Abstract
This comprehensive book is more than a complete reference on knee fractures and associated injuries: it is also a decision-making and surgical guide that will assist trauma, knee, sports medicine, and total joint surgeons in planning and executing specific procedures for different traumatic conditions of the knee. Each chapter addresses a particular condition and its management, explaining the traumatic mechanism and preoperative workup and then describing in detail the surgical steps, from patient positioning to the postoperative regimen. Guidance is also provided on complications and their management, and to complete the coverage, results from the relevant literature are described. The authors are world-renowned experts keen to share their knowledge and expertise regarding specific traumatic conditions of the knee. Both experienced surgeons and orthopedic residents will find this book to be an invaluable tool that will improve their practice when dealing with knee fractures.

Abstract
In this booklet, experts from across the world, including members of the ISAKOS Knee Arthroplasty Committee, offer clear, up-to-date guidance on all aspects of soft tissue or ligament balancing in primary total knee arthroplasty with the aim of enabling the reader to achieve optimal patient outcomes. After an introduction explaining the normal soft tissue condition in the native knee, surgical procedures are described, including techniques for the management of severe deformity. The most striking feature of the booklet, however, is the many pages devoted to the accurate evaluation and clinical relevance of ligament balancing. Different techniques and devices for intraoperative soft tissue assessment are discussed, highlighting, for example, the use of gap-measuring devices or trial liners with load-bearing sensors to achieve more objective evaluation. Above all, special attention is devoted to the crucial issue of the impact of intraoperative soft tissue balance on postoperative results. In the closing chapter, very experienced surgeons introduce intraoperative troubleshooting in order to assist successful completion of arthroplasty.

Part III: Operative procedure 2 - primary TKA: Varus knee - severe cases included -- Valgus knee - severe cases included -- Complicated cases - recurvatum, severe contracture -- Increasing ROM.

Part V: Clinical relevance: primary TKA: Postoperative changes in soft tissue balance -- Intraoperative soft tissue balance and postoperative knee kinematics -- Intraoperative soft tissue balance and clinical results (ROM, function) -- Knee kinematics and patient satisfaction. Part VI: Patella: Avoiding patellar maltracking -- Management of patellar baja and alta. Part VII: Trouble shooting: Intraoperative MCL injury -- Patellar tendon rupture.

Abstract
Wear and osteolysis are still the most important potential problems in total hip and knee arthroplasty. Although technology in arthroplasty has been improved dramatically during the past decade, the clinical data relating to some implants reveal that many concerns remain. During the "Tribology Day" within the scientific programme of the 2013 EFORT Congress in Istanbul, the main topics included these concerns as well as the benefits of the materials most commonly used in total hip and knee arthroplasty. This book includes the presentations delivered on the day and covers a range of interesting issues regarding metal, ceramic, and polyethylene articulations. It provides information on the current concepts relating to tribology in total hip arthroplasty and offers a critical outlook on possible improvements in total knee arthroplasty.
