Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), 11-FEB-09, Volume 301, Issue 6, Hue H. Luu, MD, Section of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, Chicago, IL -- "This well-organized text on orthopedic pathology discusses topics ranging from metabolic bone disease to bone tumors. The text is comprehensive in that it has dedicated chapters for most orthopedic conditions, tumorous and nontumorous. While some existing orthopedic pathology texts focus primarily on musculoskeletal tumors, this text dedicates appropriate attention to important topics such as basic bone biology, metabolic bone diseases, orthopedic infections, and implant pathology. Although the text seems directed toward residents-in-training in orthopedics, pathology, and radiology, it can be a useful and worthwhile reference for practicing physicians in these respective fields. The organization allows for easy reference of any particular topic of interest. "One of the strengths of this book is that it provides ample attention to the pathophysiology of the disease process. It also includes excellent histological photomicrographs and corresponding radiographs that superbly demonstrate the correlation between pathology and radiology, as well as excellent photographs of autopsy specimens such as the spine of a patient with Pott disease or a femur with osteomyelitis... "The chapter on osteomyelitis and septic arthritis is outstanding. It provides an excellent description of the basic principles of these orthopedic infections and has subsections for common orthopedic infectious organisms. In addition to the common bacterial pathogens, the chapter discusses less common bacterial infections such as brucellosis as well as fungal infections. The schematic diagrams on the pathologic processes are simply excellent. "One of the most intriguing chapters is that on implant pathology. It provides an excellent description of common pathologies in common orthopedic implants. The chapter provides exceptional photographs of retrieval specimens as well as a first-rate table presenting the microscopic features of common orthopedic materials, their polarization features, and the typical cellular response to these particles. The section on prosthetic joint infections is truly outstanding, with pragmatic descriptions of frozen sections, biofilms, and joint cultures. "The appendix section is outstanding and includes useful tables on immunohistochemical markers, characteristic genetic aberrations in human tumors, and the classification of osteochondrodysplasias. Common bone and tissue grafts routinely used in orthopedics are discussed and reasonably presented. Likewise, a glossary at the end provides quick reference on a topic... "Overall, this excellent text provides a comprehensive overview of benign as well as malignant orthopedic pathologies. It should be in the reference libraries of residency training programs in orthopedics, pathology, and radiology. Without question, it is a useful reference for practicing physicians."-Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)Reseña del editor:
Featuring over 1,700 illustrations - including full-color photomicrographs, drawings, and radiographs - this Second Edition is a comprehensive, practical guide to diagnosing musculoskeletal disorders. The book details the pathologic and radiologic characteristics of all bone and joint diseases, including arthritis, metastatic bone disease, osteoporosis, trauma, osteomyelitis, developmental bone disorders, and tumor-like lesions. A section on soft-tissue pathology discusses meniscal injuries, bursa, ligaments, and tendons. Although primarily a diagnostic aid, the text includes therapeutic suggestions. A glossary defines specific orthopaedic disorders. This edition has new chapters on fracture callus; the growth plate and dwarfs; tissue/bone banking-bone grafts; and giant cell tumors and differential diagnosis of giant cell lesions. New appendices cover bone biopsy and fine needle aspiration and immunohistochemistry. A companion Website will include a full-color image bank and an interactive quiz bank.
