Hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA) using metal-on-metal bearings is an established but specialised technique in joint surgery. Based on the experience of leading experts in the field, The hip resurfacing handbook provides a comprehensive reference for all aspects of this important procedure. The first part of the book reviews and compares all the major hip resurfacing prostheses, their key design features, relevant surgical techniques and clinical results. Part two discusses clinical follow-up of the hip resurfacing patient, including pre- and post-operative examination, acoustic phenomena and rehabilitation. It also covers the use of techniques such as radiography and metal ion measurement, as well as bone scans, ultrasound, CT, MRI, PET and DEXA, to evaluate hip resurfacings. Part three reviews best practice in surgical technique, including the modified posterior and anterior approaches, as well as instrumentation, anaesthesia and revision surgery. Based on extensive retrieval studies, Part four includes examples of the main failure modes in HRA. The final part of the book includes patients’ own experiences, a comparison of HRA with total hip arthroplasty (THA), regulatory issues and relevant web sites. Comprehensive in its scope and authoritative in its coverage, The hip resurfacing handbook is a standard work for orthopaedic surgeons and all those involved in HRA.

Hip replacement surgery is a radical and traumatic procedure that has enormous disadvantages to the patient in terms of postoperative mobility and morbidity. Hip resurfacing is a more conservative approach resulting in less of the patient’s hip and femur being lost, which has great advantages to a younger patient group. The author of Hip Resurfacing is the world’s leading authority on this surgery, making this the definitive resource in hip resurfacing

In addition, Dr. Hugate clearly explains all the most widely used, non-surgical options as well. Written from multiple perspectives, including: a knee replacement patient (whose been through total knee replacement twice), a hip replacement patient (whose been through total hip replacement twice), a premier orthopedic surgeon, an anesthesiologist (who is also a pain management specialist), and a physical therapist (who also lectures and teaches about physical therapy), this book covers it all. Topics covered include: When You Need a Joint Replacement; the Nuts and Bolts the Hip and Knee (including the effects of aging and arthritis on your joints); How to go about Selecting Your Surgeon; who will be the members of Your Medical Team and what they do; How to Prepare Your Home for a safe recovery; your Options in Anesthesia for Joint Replacement; what The Hospital Stay is really like; Physical Therapy for Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery (and why it is so critical); What Can Go Wrong in joint replacement surgery; and Insurance Matters (for the USA); among many, many others.

UHMWPE Biomaterials Handbook describes the science, development, properties and application of of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) used in artificial joints. This material is currently used in 1.4 million patients around the world every year for use in the hip, knee, upper extremities, and spine. Since the publication of the 1st edition there have been major advances in the development and clinical adoption of highly crosslinked UHMWPE for hip and knee replacement. There has also been a major international effort to introduce Vitamin E stabilized UHMWPE for patients. The accumulated knowledge on these two classes of materials are a key feature of the 2nd edition, along with an additional 19 additional chapters providing coverage of the key engineering aspects (biomechanical and materials science) and clinical/biological performance of UHMWPE, providing a more complete reference for industrial and academic materials specialists, and for surgeons and clinicians who require an understanding of the biomaterials properties of UHMWPE to work successfully on patient applications. The UHMWPE Handbook is the comprehensive reference for professionals, researchers, and clinicians working with biomaterials technologies for joint replacement New to this edition: 19 new chapters keep readers up to date with this fast moving topic, including a new section on UHMWPE biomaterials; highly crosslinked UHMWPE for hip and knee replacement; Vitamin E stabilized UHMWPE for patients; clinical performance, tribology an biologic interaction of UHMWPE State-of-the-art coverage of UHMWPE technology, orthopedic applications, biomaterial characterisation and engineering aspects from recognised leaders in the field
