This book consists of case studies selected for their clinical value. The text is comprehensive and covers the spectrum of current treatments. Emphasis is placed on clarifying the overall decision-making process involved with cartilage repair and solution implementation. Cases are logically organized by increasing complexity. Injury evaluation, including physical examination and radiographic evaluation, is detailed. Comorbidities and off-label usage of technology are considered as well. Each case concludes with bulleted decision-making factors that further reinforce treatment rational. Brilliant illustrations, many in color, highlight disease presentation and arthroscopic techniques. With its practical, case-based approach, this book advances disease management through improved judgment.
