This book introduces the exciting field of orthobiology, which will usher in a new array of therapeutic approaches that stimulate the body’s natural resources to regenerate musculoskeletal tissues damaged by trauma or disease. The book addresses a range of key topics and discusses emerging approaches that promise to offer effective alternatives to traditional treatments for injuries to bone, cartilage, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It explains in detail how a variety of innovative products, including biomaterials, growth factors, and autogenous cells, together provide the basis for the regeneration of these musculoskeletal structures and how recent scientific progress has created unique opportunities to address pathological situations that until recently have been treated with unsatisfactory results. The authors are experts from across the world who come together to provide a truly global overview. The book is published in collaboration with ISAKOS. It will be invaluable for all with an interest in this area of medicine, which has already attained huge popularity in Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine and has also attracted the attention of the lay public.
An Orthopaedics Guide for Today s GP
This practical handbook is an essential reference for GPs when dealing with musculoskeletal disorders, as well as a useful exam prep aid for the common MSK cases that occur in the CSA. Responding to increasing pressures on GPs to reduce the number of referrals and treat more patients in the community, the book covers a breadth of orthopaedic disorders, with clear colour photographs and diagrams to demonstrate techniques in practice. Chapters are authored by experts in each disorder with GP input, putting a strong focus on diagnosis and easy-to-follow processes for deciding courses of action and investigation. Each section explores the range of treatment options for that topic, including step-by-step injection techniques where relevant, and signposts need-to-know areas with ‘red flags’. This is an important reach-for guide to assist GPs with easy diagnosis and to provide clear direction on next recommended steps.It will also be useful for medical students taking orthopaedics modules.
Operative Orthopaedics The Stanmore Guide
Operative Orthopaedics is a definitive and comprehensive guide to elective orthopaedic surgery for trainees preparing for FRCS and surgeons at MRCS level. With the emphasis on techniques employed and the reasoning behind them, this book is both a practical instruction manual and a revision tool. Based on the authoritative 'Stanmore course' run by the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Operative Orthopaedics covers all aspects of elective orthopaedic surgery as assessed by the FRCS Higher Specialty exams. Surgery of the upper limb, lower limb and spine is explained from preoperative planning through technique and potential complications. Specialist areas such as tumour surgery, paediatric surgery and limb reconstruction are also included. Each chapter concludes with key references and sample viva voce questions and answers to extend and reinforce learning.
This concise postgraduate textbook of Pediatric Orthopedics focuses firmly on treatment, allowing trainee orthopedic surgeons to make an informed contribution during their Pediatrics rotation and to speak confidently about the approach to individual patients during their specialty exams. While other textbooks concentrate on theory and the comprehensive presentation of all treatment options, Paediatric Orthopaedics: A system of decision-making provides detailed practical insight into available treatments and a strategy for determining which treatment to follow in particular circumstances. Its aim is thereby to provide the gold standard for practice in the field and to be the key practical source of reference for trainees.
Given the strong current attention of orthopaedic, biomechanical, and biomedical engineering research on translational capabilities for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of clinical disease states, the need for reviews of the state-of-art and current needs in orthopaedics is very timely. Orthopaedic Biomechanics provides an in-depth review of the current knowledge of orthopaedic biomechanics across all tissues in the musculoskeletal system, at all size scales, and with direct relevance to engineering and clinical applications. Discussing the relationship between mechanical loading, function, and biological performance, it first reviews basic structure-function relationships for most major orthopedic tissue types followed by the most-relevant structures of the body. It then addresses multiscale modeling and biologic considerations. It concludes with a look at applications of biomechanics, focusing on recent advances in theory, technology and applied engineering approaches. With contributions from leaders in the field, the book presents state-of-the-art findings, techniques, and perspectives. Much of orthopaedic, biomechanical, and biomedical engineering research is directed at the translational capabilities for the "real world". Addressing this from the perspective of diagnostics, prevention, and treatment in orthopaedic biomechanics, the book supplies novel perspectives for the interdisciplinary approaches required to translate orthopaedic biomechanics to today’s real world.
A concise, illustrated guide presents gentle movements for relieving pain, increasing range of motion, releasing tension and improving posture, in a resource that also includes human-interest stories and client examples. Original.
Apley s System of Orthopaedics and Fractures Ninth Edition
Since the publication of the first edition in 1959, Apley's System of Orthopaedics and Fractures has been an essential textbook for those seeking to understand the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system, its diseases, and its response to trauma. As the leading textbook of modern orthopaedics for over 50 years, this book is a testament to the late Alan Apley's skills as a teacher, and the care and forethought he brought to the presentation of the content. The current authors have developed and extended this foundation to produce a thoroughly modern textbook of orthopaedic surgery, bringing contemporary expertise while retaining the book's characteristic philosophy and approach. They are joined by a selection of expert contributors from around the world who provide added material on a wide variety of subjects— including radiology, open fractures, neuromuscular disorders, and inflammatory arthropathies. This ninth edition echoes its predecessors in following Apley's approach to the orthopaedic patient. As before, the work is divided into three sections: General Orthopaedics, Regional Orthopaedics, and Fractures and Joint Injuries. The material has been fully updated and revised and includes more than 1,000 illustrations. Apley's System's wide readership of practicing orthopaedic surgeons, postgraduate trainees and residents in orthopaedics and general surgery, A&E specialists, and physiotherapists is evidence of the authors' ability to instruct and inspire. The book is a truly fitting introduction to modern-day orthopaedics.
100 Cases in Orthopaedics and Rheumatology
A 24-year-old woman attends rheumatology outpatients with an eight-week history of painful hands. On examination she is tearful and thin. You are the medic on duty... 100 Cases in Orthopaedics and Rheumatology presents 100 scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in orthopaedic and rheumatology clinics, or in the emergency department. A succinct summary of the patient's history, examination and initial investigations, with clinical and/or imaging photographs, is followed by questions on the diagnosis and management of each case. The answer includes a detailed discussion on each topic, with further illustration where appropriate, providing an essential revision aid as well as a practical guide for students and junior doctors. Making clinical decisions and choosing the best course of action is one of the most challenging and difficult parts of training to become a doctor. These cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important symptoms and signs and, where appropriate, their relationship to other medical conditions, and to develop their diagnostic and management skills.
