This book describes in detail a unique and very precise operative technique that uses autologous cartilage/bone grafts for the reconstruction of load-bearing joint surfaces and for dowelling of non-unions. The technique, employing diamond instruments and a wet grinding process, has been developed and refined over the past 30 years at the Center for Orthopaedic Sciences (ZOW), first in Bern and later in Munich. A step-by-step description of the method is provided for each indication, with the aid of many high-quality illustrations. Correctly applied, the technique has been very successful in restoring high-level athletes to competition; it can be applied even in "hopeless cases" and offers excellent late results. This guide will be invaluable for orthopaedic surgeons wishing to master this proven and effective approach.
After completing their medical studies, Klaus and Yvette Draenert were responsible for establishing the research department for cartilage and bone morphology under the chairman of Professor Maurice Edmond Müller at the University of Berne, and this unit went on to become a leading institute for interface and biomaterial research.

Editorial Reviews

From the book reviews:"An excellent monograph on the treatment of osteocartilagenous fractures and their treatment with bony cylindrical transplants and/or cartilage grafts for the purpose of stabilizing both non-unions, fractures, and joint instabilities including anterior and posterior ligaments of the knee joint. . is appropriate to all orthopaedic, foot/ankle surgeons, those in training including residents/fellows in ORTHO and podiatric medicine. . this book supports research in bone, joint, and tendon reconstruction and places complete limb regrowth within reach of scientists in limb regeneration."
