Setting out from the premise that "a picture is worth more than a thousand words", this book presents a superb set of illustrations, with accompanying clinical data, relating to a series of cases from a single surgeon registry. The series has the benefit of offering exceptionally homogeneous data from patients who have undergone total hip replacement (THR) and have been subjected to long-term follow-up with repeated acquisition of radiographs. This THR registry was established at the time when the Orthopaedic Department of the University of Athens became one of the first centers in Greece to perform THR. It now offers a huge database of unparalleled interest that includes approximately 1000 THRs performed by one of the authors (G. Hartofilakidis) between 1973 and 1994, with subsequent continuous follow-up. The cases with series of preoperative radiographs are of special interest, as they indicate the natural history of different types of hip disorders. In some cases of congenital hip disease, previous radiographs dating back to early childhood are available. Key messages and lessons learned are clearly spelled out. The book will be of high value for all orthopaedic surgeons who are interested in hip reconstruction surgery.

"'The core idea of this book is to provide, through figures, orthopaedic surgeons interested in hip reconstruction surgery with data from a leading registry, including unique, homogenous information from long-term followed patients.' This purpose, as stated by the author, is reasonable and has been met. This book is written for surgeons who frequently perform total hip replacement. It is written by Professor George Hartofilakidis, one of the most accomplished hip replacement surgeons in the world." (Samuel J. Chmell, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2017)

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Wasserzeichen-DRM wird hier ein „weicher” Kopierschutz verwendet. Daher ist technisch zwar alles möglich – sogar eine unzulässige Weitergabe. Aber an sichtbaren und unsichtbaren Stellen wird der Käufer des E-Books als Wasserzeichen hinterlegt, sodass im Falle eines Missbrauchs die Spur zurückverfolgt werden kann.
