This is an up-to-date, comprehensive yet concise guide for orthopedic surgeons covering the salient points of anatomy and operative approaches to periprosthetic fractures of the hip and knee: breaks in bone that occur around the components or implants of a total joint replacement. The opening chapters focus on the epidemiology, classification, work-up, anatomy and knowledge of the biomechanics and biology behind the treatments. The subsequent chapters then proceed anatomically from the hip to the knee, and will be case-based and focused on management strategies for the particular periprosthetic fracture with either a stable or a loose prosthesis as well as associated complications, including fractures of acetabulum, the greater trochanter and proximal femur, distal femur, tibia, and interprosthetic and interimplant fractures.

Focused on surgical technique and with plentiful, practical tips and tricks, Periprosthetic Fractures of the Hip and Knee is a valuable resource for orthopedic and trauma surgeons, residents and fellows.
