Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 "An updated edition of McGlamry's is always eagerly anticipated and the arrival of the fourth edition does not disappoint. It is hard to believe that the last edition was published over 10 years ago, in 2001. The book has undergone a complete overhaul, and is still widely regarded the definitive podiatric surgical foot and ankle reference."

"Clearly this is going to remain a very useful book in the realm of foot and ankle surgery. It will still be the go-to book for most podiatric foot and ankle surgeons. The foreword compares the book to Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, 12th edition, Canale and Beaty (Elsevier, 2013), which is not exclusively a foot and ankle work. However, McGlamry's is certainly most worthy of comparison to, and of being able to hold its own against, other foot and ankle works (Master Techniques in Podiatric Surgery: The Foot and Ankle, Chang (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005); Surgery of the Foot and Ankle, 8th edition, Coughlin et al. (Elsevier, 2007); Operative Techniques in Foot and Ankle Surgery, Easley and Wiesel (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2011); Disorders of the Foot and Ankle: Medical and Surgical Management, 2nd edition, Jahss (Saunders, 1991); Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgery: Management of Complications, 2nd edition, Myerson (Elsevier, 2010); Foot and Ankle Trauma, 2nd edition, Scurran (Churchill Livingstone, 1996) to name but a few of the more significant ones). If you have any of the previous editions, the latest is worth the outlay and will be a required addition to your library. Recommended."

Reviewer: Martin C. Yorath, DPM (Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science)
Description: An updated edition of McGlamry's is always eagerly anticipated and the arrival of the fourth edition does not disappoint. It is hard to believe that the last edition was published over 10 years ago, in 2001. The book has undergone a complete overhaul, and is still widely regarded the definitive podiatric surgical foot and ankle reference.
Purpose: McGlamry's has always been regarded as a comprehensive work geared for the podiatric profession. This latest offering is aimed at a wider audience and lacks nothing in the coverage of the specialty of foot and ankle surgery.
Audience: This is a practitioner-level book that belongs in the library of any and every foot and ankle residency program, whether orthopedic or podiatric. Residents and attendings will have a need to access the information the two volumes contains. Anyone else contemplating one foot and ankle reference for their library would do well to consider this one. The majority of the contributing authors come from the Podiatry Institute, a nationally recognized center of excellence for foot and ankle surgery, and there are many well known names among the contributing authors.
Features: Volume I covers forefoot surgery, in a logical anatomic sequence, distal to proximal, and basic midfoot and heel surgery. There is also a section on instrumentation and biomaterials, and a whole new section on perioperative management. Volume II covers ankle conditions, trauma, reconstructive and special conditions. Most chapters have been rewritten and many areas have expanded coverage; for example, first ray surgery occupies 14 chapters, compared to 11 in the previous edition. Finally we have a McGlamry's with color pictures! Gone are the dowdy and sometimes unclear black-and-white representations of earlier editions. Current hot topics are covered; for example, there is a very nice chapter on DVT prophylaxis and a chapter on plantar plate repair. As with any changes, there are some shortcomings. For a book aiming at a wider audience, there is minimal orthopedic contribution. This is a pity, but is not unique to this work. Comprehensive works need comprehensive contributions and professional differences need to be set aside — future contributors please note! Some topics are no longer covered; for example the chapter on methods of osseous fixation, an excellent chapter in prior editions, is gone, while others remain, such as the chapter on suture materials. The historical perspective and some of the biomechanical principles are no longer explained in as much depth as before. However, there is much coverage that is new, and to be applauded, including ankle malunions and supramalleolar osteotomies. Overall, there is a more practical flavor to the work.
Assessment: Clearly this is going to remain a very useful book in the realm of foot and ankle surgery. It will still be the go-to book for most podiatric foot and ankle surgeons. The foreword compares the book to Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, 12th edition, Canale and Beaty (Elsevier, 2013), which is not exclusively a foot and ankle work. However, McGlamry's is certainly most worthy of comparison to, and of being able to hold its own against, other foot and ankle works (Master Techniques in Podiatric Surgery: The Foot and Ankle, Chang (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005); Surgery of the Foot and Ankle, 8th edition, Coughlin et al. (Elsevier, 2007); Operative Techniques in Foot and Ankle Surgery, Easley and Wiesel (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2011); Disorders of the Foot and Ankle: Medical and Surgical Management, 2nd edition, Jahss (Saunders, 1991); Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgery: Management of Complications, 2nd edition, Myerson (Elsevier, 2010); Foot and Ankle Trauma, 2nd edition, Scurran (Churchill Livingstone, 1996) to name but a few of the more significant ones). If you have any of the previous editions, the latest is worth the outlay and will be a required addition to your library. Recommended.
