The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee: A Practical Guide to Management presents the orthopaedic surgeon with an unprecedented review of the most recent and advanced knowledge needed to successfully diagnose and treat knee ligament injuries. This comprehensive and practical volume presents anterior and posterior cruciate and collateral ligament anatomy and biomechanics, along with non-invasive methods for diagnosing the extent of injury, such as radiographic and arthroscopic evaluation. Various injuries are discussed along with useful treatment techniques, including arthroscopic reconstruction, posterolateral and posteromedial corner injury and treatment, assessment and treatment of vascular injuries, assessment and treatment of nerve injuries, rehabilitation, and post-operative results. Each of these clearly written chapters is accompanied by a wealth of line drawings and photographs that demonstrate both the surgical and non-surgical approaches to examination and treatment.
The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee will be a valuable guide for attending orthopaedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, sports medicine fellows, orthopaedic surgery residents, as well as allied health professionals, including physical therapists, physician assistants, and all who treat traumatic injuries of the knee.
