This well-illustrated book presents the state of the art in suture materials and provides clear, step-by-step guidance on how to tie the most frequently used knots. The opening section addresses terminological issues and describes how the biological and mechanical properties of suture materials may impact on healing potential. The basics of knot biomechanics are explained, highlighting the risk of failure of knots and sutures if their capacities are exceeded. Subsequent sections give precise instructions on the tying techniques for the various open and arthroscopic knots, including the square knot, the surgeon’s knot, half hitches, and sliding and non-sliding knots. The special instruments available to facilitate the tying of arthroscopic knots are thoroughly discussed, equipping the surgeon with the knowledge required to ensure optimal handling of the soft tissues and manipulation of sutures in arthroscopic surgery. A literature review on suture materials and arthroscopic knots completes the coverage. This book is published in cooperation with ESSKA. It will be a valuable instruction manual for surgeons in training and will supply more experienced surgeons with an excellent update that will further enhance their practice.

This book introduces the surgical suture techniques in orthopaedics. These techniques have been recognized as a crucial part for wound care and surgery-related prognosis. Training of fellows on suture techniques is of great importance. This book provides a standard tutorial on how to be proficient in surgical suture performance. The history and basic concepts are introduced. Important issues when considering suture methods, including site infections, suturing materials, room setups, cosmetics and drainage are also discussed fully. Different types of suture techniques applying to orthopaedic surgeries are presented with illustrations. The author strives to implement the principle that orthopaedic theory should be connected with clinical practice, highlight the application of theoretical knowledge, strengthen the pertinence and practicality of suture techniques, and reflect domestic and international development trends to the greatest extend.

Polymeric materials offer a high level of versatility due to the range of applications possible within the biomedical and clinical fields – including wound closure - particularly in comparison to metals or ceramics. These specialised materials also allow for a diverse array of therapeutic effects. Although there have been advances in improving polymeric materials for surgical sutures, there is little information available regarding improving the therapeutic value of sutures, and advanced technologies used to implement this improvement. Advanced Technologies and Polymer Materials for Surgical Sutures provides thorough coverage on suture materials with improved mechanical and therapeutic properties that can improve quality of life; chapter topics include drug-releasing kinetics of sutures, shape memory polymer sutures and future trends. This book is a useful resource for academics and researchers in the materials science and biomedical engineering fields, as well as professionals in biomaterials and biotextiles development and clinicians looking to learn more about suture material properties and suture/body interactions. Depicts recent advances in both the therapeutic effects of polymer-based sutures, as well as the various manufacturing techniques employed in the production of sutures Offers an interdisciplinary approach, covering material properties and engineering technologies, as well as an understanding of the biological properties of sutures, such as suture/body interactions Comprehensive coverage allows both experienced researchers in the area and new entrants (such as clinicians) to learn more about this important topic

Shoulder Arthroscopy – Principles and Practice is a comprehensive and fully up-to-date work covering all major shoulder problems and related arthroscopic treatments. Two sections on basic science and principles of shoulder arthroscopy will provide essential information to build primary knowledge on shoulder arthroscopy issues. Shoulder problems and related treatments will be described according to a learning pathway, which will allow the readers to improve their knowledge and skills in shoulder arthroscopy from simple, standardized techniques to more complex and advanced procedures. All chapters will be written by expert arthroscopic surgeons who will provide decision-making algorithms for diagnosis and treatment of shoulder disorders, step-by step-instructions on arthroscopic techniques, and technical “tips & pearls” on how they would perform the procedure. Dedicated section on outcome measurements will help readers in learning principles of outcome research on the topics of the book.
