The number of patients submitted each year to knee replacement surgery has constantly risen, until it has even exceeded that of patients submitted to hip replacement. The development of studies on biomechanics, on prosthetic design, and on materials used has led to further improvement of implants. The volume has been divided into five parts, each including several chapters assigned to renowned specialists who deal in an organic and modern manner with the most significant problems of knee replacement surgery. The authors have taken into consideration the biomechanical features, the indications, and the surgical methods used. Furthermore, particular attention is paid to the selection of prostheses and to the attempts to reduce polyethylene wear and stress at the prosthesis/bone or prosthesis/cement/bone interface. A rise in indications for the treatment of degenerative pathology of the knee through the prosthesis has inevitably led to a rise in surgical and mechanical co mplications, and thus to a rise in the number of revisions. Therefore, a wide review of the most common complications and surgical techniques that may be adopted in these cases is presented. The editors have gathered the experience of internationally renowned authors who present the current state of the art on knee arthroplasty.
