Synopsis:
Presenting a comprehensive discussion of the biomechanics, assessment, diagnosis and management of injuries to the elbow ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), including video clips of selected surgical techniques, this is a thorough and practical text for any clinician seeing athletes with this increasingly common injury. The book is organized thematically, beginning with anatomy and biomechanics of the ligament. Diagnosis of these injuries follows, with chapters focusing on both physical exam tests and imaging studies. Chapters on both conservative treatment and surgical approaches form the heart of the text, including revision surgery and complications, and review the variety of techniques and expected outcomes. Additionally, individual chapters are devoted to the female and high school-aged athlete. Proper rehabilitation is essential and rounds out the text, including a unique focus on sports-specific rehabilitation. Written and edited by top clinicians in orthopedics and sports medicine, this book is an essential reference for diagnosing and treating injuries to the elbow UCL.
