Orthopedic biology and medicine
For clinicians, researchers, and residents, orthopedic surgeons from Australia, Europe, the US, and Japan review aspects of the biology, biomechanics, and surgical reconstruction of connecting tissue. The chapters on the shoulder, hand, and knee could be helpful in sports medicine. Among the topics are the evolution of concepts in flexor tendon surgery of the hand, frozen shoulder, the biomechanical and clinical evaluation of tendons and ligaments, and tissue engineering strategies for the regeneration of the anterior cruciate ligament.
