About this book

Comprised of clinical cases demonstrating strategies for both common and complex knee preservation, this concise, practical casebook will provide orthopedic surgeons with the best real-world strategies to properly manage the many kinds of knee injuries and disorders they may encounter. The opening section presents the knee joint as a unique structure, reviewing the anatomy and function of articular cartilage and the meniscus, the effects of joint malalignment, the role of the synovium, and how joint failure is defined. The next two sections are comprised of clinical cases with a unique presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management techniques used to treat it, as well as the case outcome, and clinical pearls and pitfalls. Cases included illustrate small and large cartilage defects, osteochondritis dessicans, chondral defects and lesions, meniscal allograft transplantation, and tibial and tibiofemoral cartilage defects, among others. The final section examines the current evidence for the treatment of articular cartilage lesions and emerging techniques in knee joint preservation and cartilage restoration.
Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Joint Preservation of the Knee: A Clinical Casebook is an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists treating common and complex injuries of the knee.

“The book is written for knee surgeons and those engaged in research on knee‐related topics, but also for residents, students, and other physicians caring for patients with knee disorders. The needs of the intended audience are well met. … It is an essential addition to the academic library frequented by individuals seeking information on this subject.” (Samuel J. Chmell, Doody's Book Reviews, May 31, 2019)
