AANA advanced arthroscopy series


Forty international specialists contribute 20 chapters to one text in a five- book series providing clinicians with state-of-the-art arthroscopic techniques for the shoulder, elbow and wrist, hip, knee, and foot and ankle. The opening materials cover the basics--gross anatomy of the ankle and subtalar joints, instrumentation and operative setup for arthroscopy and for diagnostic arthroscopy of these joints. Subsequent chapters discuss surgical options and techniques, managing and avoiding complications, and rehabilitation protocols for specific diseases and conditions. Topics addressed include bony and soft tissue impingement, posterior ankle techniques, treatment of joint instability, ankle fractures, osteochondral lesions of the talar dome, tendoscopy, degenerative arthritis of the ankle, complex fusions, and great toe arthroscopy. The material is illustrated throughout with full-color photographs and interpretive drawings of technical details. The accompanying CD-ROM contains 14 videos of techniques; users can also access the fully searchable text and supplemental materials online.
