Book Description :

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is commonly considered to be a reliable procedure, with high implant survival rates at 10 to 15 years of follow-up. The goal of total knee replacement surgery is to relieve pain and obtain better knee function. This is achieved by ensuring correct patient selection, pre-operative deformity, implant design and accurate surgical techniques. This book covers a range of techniques for the realisation of functional joint motion and stability. The first part of the book will describe fundamentals in total knee arthroplasty and alternative procedures. The second half will look at surgical techniques and considerations whilst the final chapters will address future trends and challenges in the field of knee surgery. This book will be an essential reference for academics, orthopaedic surgeons, and those training in medicine, physiatry and rheumatology.

Book Description :

Knee replacement can be regarded as the inevitable sequel to hip replacements, the child so to speak, of a brilliant father. As with other children, there were growing pains and a somewhat troubled adolescence, but the mature adult can now stand, proud and unashamed, alongside its distinguished forebear. Total replacement of the knee is now a highly successful operation which has enriched the lives of countless sufferers. Clearly the time is ripe for a definitive work on the subject. Richard Laskin, whose abiding interest and profound knowledge of knee replace ment are well known, has gathered together a team of notable experts who, between them, cover every aspect of the subject. The first section of this book deals with the history of knee replacement, its indications, alternative procedures, biomechanics and materials. Then follows a most important section by Laskin himself, on the surgical technique, the details of which, as he points out in his preface, are more important than differences between the various prostheses. The third section considers the results of several different prostheses and discusses some problem areas. This is a book which surgeons in the field of knee replacement have been waiting for; those with experience will find it of absorbing interest and those who have more recently embarked on the subject will find it an invaluable guide in their quest for perfection. Dr Laskin is to be congratulated on his choice of collaborators and for producing such a masterly compilation.

Book Description :

Minimally invasive joint replacement has become one of the hottest topics in the orthopedic world. In the case of the knee, however, this concept has been widely misunderstood. All too frequently it is taken to mean keyhole surgery in which traditional components are implanted with a shorter surgical time. Such an approach in fact has few benefits and various possible dangers. In this book, international experts discuss truly minimally invasive knee reconstruction techniques that involve tissue-sparing surgery and small implants and permit preservation of both the anterior and the posterior cruciate ligament. These techniques have the key advantage of respecting the physiological joint biomechanics. They also entail minimal removal of bone tissue from the tibia and only a small skin incision that avoids damage to the extensor apparatus. All of the most innovative techniques used in uni- and bicompartmental knee reconstruction are covered in detail, including computer-assisted procedures. Long-term results are reported, and pitfalls, highlighted. The reader will learn how, with careful selection of patients and rigorous surgical technique, compartmental reconstruction offers a valid alternative to total knee replacement.
