This book is a comprehensive and thorough compilation of work from across the world that documents the state of the art in assessment and management of the patellofemoral joint. While a wide range of surgical techniques for different pathologies are described, attention is also devoted to conservative treatment and approaches involving mesenchymal stem cells, autologous chondrocyte implantation, platelet-rich plasma, and pulsed electromagnetic fields. Anatomy, clinical examination, and methods of evaluation are discussed, and individual chapters address important miscellaneous topics, including rehabilitation, complications of surgery, injuries in specific patient populations, and scoring systems. Though patellofemoral joint pathology is a frequent clinical problem, its management remains challenging for the orthopaedic surgeon. The editors believe that this book, published in cooperation with ISAKOS, will assist in improving understanding, diagnosis, and treatment for future patients.E x t .
