Thoroughly updated and expanded into two volumes, the Fourth Edition of Joint Replacement Arthroplasty provides comprehensive coverage of primary and revision arthroplasty procedures for the upper and lower extremities. This definitive text is written by world-renowned experts from the Mayo Clinic and other leading institutions and includes data from the Mayo Clinic's extensive patient records from 1969 through 2009. This first volume covers the elbow and shoulder and includes online access to 30 chapters on the basic science that supports joint replacement.

Sections on each joint cover anatomy and surgical approaches, navigation, biomechanics, prosthesis design, primary arthroplasty, complications, revision arthroplasty, and alternative procedures. This edition includes more practical advice on diagnosing and managing the underlying problems and more step-by-step operative guidelines.

The companion website allows you to search across both Volume 1 and Volume 2, which covers the hip, knee, and ankle. The online-only basic science chapters provide thorough coverage of materials used for joint replacements and management of patients with various medical conditions.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Riad Barmada, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is volume 1 of the fourth edition of book on joint replacement arthroplasties of the elbow and shoulder that covers basic science, surgical techniques, and results. A second volume is planned on the hip, knee, and ankle.
Purpose: The purpose is to present new concepts in prosthetic design and techniques.
Audience: The audience includes orthopedic surgeons and residents.
Features: The book includes access to a website with an online version of the text as well as basic science chapters that are only available online. The first of the two sections of the print book is dedicated to the elbow and addresses anatomy, biomechanics, surgical approaches, partial replacement, total replacement, and complications, all with excellent descriptions of surgical techniques accompanied by illustrations and photographs. Section II is dedicated to the shoulder and, as with the elbow section, all related anatomy, approaches, and prosthetic designs are discussed. What are very helpful are the discussions of special considerations and techniques for specific diseases and separate chapters on the pathological disorders of the elbow and shoulder.
Assessment: This is an outstanding publication, very easy to read, that provides practical and helpful information on elbow and shoulder replacement from experts.
