About this book

The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee: A Practical Guide to Management presents the orthopedic surgeon with an unprecedented review of the most recent and advanced information available on the successful diagnosis and treatment of multiple ligament knee injuries. Gregory C. Fanelli, MD, handpicked internationally renowned contributors to ensure that the clearly written guide is valuable for orthopedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, sports medicine fellows, physical therapists, physician assistants, and all other health professionals who treat traumatic injuries of the knee. The comprehensive volume covers the basic anatomy and biomechanics of the knee as well as the assessment and classification of knee injuries. Although the chapters build upon each other, they can also stand alone as practical, quick references. The format is particularly useful given the extensive number of treatment techniques that are examined, including nonoperative, arthroscopic, and open surgical approaches. Vascular and nerve injuries are addressed in addition to various ACL/PCL/Medial/Lateral injuries. Chapters on postoperative rehabilitation, possible complications, and brace treatment provide additional insight. The definitive text is completed by select case studies that demonstrate how highlighted approaches are applied. Techniques are also reinforced by a wealth of line drawings and photographs.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Multiple ligament injuries of the knee occur predominantly in young, fit and active patients. … these injuries are rare but this means that few surgeons have significant experience in their management. This book … is therefore of great value. … It should be a mandatory purchase for any surgeons with an interest in soft-tissue injuries of the knee." (R. Allum)

"Written by a team of experienced contributors, this practical guide discusses the essential aspects of the management of a knee with multiple ligament injuries. … An extensive number of treatment options are examined … . This work is clearly written and contains the most recent information, invaluable for orthopaedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, residents, physical therapists and all other health professionals involved with traumatic injuries of the knee." (D. Zorman, Acta Orthopaedica Belgica, Vol. 71(1), 2005)

"If the surgery of the anterior cruciate ligament is perfectly codified, the multiple ligamentary traumatisms of the knee are definitely less … . G. C. Fanelli and co-authors propose to share their experiments in a real didactic step. … this work is addressed primarily at not only surgery specialists of the knee, but also experts confronted with traumatology, in order to better appreciate the lesional diagnosis of multiple ligamentary lesions, and thus to take the adequate decisions according to the experiment." (L. Balabaud, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, Vol. 16, 2006)
