The eagerly awaited new edition of Clinical Skills in Treating the Foot has been revised and updated with the needs of a broad range of health professionals in mind. For anyone treating patients with foot disorders, Clinical Skills in Treating the Foot will provide invaluable support through three key areas: Section 1 is concerned with the general principles of managing foot disorders and the context in which treatment of the foot takes place. Included are chapters on treatment planning, evidence based practice, governance and audit, clinical protocols, clinical emergencies and health promotion. Section 2 examines the application of clinical therapeutics to foot disease and includes chapters on operative techniques, surgery and the foot, pharmacology, physical therapy, mechanical therapeutics, chairside devices, prescription devices and footwear therapy. Section 3 considers the particular needs of special groups and includes chapters on the adult foot, the childs foot, sports injuries and management of tissue viability. With its clarity of text and liberal use of case studies and illustrations, the latest edition of Clinical Skills will be required reading for practising and student podiatrists. It will also be a valuable reference and guide for all others involved in the provision of treatment of the foot. This book has been written as a companion volume to the editors Assessment of the Lower Limb, also published by Elsevier Churchill Livingstone. Written by an experienced team of clinicians who also understand the needs of students as well as practitioners Logical and clear structure makes it easy to use for both clinicians and students Each chapter is self-contained and can be used for independent reading topics Case histories and clinical comment sections illustrate important clinical points Key points and summaries provides assistance for learning and review Features approximately 400 illustrations Half of the contributors are new - more experienced clinicians than those used for the previous edition New chapter by new author on Clinical Governance (replacing old chapter of Audit and Outcome Measurement) Major revision by new authors of chapter on Treatment Planning to reflect new developments and changes in pracice Completely rewritten chapter by new authors on Clinical protocols Major revision by new author of the chapter on Foot health education and promotion Major rewrite with new author of the chapter on Pharmacology which will have expanded sections on topical and injected steroids and prescription medicines.

Major rewrite by new author of the chapter on sports injuries New chapter on Managing tissue viability repaces the old chapter on the Management of foot ulcers and now incorporates the material previously covered in old appendices 1 and 2 on Management of exudation in ulcers and Footcare advice for people with diabetes.
This book introduces readers to all clinical aspects of congenital anomalies of the hand and upper limb, and offers extensive information on their surgical management, including plastic surgery, pediatric surgery, hand surgery, orthopedic surgery, and general surgery. Drawing on extensive research of related cases, articles and relevant books, and over a thousand pictures of hand deformities, the book addresses the morphology, structure, and defects of hand deformities, while also providing methods for hand examination and hand function assessment. The authors are professors and experts in plastic surgery, hand surgery, and orthopedics from China and the USA, who spent over two years composing and compiling this book. Editor Wang Wei is a Professor of plastic surgery, Shanghai Ninth Peoples Hospital, China. Editor Jianmin Yao is a chief physician in Hangzhou Plastic Surgery Hospital, China.
This book examines the subject of lower limb tendinopathy and is divided into two main parts: the first covers the general aspects of tendinopathy, while the second focuses on the specific condition in the lower limb. Each chapter has a clear structure: etiopathogenesis, clinical presentation, imaging, conservative and surgical treatment, and therapeutic indications, making it easy to read. Furthermore, the section on conservative treatment includes important practical application tools.
This innovative atlas focuses on peripheral nerves and provides a brand new approach compared to regular anatomy books. Using a modern 3D approach, it offers an alternative to conventional anatomical structures. It reviews all the anatomy and the morphology of these structures from an original point of view. In these three-dimensional diagrams, as well as in the watercolor drawings enhanced with a 3D inlay, each type of nerve is depicted in a minute detail. The atlas simplifies the anatomy and make it easy and understandable by allowing readers to develop a mental real-time 3D GPS. The integration of MRI sections related to the drawings and the descriptions of the main nerve injuries provide medical students with a flexible but effective transition to the radiological interpretation and furthers the clinical learning process. After a detailed evaluation of the morphofunctional anatomy of the peripheral nerves, the authors present a collection of relevant data on neuromuscular transmission, both from classical and recent literature, ranging from the central and peripheral nervous system to the effector muscle. This information offers a basis for understanding the physiology, the pathology, and the repair prospects of peripheral nerves from a purely theoretical point of view. The book is divided into three main parts: - Fundamental notions: from immunohistochemistry to limb innervation - The upper limb: the brachial plexus and related peripheral nerves - The lower limb: the lumbosacral plexus and related peripheral nerves This atlas also features 261 outstanding full-colour 2D and 3D illustrations. Each picture has been designed in 2D and 3D with a combination of the original editors personal drawings/paintings and 3D-modeling tools. This book is a valuable resource for anyone studying medicine, anaesthesiology, neurosurgery, spine surgery, pain, radiology or rheumatology and is also of high interest to the whole medical community in general.

From 2002-2007 he also completed his PhD of Sciences, in Poitiers as well as several degrees including in Neuromuscular Diseases, acute pain, chronic pain and pain management in emergency conditions, microsurgical techniques and surgical robotics. His main research interest is neuromodulation and spine biomechanics. He has intensive scientific collaborations with several researchers worldwide, e.g., Dr. Kumar (Canada), Dr. Desai, Dr. North, Dr. Slavin (USA) and Dr. Al-Kaisy (UK). He is reviewer for many scientific journals and a member of several learnt societies, including the International Association for the Study of Pain, International Neuromodulation society, European Association of Neurosurgeons, French and North American Society of Spine Surgery.

This handbook is a practical, easy-to-use reference that offers step-by-step instruction on ultrasound-guided interventional procedures for treatment of musculoskeletal pain of the lower limb. Each chapter is clearly structured and starts by offering a brief but comprehensive description of the disease to be treated that covers aspects such as epidemiology, etiology, clinical presentation and ultrasound diagnosis. The equipment and drugs needed for each interventional procedure are listed and the procedure itself is then described in detail. Explanatory images and easy-to-read schemes ensure that the reader will be able to follow procedures without difficulty, and helpful practical tips and tricks are highlighted for use in daily clinical routine. This is the sister volume to the previously published Ultrasound-Guided Musculoskeletal Procedures: The Upper Limb from the same editors.
