"This is the second edition of a single-authored text. Myerson (Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction, Mercy Medical Center, Baltimore, Maryland) comments in his preface that "the techniques presented in this text are an amalgamation of ideas and approaches" developed over decades of practice and teaching, and that although surgical approaches change with technological advances, the principles of surgical reconstruction remain the same. Abundantly illustrated with x-ray images and color intraoperative photos, coverage begins with the hallux and sesamoids and proceeds through the lesser toe corrections, the neuropathic foot and ankle, correction of the cavus foot, and seven other sections, ending with the rheumatoid foot and ankle. Instructions are step-by-step, and each chapter includes highlighted pearls and pitfalls. New chapters focus on management of complications. Included is online access to the contents and to video demonstrations (which are also on the included DVD)."
