The Hip Resurfacing Handbook

The Hip Resurfacing Handbook

  • A standard work for orthopaedic surgeons and all those involved in HRA
  • Studies and compares all the major hip resurfacing prostheses, their key design features, relevant surgical techniques and clinical results
  • Clinical follow-up of the patient is discussed
  • Best practices in surgical technique are examined
  • Includes patient case studies, and a comparison of HRA with total hip arthroplasty (THA)

Today joint surgery is done using an established yet specialized technique known as hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA) using metal-on-metal bearings. The hip resurfacing handbook is based on the experience of leading experts in the field and offers 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 talks about 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 last 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.
