Beschreibung:

Articular cartilage injuries of the knee are common among active and athleticindividuals, affecting up to 1 million patients per year and accounting for up to
200,000 surgical procedures per year. Originally published in our Journal of
Knee Surgery, this collection of articles, are written as substantial book-like
chapters reviewing current concepts on core topics of articular cartilage injury
of the knee. Each is written by the absolute leader in the field and are
incredibly up-to-date. Because articular cartilage lacks the natural ability to
heal, treating cartilage problems poses a unique challenge to orthopedic
surgeons. Restoring articular cartilage is essential to relieving pain and
allowing better function of joints. Even more important, restoration can delay
or prevent the onset of arthritis. These are NOT journal articles reporting on
original research; they are expert authored concept reviews of a hot and
contemporary topic in orthopedics. Each emphasizes a patient-based approach and includes "the science behind the surgery." Articular Cartilage Injury of the Knee is a
comprehensive reference that combines the basic scientific knowledge of
articular cartilage as it relates to patient health and disease with
patient-focused diagnosis and treatment options. This book emphasizes the
importance of bridging the divide between basic science and clinical
applications in order to select the best possible treatment when injuries occur.
