This book covers the most recent developments in the field of osteochondral tissue engineering (OCTE) and covers in detail the concepts and current challenges for bone and cartilage repair and regeneration. Specific topics include viscosupplementation, biologicals, tissue engineering approaches, in vitro and in vivo models, and technological advances with stem cells, bioreactors, and microfluidics. Osteochondral Tissue Engineering: Challenges, Current Strategies, and Technological Advances presents challenges and strategies in the field of osteochondral regeneration and serves as a core reference for biomedical engineering students and a wide range of established researchers and professionals working in orthopedics.
Osteoporosis is a preventable disease. But each year some 500,000 people are hospitalized from osteoporosis fractures, and another 180,000 people are placed into nursing homes from injuries due to osteoporosis.
What can nurses, clinicians, medical researchers, physiologists, health care policy experts, and other providers do to diminish, if not eradicate, the disease from local to global scales? What are the best methods for care and treatment? Osteoporosis addresses these questions, and more. Designed as a complete reference, Osteoporosis presents vivid explanations plus illustrations of specific surgical procedures to guide in the preparation and post-operative rehabilitation of the patient for surgical repairs of fractures. Chapters also discuss leading components of a patient’s recovery, from dietary requirements and exercise, to fall prevention, quality of life and independence issues.
The authors highlight disease prevention strategies and various models of community outreach that have proven effective in educating target populations about osteoporosis, encouraging proper lifestyle choices, and helping children to achieve their maximum bone potential at a young age.
Osteoporosis can be prevented. Here is the book to help you, and your health care institution, do just that.
This new edition includes the most up-to-date information about the pathophysiology and new therapeutic alternatives for osteoporosis of advanced age. It is written by investigators (clinicians and basic scientists) in the field of aging bone research.
This important new Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery volume demonstrates approximately 100 of the most successful, widely used surgical exposures. World-renowned master surgeons describe their preferred surgical exposure techniques in step-by-step detail and offer pearls and tips for improving results. The book is thoroughly illustrated with full-color, sequential, surgeon’s-eye view photographs of anatomic dissections, with accompanying drawings by a noted medical illustrator to give surgeons a full understanding of what they will encounter in a patient.
Chapters cover each anatomic region of the musculoskeletal system and spine. Exposures are organized similarly to the other Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery volumes.
A companion Website offers the fully searchable text and an image bank.
In Osteoporosis: Pathophysiology and Clinical Management, leading clinicians and researchers join forces to illuminate in coupled chapters all the major scientific and clinical aspects of osteoporosis. On the basic science side, topics range from the genetics of osteoporosis and bone turnover markers, to androgen action in bone, to the basic biology of estrogen and bone. On the clinical side the authors present the latest thinking about the use of bone densitometry in treatment, the use of vitamin D and its metabolites, and the clinical utilization of salmon calcitonin, as well as parathyroid and bisphosphonate therapies, SERMs, and other important treatments.
This text covers every aspect of musculoskeletal system rehabilitation. It extends even further into such topics as alternative medicine, holistic therapies, acupuncture, neurophysiologic testing, overuse injuries, work assessment, and outcome measures. Each chapter covers the basic science of the subject, clinical assessments as well as rehabilitation options, methods, and their outcomes. A completely new look on the important topic of geriatric hip rehabilitation is included. While the information throughout the text is presented in a highly structured and concise manner, the subjects are covered in extraordinary detail.
In this book, leading European shoulder experts review the current status in the management of failures of surgical treatment of different pathological conditions around the shoulder, such as instability of the glenohumeral joint and the acromioclavicular joint, rotator cuff disease and pathology of the long head of the biceps tendon, and glenohumeral osteoarthritis. The aim is to equip readers with clear guidance on how to manage such failures in everyday practice. There is a particular focus on all aspects of the management response to failure of shoulder arthroplasty. Information is provided on the reasons for failure of the various procedures, and key points on controversial topics are highlighted. Furthermore, case examples are used to present challenging scenarios and their possible solutions. The numerous high-quality illustrations aid comprehension, and readers will also have access to supplementary online videos. The book, published in cooperation with ESSKA, will be invaluable for orthopaedic surgeons and highly relevant for other medical and health practitioners such as sports medicine doctors, physical medicine doctors, and physical therapists.
This book is a one-stop guide to managing acute orthopedic injuries. Unlike other handbooks, this reference provides a comprehensive, yet concise, set of diagnostic and management tools to help readers deliver optimal, evidence-based, and efficient patient care. Additional focus on physical exam techniques, emergency room orthopedic procedures, and on-field athletic management strategies empowers readers with real tips and tricks used by orthopedic surgeons at top-tier institutions. This guide is a must have for emergency medicine providers, orthopedic surgeons, and other clinicians, trainees, and students caring for adult or pediatric patients in the emergency setting.
