Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Edward Abraham, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book deals with the surgical treatment of many adult foot and ankle disorders and fractures.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe proven and newer surgical procedures. These worthy objectives are met consistently. The editor Harold B. Kitaoka is the head of the foot and ankle section at the Department of Orthopaedics, Mayo Clinic and Mayo Foundation, and is nationally and internationally known for his contributions to this field.
Audience: The book is written for practicing orthopedists caring for the foot and ankle areas and podiatrists. Orthopedic and podiatry trainees are expected to benefit immensely from reading this work.
Features: The book covers over 50 different surgical procedures. Not every disorder or fracture is covered, by design of the editor. For instance, only the important and established procedures are described for hallux valgus: chevron osteotomy, akin procedure, proximal metatarsal osteotomy and metatarsophalangeal joint fusion. Several new procedures are added such as the Weil osteotomy, subtalar distraction arthrodesis, and popliteal and ankle block anesthesia. Also, new chapters include such procedures as total ankle orthoplasty, mosaicplasty of talar osteochondritis, tendon transfer for foot drop, talus and tibial periarticular fractures reduction and fixation, orthoscopic procedure for ankle fusion and osteochondral lesions. The format for each chapter covers the same subsections of indications/contraindications, preoperative planning, surgery, postoperative management, complications and illustrative case. The use of color intraoperative clinical photos supplemented by line drawings make for better understanding for the surgical indications and operative steps. The recommended readings are not consistently referred to in the text of each chapter so that sometimes credit may not be given to the originator of a given procedure.
Assessment: This book is one of a series of Master Techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery. It represents a major contribution to our better understanding of the management of foot and ankle problems. I highly recommend it to all orthopedist and orthopedic residents caring for the foot and ankle. Podiatrists can make excellent use of this work.
From The Critics
New edition of a reference that presents descriptions of 50-plus operative techniques related to the foot and ankle—classic procedures as well as those that have changed with the advent of new technology and techniques, such as the Weil osteotomy, fibular grooving operation, subtalar distraction arthrodesis, and popliteal and ankle block anesthesia. New coverage includes mosaicplasty for osteochondral lesions of the talus, tendon transfer for foot drop, medial displacement calcaneal osteotomy, talus fracture open reduction and fixation, tibial periarticular fracture reduction and fixation, arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis, phalangeal osteotomy with cheilectomy, lesser toe reconstruction, and tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis with intramedullary nail fixation. Illustrated with photographs and drawings. Edited by Kitaoka (orthopedics, Mayo Clinic and School of Medicine). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
