There is an ever-expanding range of implants used in Orthopaedic Surgery. Nearly 200,000 joint replacement procedures are done in UK every year. The performance of these implants is assessed on radiographs. This is of interest to Orthopaedic surgeons and Radiologists alike. Information on interpretation of these radiographs is not readily available in an easily readable format. This book will assist both trainees and practicing orthopedic surgeons and radiologists in assessing the radiologic appearance of implants and their potential for future performance.

This book provides richly illustrated guidance on the ever-expanding range of implants used in orthopedic surgery. The performance of these implants is assessed on radiographs, but information is not easily available and interpretation of these radiographs is difficult. Covering and illustrating implants from the neck to the foot, readers will understand the different features, what is most critical, and how to determine the overall performance.
