Small Animal Orthopedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Disorders

New or Used: $62.54
The practice of small animal orthopedics has advanced considerably in the 15 years since the publication of the first edition of Self-Assessment Color Review of Small Animal Orthopedics. Advanced diagnostic imaging and minimally invasive orthopaedic surgery were in their infancy and formal development of the disciplines of canine sports medicine and rehabilitative therapy were only taking root. Diagnostic procedures, instrumentation, implant systems and surgical techniques for the treatment of orthopaedic disorders in dogs and cats, have evolved and progressed considerably in the new millennium. Building on the precedent established in the late 20th century, continued experimental and clinical research has expanded our understanding of bone and fracture biology, musculoskeletal tumour development and treatment, the pathophysiology and management of arthropathies and new interests were founded with regard to nonsurgical rehabilitative therapies. This new, expanded second edition of a trusted text is designed to keep pace with the rapidly expanding practice of small animal orthopedics while embracing the developing fields of canine sports medicine and rehabilitative medicine. It provides an illustrative, self-directed educational tool containing current information of value to veterinary students, interns and residents in training, general and specialist small animal practitioners with specific interests in orthopedics, canine sports medicine and rehabilitative medicine. In response to feedback provided by readers of the original orthopaedic self-assessment text, references have been provided for each question, to allow readers the opportunity to delve more deeply into the topic of focus if so desired. This book is one in a series of self-assessment guides designed to facilitate active learning by presenting selected clinical case scenarios or applied-research material. It includes contributions from an international group of clinicians and investigators. Orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, internists, pathologists, neurologists, and anaesthetists as well as veterinarians engaged in rehabilitative medicine have provided their diverse expertise and experience to make this text a comprehensive review of the expanding fields relating to small animal orthopedics.
