Deformity Correction in Total Knee Arthroplasty fills the void that exists in treating severe and complex knee deformities and the use of computer-navigation in TKA. It covers the principles of deformity correction and soft-tissue balancing in primary TKA in an illustrative, step-wise and algorithmic fashion. Starting with the initial key step of preoperative planning, this book goes on to specifically describe how to deal with different types of deformities encountered in patients who undergo TKA - varus, valgus, flexion, hypertension, rotational and extra-articular deformities - as well as the stiff knee, the unstable knee, osteotomies in primary TKA and postoperative pain management and rehabilitation. This focused how-to manual includes plentiful images and clear, concise text from authors who have performed thousands of TKAs, making it a must-have reference for any surgeon unfamiliar or frequently confronted with this type of procedure.
In the book’s respective sections, each of which focuses on a specific joint – the knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, or ankle – readers will learn how to manage these complex surgical techniques. Each section thoroughly describes the epidemiology, causes and surgical techniques, as well as clinical results and complications.
Filling an important gap in a rapidly evolving field, this book will appeal to all healthcare workers involved in the care of affected patients, including orthopedic surgeons and fellows, rehabilitation specialists, pain physicians, podiatrists and nurses.
