Knee Replacement

by SKS Marya, R Thukral

Joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee has become one of the world’s most common and successful surgeries today. The Knee Replacement presents a comprehensive guide to total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery, to provide young orthopedic surgeons in training an easy starting point that can quickly and efficiently provide the basics of the surgery. The book covers a review of basic knowledge about principles, implant systems and instrument designs, materials, planning and implants selection, and descriptions of all surgical approaches to the knee replacement. It also includes chapters on complications, economic issues involved, and unicompartment knee arthroplasty (UKA). The chapter on complications offers an insight into the early clinical diagnosis, relevant investigations, treatment and prevention of the commonest complications seen with TKA surgery. The special chapter on economic issues elaborates the reasons for the present high cost of the TKA surgery, with focus on those cost factors that can be controlled, as well as emphasis on cost areas that should not be compromised on.
