Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage of progress in the major areas of chemical research. Written by experts in their specialist fields the series creates a unique service for the active research chemist, supplying regular critical in-depth accounts of progress in particular areas of chemistry. For over 80 years the Royal Society of Chemistry and its predecessor, the Chemical Society, have been publishing reports charting developments in chemistry, which originally took the form of Annual Reports. However, by 1967 the whole spectrum of chemistry could no longer be contained within one volume and the series Specialist Periodical Reports was born. The Annual Reports themselves still existed but were divided into two, and subsequently three, volumes covering Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry. For more general coverage of the highlights in chemistry they remain a 'must'. Since that time the SPR series has altered according to the fluctuating degree of activity in various fields of chemistry. Some titles have remained unchanged, while others have altered their emphasis along with their titles; some have been combined under a new name whereas others have had to be discontinued.
Hip resurfacing arthroplasty (HRA) using metal-on-metal bearings is one of the fastest growing areas of joint surgery. Based on the experience of leading experts in the field, this bookÃ¿provides a comprehensive reference on all aspects of this important procedure.
The first part of the book reviews and compares all the major hip resurfacing prostheses, their key design features, relevant surgical techniques and clinical results. Part two discusses clinical follow-up of the hip resurfacing patient, including pre- and post-operative examination, acoustic phenomena and rehabilitation. It goes on to cover the use of techniques such as radiography and metal ion measurement, as well bone scans, ultrasound, CT, MRI, PET and DEXA, to evaluate hip resurfacings. Part three reviews best practice in surgical technique, focusing on such topics as the modified posterior and anterior approaches, instrumentation, anesthesia and revision surgery. Using extensive retrieval studies, part four includes examples of the main failure modes. The final part of the book includes patients' own experiences, a comparison of HRA with total hip arthroplasty (THA), regulatory issues and relevant web sites.
