About this book

This book, which derives from an initiative of the Education Committee of The International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine (ISAKOS), addresses all aspects of elbow arthroscopy. Anatomy is thoroughly introduced, referencing safe portals and describing techniques to minimize risk of complications. Subsequent chapters focus on the use of arthroscopy in a range of conditions, including osteochondritis dissecans, stiff elbow, epicondylitis, elbow instability, and elbow fractures. Guidance is provided on diagnosis and indications for arthroscopy, and arthroscopic technique is clearly detailed. A key chapter describes complications and how to avoid them. The authors are experts and pioneers in the field from North America, Australia, and Europe who have in common the ability to teach complex procedures in a simple way. This book will be an invaluable aid for the developing surgeon and an excellent reference for the experienced surgeon.​

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is a comprehensive reference on muscular diagnosis and a classification of head, neck, spinal regions, shoulder, and upper/lower pathology of the 4 extremities. … Thanks for the opportunity to review this excellent source for all of those who want a description of diagnostic strategies, treatment planning, case management, to avoid enumerated malunion, dysfunction, osteonecrosis, or other complications from the entire field of Orthopaedics from the Indian and European standpoints.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, October, 2014)

“The editors present 10 thoughtful and concise chapters in 127 pages, which makes the book efficient and easy to get through as well as enhances its use as a quick reference. This book will be well received by surgeons developing their arthroscopic skills and practice in elbow arthroscopy … . The editors should be applauded for creating a book that should be in every academic library at sites where elbow arthroscopy is performed.” (Mark R. Hutchinson, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2013)
