Arthroplasty is one of the most dynamic and rapidly expanding spheres of orthopedics and medical science. The successive stages of development of the technique of joint replacement include introduction of uncemented implants, emergence of biomaterials and ceramics, and evolution of bearing surfaces. Last but not least, credit to the success of arthroplasty is attributed to continuous improvements in surgical technique and introduction of mini-invasive techniques during the last decade. All these contribute to the tremendous success and unusual popularity of the intervention. As a result, it is not a surprise that the number of arthroplasties increases steadily every year and nowadays more than one million patients undergo the procedure annually worldwide. Moreover, based on the global aging of the population and higher arthritis prevalence, the demand for the procedure is expected to increase
The purpose of this book is to provide an overview of the up-to-date developments in orthopedic surgery. It is a sequel of a successful series dedicated to one of the fastest growing fields in orthopedics - arthroplasty. Aiming at dissemination of scientific research this book provides a profound overview of the recent evolution of technology and surgical techniques.
The process of improving care for patients and standards of treatment requires straightforward access to up-to-date research and knowledge. The format of the publication allows easy and quick reference to shared ideas and concepts. We hope, that the current book will add significant contribution to the success of this endeavor.
New technologies, improvements in implant design and advances in surgical technique have yielded favorable outcomes after joint replacement and decreased rate of complications.
In short-term perspective mini-invasive surgery may offer certain advantages. However, successful clinical outcome after arthroplasty is a function of stable and long-lasting fixation of the implant. This in addition to a pain-free joint with a functional range of motion defines the arthroplasty as successful ....
