The first text to specifically address joint disease in the horse! Written by 29 pioneers in the field, the book presents the latest information on basic joint pathobiology and translates these findings into practice-applicable guidance. Clinical studies,methods of diagnosis, rationales for treatment, and critical evaluations of treatment are presented to help readers make the best management choices for each patient. This book offers the ideal combination of solid scientific grounding and up-to-date clinical detail. UNIQUE! Unprecedented, state-of-the-art coverage of the pathology, pathogenesis, and clinical diagnosis of traumatic and degenerative joint disease, so you stay in the know.
•Section on general principles of joint pathobiology provides the background to evaluate and interpret the diagnostic and surgical aspects of disease.
•Explores treatments for traumatic arthritis and osteoarthritis and other joint entities, offering a broad range of options and up-to-date recommendations for problematic decisions.
•Addresses recent advances and results in arthroscopic surgery for the acute injury and results including fragment removal, fragment fixation, and synovectomy.
•Discussion of current research provides insight for difficult cases and calls out the directions in which future arthritis research is headed.
•More than 325 photographs and line drawings help engage and guide you through procedures and treatments.
