  • Description
    External fixation has proven a valuable tool in the effort to correct deformities, improve healing of fractures, and improve outcomes of orthopedic surgery. This expertly constructed reference, External Fixators of the Foot and Ankle, explores the ways in which external fixators are used to reduce tissue damage, reduce strain on nerves and vasculature, and improve healing in the surgical treatment of foot and ankle deformities and injuries.

    Authoritative perspectives from leading orthopedic and podiatric surgeons help to build an understanding and strengthen your technique. The multidisciplinary team approach in treating complex trauma, reconstructive, or diabetic patients is emphasized throughout this textbook. Detailed coverage of the tools of external fixation describes the roles, applications, and limitations of the various rings, rods, wires, pins, and designs used in external fixation. How-to, step-by-step instruction addresses a range of fixation procedures, helping readers understand the relevant anatomy and avoid potential complications. Abundant illustrations highlight the text, providing a surgeon’s eye view of a range of commonly performed procedures.

  • Editorial Reviews
    "Foot and ankle surgeons, whether their focus is elective reconstruction, trauma, or diabetic foot reconstruction, will find this a very useful and welcome addition to the library shelf. It has few competitors and those that do discuss principles of external fixation (for example, Ilizarov Technique for Complex Foot and Ankle Deformities, Kirienko et al. (Marcel Dekker,
    2004) show their age when compared to this one. Surgical Reconstruction of the Diabetic Foot and Ankle, Zgonis (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009), certainly discusses some of the same topics, but at far less depth than this book. I recommend it heartily."
