Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Mark Gonzalez, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: The book is a compendium of papers presented at an international conference on elbow endoprosthesis and nonendoprosthetic reconstruction in Dusseldorf in March 1994.
Purpose: The papers are written by internationally renowned elbow surgeons to present their personal experience and update the information in the field of elbow arthroplasty.
Audience: The book is written for orthopedic surgeons who have a special interest in elbow surgery. It is an advanced book and would not be as interesting to the general orthopedic surgeon. The authors are international and have excellent reputations.
Features: The illustration quality is excellent. The diagrams are clear and instructive. The references are adequate. The table of contents is useful. Because the book is a compendium of papers, there is no index.
Assessment: As a compendium of papers, the book represents the experience of a distinguished and international group of authors with various aspects of total elbow replacement and elbow reconstruction. It is a cutting edge update that is oriented toward practitioners with a special interest in elbow surgery.
