Biomaterials for Musculoskeletal Regeneration: Concepts (Indian Institute of Metals Series)


By (author): Bikramjit Basu

This book covers the basics of the biomaterials science its applications to bone tissue engineering. The introductory section describes the most necessary concepts and techniques related to the cell and molecular biology with a particular focus on evaluating the biocompatibility property. The layout of this book facilitates easier understanding of the area of bone tissue engineering. The book integrates the Materials Science and Biological Science. It covers processing and basic material properties of various biocompatible metals and ceramics-based materials, in vitro and in vivo biocompatibility and toxicity assessment in the context of bone tissue engineering, and  processing and properties of metal-, ceramic- and polymer-based biocomposites, including the fabrication of porous scaffold materials.  The book can be used as a textbook for  senior undergraduate and graduate coursework. It will also be a useful reference for researchers and professionals working in the area.

Musculoskeletal Trauma in the Elderly


Trauma in older people aged over 65 is a rapidly growing field within orthopaedics. Up to two thirds of fractures occur as a result of a fall and about one third of all fractures occur in the over-65 population. The aim of this comprehensive new text is to present the epidemiology and management of all musculoskeletal trauma that occurs in the elderly. The book deals with the assessment and treatment of medical comorbidities, complications, and the role of orthogeriatric care.

The focus of the book is on the practical management of fractures although soft tissue injuries and dislocations are also discussed. Reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of the field, contributors are drawn from orthopaedics and orthogeriatrics on both sides of the Atlantic. The book is intended for all surgeons and physicians involved in the treatment of trauma in the elderly, and it will be relevant to trainees and as well as experienced practitioners.

Orthopaedic Biomaterials in Research and Practice, Second Edition


By (author): Kevin L. Ong, Scott Lovald, Jonathan Black

Revised, expanded, and updated, Orthopaedic Biomaterials in Research and Practice, Second Edition introduces materials science and applies it to medical research and treatment. This book incorporates math and engineering, which makes it accessible to trainees and others working in the industry who are lacking primary mathematical and engineering training.

What’s New in the Second Edition:

In the second edition, the new material includes regeneration, hybrid and replant materials, tissue engineering, electrical stimulation for tissue growth and repair, modeling of material behavior in service, and long-term function of materials in patients. It explores tools for non-destructive and destructive analysis of explanted devices, and provides updates on all material classes including shape memory and degradable alloys, fracture-resistant ceramics, and bioabsorbable polymers. It provides a compendium for implant host response including in-depth discussion of metallosis and hypersensitive response. It also adds new case studies, worked problems, and a complete self-evaluation test with annotated answers.

  • Includes focused, practical study questions after each chapter
  • Presents extensive, detailed figures accompanying example problems and concepts
  • Provides a one-stop reference for understanding all biomaterials that are used in contemporary orthopaedic surgery and beyond
  • Introduces key concepts of relevance in each chapter

Orthopaedic Biomaterials in Research and Practice, Second Edition serves as a textbook for orthopaedic residents. It can also serve as a review for the Orthopaedists In-Training Examination (OITE), the Orthopaedic Self-Assessment Examination, or the Orthopaedic Board Examination.

Paediatric Orthopaedics: An Evidence-Based Approach to Clinical Questions


This book provides a refined clinical guide for evidence-based recommendations in paediatric orthopaedics. Focusing on specific body regions (hip, knees, ankle and feet, spine, shoulder, elbow and wrist and hand) this resource addresses clinical questions related to conditions in these areas. A background section in each chapter sets the scene for the best available practice and also appraises the evidence for its strength and weakness. At the end of each chapter, the authors’ provide recommendations on future research.

Evidence-Based Paediatric Orthopaedics: The Best Answers to Clinical Questions has been edited by a team of surgeons with a great interest in evidence-based practice who have brought together an international experts to produce this timely book. A wide spectrum audience including paediatric orthopaedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, orthopaedic residents, emergency department doctors, general practitioners and medical students looking for an evidence based approach to paediatric orthopaedics will find this book to be an essential guide for clinical practice.

Joint Preservation in the Adult Knee


This book offers a comprehensive overview of the basic science and clinical evidence for non-arthroplasty interventions in the adult knee. It aims to cover all aspects of joint-preserving knee surgery, from injectable therapies such as platelet-rich plasma and stem cell therapies to surgical interventions such as meniscal repair and replacement, ligament reconstructions, and osteotomies. Following discussion of clinical assessment and imaging, individual chapters focus on specific clinical problems, including patellofemoral joint disorders, chondral injuries, and bone tumors. For each condition, a thorough overview is provided, describing clinical assessment, management (including surgical and non-surgical methods), and novel therapies. The contributors are experts in their fields from across Europe and are drawn from the worlds of clinical and academic orthopedic surgery. This book is unique in its coverage of the entire span of non-arthroplasty knee surgery and its focus on both clinical and basic science aspects. It will be helpful for knee surgeons and those engaged in research on knee-related topics, but also for students and other physicians involved in the care of patients with disorders of the knee.

Rotator Cuff Tear: Pathogenesis, Evaluation and Treatment


This handbook provides detailed, state of the art information on simple and complex rotator cuff tears that will be of value in daily clinical practice. It covers all relevant aspects, including basic science, pathogenesis, clinical and instrumental evaluation, and treatment techniques. Drawing on the results of recent studies, the book will enable the reader to better understand how tears occur and what treatment should be employed in different circumstances.

Rotator cuff tear has always attracted great interest because it may cause shoulder pain, loss of strength, simple or complex disabilities, and partial or total inability to work, reducing quality of life. The goals of cuff repair are to restore footprint anatomy with biomechanically secure, tension-free construction that promotes biological healing at the tendon-to-bone interface. Even today, there is cause for discussion about when and how to perform surgical repair and on what to do in cases of irreparable rupture. This book casts light on such issues. It is especially designed for shoulder surgeons and rehabilitation specialists and will also be of value for residents and shoulder fellows.
