Addressing the needs of orthopedic, pathology, and radiology residents in training and the practice needs of specialists in these disciplines, this book covers basic science of bone and cartilage tissue with an eye toward practical diagnostic application. Although the book is intended as a diagnostic aid, relevant clinical material and current therapeutic suggestions have been included. Coverage includes skeletal and extraskeletal calcification and ossification syndromes, metabolic bone disease, osteomyelitis and septic arthritis, and various types of bone, cartilage, and vascular tumors, cysts, and lesions. Other subjects covered include osteonecrosis, synovium, implant pathology, and soft tissue pathology. The art program includes color and b&w micro- and radiographic images, clinical photos, dissection photos, and illustrations. A glossary is included. Appendices offer concise explanations of diagnostic equipment and procedures used in the field, classification scales, and background on bone and tissue grafts and tissue banking. Vigorita is professor of pathology and orthopedic surgery at SUNY Downstate Medical Center.
