In recent years, there have been a number of exciting advances in biologic and nanoarthroscopic approaches in sports medicine, giving the clinician even more options for safe and effective minimally invasive treatments for the active patient. This practical text presents these breakthrough techniques in detail and describes the authors' experiences and lessons learned.
This book is broken into two main sections. The first section presents the history of the use of biologics in sports medicine and will have several chapters describing novel techniques using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow concentrate (BMC), all-inside allograft ACL reconstruction, minimally invasive quad tendon harvest with endoscopic closure, and cartilage transfer (ACT) using an autologous tissue collector, among others. The second section describes the history of arthroscopy and the most recent use of nanoarthroscopy, including several novel techniques utilizing the nanoscope, such as incisionless partial medial meniscectomy, synovectomy of the knee, and single incision approaches for the anterior labrum and rotator cuff.
Practical and cutting edge, Biologic and Nanoarthroscopic Approaches in Sports Medicine is an exciting exploration of the most recent management approaches for both sports medicine and orthopedic surgeons.
