Meniscal Allograft Transplantation - A Comprehensive Review

  Meniscal Allograft Transplantation (MAT) has been in clinical use for over 30 years, yet the adoption of the technique has not been universal. With the importance of meniscal preservation being increasingly appreciated to improve joint function and longevity, MAT continues to be a surgical option for those who have pain following total or subtotal meniscectomy. However, questions remain as to the optimum patient selection, graft preparation, surgical technique and rehabilitation, which should be utilized to garner the best outcome.This book covers the basics of meniscus anatomy, biomechanics and, importantly, techniques to address meniscal preservation.

Achilles Tendon Disorders - A Comprehensive Overview of Diagnosis and Treatment (2014)


This book on Achilles tendon disorders is the fourth production of the Achilles Tendon Study Group (ATSG) and is the final part of the Current Concepts series on Achilles tendon disorders. In collaboration with world leaders in this field, the ATSG has reviewed the available literature to provide a balanced consensus on the scope of Achilles tendon disorders. READ MORE...


Clinical Guidelines in Cartilage Repair (2012)

  This book is the second book on the treatment of cartilage lesions and was realised with the contribution of the ESSKA Cartilage Committee and ICRS members. Whereas the first book is focussing on basic and clinical aspects of cartilage repair, this second book presents the reader an algorithm on how to treat the different types of cartilage lesions, as well as lesion treatment related to age, size of lesions and concomitant conditions and diseases. The editors have attempted to present a large variety of conditions and situations involving chondral, osteochondral and osteoarthritic lesions in young, middle aged and old patients, as well as patients with high and low demands on the use of their joints.

Disorders of the Achilles Tendon Insertion - Current Concepts (2012)


This is the third production in the series of consensus books on Achilles tendon pathology.
Insertional problems of the Achilles tendon can be divided into insertional Achilles tendinopathy (with or without calcification), retrocalcaneal bursitis, superficial calcaneal bursitis and, in children, calcaneal apophysitis. These different pathologies have caused confusion in the literature, hence, this book starts with a chapter on the terminology used in this work. The cause of these different pathologies is multifactorial, but several may co-exist in some patients due to the close anatomical relation. READ MORE...


Current Concepts in Cartilage Repair (2010)

  This book on Cartilage repair is the first production in a current concepts series on cartilage related problems. It is the result of 4-year activity for the period 2006-2010 by the ESSKA Cartilage Committee. The development of treatment strategies has accelerated during the last 20 years since the introduction of cartilage tissue engineering. The best available evidence on the diagnosis and treatment of cartilage lesions has been collected and discussed by an international panel of expert orthopaedic surgeons. READ MORE...

Current Concepts in Achilles Tendinopathy (2010)


This book on Achilles tendinopathy is the second production of the Achilles Tendon Study Group (ATSG) and is part of a current concepts series on Achilles tendon problems. The ATSG has recruited world leaders who have an interest in the Achilles tendon and reviewed the literature in an attempt to provide a balanced consensus on what is known about non-insertional Achilles tendinopathy. The available treatments, the basis on which they are founded, and the available outcome measures to standardise future clinical studies and future treatments are discussed. READ MORE...



Current Concepts in Achilles Tendon Rupture (2008)


The first work in our “Current Concepts in Orthopaedics” series - Current Concepts in Achilles Tendon Rupture was launched at ESSKA in May 2008. The book is the culmination of the work of The Achilles Tendon Study Group (AT Study Group)  which has, over the last fifteen months, gathered to discuss the best available evidence and expert opinion on the aetiology, diagnosis and treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures. Having examined in depth the international achievements and directions taken by this distinguished group of authors, the AT Study Group will present their findings in a special 60 minute symposium at ESSKA.
