Pathology of Bone and Joint Disorders Print and Online Bundle

This practical book covers all aspects of diseases of bones and joints in one easily readable volume. Richly illustrated in color with abundant photographs and diagrams, each disease category includes a short introduction, discussion of clinical, radiographic and pathologic features, and treatment suggestions. Fully updated throughout, this new edition discusses the molecular genetics of orthopedic diseases and new imaging modalities such as the PET scan. Newly clarified entities are included, such as failure of metal-on-metal hip prostheses, osteonecrosis of the jaw, atypical femoral fractures, and rapidly destructive hip arthrosis. Drawing on their extensive experience as clinicians and teachers, the authors' accessible narrative style enables easy comprehension. Written by a bone pathologist and an orthopedic surgeon, the book emphasizes a team approach to diagnosis and treatment. This is an essential resource for residents in pathology, orthopedic surgery and radiology, and also serves as a valuable handbook for senior practitioners in these specialties. The book is packaged with a password, giving the user online access to all the text and images.

'For a general pathologist always on the look-out for a simple yet comprehensive enough text to help make sense of this challenging field, this is indeed a very helpful book and I have found it useful on many occasions. This practical tome would sit very well in the departmental library and certainly would not gather dust.' Su Enn Low, The Bulletin
