    Deepak Rajkumar Goyal, editor.
    Summary: This book employs a wealth of high-quality illustrations to provide the reader with a detailed understanding of the anatomy and the histology of the cartilage, the etiology and the classification of the cartilage lesions, and the numerous techniques employed for cartilage repair. Detailed attention is devoted to healthy cartilage, to each stage in the degenerative process, and to the response of the cartilage to the treatment. Imaging of the damaged and the repaired cartilage, as well as the information on the biomechanics are provided in great detail. The chapters on the techniques cover a wide range of approaches: marrow stimulation techniques, osteochondral cylinder transfer techniques, first, second and third generation autologous chondrocyte implantation techniques, allografts, cell-based therapies, orthobiologic approaches, and the role of 3D printing. The chapters closes with a consideration of the success of rehabilitation devices and the long-term results of cartilage repair.The book will be invaluable for all general orthopaedic and arthroscopic surgeons seeking a deeper knowledge of cartilage science and will help to dispel the confusion that still surrounds the reparative treatment. The authors are recognized experts in the fields of cartilage histology, assessment, classification, and repair.
