About this book
Surgeons differ in their enthusiasm for autografts, allografts and metallic implants, nevertheless, all have their place in orthopedic surgery. For some defects in the skeleton, bone grafting may be the only solution. The pros and cons of bone grafting are thoroughly discussed by eighteen distinguished authorities in this book. Their exchange of views and experiences reflects the diversity of thinking worldwide and points to exciting possibilities for future improvements. The twenty-eight chapters describe: the natural history and immunology of auto and allografting; innovative surgical techniques together with results, whether successful or not; and bone banking and its related problems, especially HIV.
