Roberto Rossi con Soft tissue balancing in primary total knee arthroplasty (Advanced Orthopaedics Surgery)
Soft tissue balancing in primary total knee arthroplasty is proposed as a practical text for the management of soft tissue balancing, presenting step-by-step descriptions of surgical technique. The next was intended to be a pragmatic reference for students, residents, fellows and attending surgeons engaged in the treatment of patients who have undergone knee replacement surgery. This book uses "how to" approach for many of the complex issues confronting us in total knee arthroplasty, written by some expert Authors. It is devoted to issues relating to primary total knee arthroplasty - from simple to the most complex. The first and second chapters include the primary technique in knee arthroplasty outlining tips and pearls during the surgical procedure. Some of the chapters emphasize principles of primary in cruciate retaining and posterior stabilized implants underlining the differences in soft tissue balancing and showing the use of navigation system. The last chapters show "how to" perform the soft tissue balancing in different deformities, such as varus and valgus, flexed and stiff knees. Last, but not least, the final chapter draws attention in extensor mechanism issues.
