Abstract
The ACL-Deficient Knee: A Problem Solving Approach, focuses on problem analysis and problem solving, as well as analyzing the possibility of prevention. In each chapter, the biomechanics, anatomy, etc. that are relevant to the topic are reviewed. There are chapters where highly specialized surgical techniques are presented (v. gr. double bundle reconstruction or meniscal transplant), as well as developing areas such as ACL tears in children, where we are finding a growing number of injuries due to the increase of sports at early ages. These chapters are written by internationally renowned specialists who are pioneers in the topics analyzed. To further enhance the educational content, there is a collection of online step by step surgical technique videos that will allow the knee specialist to perform the techniques presented in this book.

Abstract
Adventure and extreme sports have developed significantly and gained enormous popularity over the past two decades, and are now performed by adventurous elite athletes as well as the recreational adventure sportsman. These sports, by definition, involve element of increased risk, and are usually performed in beautiful, exciting and remote locations or in extreme environments, far away from medical assistance. As more and more people are enjoying adventure sports, unfortunately increased numbers are becoming injured as a result. Future research is progressing alongside the sport development, to allow the sport mechanisms, injury patterns and predisposing factors to be better understood. It is the hope of all researchers to make the sports safer without detracting from their adventurous nature. This book combines the Editors love to the sports with their life as sports surgeons. The aim and scope of this text is to bring the sports medicine' involved in each of these sports into one volume. Each sport and discipline is explained together with their subtle similarities and differences, the common injury mechanisms, patterns of injury and treatment options and finally, the mental and physiological aspects of it all. In this book the Editors hope to deliver useful valuable information to surgeons, physicians, physical therapists and whoever treats or has interest in these amazing activities.

Abstract
This book reviews current knowledge on the diagnosis and treatment (surgical and non-surgical) of cartilage defects at the knee joint. In the discussion of diagnosis, the focus is primarily on imaging findings, particularly those obtained with MRI. The remainder of the book is devoted to the full range of current conservative and surgical treatments, with attention to both treatment indications and results as reported in the recent literature. In reviewing non-surgical treatment, oral and intra-articular medical management is evaluated and rehabilitation and physical therapy are also considered. The three main types of surgical technique--microfracture surgery and similar procedures, mosaicplasty and related techniques, and autologous chondrocyte transplantation--are then extensively discussed in a series of highly informative chapters. This book will be of great practical value for clinicians, assisting in daily decision making.

Abstract
Since the first endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm was reported in the early 1990s, there has been an explosion in the volume and complexity of endovascular and hybrid procedures for the treatment of aortic diseases. Endovascular techniques and technologies have evolved from the initial devices that allowed treatment of only the most straightforward infrarenal aneurysms with appropriately long and straight necks to the scenario that pertains today, wherein a customized endovascular solution is almost always available for even the most complex aortic aneurysm. There is growing evidence in favor of the endovascular treatment of these aneurysms, which extend above the visceral aortic segment, as well as for the treatment of thoracic aortic dissection and aneurysm. These new endoaortic surgical procedures have been proven to shorten hospitalization, reduce morbidity and mortality, speed recovery, and hasten return to normal life, while their evolution and conceptual design would obviously not be possible without the simultaneous explosion in medical imaging technologies that has taken place over a similar time period. The Atlas of Advanced Endoaortic Surgery has been compiled to engage its readers in a comprehensive yet concise manner, with numerous illustrations of real clinical cases. It provides a useful tool for practitioners as they plan and execute treatment of patients with these various aortic pathologies, and serves as a useful reference as this segment of the field continues to evolve.

Abstract
Lymphoscintigraphy is now widely applied for radioguided biopsy of the sentinel lymph node in patients with solid cancers and is considered crucial for adequate planning of oncologic surgery in a growing number of cancers. This atlas presents a collection of richly illustrated teaching cases that demonstrate the clinical relevance and impact of lymphoscintigraphy in different pathologic conditions. The principal focus is on the use of lymphoscintigraphic mapping for radioguided sentinel node biopsy in cutaneous melanoma and cancers at a range of anatomic sites. The most commonly observed lymphoscintigraphic patterns are depicted, and anatomic variants and technical pitfalls of the procedure receive careful attention. The role of tomographic multimodality imaging is also considered. This atlas will be an excellent learning tool for residents in nuclear medicine and other specialists with an interest in the field.
