About this book
This valuable resource, derived from Drs. Cole and Malek’s Articular Cartilage Lesions: A Practical Guide to Assessment and Treatment, features case studies that help the reader develop an understanding of chondral disease and hone the decision-making skills integral to successful cartilage repair and solution implementation. The case studies included were selected for optimum clinical value and cover such issues as injury evaluation, physical examination, radiographic evaluation, and comorbidities. Each case is complemented by brilliant illustrations, many in color, and concludes with bulleted decision-making factors that can be easily incorporated into clinical practice. This practical, case-based book is an ideal learning tool for residents and surgeons seeking to gain a better understanding of chondral disease and the many approaches to its successful treatment.
