ADVANCES IN MRI OF THE KNEE FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS

Osteoarthritis is a condition in which low-grade inflammation results in joint pain, and it is the most common joint disease. Interactions between all of the major joint tissues, including the articular cartilage, synovium, bone marrow, subchondral bone, trabecular bone, and muscle, have been implicated in osteoarthritis. Magnetic resonance images have been used to quantify the cartilage morphology, volume and thickness, and focal defects, and may reflect changes in the biochemical composition of articular cartilage.

This book is the first comprehensive text on the Ilizarov method to come from Russia since Professor Ilizarov passed away in 1992. This text covers both acute traumatic reconstruction with the Ilizarov method as well as orthopaedic reconstruction with the Ilizarov techniques. The author’s unique method of cross-sectional anatomy evaluation improves the safety of pin and wire insertion. This book will serve as a new foundation for the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons interested in limb reconstruction with circular external fixation. - Dror Paley, MD, FRCSC.
