Synopsis: This book, traces the 30 year development by surgeons and engineers in Oxford of a unique method of unicompartmental replacement with the 'Oxford Knee' prosthesis. The challenge to the surgeon is to replace the damaged surfaces of the arthritic joint so effectively that the soft tissues of the whole joint and the surfaces of the other compartments can resume all their physiological functions, a more difficult task than total knee replacement confronts. As a user's guide, the book allows the surgeon to gain a good understanding of the biomechanics of the normal knee, of the pathological anatomy of unicompartmental arthritis and the rationale of the design of instruments and implants. The outcome of the operation depends greatly on choice of the right patient and exact implantation of the prosthesis, subjects that are dealt with exhaustively. The reader can use this book as an adjunct to the implant specific instructional courses available. The book also provides long-term data on wear and revision rates for the Oxford Knee and covers common questions asked and the problems confronted by users. The book is accompanied by a DVD with animations of mathematical models of the intact and replaced knee, as well as full video footage of a knee replacement operation.
About the Author: John Goodfellow practised for 35 years as a Consultant Surgeon at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford, and for much of that time was engaged in studies of the mechanics and kinematics of the knee and knee prostheses. In 1974 he, with John O'Connor, introduced mobile bearing arthroplasty into orthopaedic practice and since the 1980s he has been a proponent of unicompartmental arthroplasty as a better alternative than total knee replacement for many patients with osteoarthritis. John O'Connor was University Lecturer and later Professor of Engineering Science in the University of Oxford, a tutorial Fellow in Engineering Science at St Peter's College, and Research Director at the Oxford Orthopaedic Engineering Centre. As co-inventor of the Oxford Knee he has for many years studied the biomechanics of the human joint before and after knee arthroplasty. Christopher Dodd studied medicine at Sheffield University. Following surgical training at Cambridge and Oxford he became Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and specialises in surgery of the knee. David Murray initially read engineering at the University of Cambridge but then changed to medicine. Following training in both Cambridge and Oxford, he was appointed a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in 1993, and subsequently as a Professor in the University of Oxford. He has specialised in surgery of the hip and knee, and has a particular interest in unicompartmental knee replacement.
