This book addresses the need for improved diagnostic andtreatment guidelines for patients in whom total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has hadan unsatisfactory outcome. It opens by discussing the basics of TKA and thevarious causes of failure and pain. Diagnostic aspects are considered indetail, with attention to advances in clinical investigation, laboratoryanalysis and in particular, imaging techniques. In addition, helpful state ofthe art diagnostic algorithms are presented. Specific pathology-related treatmentoptions, including conservative approaches and salvage and revision TKAstrategies, are then explained, with identification of pitfalls and key points.A series of illustrative cases cover clinical scenarios frequently encounteredin daily clinical practice. The evidence-based, clinically focused guidanceprovided in this book, written by internationally renowned experts, will assistsurgeons in achieving the most effective management of these challenging cases.
