Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a compilation of papers presented at a workshop entitled Repetitive Motion Disorders of the Upper Extremity held in Bethesda in June 1994. Its publisher, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), received invaluable support and contributions from The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, The National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research, The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, The Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation, and others.
Purpose: The main purposes are to define the pathophysiology and to recommend current clinical approaches to diagnosing and treating repetitive motion disorders. As to be expected, the contributory scientists raised as many questions as there were answers. Therefore, not all the objectives were attainable.
Audience: The book is written mainly for scientists in the field. The clinical material presented is available in other standard orthopedic texts. The authors are fully qualified individuals.
Features: The table of contents is divided into six sections. Four sections cover the pathophysiology of biochemical loads, connective tissue, muscle, and nerve. The remaining two sections deal with epidemiologic and physiologic processes, and clinical issues. Each section gives invaluable advice on directions for future research. The materials presented are very current and so are the references.
Assessment: An orthopedic clinician reading some of the basic physiologic processes presented may find the material both enlightening and reminiscent of medical school days. The editors are to be commended for a job very well done. I highly recommend this book for all scientists involved in musculoskeletal research. It should be purchased by medical and allied science libraries as a valuable reference resource.

Proceedings of a workshop on the title subject, held in Bethesda, Maryland, June 1994. The goal was to briefly review epidemiological and work environment issues related to identifying and reducing some of the risk factors, but to emphasize the pathophysiological causes of tissue damage and resulting pain and dysfunction, and the current clinical approaches to diagnosing and treating these injuries. The volume is divided into six edited and introduced sections: epidemiological and psychological laboratory studies; pathophysiology (biomechanical loads/connective tissue/muscle/nerve); and clinical issues. Includes directions for future research, and answers to six clinical questions that a layperson might ask a physician. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
