By S. A. V. Swanson (auth.), M. A. R. Freeman M.D. F.R.C.S. (eds.)

Early in its improvement, the subject material of any box of surgical procedure is just too ill-defined and evaluations are too fluid for the construction of a e-book at the topic to be attainable. past due in its improvement, controversy is at an finish, and even though it continues to be attainable to supply a textbook, it's too overdue to supply a booklet that will stimulate dialogue and crystallise rules. This ebook has that aim, it being the Editor's view that the sector of the surgical operation of arthritis of the knee had reached a suitable intermediate level in 1978 whilst this article was once written. 3 vast matters stand out as being short of solution ahead of the optimal kind of surgery for a given knee will be outlined extra convincingly than is feasible at the present: first of all: What symptomatic and actual good points of the knee are to be recorded pre- and post-operatively, upon the root of which comparisons could be made among the consequences bought through varied surgeons or with diverse tech­ niques. The answer of this factor calls for common contract not just upon what gains of the knee will be recorded yet, crucially, upon how those good points may still for this reason be offered which will characterise a specific crew of knees.

Of cartilage and of bone), followed usually by soft-tissue contracture and less often by soft-tissue rupture and elongation. Although the initial cause of the destruction of the articular surfaces will not be discussed (since this would be to enter into a discussion of the pathogenesis), it may be said in summary that in RA the surfaces are probably destroyed by enzymatic attack and by the mechanical action of exposed, porotic, and irregular bony surfaces moving against each other under load.

If this is neglected, either the patella will be likely to sublux or, if it is restrained by formations on the surface of the femoral component, excessive wear of the patella itself or of its prosthetic surface may result. The fixation of a patellar component is easier in some ways than that of other components, because the ways in which it can be loaded are more limited. Even if it conforms to the femoral component, the angle over which the two surfaces conform is limited by the geometry of the whole system, and the patella is effectively a shallow trough pressed against the femoral component (unless the designer goes out of his way to provide more constraint by arranging a protrusion on the patellar component to engage with a narrow groove on the femoral component); thus the twisting moment that can be applied is limited, and the fixation has effectively to transmit only compressive forces, which can of course be applied eccentrically.
