Learn the basic science, assessment, andmanagement techniques for treating cartilage injuries!

From the fundamentals of normal cartilage structure and function, to focused discussion of medical and surgical treatments for injuries in specific joints, Cartilage Injury in the Athlete provides authoritative coverage of all facets of managing cartilage injury and loss. Providing a complete overview of techniques, this text helps the clinician serve the large population of younger patients with cartilage damage who are not yet candidates for joint arthroplasty.This book opens with review of anatomy and describes the response of articular cartilage to injury, followed by the clinical assessment of the injury. It covers nonoperative and operative approaches as well as the adjunctive procedures that often supplement cartilage restorative and repair surgery. Nearly 350 illustrations facilitate the understanding of examination and operative techniques, including arthroscopic debridement, electrothermal chondroplasty,marrow stimulation, osteochondral autograft transfer (OATS/Mosaicplasty), autologous chondrocyte implantation, and osteochondral allografting. The text also addresses joint specific injuries in the shoulder, elbow, and ankle that are often neglected in other literature.Key Features: Thorough overview of normal cartilage anatomy and cartilage response to injury helps illuminate healing processes and appropriate treatment techniques
