The Surgical Techniques in Sports Medicine series is the educational flagship of European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedic Sport Traumatology (EFOST), and provides an invaluable supplement to the experience afforded by the international EFOST Travelling Fellowship.

The aim instead is to impart practical knowledge arising from the direct experience of highly skilled surgeons, who describe reliable surgical procedures in a practical, easy-to-follow manner that will be of great value to orthopaedic and sports trauma surgeons alike. This book covers a broad discussion on reconstruction of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) using bone–patellar tendon–bone autograft, hamstring autograft, iliotibial band autograft, quadriceps tendon autograft, bone dowel method and open physes, reconstruction of the posterolateral corner using a single bundle graft, arthroscopic resection of the medial meniscus, arthroscopic treatment of a meniscal cyst, arthroscopic plasty of the discoid meniscus, arthroscopic meniscal repair, surgery for patellar tendonitis, complete arthroscopic synovectomy, etc. Each chapter comprises of clinical photographs of performing the procedure of the surgery which are very useful for the readers in understanding the surgical technique.
