Shoulder Arthroscopy - Principles and Practice is a comprehensive and fully up-to-date work covering all major shoulder problems and related arthroscopic treatments. Two sections on basic science and principles of shoulder arthroscopy will provide essential information to build primary knowledge on shoulder arthroscopy issues. Shoulder problems and related treatments will be described according to a learning pathway, which will allow the readers to improve their knowledge and skills in shoulder arthroscopy from simple, standardized techniques to more complex and advanced procedures. All chapters will be written by expert arthroscopic surgeons who will provide decision-making algorithms for diagnosis and treatment of shoulder disorders, step-by step-instructions on arthroscopic techniques, and technical "tips & pearls" on how they would perform the procedure. Dedicated section on outcome measurements will help readers in learning principles of outcome research on the topics of the book.
