About this book

The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee: A Practical Guide to Management includes the most developed knowledge needed to successfully diagnose and treat knee ligament injuries. This new edition expands upon the first to present anterior and posterior cruciate and collateral ligament anatomy and biomechanics, along with non-invasive methods for diagnosing the extent of injury, such as radiographic and arthroscopic evaluation. Various injuries are discussed along with useful treatment techniques, including arthroscopic reconstruction, posterolateral and posteromedial corner injury and treatment, assessment and treatment of vascular injuries, assessment and treatment of nerve injuries, rehabilitation, and post-operative results. Each of these clearly written chapters is accompanied by a wealth of line drawings and photographs that demonstrate both the surgical and non-surgical approaches to examination and treatment. The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee, Second Edition, remains the only book on the market dedicated solely to this complicated type of injury.

Hutchinson, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2013)
