Rotatory Knee Instability: An Evidence Based Approach


This book is designed to equip the reader with the knowledge and tools required for provision of individualized ACL treatment based on the best available evidence. All major aspects of the assessment of rotatory knee instability are addressed in depth. A historical overview of arthrometers, both invasive and non-invasive, is provided, and newly developed devices for the measurement of rotatory knee laxity are considered. Recent advances with respect to the pivot shift test are explained and evidence offered to support a standardized pivot shift test and non-invasive quantification of the pivot shift. Specific surgical techniques for rotatory laxity are described, with presentation of the experience from several world-renowned centers. In addition, functional rehabilitation and “return to play” are discussed. In keeping with the emphasis on an individualized approach, the book highlights individualization of surgical reconstruction techniques in accordance with the specific injury pattern and grade of rotatory knee laxity as well as the use of individualized rehabilitation techniques. Numerous high-quality images illustrate key points and clear take-home messages are provided.

Minimally Invasive Surgery in Orthopedics


Now revised and expanded into a major reference work, Scuderi and Tria bring together leaders in the field for this update of their classic 2010 text on minimally invasive surgery in orthopedics. Organized anatomically, each section has been reviewed and revised with the most current information and techniques, both common and complex. An entirely new section on analgesics and anesthesia is included, and the former section on the upper extremities is split into three distinct sections on the shoulder, elbow, and hand, respectively, for a more in-depth presentation of these areas. Subsequent sections on the hip, knee, foot and ankle, and spine are similarly reinforced with the state-of-the-art for each region. The final section is reworked to include not only computer navigation strategies but other innovative technologies in MIS as well. Now, as then, this is the go-to reference for orthopedic surgeons, residents and fellows seeking a practical understanding of minimally invasive techniques in orthopedics.

The Osteoporosis Book: A Guide for Patients and Their Families


By (author): Nancy E. Lane

Osteoporosis currently affects 25 million people in the United States, and as the baby boomers enter their fifties, this bone-weakening disease is poised to strike millions more. Because of this disease, many older people will suffer from a bone fracture at some point , and far too many of these fractures will result in permanent disability.

The good news is that this devastating “silent epidemic” is entirely preventable, and in The Osteoporosis Book, readers of all ages will find everything they need to know to slow, stop, and even reverse the bone loss that causes this crippling disease. Written by Dr. Nancy E. Lane, a leading investigator and clinician in the field of osteoporosis, it is an indispensable guide to the exciting medical breakthroughs that have taken place in the past few years–in bone density measurement, in estrogen therapy, and in our knowledge of the bone cycle–that now allow doctors to predict who is at risk and to monitor these individuals in their fifties, before a fracture occurs. Readers learn to evaluate–and whenever possible, eliminate–the risk factors in their own lives. “What vitamins should I take? Is hormone replacement therapy right for me? And what about exercise?” The answers are here. And for those already affected by osteoporosis, Dr. Lane provides the most effective and up-to-date medical and practical advice available anywhere for coping with its aches and pains and safeguarding against further deterioration.

Impeccably researched and reassuringly accessible, The Osteoporosis Book empowers readers to make informed healthcare choices that will enhance the quality of their lives for decades to come. It has been endorsed by the National Osteoporosis Foundation.

The Osteoporosis Primer


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Osteoporosis is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among the elderly. The rationale for The Osteoporosis Primer is to provide an introductory text that relates the clinical presentation of osteoporosis to its molecular biochemical basis. The text has been organized into four sections that deal with the molecular/cellular components of bone, the development of peak bone mass, the pathophysiology of aging bone and finally, how all of these relate to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of osteoporosis. The international team of authors includes many leading clinicians and scientists who have provided the reader with a concise, yet comprehensive, synopsis of bone development and skeletal homeostasis. This book will be an essential introduction for individuals working on osteoporosis, including students and doctors considering a career related to metabolic bone disease, general practitioners, geriatricians, rheumatologists, and endocrinologists.
