The 2nd edition of the book, Fractures of the Calcaneus, is an evolved book, focused on orthopedic surgeons who deal with cases of foot trauma. The calcaneus is one of the most common bone fractures seen, and the treatment practices in most of the countries are still evolving, with many surgeons being unaware of the newer techniques of management, the modern diagnostic modalities and the complications that can ensue. In one comprehensive text, the book comprises all available methods of fracture and complication management, with the best minds in the field giving insights about what is state-of-the-art today. This book offers an overview of all types of calcaneal fracture, with clearly defined diagnostic methods and modern management options; this edition has many new chapters keeping in mind the knowledge updates after the 1st quarter of the 21st century comes to an end. The principles are outlined, emergency and complication management methods are clearly defined, and the illustrations range from highly informative drawings, tables, algorithms, photographs, radiographs, and even some videos that are linked online. The format is simple and self-explanatory, and focuses on the needs of both the average orthopedic surgeon and the specialist foot consultant. Experts in the field discuss the best way to diagnose and initially stabilize calcaneal fractures, the recommended imaging studies, a variety of operative and nonoperative management protocols and present evidence-based treatment guidelines. The contributors to this book hail from all over the world and represent the current thinking of surgeons, thus offering the reader the best of the world scenarios. Specialized techniques have been clearly described, and complication management is well- explained, along with rehabilitation aspects well as outcome evaluation methodology.
