The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee Second Edition
Our practice environment largely determines the pathways that our orthopedic careers take. It has been a blessing to be in a position that enabled me to expand my surgical techniques and research interest in the evaluation and treatment of the multiple ligament injured knee.The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee Second Edition A Practical Guide To Management, is expanded from 18 chapters in the First Edition to 35 branches in the Second Edition.
The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee Second Edition is composed of nine functional segments with each segment having some chapters. New topics in the Second Edition include the addition of ACL-based multiple ligament knee injury chapters, a mechanical graft tensioning, fracture dislocations, articular cartilage restoration, meniscus transplantation, extensor mechanism restoration, outcomes data, and the editor’s 21-year evolutionary experience in the evaluation and treatment of the multiple ligaments injured knee.
The chapters were organized and written so that they build upon each other, and also they can stand alone. This will enable the reader to explore the topic of the multiple ligament injured knee leisurely or to use the text as a quick, practical reference when the need arises.
The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee Second Edition contents
Chapter 1 presents the editor’s 21-years experience in the evaluation and treatment of the multiple ligament injured knee.
Chapters 2 and three address anatomy and biomechanics of the knee, while Chaps. 4 through 8 address diagnosis, initial assessment, classification, and non-surgical management of the acutely dislocated knee.
Chapters 9 through 20 provide multiple authors’ techniques and opinions in the surgical treatment of the ACL-based and PCL-based numerous ligaments injured knee.
Chapters 21 through 33 present methods to evaluate and manage associated complex conditions that occur in treating the multiple ligament injured knee.
These include vascular injuries, nerve injuries, tendon transfers, fixed posterior tibial subluxation, revision surgery, the role of the osteotomy, fracture dislocations, articular cartilage restoration, meniscus transplantation, extensor mechanism disruption, postoperative rehabilitation, individual aspects of functional bracing, and complications. Chapter 34 presents the results of treatment of the multiple ligaments injured knee from an outcomes data perspective.
The final chapter, 35 of The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee Second Edition presents seven case studies in the management of the multiple ligaments injured knee. Each case study shows a different knee instability problem and then takes the reader through the decision-making process, the surgical treatment, and the outcome. The multiple ligament injured knee is an incredibly complex pathologic entity.
It is author personal hope that this The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee Second Edition book will serve as a launch pad for new ideas to further develop treatment plans and surgical techniques for the multiple ligament injured a knee.
