About this book

This book provides a comprehensive overview of current arthroscopic techniques for the management of ankle joint disorders. An introductory section clearly and accessibly explains the anatomy in question, the portal placement and other ankle procedures, addressing both the articular and extra-articular compartments. All currently available minimally invasive surgical options and the management of various upper and lower lesions of the ankle are then described step by step, discussing the main issues concerning each of them and sharing useful tips and tricks. A closing chapter is devoted to rehabilitation, which greatly differs in patients treated with arthroscopic procedures and those undergoing open surgery. The volume is also supplemented by detailed videos for each technique and procedure, both outside on the cutaneous layer and inside the joint. 

The book offers an invaluable tool for orthopedic surgeons and fellows dealing with foot and ankle disorders who normally prefer to use open procedures and desire to complement their surgical options with arthroscopy, as well as for those surgeons already familiar with arthroscopic techniques who would like to broaden their knowledge of the field.
