About this book

Joint hypermobility, joint laxity or "double-jointedness" is no longer regarded as just a quaint clinical entity, but has gained recognition as a feature common to a heterogeneous group of generalized hereditary connective tissue disorders. This monograph examines the scientific basis, clinical features and treatment of this syndrome. The second edition has been thoroughly updated, with new contributions to cover in depth three areas in which new scientific advances have been made: biochemistry, genetics, and biomechanics. The case histories make fascinating reading, and the comprehensive coverage of the rarer hereditary disorders provides a valuable reference. From the reviews of the first edition: "This little book deals with a somewhat neglected subject and will prove useful in a number of ways." British Journal of Plastic Surgery #1 "This is a delightful book full of stimulating ideas, by three authors who have pooled their thoughts and the results of their studies." Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine #2
