This unique book is designed to help today's podiatrist manage an ever-increasing flow of information. The book's editorial team has studied hundreds of publications—mainstream podiatric journals as well as those from related fields—to hand-pick the most significant articles in each subject area from the last year. Each article is expertly condensed in an easy-to-read, standardized format. Accompanying each section is a commentary by one of the journal's section editors, which shows how the information in the article can be applied in practice. Also included are illustrations and key references for further reading.

Podiatric medicine is one of the fastest growing branches of the medical profession. Integration into the many disciplines is happening without a conscious effort to insert ourselves into the discussion. The articles chosen by this year’s contributors are representative of medical and surgical disciplines that are changing the knowledge base affecting all practitioners who treat diseases of the lower extremity. Podiatric physicians play a prominent role in the development of new diagnostic and treatment modalities. Evidence is no longer presented to, but by the new leaders in podiatric research and therapy. Wound management, vascular medicine, rheumatic medicine, and trauma are just a few examples of fields that are finding the contribution of podiatric medicine essential to any complete discussion of the care of their patients.
There is no more poignant example of the inroads of podiatric medicine into what was once the purvey of allopathic medicine than in the field of wound management. Podiatric physicians play an important role in major wound care societies, such as the American Professional Wound Care Association, the American Academy of Wound Management, and the World Union of Wound Healing Societies. Podiatrists also were instrumental in forming the newest physician-certifying wound organization, the Council for Medical Education and Testing. The podiatric physicians who serve as authors of this text and many others are thought leaders and major contributors to post-graduate wound seminars both nationally and internationally. Industry has recognized many fine podiatric physicians in the field of wound care and has made them an integral part of research, development, and education programs throughout the world.
