Designed as a concise guide to the essentials of total knee arthroplasty, as well as revision total knee arthroplasty, the text is ideal for orthopedic residents and surgeons. World-renowned experts cover basic principles and instrumentation, ligament releases, and bone defects. Fixation in total knee arthroplasty, both with cement and cementless, is considered. Complex topics regarding revision arthroplasty are detailed as well, including three-step technique, constrained total knee designs, and two-stage reimplantation for infected total knee arthroplasty. Revision of periprosthetic femur fractures and tibial periprosthetic fractures is also addressed. This practical book is an invaluable reference.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This handbook is a condensed version of Scuderi and Trias' Surgical Techniques in Knee Arthroplasty. The handbook is designed as a convenient technical pocket guide for the surgeon performing total knee arthroplasty.
Purpose: The handbook form of the Surgical Techniques textbook was designed to serve as a quick reference book, easy-to-use, accurate information, and convenient to the surgeon or resident in the operating room. These goals are valuable and much appreciated by the surgeon who occasionally does total knee arthroplasty or the resident in training who wants a quick reference in his pocket. The authors have done and admirable job in this regard.
Audience: The authors have targeted the surgeon performing total knee arthroplasty but I would not be surprised to find this book in the pocket of every resident on the joint reconstructive service. The original textbook by these authors is excellent and has been well-received in the orthopaedic community. This will serve as a complement to that text.
Features: The editors have selected specific chapters from their textbook that focus purely on technical performance of total knee arthroplasty. They include pearls on alignment, bone cuts, proper assessment of tensioning, and revision surgery. The pictures provide a great reminder to the surgeon in the operating theater what their goals are in total knee arthroplasty. The black and white photos and drawings are clearly adequate for this purpose.
Assessment: Compared to reference texts, this handbook is concise, easy to use and perfect for carrying in your lab coat on the way to the operating room for the total knee. It is amazingly helpful, and I would suggest it be in the pocket of the casual total knee arthroplasty surgeon and all residents on the adult reconstructive service.
