Hip and knee arthroplasty, or hip/knee replacement, are surgical procedures in which the hip joint or knee is replaced by a prosthetic implant. Once considered highly complex operations, they are now common orthopaedic procedures.
Tips and Tricks in Hip and Knee Arthroplasty is a concise guide to hip and knee replacement for orthopaedic surgeons and trainees. Divided into two sections, the first is dedicated to the hip, the second to the knee.
Both sections begin with applied anatomy and the history and biomechanics of the joint. The following chapters describe various surgical and implant options, recent advances and present controversies, as well as potential complications.
Written by internationally recognised experts, this book includes an interactive DVD ROM and more than 200 clinical photographs, illustrations and tables.
