Details

Heterotopic Ossification: Basic Science, General Principles, and Clinical Correlates in Orthopedic Surgery is a comprehensive, informative approach to understanding the basics through the detailed complexities of heterotopic ossification (HO). The chapters in this book are structured into three main sections: (1) general principles of heterotopic ossification; (2) heterotopic ossification in major anatomic joints; and (3) additional topics and specifics of heterotopic ossification. Each individual chapter is a contribution from a leading expert in the respective subtopic of HO. As a cohesive unit, this book provides a complete reference for students, scientists, clinicians and orthopedic surgeons who find interest in HO or encounter it in the course of patient care.

Index

“This book is one of the few recognized texts focused on the topic of heterotopic ossification, and presents a complete, yet concise, summary of this common clinical entity. It provides an in-depth look into the condition from the pathophysiology behind its development through its clinical and societal impact using the most up-to-date literature. The book’s systematic approach to the topic makes it a relevant text to persons afflicted with the condition wanting to learn more about their disease, students of the biomedical sciences who are studying its pathophysiology, biomedical scientists who are searching for a better prophylactic or therapeutic modality to prevent or treat this condition, and Orthopedic surgeons and trainees of any subspecialty who may be faced with the task of operative excision. I strongly recommend this book.” - Joshua J. Jacobs, MD, William A. Hark, MD/Susanne G. Swift Professor and Chairman, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Associate Provost for Research, Rush University Medical Center
