Biomarkers in Bone Disease (Biomarkers in Disease: Methods, Discoveries and Applications)


There are many conditions that affect the skeletal system. On a worldwide basis, osteoarthritis alone affects 10%-15 percent of those over 60 years of age and in some countries more than 30-50% of postmenopausal women will have osteopenia or osteoporosis. With the increasing ageing population, maintaining skeletal health is particularly important. Fractures in the aged, for example, can lead to premature deaths. It is therefore imperative that appropriate use is made of conventional, new and emerging biomarker platforms.  Biomarkers in Bone Disease  embraces a holistic approach by combining information on different conditions that affect the skeletal system and the use of biomarkers. Biomarkers are described in terms of conventional, new and emerging analytes, techniques, platforms and applications. It covers the latest knowledge, trends and innovations. New platforms are described which combine advances in biomedical sciences, physics, computing and chemistry.

Neoplastic Mimics in Soft Tissue and Bone Pathology


By (author): Vickie Y. Jo MD, Jason L. Hornick MD PhD

Neoplastic mimics, or “pseudotumors,” can simulate neoplasms on all levels of analysis??clinical, radiologic, and pathologic??and thus represent particular diagnostic pitfalls for the pathologist that can ultimately lead to therapeutic misdirection.

This book provides the pathologist with detailed morphologic descriptions and diagnostic guidance in recognizing these neoplastic mimics as they occur in soft tissue and bones. In addition, descriptions and diagnostic guidance are provided for the range of lesions that are considered benign neoplasms but may mimic malignant tumors. Throughout the book comparisons of neoplastic mimics with true neoplasms (and benign neoplasms with sarcomas) are provided, at clinical, gross, and histologic levels. In the presentation of every entity, the points that contribute to differential diagnosis are emphasized.

More than 300 color images and analysis of neoplastic and malignant mimics guide the pathologist through recognizing and distinguishing the unusual variants, morphologic anomalies and misleading features that may easily lead to an inaccurate interpretation and missed diagnosis. Because many of the entities described are uncommon, Neoplastic Mimics in Soft Tissue and Bone Pathology emphasizes imaging and clinical correlations throughout to support the pathologist as consultant to the entire diagnostic and clinical management team. Every pathologist who sees soft tissue and bone cases will find this book an invaluable working tool to ensure accurate diagnosis.

Neoplastic Mimics in Soft Tissue and Bone Pathology Features:

  • Over 300 high-quality images showing the full range of neoplastic and malignant mimics in soft tissue and bone specimens
  • Concise, specific text descriptions make the book easy to use as a visual reference
  • Expert authors guide the reader to recognizing and distinguishing misleading specimens

Disorders of the Scapula and Their Role in Shoulder Injury: A Clinical Guide to Evaluation and Management


This unique book – the first of its kind exclusive on disorders of the scapula – is a concise but comprehensive summary of the evidence that will enable clinicians to understand the scapula from its functions to its dysfunctions and includes clinical guidelines and pearls to improve the clinician’s competencies for the treatment of shoulder disorders. Organized logically, the book opens with a review of the baseline mechanics and pathomechanics of the scapula, proceeds to evaluation, then describes in detail the association of the scapula with specific shoulder problems, including rotator cuff disease, labral injuries, glenohumeral and multidirectional instability, clavicle fractures, acromioclavicular joint separation, and shoulder arthrosis. Subsequent chapters cover scapular muscle detachment, neurological injuries and winging, scapular fractures and snapping scapula, in addition to basic and complex rehabilitation strategies. Each chapter includes a summary section with clinical pearls.
In the past, in-depth research and expertise regarding the scapula was minimal, but a widening interest has resulted in a volume of literature that makes it possible and imperative that it be collected in a single volume. Disorders of the Scapula and Their Role in Shoulder Injury will be an excellent resource for orthopedic and trauma surgeons, residents and fellows.

A Modern Approach to Biofilm-Related Orthopaedic Implant Infections: Advances in Microbiology, Infectious Diseases and Public Health Volume 5 (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)


This book discusses Prosthetic Joint Infection (PJI), which remains one of the most common problems necessitating revision arthroplasty. It pursues a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together opinions from the leading experts in the field. The book identifies the potential causes of these infections, provides sound diagnostic criteria guidelines, and explains how these prosthetic infections are managed from orthopedic surgery, clinical and diagnostic perspectives. 

PJI can lead to multiple revision surgeries and significant patient morbidity. Periprosthetic infection rates remain around 1–2% after primary total hip and knee arthroplasty and account for approximately 7–12% of all revision cases.

Orthopedic hardware infections are much-feared and costly complications that can occur when these devices are implemented both in traumatic cases as well as in joint replacement surgery. Because these infections can lead to higher morbidity, it is important to understand their pathophysiology and the principles behind their diagnosis and initial treatment.

The pathogenesis of these kinds of infections is intimately connected to the biofilm-producing trait characteristic of many microorganisms, which can have a critical effect on the likely success of treatments.  

The book offers a unique guide for all scientists working in arthroplasty who are seeking an update on the field, and for newcomers alike.

Shoulder Instability Across the Life Span


Features: Shoulder Instability Across the Life Span

This book outlines the consensus findings of the ISAKOS Upper Extremity Committee regarding the treatment options for patients suffering from shoulder instability. The aim is to furnish readers with a precise knowledge of the presenting features of conditions typical of different ages, thereby facilitating assessment of patient characteristics and optimal treatment decision making based on the consensus of the Committee. All age groups are covered, from the very young through to the older patient. The structuring of the book essentially according to age group reflects the fact that certain forms of shoulder instability are observed at different ages. For example, while young patients tend to demonstrate instability combined with hyperlaxity, in later years, bony defects of the glenoid and humerus gain in importance. Similarly, the scope for conservative treatment varies across the life span. Each management-oriented chapter of the book includes information and guidance on anatomy, clinical examination, imaging, surgical indications and technique, rehabilitation, outcomes, and complications and their avoidance, and the text is supported by numerous high-quality illustrations.
