Small Animal Arthroscopy book cover

Small Animal Arthroscopy

This comprehensive text presents basic and advanced techniques for small animal general arthroscopy that can be applied to practice. It features clear discussions of relevant topics, including instrumentation, prep of the patient, portal placement, arthroscopic technique, diagnostic procedures, and operative arthroscopy. Over 275 color photographs bring the subject to life, with an atlas-like approach that showcases both normal and abnormal conditions in arthroscopic anatomy. The text also offers full discussions of how to arthroscopically diagnose and treat orthopedic disorders of the shoulder, elbow, carpus, hip, stifle and tarsus, while the accompanying CD-ROM provides video demonstrations with descriptive voice-over explanations of these arthroscopic procedures. A chapter on arthroscopic case studies presents examples of clinical cases to help clarify procedures and possible complications.
