A comprehensive text on the anatomy, pathomechanics, and treatment of the foot and ankle, for students and clinicians. It contains 13 chapters in three sections: biomechanics of the foot and ankle, biomechanical evaluation, and treatment approaches to restore normal movement. This revised and updated edition (first was 1990) deliberates on the concept of the foot as an important part of the lower kinetic chain. Two new chapters have been added, on closed kinetic chain and gait, and on the application of kinetic chain rehabilitation in the lower extremities.

This book provides a comprehensive review of the diagnosis, management and treatment of sports injuries to the foot and ankle. The editors have assembled a list of contributors at the top of their field to define the medical management, treatment and surgery for the most common and highly debilitating sports injuries. Currently, foot and ankle injuries are the most common musculoskeletal injuries, thus this book fills the clear need for a state-of-the art resource that focuses upon this growing area of orthopaedic practice. Foot and Ankle Sports Orthopaedics is highly relevant to orthopaedic surgeons, sports orthopaedic surgeons and medical professionals dealing with sports injuries around the F&A. With clear and didactic information and superb illustrations, this book will prove to be an indispensable learning tool for readers seeking expert guidance to further their surgical skills in this area.
Foot and Ankle Biomechanics is a one source, a comprehensive and modern reference regarding foot and ankle biomechanics. This text serves as both a master reference for foot biomechanics and to present a clear state of the research and capabilities in this field to the reader. The customers for this book will be those looking for information on foot and ankle biomechanics for a range of applications; for example, design of orthotics. A comprehensive overview of the science of foot and ankle biomechanics presented in an easily accessible form Normative data and descriptions relating to the structure and function of the foot and ankle, along with comparisons to pathological conditions Multimedia content to support modeling and simulation chapters
Human motion analysis or gait analysis is used throughout the country and the world in clinics for pre-surgical planning and postsurgical follow-up. Only recently have technological advances truly begun to meet medical needs by supplying more accurate analytical data from which to make educated assessments of dynamic foot and ankle pathology. A comprehensive overview of current and emerging methods is necessary for practitioners to effectively integrate the new techniques into better pre-treatment planning, surgical and rehabilitative care, and post-treatment follow-up. Originating as a one-day workshop sponsored by the Shriner’s Hospitals and the National Institutes of Health, Foot and Ankle Motion Analysis: Clinical Treatment and Technology provides a single source reference for the latest technologies and their clinical applications. With contributions from an international panel of experts from orthopaedic, rehabilitation, engineering, academic, medical-industrial, and clinical disciplines, this text focuses on the relevant scientific advances with an emphasis on applications, limitations, and problems to be solved. Divided into two parts, the text begins by presenting basic and advanced clinical applications and opportunities in foot and ankle motion analysis in both pediatric and adult cases. The second part introduces the technological advances themselves from a quantitative perspective. Modeling concepts, seminal developments, and novel approaches are described along with emerging horizons related to mechanical paradigms, imaging, kinetics, robotics and simulation, tri-planar force sensing, and more. The book also includes a chapter of references and sources of support for future research and development prospects. Clinical and research applications in motion analysis have resulted in better functional assessment, fewer, more effective surgeries, and longer-term follow-up care. Foot and Ankle Motion Analysis: Clinical Treatment and Technology provides a basis for expanding these contributions to the broader community of practitioners caring for both adult and pediatric patients.
This concise guide offers an ideal overview of both the practical and theoretical aspects of foot and ankle surgery for trainees and junior consultants. Easy to read chapters cover all areas of surgery, from examination, imaging, and the biomechanics of the foot and ankle, to specific conditions including amputations and prostheses, deformities, arthritis, cavus and flat foot, sports injuries, Achilles tendon, benign and malignant tumors and heel pain. Fractures and dislocations of the ankle, hind-, mid- and forefoot are also covered, as are the foot in diabetes and pediatrics. Written by a team of international experts, the text is an accessible way to prepare for postgraduate examinations and manage patients successfully.
This publication provides a comprehensive guide to the assessment and management of foot and ankle problems in older people.
Featuring original anatomical dissection photographs prepared by Shahan K. Sarrafian, MD, FACS, FAOS, ABOS, Sarrafian's Anatomy of the Foot and Ankle is the classic book in foot and ankle anatomy. Meticulously updated, this new edition captures all of today’s clinical knowledge on the anatomy of the foot and ankle. Detailed coverage of functional anatomy, applied anatomy biomechanics, and cross-sectional anatomy further enhances your understanding of the complexities associated with disorders of the foot and ankle.
As stated in the first volume of Foot And Ankle Pain, man's foot is subjected to daily stresses and strains. When impaired it lends itself to careful and meaningful examinations as all the bones, ligaments, and muscles of the human foot are accessible to examination, palpation, and mechanical evaluation, unlike other extremely structures of the human body.

This book provides a state-of-the-art look at the applied biomechanics of accidental injury and prevention. The editors, Drs. Narayan Yoganandan, Alan M. Nahum and John W. Melvin are recognized international leaders and researchers in injury biomechanics, prevention and trauma medicine. They have assembled renowned researchers as authors for 29 chapters to cover individual aspects of human injury assessment and prevention. This third edition is thoroughly revised and expanded with new chapters in different fields. Topics covered address automotive, aviation, military and other environments. Field data collection; injury coding/scaling; injury epidemiology; mechanisms of injury; human tolerance to injury; simulations using experimental, complex computational models (finite element modeling) and statistical processes; anthropomorphic test device design, development and validation for crashworthiness applications in topics cited above; and current regulations are covered. Risk functions and injury criteria for various body regions are included. Adult and pediatric populations are addressed. The exhaustive list of references in many areas along with the latest developments is valuable to all those involved or intend to pursue this important topic on human injury biomechanics and prevention. The expanded edition will interest a variety of scholars and professionals including physicians, biomedical researchers in many disciplines, basic scientists, attorneys and jurists involved in accidental injury cases and governmental bodies. It is hoped that this book will foster multidisciplinary collaborations by medical and engineering researchers and academicians and practicing physicians for injury assessment and prevention and stimulate more applied research, education and training in the field of accidental-injury causation and prevention.
