Summary Recent advances in surgical and experimental techniques have yielded great insight into the molecular biology and mechanical properties of tendon and ligament healing, as well as new strategies for their augmentation and reconstruction. In Repair and Regeneration of Ligaments, Tendons, and Joint Capsule, distinguished researchers and clinicians comprehensively review the most important scientific and clinically relevant topics today in ligament, tendon, and capsular biology, including their biomechanics and surgical reconstruction. The authors review the basic science of tendons in the hand and shoulder ligaments, the current clinical status of the shoulder and cruciate ligaments, and the latest advances in research on the healing of ligaments and tendons to bone, artificial ligaments, and gene therapy. They also cover the major type 1 collagen soft tissues that are of particular interest to upper extremity surgeons and sports medicine specialists. Comprehensive and up-to-date, Repair and Regeneration of Ligaments, Tendons, and Joint Capsule provides an authoritative survey of the biology and surgical reconstruction of connective tissues in the body, with special reference to tendons and ligaments in the shoulder and knee
