After an overview of the principles of care for diabetes and its complications as the number of diabetic patients grows, 22 contributions to The Diabetic Foot: Medical and Surgical Management examine multidisciplinary aspects of diabetic foot disease--the primary cause of patients' hospitalization. Such factors include: escalating health care costs, the physiology and pathophysiology of wound healing, diabetic polyneuropathy, clinical features and diagnosis of microvascular and macrovascular disease, foot biomechanics, radiographic changes, treatment of infections and chronic wounds, local and surgical care, amputation and rehabilitation, living skin equivalents for ulcers, noninvasive surgical procedures, and preventive footwear. The Diabetic Foot: Medical and Surgical Management includes b&w and eight color plates of presenting symptoms, and photos of accommodative footwear.

Review of The Diabetic Foot: Medical and Surgical Management:

This book is a must for any practitioner treating diabetic foot patients. With an array of authors from renowned institutions, this book has satisfactorily taken on the enormous task of providing current information on the management of the diabetic foot, while reinforcing well-established protocols, principles, and treatments. Particulalry well done is the chapter on clincal examination and identification of the at-risk patient, which presents key questions for identifying ulcer risk and assessing a diabetic foot wound. Several chapters informatively and clearly address the vascular complications and surgical treatments available. Also well-covered is diabetic polyneuropathy. In this challenging yet common complication of diabetes, the author does an excellent job of classifying various syndromes of diabetic neuropathy, including differential diagnosis, causes, and management. The surgical chapters describe an array of options for the surgical practitioner. Of note is the section on amputations and rehabilitation in which the authors provide an innovative view of amputations as a procedure to enable the patient to return to productive community activity instead of failure or the start of disability. It is a pleasure to review such an insightful book full of information, new and old, that can be easily incorporated into the daily treatment of the diabetic foot patient. I highly recommend this book as an additional reference for those involved in the complicated task of medical and surgical management of the diabetic foot.”- Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
