Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark R Hutchinson, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book and accompanying DVD on sports-related knee surgeries are intended as operating companions for students, residents, and attendings. The book, which covers 32 specific procedures, is organized in an outline, bullet-point format that sequentially walks readers through preparation and the procedure. The DVD is visually outstanding with appropriate narration guiding users through specific surgeries.
Purpose: The authors have used the Elsevier journals, Operative Techniques in Orthopaedics and Operative Techniques Sports Medicine as the guiding force behind this book. These outstanding journals feature excellent figures and focused text. The authors note that these journals could not cover the entire topic of sports medicine; therefore, this book was compiled to create an operating room companion of sports medicine cases of the knee that could be used for a myriad of sports cases. These are worthy goals and, especially with the accompanying DVD, the authors have accomplished them.
Audience: The authors target students through residents and attending physicians as potential users. I can easily see it as a central reference in the operating rooms of educational programs performing a significant number of sports cases. The lead authors are the next generation of leadership in orthopedic sports medicine and Mark Miller has already established himself as one of the best educators in orthopedic sports medicine in the country.
Features: Each of the 32 chapters is written in a bulleted, outline format which results in a uniform flow throughout the book. This differs from the format of the Operative Techniques journals after which the book is modeled, but it provides an efficient transfer of information. The image quality is outstanding and the figures are an excellent guide for recreating the procedures. I loved the DVD, which alone may be worth the purchase price. Each chapter ends not with a bibliography or references but rather evidence. Many but not all of the articles are then categorized by the level of evidence they represent. If there is one shortcoming, it is the preponderance of level 3 and 4 references over level 1 and 2 references.
Assessment: The authors have created a wonderful operating room companion for sports-related surgeries of the knee. Mine will be available in the operating room for all my residents to review before each case. This is a unique offering that works as a quick, efficient reference in the OR.
