The book covers injuries and disorders of the hand, carpus, distal radius, distal radioulnar joint, forearm, elbow, and shoulder. The chapters are organized both by level and anatomic structure starting with repair or reconstruction of the bone, joint and ligaments and progressing to the nerves, tendons and soft tissue. Each chapter includes the indications, contraindications, surgical techniques and postoperative management oftentimes by the originators of the technique, in addition to numerous pearls and possible pitfalls. When reconstruction is not possible, a section on salvage procedures covers the suitable options.

Comprised exclusively of clinical cases involving osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH), this concise, practical casebook will provide orthopedic surgeons with the best real-world strategies to properly diagnose and treat both pre- and post-collapse conditions. Each chapter is a case that opens with a unique clinical 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. Part I discusses pre-collapse treatments aimed at the early stages of ONFH, including the use of bisphosphonates, stem cell therapy and minimally invasive core decompression. Chapters presenting post-collapse treatments aimed at preserving the femoral head comprise part II, including non-vascularized bone grafting, osteochondral transfer and transtrochanteric osteotomy. Cases covering post-collapse total hip arthroplasty (THA) and common complications round out the presentation.
Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Osteonecrosis of the Femoral Head: A Clinical Casebook will be an excellent resource for orthopedic surgeons, residents and fellows treating hip pain.
