About this book

Introduction

This book addresses hot topics relating to talar osteochondritis dissecans (OCD): improvements in the accuracy of diagnosis, sound preoperative planning, optimal treatment, and procedure-specific rehabilitation protocols. The technical difficulties in each of these areas are identified and evidence-based guidelines are presented. With regard to diagnosis, several chapters discuss the roles of arthroscopy, standard radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and combined imaging modalities (PET/CT and SPECT/CT). The chapters on treatment cover various surgical options and provide an overview of the direct postoperative treatment; in addition, rehabilitation protocols are described for all the treatment procedures.

 

The book has been written by a team of leading experts in the field of foot and ankle surgery from across the globe who have aimed to provide the reader with an up-to-date handbook ideal for use when approaching a patient with a talar OCD. Their reviews and opinions are based firmly on the best currently available evidence.
