This book is a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and treatment of injuries to the elbow joint incurred by athletes of all ages during participation in sports such as tennis, golf, baseball, volleyball, weight lifting, and javelin throwing. The coverage includes the evaluation and management of medial and lateral elbow pain, degenerative elbow, distal biceps and triceps tendon injuries, posterior impingement and nerve compression syndromes, dislocations, and fractures. General guidance is also provided on injury prevention, physical examination, imaging, the use of endoscopy, and rehabilitation. Clinical anatomy of the elbow is thoroughly described and a chapter on biomechanics explains the basic science of the discussed pathologies. Elbow and Sport is a book project initiated by the Elbow and Wrist Committee of the European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA) with the aim of describing sports-related elbow pathologies from diagnosis to conservative or surgical treatment. The authors include some of the most eminent experts in elbow surgery from Europe and elsewhere in the world. The guidelines proposed in the book will be invaluable for all specialists in upper limb sport lesions, including surgeons, sport medicine doctors, and physiotherapists.
