Arthroscopic Laser Surgery: Clinical Applications
Allen T. Brillhart
Springer-Verlag, 1995 - Medical - 299 pages
Arthroscopic Laser Surgery: Clinical Applications is designed to introduce the use of lasers to the orthopaedic surgeon who performs arthroscopic surgery and is the first text of its kind entirely devoted to the unification of these two exciting technologies.
This groundbreaking work examines the following subjects: - the basic sciences of laser arthroscopy as well as the history of its development - techniques for arthroscopic laser applications in the knee, for carpal tunnel release, ankle, shoulder, and much more - practical, clinical guidelines on its advantages, disadvantages, and complications - technical overview of the laser systems currently in use in the United States and worldwide - important safety measures and administrative issues - glossary of terms and reference sources.
Each chapter is written by an arthroscopic laser surgeon distinguished in both his knowledge of the topic addressed as well as by his expertise with that specific laser arthroscopic system. Over 120 full-color illustrations enhance the presentation. The definitive text of arthroscopic laser surgery applications and technique, this volume is a must-have information source for all orthopaedic surgeons.
