The Multiple Ligament Injured Knee: A Practical Guide to Management presents the orthopedic surgeon with an unprecedented review of the most recent and advanced information available on the successful diagnosis and treatment of multiple ligament knee injuries. Gregory C. Fanelli, MD, handpicked internationally renowned contributors to ensure that the clearly written guide is valuable for orthopedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, sports medicine fellows, physical therapists, physician assistants, and all other health professionals who treat traumatic injuries of the knee. The comprehensive volume covers the basic anatomy and biomechanics of the knee as well as the assessment and classification of knee injuries. Although the chapters build upon each other, they can also stand alone as practical, quick references. The format is particularly useful given the extensive number of treatment techniques that are examined, including nonoperative, arthroscopic, and open surgical approaches. Vascular and nerve injuries are addressed in addition to various ACL/PCL/Medial/Lateral injuries. Chapters on postoperative rehabilitation, possible complications, and brace treatment provide additional insight. The definitive text is completed by select case studies that demonstrate how highlighted approaches are applied. Techniques are also reinforced by a wealth of line drawings and photographs
