Complex Cases in Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Compendium of Current Techniques

by Alfred J. Tria

Covering both primary and revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA), each technique-oriented chapter in this book opens with a clinical case and an overview of the challenges and multiple options for management, and each section within the chapter will describe the physical exam, surgical approach, clinical outcome and recent supporting literature. Chapters will utilize bullet points for quick reference and plentiful intra-operative photos to illustrate the various techniques described. Part one covers primary TKA, with cases demonstrating management strategies for the varus and valgus knee, flexion contracture, patellofemoral arthritis, and extra-articular deformity, among others, while part two covers revision TKA, with cases demonstrating acute infection, flexion and global instability, severe tibial and femoral bone loss, and periprosthetic fracture, among others.

Written and edited by experts in the field, Complex Cases In Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Collection of Current Techniques will be a useful reference for orthopedic surgeons, residents and fellows as well as sports medicine specialists and anyone involved in surgical care of the knee.

Osteoporosis: A Lifecourse Epidemiology Approach to Skeletal Health

Multidisciplinary Approach to Osteoporosis: From Assessment to Treatment

by Andrea Lenzi

This book describes in detail the multidisciplinary management of osteoporosis, providing readers with a thorough understanding of the rationale for a multidisciplinary approach and with the tools required to implement it effectively. The emphasis is on a translational approach, starting from basic concepts and fundamental mechanisms of the pathology and clinical morbidity. Experts in the field discuss the full range of relevant topics, including the significance of physical activity, nutritional strategies, and pharmacological treatment. Put another way, the book covers all aspects from the bench to the bedside.

Physicians, scientists, and postgraduate students will all find it to be invaluable in understanding the causes and optimal management of osteoporosis, the incidence of which is increasing rapidly as populations age.

Principles of Bone Biology Vol 1+ Vol 2

by John P. Bilezikian

Preface from the first edition (1996): "The world of modern science is undergoing a number of spectacular events that are redefining our understanding of ourselves. As with any revolution, we should take stock of where we have been, where we are, and where we are going. Our special world of bone biology is participating in and taking advantage of the larger global revolution in modern science… we assembled experts from all over the world and asked them to focus on the current state of knowledge and the prospects for new knowledge in their area of expertise. To this end, Principles of Bone Biology was conceived." - John P. Bilezikian, Lawrence G. Raisz, Gideon A. Rodan Praise for the previous edition: "Students, teachers, and practitioners will benefit from reading it, and investigators will use it as a reference work; it will certainly be consulted frequently." --The New England Journal of Medicine For over two decades, "Big Gray" has been the go-to repository of knowledge in the disciplines related to bone and mineral metabolism. The fourth edition is a must-have for students new to the field; young investigators at the graduate or postgraduate level beginning their research careers; established scientists who need to keep up with the changing nature of the field, looking to enrich their own research programs, or who are changing their career direction; clinicians who want ready access to up-to-date relevant basic science. This new edition builds on the successful formula from previous editions, taking the reader from the basic elements of fundamental research to the most sophisticated concepts in therapeutics. Principles of Bone Biology, Fourth Edition provides the most comprehensive, authoritative reference on the study of bone biology and related diseases. Bone research continues to generate enormous attention, due to the broad public health implications of osteoporosis and related bone disorders. This classic, fully updated, two volume reference is designed for anyone involved in the study of bone biology.
