Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book details the CORAIL hip system literally from start to finish. It begins with its conception, design, and basic science and then details its 25-year history of stellar results.
Purpose: The purpose is to detail the design, the usage including a wide variety of potential applications, and the long-term surgical results of the CORAIL total hip replacement system.
Audience: The book is written primarily for practicing orthopedic surgeons who perform frequent primary and revision hip replacements. Fellows and senior residents also will find it useful. The author and contributors are all credible authorities.
Features: In addition to thoroughly describing the design rationale of the implant system, the book covers the wide variety of routine and complex cases that can be treated with this system and the excellent results that have been obtained over the years. The diagrams and photographs are extremely well done and pertinent. The book is succinct, covers the material very well, and reads like a very interesting novel.
Assessment: This book belongs in any orthopedic library that purports to serve joint replacement surgeons and residents. It is informative read in full, but will also serve as a reference for comparison to other systems and for recommendations in treating difficult cases.
