Diagnostic and Surgical Arthroscopy in the Horse, 4th Edition
From the worldwide leader in equine surgery, Wayne McIlwraith, comes the new fourth edition of Diagnostic and Surgical Arthroscopy in the Horse. Completely revised and expanded, this comprehensive atlas covers all the need-to-know information within equine arthroscopy: instrumentation, general techniques, carpal joints, metacarpal and metatarsophalangeal joints, and tarsocrural joints. All the advances that have taken place in the field over the last decade are covered, particularly in the areas of postoperative management and rehabilitation. This trusted reference also provides an in-depth view of surgical procedures with new high-definition diagnostic and surgical arthroscopic images, as well as radiographs and composite illustrations. There is no better way to learn and master equine surgical procedures!Table of Contents

"This is not only a very informative textbook; it is also a wonderful reference book for anyone attempting equine arthroscopic surgery and should form part of every surgical library. It presents the techniques involved with clarity, and copious references allow further reading where necessary. The authors are internationally recognised as leading exponents of arthroscopic surgery, and this reviewer is certain that the text will continue to define the state of the art in equine arthroscopy for many years to come."

' The first two editions followed each other in quick succession, reflecting the development of arthroscopic surgery in the horse in the 1980s. In the years that have followed further leaps forward in the techniques, applications, and equipment in arthroscopy have occurred. These are reflected in the massive expansion of the third edition over its predecessors. Three new authors (all recognised leaders in the field) have been added to the list of contributors, bringing an even greater depth of experience of the discipline of this book. The book is clearly laid out with an interesting introduction summarising the history of arthroscopy, followed by chapters covering some of the available instrumentation and general techniques. This is a beautifully illustrated book, with anatomical drawings used to demonstrate the position of the arthroscope next to superbly clear photographs of the view obtained with that position...The book is further improved by the authors filling the gaps in published material with personal experiences and recommendations, for example, in postoperative management of cases and the value of antimicrobial and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In summary, this excellent book should be required reading for anyone (whatever their level of experience) who is involved or hopes to be involved in arthroscopy of the horse.'
