Hip surgery is one of the most commonly performed orthopaedic procedures. This volume in the Controversies in Orthopaedic Surgery series addresses current advances and issues of debate in the field, including discussion of paediatric dysplasia, Perthes disease, slipped capital femoral epiphysis, hip problems associated with neurological diseases, traumatic fractures, arthroplasty and post-operative complications.
- Covers the full spectrum of hip disorders, from childhood into adult years and old age
- Presents research and techniques from Europe and North America
- High-profile team of international contributors
The purpose of this book is to give an overview of controversies that orthopaedic surgeons might have to consider when carrying out all levels of hip surgery.
Contributions cover such important paediatric problems as developmental dysplasia of the hip, Perthes disease, slipped capital femoral epiphysis and hip problems associated with neurological diseases. Traumatic conditions of the hip, including acetabular fractures and femoral neck fractures are covered in detail. Considerable emphasis is given to the field of both primary and revision total hip replacement, with special emphasis on the differences which occur in Europe and North America. Like every other aspect of hip disease, the field of total hip arthroplasty is continuously changing to improve both the quality and durability of the clinical result. Finally, post-operative complications and their avoidance are covered, particularly in the fields of deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis and management of the infected total hip arthroplasty.
The contributions in this volume are from an international array of experts in the field of hip surgery.
Readership: Orthopaedic surgeons, particularly those specialising in hip surgery, rheumatologists, biomedical engineers and rehabilitation specialists.
