Knee arthroplasty, or knee replacement, is a surgical procedure in which the knee joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant. Once considered a highly complex operation, it is now a common orthopaedic procedure.
This book is a comprehensive guide to knee replacement. Beginning with an overview of the history of the procedure, the biomechanics of a normal and a replaced knee, surgical approaches and the role of imaging, the following chapters present current concepts on various aspects of knee surgery. Anaesthesia, postoperative pain management and rehabilitation are also discussed.
This 1000-page book is highly illustrated with MRI images and clinical photographs. A DVD ROM demonstrating surgical procedures is also included.
