Musculoskeletal tissue banking involves the collection, screening, storage and distribution of donated human bone and tissue (cartilage, ligaments and tendons), for transplant purposes. It is commonly used in spinal surgery and hip and knee surgery, as well as for the treatment of bone tumours and other bone defects. It is also used for research purposes.
This book is a comprehensive guide to the practice of musculoskeletal tissue transplantation and tissue banking. Beginning with an introduction to bone structure, the following chapters describe tissue transplantation procedures for different defects. Complete chapters are dedicated to tissue banking and tissue engineering.
Written by internationally recognised authors from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, this practical guide includes 270 full colour clinical photographs and illustrations to enhance learning.
