About this book

Presenting an in-depth discussion of the surgical management of fractures and dislocations of the talus and calcaneus, this text utilizes both an up-to-date review of the literature, providing a broad understanding of the topic, and a case-based approach, delving into the finer details of how to care for these injuries and providing an outline of the specific surgical techniques that make anatomic repair of these injuries possible. 
Beginning with a review of the general principles of foot trauma care, the chapters then proceed thematically to cover various fractures of the talus, tarsal dislocations, fractures of the calcaneus, and post-traumatic care and reconstruction. There is a focus throughout on the care of the post-traumatic sequelae of these injuries, as these frequently lead to chronic issues about the foot and ankle. 
Amply illustrated with figures, radiographs and intra-operative photographs, Fractures and Dislocations of the Talus and Calcaneus will be an excellent resource for orthopedic, podiatric and trauma surgeons and residents.

Reviews

“This book is aimed at practicing surgeons or those in residency. Fellows in subspecialty training will also find it useful. The book meets the needs of this intended audience. … It is highly recommended as a resource for any foot and ankle surgeon taking emergency room call or seeing the aftermath of such injuries.” (Martin C. Yorath, Doody’s Book Reviews, May 1, 2020)
