About this book


Biomechanical principles, properly understood, can be used in an innovative approach to evaluate both normal and mechanically abnormal hips. In a completely revised and enlarged edition of his classic on the subject, Dr. Bombelli once again proves his expertise in interpreting the forces responsible for the physiological function or pathological decay of the hip. The third edition, with the new title Structure and Function in Normal and Abnormal Hips, presents more than 250 new illustrations that help you understand the advanced concepts that are comprehensively discussed in the text. The insights gained here have clear implications for the why, when, and how of surgical procedures. From the reviews of the second edition: "...the book supports the author's contention that a detailed examination of radiographs will allow an understanding of the bio-mechanics and evolution of the pattern of degenerative change in osteo-arthritis of the hip, and will allow intelligent planning of surgery... I would warmly recommend this text..." #The British Journal of Radiology# "This book is a must for those of us about to consider a THR and for those radiologists interested in the why and wherefore of this common joint lesion." #Australasian Radiology# "This is a beautifully illustrated book and provides worthwhile reading for orthopaedic registrars and surgeons interested in surgery of the hip joint." #South African Medical Journal#
