About this book


The ACL-Deficient Knee: A Problem Solving Approach, focuses on problem analysis and problem solving, as well as analyzing the possibility of prevention. In each chapter, the biomechanics, anatomy, etc. that are relevant to the topic are reviewed. There are chapters where highly specialized surgical techniques are presented (v. gr. double bundle reconstruction or meniscal transplant), as well as developing areas such as ACL tears in children, where we are finding a growing number of injuries due to the increase of sports at early ages.

These chapters are written by internationally renowned specialists who are pioneers in the topics analyzed.

 To further enhance the educational content, there is a collection of online step by step surgical technique videos that will allow the knee specialist to perform the techniques presented in this book.
