Product information Computer Navigated and Handheld Robotic Knee Arthroplasty

Computer Navigated and Handheld Robotic Knee Arthroplasty: An Illustrative Guide is a compendium of principles and practices of using technology to improve outcomes of partial and total knee arthroplasty. The first two chapters describe the basics of computer-assisted surgery and setting up the operation theater. Chapters 3 and 4 describe varus and valgus deformities, and their association with sagittal plane deformity. The interplay and influence of one over the other are described with the help of clinical pictures and case examples. Chapters 5 and 6 include severe sagittal plane deformity (full flexion deformity, recurvatum) and an algorithmic approach to correct both. Chapters 7 to 9 are on complex cases such as extra-articular deformity, implants in situ, etc., and describe the principles of managing these complex cases with representative examples. Chapters 10 and 11 cover partial and total knee arthroplasty with handheld robotics. This new technology helps in better assessment of soft tissue behavior and aids in improved implantation, considering individual knee kinematics.

What is an e-book?

An e-book is an electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file. The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats. For both formats, you need software to display the documents on your reading device. This software is not part of the e-book download.

What is the PDF format?
Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.

Is an Internet connection required to read an e-book?
An Internet connection is required only to download the e-book to the reader. Once the download is complete, you can view and read the e-book without an Internet connection.

Are e-books copy-protected?
E-books from Thieme Publishing Group are provided with DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection from Vitalsource

On how many devices can I read the e-book?
You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Can I exchange/return an e-book?
E-books are products that are not suitable for return due to their nature. Just like downloads of other electronic files (movies, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
