Arthroscopy of the knee joint: diagnosis and operative techniques
Rapid developments in this successful diagnostic and operative technique have called for a new edition of Arthroscopy of the Knee Joint. This second edition has been completely revised and retains very little material from the first edition. The diagnostic section has been considerably expanded and elucidated and the operative section adapted to modern technology. The first part of the book presents the external conditions and pre-requisites for diagnostic arthroscopy. The endoscopic anatomy and pathology of the knee joint are covered in detail. Particular emphasis is placed on practical hints for accurate arthroscopic procedures. The second part then discusses operative techniques. The reader discovers step-by-step how and which pathological findings should, in the author's opinion, be treated. Here, too, the problems and possible complications of arthroscopic surgery relevant to the individual techniques are dealt with in detail. Equipped with this book, the reader will be thoroughly informed on all current arthroscopic methods and possibilities.
