This monograph provides extensive coverage of the latest technology and clinical practice of revision total knee arthroplasty.
Thirty years of clinical experience in this field have led to effective solutions to most of the problems that arise with failed total knee arthroplasty so that most revision procedures result in a stable, functional knee with adequate soft-tissue coverage and muscle power. Included are chapters on bone reconstruction and ligament balancing, large structural allografts, ligament advancement, skin problems, evaluation and management of infection, and summary and conclusions. The monograph's goal is to present the practising orthopaedic surgeon with basic clinical knowledge and practical surgical techniques to salvage and reconstruct the failed total knee arthroplasty so that the highest possible chance of success can be achieved.
