Book review of
Textbook of Bunion Surgery from the Journal of the American
Podiatric Medical Association:
"Twenty years after its first
edition, this textbook is the product of only seven contributing
authors who, still from the Department of Podiatric Surgery
at the California College of Podiatric Medicine, represent
a broader background of training and philosophy than in
the two previous editions. All of the chapters have been
thoroughly reviewed and updated to reflect changes in the
criteria and selection of procedures based on outcome studies
and the authors' personal experiences.
A chapter on first metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis
is the lone new chapter while the large number of osteotomy
procedures are presented with a good variety of fixation,
including newer devices such as soft-tissue anchors and external
fixators. Preoperative evaluation remains a strong feature,
and there is a definitive reorganization and improvement in
the chapters on lapidus and postoperative complications. Probably
the most remarkable updates are evident in the ever-changing
field of implant procedures, although the lack of a thorough
evaluation of the newer two-component implants may be indicative
of their general lack of acceptance to date.
Unfortunately, the chapter on implant complications
is disappointingly shallow. Also lacking is an in-depth review
of the anatomy of the deformity and the classic papers that
defined it, as well as a chapter dealing with juvenile hallux
abducto valgus. The illustrated drawings are generally clean
and simple but lack uniformity, which can be distracting at
This reference textbook stands alone and has a nice
format. Overall, it accomplishes the editor's goal "to enable
students, residents and foot surgeons to better understand,
evaluate, and treat the various bunion deformities with more
predictable and favorable outcomes." In the future, look for
good valid outcomes studies to better define the success of
hallux abducto valgus surgery. "
