Studies on the Anatomy and Function of Bone and Joints

  • F. Gaynor Evans

About this book

Introduction

The various chapters of this monograph were originally presented as papers in a Symposium on Joints and Bones which the editor organized for the VIII Inter­ national Congress of Anatomists held in Wiesbaden, Germany in August 1965. Each chapter represents original research on the structure and/or function of joints and bones. Preparing the manuscripts of these papers for publication required more time than originally anticipated and the editor hereby acknowledges his sincere appre­ ciation to the various authors for their help and patience. He also wants to express his special thanks to Mrs. ANTOINETTE CATRON, his editorial assistant, without whose help the task would still be unfinished. The interest and assistance of the staff of Springer-Verlag in the publication of this monograph is also greatly appreciated. Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. February 1966 F.
