Item description for Biology of the Synovial Joint by David B. Archer...
This unique collection of reviews has arisen due to the belief of the Editors that joints need to be studied as a whole organ. Too often workers concentrate only on one tissue without considering the effects that a pathological change or injury in one part may have upon the whole joint. The synovial joint is a complex unit composed of many separate parts, such as cartilage, bone, ligament, and synovium, all of which play a role in the functionality of the whole. These tissues must exist and work together in close, and often strenuous, conditions. Therefore a certain level of interaction is to be expected.
The authors have been chosen for their wide-ranging expertise, thus contributions range from the molecular and biochemical, through development and cell biology, to histological, anatomical, and clinical studies. Together they provide a comprehensive and useful source of reference for anyone interested in the biology of joints.
