Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: Part of a monograph series from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, this one provides a comprehensive account of the current thought about, and approaches to, the management of glenohumeral arthritis in active patients.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an update on the continually evolving field of shoulder surgery, in this case, on the treatment of glenohumeral arthritis in young, active patients. Most classic books on the shoulder cannot keep up with the speed of change in this area and the monograph serves to keep practitioners current.
Audience: It is clearly aimed at practicing orthopedic surgeons who take care of patients with shoulder problems. It is a go-to, current concepts, summary of the topic that will also be eagerly read by orthopedic residents and fellows in training. The authors are internationally renowned cartilage restoration and shoulder surgeons. It is no surprise that the AAOS would go to these two leaders in the field to bring together an impressive group of contributors to create the most current and up-to-date reference on this subject.
Features: This concise, 100-page booklet has nine chapters on topics from epidemiology and evaluation to management options ranging from conservative to arthroplasty. The writing quality and images are consistently at the level of excellence we have grown accustomed to from the AAOS.
Assessment: The authors succeed in providing the premier, go-to reference on the management of patients with glenohumeral arthritis. This is a challenging problem, and the treatment options are continually changing as we learn what works and what doesn't. This monograph does a wonderful job of bringing us up to date. It is a must buy for orthopedic surgeons who take care of patients with shoulder problems as well as every institutional orthopedic library.
