Comprised exclusively of clinical cases demonstrating the various management strategies for hammertoes, this concise, practical casebook will provide orthopedic surgeons with the best real-world strategies to properly treat these frequent deformities of the lower extremity and their complications. Each chapter is a case that opens with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management techniques used to treat it, as well as the case outcome, literature review and clinical pearls and pitfalls. Cases included illustrate different surgical fixation techniques, including PIPJ arthroplasty and arthrodesis, tendon transfers and tenotomies, and osteotomies, as well as non-surgical approaches for both hammer and mallet toes.
Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Hammertoes: A Clinical Casebook is an excellent resource for orthopedic foot and ankle surgeons and podiatrists treating this common but frustrating condition.
