  • Provides clear instruction on the management of joint problems in adult hemophilia patients
  • Reviews surgical approaches to the most important joints affected by hemophilia, including shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle
  • Written by experts with extensive experience in the treatment of patients with hemophilia

This book provides clear instruction on the surgical treatment of joint problems in adult hemophilia patients. The procedures applicable to specific joints, including the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle, are carefully reviewed with the aid of high-quality illustrations. The surgical treatment of articular hemophilic pseudotumors and bone cysts is also considered. In addition, clinically relevant information is provided on a range of topics, such as the treatment of hemophilic hemarthroses, the imaging of hemophilic joints, hematological perioperative management, anesthesia, rehabilitation, and pharmacoeconomics. Finally, the controversial issues of postoperative thromboembolic prophylaxis and the role of COX-2 inhibitors in hemophiliacs are reviewed. The guidance provided draws on both the authors’ extensive personal experience and an in-depth review of the pertinent literature.

The book offers an excellent, up-to-date account of knowledge on musculoskeletal problems and approaches to joint surgery in adults with hemophilia. It will be of value to orthopedic surgeons, rehabilitation physicians, hematologists, radiologists, and pharmacy researchers.
