Providing specific treatment protocols that can be individualized to a particular patienta€™s condition after consideration of the entire clinical picture, this how-to guide focuses on a variety of challenging and controversial situations related to the treatment of patients with osteomyelitis of the foot and ankle. Covering everything from diagnostic and imaging techniques to medical and surgical management strategies, the image-heavy format of this text is of real value, providing a unique look into the treatment protocols discussed. The chapters are organized based on anatomic location of the wound and infection, allowing clinicians easy access to relevant treatment options. Some of the topics included cover: Am How to diagnose osteomyelitis early in the course of disease without unnecessary tests or harmful biopsy procedures Am How to avoid excessive cost and side effects associated with antibiotics for various clinical conditions that are better treated surgically Am How to minimize the risk of recurring wounds and infection yet preserve optimal foot function after surgery Am How to incorporate advanced techniques like flap surgery, minimally invasive procedures, or local delivery of antibiotics, using case examples that highlight alternative surgical approaches Carefully selected based on expertise, background, and clinical focus, the contributors are both thought leaders and clinicians who deal with foot and ankle osteomyelitis on a daily basis. As such, Osteomyelitis of the Foot and Ankle will be an invaluable resource for podiatric foot and ankle surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, general surgeons, vascular surgeons and the entire care team with practical guidelines to treat both chronic wounds with low grade bone infection and acute limb threatening infections.Med Clin North Am. 2013;97(5):947a€“56. ...
