ABSTRACT

The third edition of Surgery of the Foot has been reorganized in format, but not significantly rewritten. The book is divided into three parts, the first of which deals with biomechanics written by Dr. Inman. This provides a good review of his and other investigators' work that has been done at the University of California at Berkeley in the 1950s. Principles of examination of the foot and ankle and a discussion of diagnostic procedures complete the first part of the presentation.

Congenital deformities and anomalies of the foot are covered in survey fashion. The references on this section are abundant and fairly current. The chapters on fractures and fracture-dislocations; traumatic injuries to the soft tissues; metabolic, vascular, and infectious diseases; disorders of the skin and toenails; bone and soft tissue tumors; and diseases affecting the nerves of the foot and ankle complete the second portion of the book.
