The Knee—a volume in the new Arthritis and Arthroplasty series—offers expert guidance on everything from patient selection and pre-operative planning to surgical approaches and techniques. Clear, evidence-based coverage details which technology and methodology used for total knee arthroplasty (TKA), reconstruction or revision is best for each patient. Access discussions of debates on sizing and balancing, minimally invasive surgery, component removal, management of bone loss and ligament insufficiency in revision TKA, infection, peirprosthetic fractures and more. Explore alternatives to TKA in younger arthritic patients and view expertly narrated video demonstrations of surgical techniques. In addition to providing practical, pragmatic advice in a concise, readable format, this Expert Consult title offers the full text of the book, as well as links to PubMed and periodic content updates, online at expertconsult.com.
