Mastering Orthopedic Techniques Total Hip Arthroplasty pdf
Total hip arthroplasty has evolved over the last 4 decades from a new and unproven technology to the standard form of treatment for advanced hip arthritis. This Mastering Orthopedic Techniques Total Hip Arthroplasty pdf is a tribute to the reality that as total hip arthroplasty has been adopted around the world, advances in the stateof- the-art are now being contributed by surgeons, authors, and scientists from many countries. The editor and many of the authors of this excellent textbook are from India, which is a timely celebration of the expertise and knowledge in the field which has developed in India.
Most impressive is the fact that the book is as up-to-date as a comprehensive text can be. The early chapters talk about the principles, including design and the basic science of tribology and bearing materials. The authors then describe preoperative planning, soft tissue balancing, and detailed descriptions about every possible surgical approach to total hip replacement both primary and revision.
The chapters then cover cementation on both the acetabular and femoral side, and then some of the more controversial issues such as metal on metal hip resurfacing, computer navigation and the use of short stems for uncemented femoral components. Mastering Orthopedic Techniques Total Hip Arthroplasty pdf covers the difficult primary hip replacement for disorders such as dysplasia, bony ankylosis, acetabular defects, protrusio, juvenile arthritis, and, for proximal femoral and acetabular fractures. There are excellent chapters on robotics and navigation.
The book is more ideally suited for surgeons doing primary joint replacements, but there is enough material related to surgical approaches, periprosthetic fractures and infection to be of significant use for surgeons doing revision arthroplasty of the hip. The final three chapters deal with total hip replacement in the ambulatory care setting,
search for the ideal implant, and reducing complications and costs. Overall this is an excellent text and the editor is to be congratulated for putting together an international team of well-recognized authors, and covering enough topics for this to be a truly comprehensive text for surgeons doing total hip replacement.This book is useful for Orthopaedic surgeons, Residents fellows, Rheumatologists, and Postgraduate medical students.
