Overview

Written by the BMA award-winning author team of Mike Edmonds and Alethea Foster

Aimed at podiatrists, nurses, physicians, surgeons, orthotists and all other members of the multidisciplinary diabetic foot team, Managing the Diabetic Foot, Second Edition, remains a “must-have” for all those interested in diabetes and the diabetic foot.


The chapter on amputation has been expanded as has the overall surgical focus. Metabolic control and all other aspects of management have also been extensively updated. There is a new introductory chapter which describes the assessment of the diabetic foot, incorporating an illustrated section on differential diagnosis. Furthermore, the content aids the implementation of the NICE guidelines and the ‘National Service Framework for Diabetes’.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martin C. Yorath, DPM (Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science)
Description: This pocket-sized book provides a succinct overview of the challenging and complex area of clinical management of the diabetic foot. The first edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: The purpose is to reinforce the multidisciplinary approach that is necessary with diabetic patients, and while there are several on this subject, there are few, if any which provide this type of breadth in such a small volume. The concept of early diagnosis and treatment is reinforced throughout.
Audience: Aimed at all involved in the management of the diabetic foot, both medical and nonmedical, the book sends its message to the target audiences well. Michael Edmonds and Ali Foster are a British Medical Association co-author award winning team, and are well respected within this field.
Features: The book is arranged into six sections, covering all of the clinical conditions from the "normal" diabetic foot through to the unsalvageable foot. Each section is color coded for easy reference, with an appendix covering differential diagnosis for the foot in diabetes. Overall, it is a very easy book to use and read. Color photography is extensively used throughout, and imaging studies are well reproduced. Tables are frequently used as well. References are not cited, but there is a short further reading list at the end of the book.
Assessment: This is an excellent book, and while there are more extensive books available, few are able to put it together as neatly and simply as this one does. The second edition is justified for its enhanced coverage of the neuropathic foot, metabolic management, amputee management, and some aspects of surgical management. While clearly aimed at the U.K. market, the general principles discussed here are just as valid in the United States. It is highly recommended.
