Overview

Surgical Exposures in Foot and Ankle: The Anatomic Approach demonstrates the surgical approaches used in foot and ankle surgery by orthopaedic surgeons and podiatrists. This reference contains material covering the foot and ankle from the bestselling, Surgical Exposures in Orthopaedics. Thirty-five new approaches have been added covering the ankle, the hindfoot, the mid-foot, and the forefoot. Each chapter details the techniques and pitfalls of a surgical approach, gives a clear preview of anatomic landmarks and incisions, and highlights potential dangers of superficial and deep dissection. The approach section concludes with a description of how to enlarge the approach. After the presentation of the approach there is a section on the anatomy of each approach that covers the regional anatomy encountered during the approach. Featuring over 200 full-color illustrations, this atlas provides a surgeon’s-eye view of the relevant anatomy.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martin C. Yorath, DPM (Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science)
Description: Derived from an earlier publication by the same authors, Surgical Exposures in Orthopaedics: The Anatomic Approach, 4th Edition, (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009), this book attempts to present the advances made in foot and ankle surgery over the past decade by linking surgical anatomy to surgical approaches.
Purpose: The purpose is to present a practical approach to exposure of surgical sites in foot and ankle surgery. The specific illustrations and explanations of the common approaches are clear and easy to follow. The objectives are worthy indeed — there is nothing like this book currently in the foot and ankle literature.
Audience: It is written primarily for surgeons, whether in their residency or beyond the postgraduate years of training. Orthopedic, podiatric, and trauma surgeons involved in foot and ankle surgery will benefit from reading this book. In fact, it should become part of the required reading for any resident involved in treating the human foot and ankle complex surgically. The authors are well-respected in the world of orthopedic medicine and surgery. A number of other experts in the fields of orthopedic and trauma surgery contribute to the book.
Features: The five major sections cover the ankle, hindfoot, midfoot, forefoot, and toes. Within each section, the descriptions use a well-thought-out and logical approach. These include patient positioning (often overlooked by residents), landmarks and incision placement, internervous planes, dangers (avoidance of vital surrounding structures), and how to enlarge the incision. Diagrams are clear and uncluttered, and the annotations simple. Possibly the only shortcomings are the lack of actual preoperative and intraoperative photographs and the failure to incorporate a broader contributing panel to include both orthopedic and podiatric surgeons. In the global arena in which we now practice, educate, and treat, these might be considerations for subsequent editions. There are still too few foot and ankle textbooks that encompass the best of both worlds.
Assessment: Overall, this is a very worthwhile contribution to foot and ankle literature, and there is nothing else comparable currently. Specific dissection manuscripts such as Mercado's Podiatric Surgical Dissection (Carolando, 1976) are outdated and pale by comparison. This is a practical, highly useful, one might say required, book for any foot and ankle surgeon, regardless of specialty.
