Editorial Reviews

Martin Yorath
Written in the United Kingdom, this is the first book to be devoted to the physical examination (including special investigative procedures) of the lower extremity. Although there are books available that focus on different aspects of lower extremity examination examination and assessment, this is the first to do so from an organ system approach. The book is aimed for all who are involved in lower extremity care of their patients, and although written mainly by, and for, podiatrists, the book would be useful to other practitioners and students as well. Most of the contributors are involved in a lecturing capacity in some of the British podiatric schools; one of the editors is a respected authority in the field of podiatric surgery in the U.K. The book is divided into four parts, covering initial patient contact, systems assessment (with respect to the lower extremity), special investigations, and specific types of patients to be assessed, e.g., pediatric, etc. There are four pages of color plates at the beginning of the book that refer to later chapters, and it may have been more logical to include these in the relevant chapters. Good use is made throughout of black-and-white photographs and line drawings. Each chapter dealing with systems assessment of the lower extremities begins with a brief review of the basic anatomy and histology of the structures to be examined, a useful review for the reader. Several chapters also contain case studies to help expand a particular topic. All chapters contain a list of recent references, and some contain suggested further readings. A practical reference to have on the shelf, it should be of particular value to the podiatrist. Although aimedprimarily at the U.K. market, it has enough information to make it a useful addition to any podiatric library.

Description: Written in the United Kingdom, this is the first book to be devoted to the physical examination (including special investigative procedures) of the lower extremity.
Purpose: Although there are books available that focus on different aspects of lower extremity examination examination and assessment, this is the first to do so from an organ system approach.
Audience: The book is aimed for all who are involved in lower extremity care of their patients, and although written mainly by, and for, podiatrists, the book would be useful to other practitioners and students as well. Most of the contributors are involved in a lecturing capacity in some of the British podiatric schools; one of the editors is a respected authority in the field of podiatric surgery in the U.K.
Features: The book is divided into four parts, covering initial patient contact, systems assessment (with respect to the lower extremity), special investigations, and specific types of patients to be assessed, e.g., pediatric, etc. There are four pages of color plates at the beginning of the book that refer to later chapters, and it may have been more logical to include these in the relevant chapters.

Assessment: A practical reference to have on the shelf, it should be of particular value to the podiatrist. Although aimed primarily at the U.K. market, it has enough information to make it a useful addition to any podiatric library.
