Featuring more than 1,200 illustrations, including over 800 in full color, this book presents a stepwise approach to the surgical management of the most challenging cases in diabetic limb salvage. The book covers acute and chronic diabetic foot and ankle wounds and guides surgical decision-making in different case scenarios, including prophylactic, elective, trauma, and revisional surgery. Emphasis is on the multidisciplinary team approach. Topics covered include surgical reconstruction of the acute and chronic Charcot foot and ankle; local random, muscle and pedicle flaps for soft tissue coverage of the diabetic foot; equinus deformity and the diabetic foot; surgical management of malunions and nonunions; and autogeneous bone grafting and orthobiologics.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martin C. Yorath, DPM (Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science)
Description: This new book aims to cover a broad range of topics beyond just the surgical management of the diabetic foot and ankle. Dr. Zgonis does well to include perioperative management, advanced imaging techniques, vascular assessment, wound care, and rehabilitation and bracing of the amputee.
Purpose: The book is designed to pull together all of the specialties involved in the surgical management of the diabetic foot and ankle. This book succeeds in reinforcing this point, and much more so than other books which touch on some of the techniques described here (but not all), and presents the information in a logical, readable format. The author's objectives are clearly met and a book of this type has been overdue.
Audience: While primarily aimed at surgeons, fellows, and residents who deal with the surgical management of the diabetic foot, this book also will be very useful for others, including podiatry students, general practitioners, and wound care specialists. Dr. Zgonis is regarded as a leading expert in the field of diabetic reconstruction in North America.
Features: The book provides a comprehensive approach to the surgical management of the diabetic foot/ankle. It is well illustrated, making good use of color plates and clear and self-explanatory line drawings and tables. The chapter on bracing and rehabilitation of the amputee is particularly refreshing to see. This is an often overlooked area in surgical management. Each chapter is well supported with references, both classic as well as current, and the appendix is functional, if not outstanding.
Assessment: As diabetes mellitus continues to develop at almost epidemic proportions globally, so the complications that go with it will continue. And so will the need for books such as this. Although there are a number of books that now provide in-depth coverage of either diabetes itself or the surgical management of selected conditions of the foot and ankle in diabetes, there is none that do it as eloquently as this one does. This is an excellent book, well planned and executed, which fills a much needed niche for orthopedic, podiatric, or general surgeons who undertake this type of work.
