Tendon Regeneration: Understanding Tissue Physiology and Development to Engineer Functional Substitutes is the first book to highlight the multi-disciplinary nature of this specialized field and the importance of collaboration between medical and engineering laboratories in the development of tissue-oriented products for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM) strategies. Beginning with a foundation in developmental biology, the book explores physiology, pathology, and surgical reconstruction, providing guidance on biological approaches that enhances tendon regeneration practices. Contributions from scientists, clinicians, and engineers who are the leading figures in their respective fields present recent findings in tendon stem cells, cell therapies, and scaffold treatments, as well as examples of pre-clinical models for translational therapies and a view of the future of the field. Provides an overview of tendon biology, disease, and tissue engineering approaches Presents modern, alternative approaches to developing functional tissue solutions discussed Includes valuable information for those interested in tissue engineering, tissue regeneration, tissue physiology, and regenerative medicine Explores physiology, pathology, and surgical reconstruction, building a natural progression that enhances tendon regeneration practices Covers recent findings in tendon stem cells, cell therapies, and scaffold treatments, as well as examples of pre-clinical models for translational therapies and a view of the future of the field
This issue will include 16 articles, which will provide an overview of the biomechanics of the procedure, several surgical options (including how to perform the operation on a fully-awake patient), as well as some novel approaches and a review of one doctors patient outcomes over the past 30 years.

Arthroplasty Around the Wrist, by Marwan Wehbe, MD, will cover many of the procedures involved with wrist replacement and some techniques that dont require implants. One article, Thumb CMC Arthroplasty without Implants, from Anchovy to LRTI reviews all methods to correct thumb arthritis, (anchovy is actually a rolled tendon that looks like an anchovy). Another article details a new way to fix thumb arthritis without any implants. Ill encourage Dr. Wehbe and contributors to submit videos of procedures.
