Contents Introduction: The patient-specific joint replacement philosophy. Hip replacement: Hip anatomy and biomechanics -- Hip replacement: its development -- Patient-specific hip replacement -- Future developments for patient-specific hip replacement. Knee replacement: Knee anatomy and biomechanics -- Knee arthroplasty: its development -- Patient-specific knee replacement -- Future developments for patient-specific knee replacement
Summary This open access book describes and illustrates the surgical techniques, implants, and technologies used for the purpose of personalized implantation of hip and knee components. This new and flourishing treatment philosophy offers important benefits over conventional systematic techniques, including component positioning appropriate to individual anatomy, improved surgical reproducibility and prosthetic performance, and a reduction in complications. The techniques described in the book aim to reproduce patients' native anatomy and physiological joint laxity, thereby improving the prosthetic hip/knee kinematics and functional outcomes in the quest of the forgotten joint. They include kinematically aligned total knee/total hip arthroplasty, partial knee replacement, and hip resurfacing. The relevance of available and emerging technological tools for these personalized approaches is also explained, with coverage of, for example, robotics, computer-assisted surgery, and augmented reality
