The volume is divided into five parts, each including several chapters assigned to internationally renowned specialists who deal in an organic and modern manner with the most significant problems of knee replacement surgery. The authors have taken into consideration the biomechanical features, the indications, and the surgical methods used. Furthermore, particular attention is paid to the selection of prostheses and to the attempts to reduce polyethylene wear and stress at the prosthesis/bone or prosthesis/cement/bone interface.
