Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Martin C. Yorath, DPM (Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science)
Description: The addition of "Management of Complications" to the title of this book on foot and ankle surgery suggests that the second edition places more emphasis on that area, and it does not disappoint.
Purpose: In the author's own words, the book is "an amalgamation of ideas and approaches that are not all original and certainly not novel. In essence, it represents a lifetime of experience in the practice of foot and ankle surgery. It handsomely meets its objectives and provides readers with a wealth of practical information for treating foot and ankle disorders from the simple to the complex.
Audience: This book is clearly aimed at practicing foot and ankle surgeons, orthopedic or podiatric. Residents and fellows focused on foot and ankle surgery during postgraduate training will also find this book enormously useful for its clearly illustrated, step-by-step guides to many procedures. Dr. Myerson is a world authority in the sphere of foot and ankle surgery.
Features: The 11 sections cover all major areas of foot and ankle surgery. A helpful "Techniques, Tips and Pitfalls" section ends each chapter. The best feature of this book is the accompanying DVD, which provides actual demonstration of many of the procedures discussed in the book. Another innovative feature is the ability to access the text and DVD online, and receive regular updates, including video demonstrations, until the next edition of the book is published.
Assessment: For practitioners, this book should be considered essential reading and a reference. Its high-quality illustrations and DVD, as well as its emphasis on a practical approach, place it in the same category as Master Techniques in Podiatric Surgery: The Foot and Ankle , Chang (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005). It is not a weighty tome, and unlike multivolume sets (McGlamry's Comprehensive Textbook of Foot and Ankle Surgery , 3rd edition, Banks et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2001) , Disorders of the Foot and Ankle: Medical and Surgical Management , 2nd edition, Jahss (Elsevier, 1991) , or Surgery of the Foot and Ankle , 8th edition, Coughlin et al. (Elsevier, 2007) ) , this book is very useable. A most worthwhile addition to the foot and ankle surgeon's library!

From the Publisher
"This is the second edition of a single-authored text. Myerson (Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction, Mercy Medical Center, Baltimore, Maryland) comments in his preface that "the techniques presented in this text are an amalgamation of ideas and approaches" developed over decades of practice and teaching, and that although surgical approaches change with technological advances, the principles of surgical reconstruction remain the same. Abundantly illustrated with x-ray images and color intraoperative photos, coverage begins with the hallux and sesamoids and proceeds through the lesser toe corrections, the neuropathic foot and ankle, correction of the cavus foot, and seven other sections, ending with the rheumatoid foot and ankle. Instructions are step-by-step, and each chapter includes highlighted pearls and pitfalls. New chapters focus on management of complications. Included is online access to the contents and to video demonstrations (which are also on the included DVD)."
