The latest edition of this pioneering text atlas incorporates all the advances that have taken place in the field over the last decade. Minimally invasive procedures are now established as the method of choice for many applications in equine orthopedic surgery, not only as an aid to diagnosis, but also as an alternative to conventional surgery. The text has been completely revised and massively expanded to reflect the rapid growth of this specialty, and covers many important new applications and techniques. It also features new full-color, high-quality images throughout. Diagnostic and Surgical Arthroscopy in the Horse remains the most comprehensive reference available, providing both authoritative information and practical guidance on all aspects of this important technique.


"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." Tim Greet; EVJ

' 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.'
