Summary : This book, featuring a practical hands-on format, describes an up-to-date and comprehensive approach to the management of complex knee injuries. The aim is both to equip practitioners with reliable expert guidance and to foster consensus in a field characterized by continuing debate. Initial response and diagnostic evaluation are explained, surgical techniques appropriate for different injuries are fully documented, and advice is provided on the response to injuries in specific scenarios and patient groups. Emphasis is placed on the vital role of precise diagnosis in establishing the optimal treatment approach, and full account is taken of the implications of the most recent anatomical and biomechanical data. Readers will also find recommendations on controversial topics, including the role of early surgical management, the use of autograft or allograft tissue, and the benefits of reconstruction (as opposed to repair alone) of the fibular collateral ligament and posterolateral corner structures. The authors are leading authorities from around the world with extensive clinical and research expertise in the field of knee dislocations.

Summary : Drug overdose, driven largely by overdose related to the use of opioids, is now the leading cause of unintentional injury death in the United States. The ongoing opioid crisis lies at the intersection of two public health challenges: reducing the burden of suffering from pain and containing the rising toll of the harms that can arise from the use of opioid medications. Chronic pain and opioid use disorder both represent complex human conditions affecting millions of Americans and causing untold disability and loss of function. In the context of the growing opioid problem, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) launched an Opioids Action Plan in early 2016. As part of this plan, the FDA asked the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to convene a committee to update the state of the science on pain research, care, and education and to identify actions the FDA and others can take to respond to the opioid epidemic, with a particular focus on informing FDA's development of a formal method for incorporating individual and societal considerations into its risk-benefit framework for opioid approval and monitoring.
