee replacement arthroplasty.
Purpose: The book provides easy access in one publication to up-to-date information on basic and clinical principles related to knee replacement orthopedics, but is not sufficiently detailed for an in-depth review of these topics.
Audience: It is a good source of information for orthopedic surgeons and residents and for basic scientists involved in joint replacement.
Features: These presentations are of good quality and the presenters are well recognized authorities in their field.
Assessment: This book provides information about many subjects relating to biomaterials, design, and techniques of knee replacement arthroplasty. Although it does not provide a detailed review, it does provide the reader with easy access to relatively current information.
