Bone Disorders: Biology, Diagnosis, Prevention, Therapy

By (author): Reiner Bartl, Christoph Bartl

This comprehensive guide covers the investigation, diagnosis, prevention, and therapy of all the bone disorders encountered in medical practice. Written in an easy-to-read style, it updates physicians on the current knowledge of bone structure, physiology, and pathology, with emphasis on the diagnosis and treatment of common bone diseases. Today, both medical practitioners and specialists need quick access to information on “bone problems” in order to help patients and their families. Therefore this book deals with everything from the basic physiology of bone and mineral metabolism to the utility of radiologic imaging and specialized tests in bone diagnosis and current treatment recommendations. It is scientifically based but provides clear guidelines for managing bone problems and for lifelong maintenance of skeletal structure and function. It will assist not only in the delivery of effective treatment but also in disease prevention.

The Engineering of Human Joint Replacements

By (author): J. A. McGeough

Since the major pioneering of joint replacement surgery more than fifty years ago, much research and progress has been made in the field of arthroplasty with new insights into better materials, types of cement and bone-cell compatible coatings, and a better understanding of the causes of implant failure. With an increasingly ageing population the requirement for arthroplastic surgery is manifest; over 800,000 hips worldwide are replaced each year, and replacement surgery is performed for almost every joint of the body.

The Engineering of Human Joint Replacements covers the design, engineering, production and manufacture of human joint replacements, as well as associated engineering concerns such as surface coatings, orthopedic bone cement, the causes and effects of wear and tear, and rapid prototyping for clinical evaluation. Materials evaluation and selection is discussed, as well as production processes and insertion methods. The author provides an overview of skeletal anatomy and the effects of pain and deterioration in order to put the engineering principles into a medical context. Examples of joint replacements for the most common regions of the body are included, and aspects of clinical studies of these cases are discussed.

Key Features:

• Provides an overview of the engineering materials and processes involved in the manufacture of    human joint replacements
• Sets the scene for engineers and clinicians embarking on research into joint replacements
• Includes clinical and industrial examples and points the way to future developments
• Provides information on medical device companies with an engineering guide to the requirements for joint replacement

The Engineering of Human Joint Replacements bridges the divide between engineering and orthopaedic surgery, offering an introductory text to young engineers entering the field, as well as a reference for medical staff who will benefit from an understanding of the materials and methods used in their design, engineering and manufacture.

Internal Fixation in Osteoporotic Bone

Osteoporosis affects 28 million people in the United States alone. The
need for stable internal fixation of this type of bone is paramount. Metabolic
bone diseases, such as osteoporosis, osteomalacia, hyperparathyroidism, and
Paget’s disease, are usually associated with osteoporotic or soft skeleton,
especially in the elderly patient. Orthopedic procedures in elderly patients are
costly and with the increasing age of the population these costs will continue
to escalate. Great challenges are often encountered when internal fixation is
needed for fractures or osteotomies in osteoporotic bone.

This book is designed
to present both current clinical techniques and cutting-edge knowledge in
pre-clinical research on the internal fixation of osteoporotic
