Overview

Written by the foremost experts, this text is a comprehensive clinical reference on osteoarthritis. Chapters review current information on the epidemiology, etiopathogenesis, and pathology of osteoarthritis, the biochemistry and molecular and cell biology of articular cartilage, and experimental models of osteoarthritis. Major sections focus on clinical presentations, roentgenologic and laboratory diagnosis, and treatment, including pharmacologic treatment, intra-articular therapy, surgery, arthroscopy, and complementary and alternative medicine.

The authors discuss the indications, outcomes, and complications of various orthopaedic procedures. Chapters present orthopaedic approaches to osteoarthritis of various joints—the shoulder, hand, wrist, elbow, hip, knee, foot, ankle, and cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Maria V Vintimilla, MD (Washington University Medical Center)
Description: Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most frequent causes of consultation in a rheumatology practice. Its treatment can be controversial, since more selective NSAIDs are now available on the market. This book addresses appropriately all the possible therapeutic strategies, along with pros and cons. It also discusses the most recent trials for treatment of OA and addresses the concerns that rheumatologists had when these trials were first available. It uses excellent tables and illustrations for the procedures.
Purpose: The author has designed this book to be used not only by rheumatologists, but also by other physicians such as orthopedists and internists. For this purpose, the book is well written in easy to understand language. The author also intended to provide an update in the field, and that objective has been met in the treatment section.
Audience: It makes sense to target other physicians in addition to rheumatologists because OA is a disease that frequently is not treated by a rheumatologist. The authors are well known authorities in the field.
Features: The book covers all the pertinent topics in OA, including epidemiology, clinical presentation, biologic bases, diagnostic methods, and all types of treatment available, including alternative medicine. Excellent tables and explanatory graphics are used for procedures. I appreciate how the author approaches the controversial topics from a very neutral position.
Assessment: It was important to update the previous edition (written 8 years ago), since new therapeutic strategies are now available for the treatment of OA.
