Description détaillée : THE FOOT 2ND EDITION

Proposed treatments and follow-up results are presented in detail with the aid of intra- and postoperative photographs and radiographs.

A key feature is the focus on systematic description, and the treatment-related chapters include numerous references to earlier parts of the book in order to clearly link the preoperative evaluation to the treatment.

It is particular to the surgical correction of foot and ankle pathology that the treatment is nearly always "composite" or complex, in that it entails several separate actions.

Thus, surgical correction often has one or more structural components (e.g., osteotomy, arthrodesis) and one or more functional or motor components. The book aims to explain the rationale and effect of every one of these components.

The new edition includes updated guidance on clinical examination, a series of cases demonstrating the composite approach to complex reconstructions, and detailed coverage of the treatment of diabetic arthropathy.


Kaj Klaue : Author of "The Foot 2nd edition" 

Kaj Klaue  Dr. Klaue began his studies of the locomotor system as a research fellow at the Laboratory for Experimental Surgery, Davos, under the direction of S.M. Perren. The rational context linking mechanical evidence with the biological response has always been dominant in his experimental and later clinical work. Dr. Klaue’s early work involved morphological analysis of the hip joint and optimization of reorientation osteotomies of the acetabulum, but his interest then turned to foot and ankle surgery.

His fields of research have included development of a computerized 3-D imaging system for diagnostic purposes in orthopaedics and preoperative simulation of corrective means, development of fixation plates, screws and nails and improvement of foot and ankle reconstruction techniques.

He is the holder of 15 patents. Dr. Klaue was a founding member of both the International Society of Fracture Repair and the European Society of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. From 1993 to 2006 Dr. Klaue was a member of the Foot and Ankle Expert Group of the AO Technical Commission (AOFAEG). He currently works as an orthopaedic surgeon at the Clinica Luganese, Lugano, Switzerland. Dr. Klaue is a member of the editorial board of Foot and Ankle Surgery.
