About this book


Now in its revised and expanded third edition, this practical text remains devoted to diagnosis and management of the multiple ligament injured/dislocated knee and related injuries. Topics addressed in the third edition include: issues of anterior and posterior cruciate and collateral ligament anatomy and biomechanics, non-invasive diagnostic methods, radiographic evaluation, arthroscopic evaluation, arthroscopic reconstruction demonstrating several techniques, posterolateral and posteromedial corner injuries and treatment, assessment and treatment of vascular injuries, assessment and treatment of nerve injuries, rehabilitation, and post-operative results, ACL-based multiple ligament injuries, articular cartilage resurfacing and meniscus transplant in the multiple ligament injured knee, treatment with external fixation, treatment of extensor mechanism disruptions, and advanced surgical techniques. New chapters in the third edition include direct nerve transfer for peroneal nerve injury, management of extensor mechanism disruption and patellar instability, multiple ligament knee injuries in professional athletes, internal bracing in multiple ligament knee reconstruction, multiple ligament knee injuries in the United States active duty military population, knee dislocations in the morbidly obese, multiple ligament knee injuries in patients 18 years of age and younger, and anterolateral ligament reconstruction in the multiple ligament injured knee.

Generously illustrated with line art and intraoperative photographs, The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee, 3e is still the only book available that focuses exclusively on this topic for orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists and all clinicians treating the knee.
