Book review Introduction
to Podopaediatrics is intended primarily as a basic textbook
on pediatric foot and ankle disorders. Two early chapters
deal with, respectively, the psychological aspects of treating
the child patient and how to take a complete history and perform
a comprehensive physical examination. These are helpful introductions
for those learning to treat pediatric foot and ankle conditions
The book deals with a wide variety of topics related to the
evaluation and conservative management of congenital, developmental,
and traumatic conditions affecting newborns to adolescents.
However, there is minimal discussion of surgical care, and
the reader should consult another text such as the Comprehensive
Textbook of Foot Surgery, edited by E. Dalton McGlamry, DPM,
for greater procedural detail.
The material dealing with general medical conditions is well
developed. A chapter on pediatric neurology provides a particularly
thorough review of the development of the central nervous
system as well as several specific clinical conditions including
spina bifida, cerebral palsy, and muscular dystrophy. Every
lower-extremity clinician who treats pediatric patients should
have a clear understanding of these conditions so that they
can be managed properly. A chapter on orthopedic conditions
has a good description of some of the more "serious"
conditions, such as congenital pes valgus and talipes equinovarus.
The chapters that deal with flatfoot deformity and foot orthotic
management, while informative, contain some duplication.
The book is divided into four sections, with a total of 16
chapters. There are also helpful appendices dealing with genetic
disorders and developmental milestones. Photographs are plentiful
throughout the text; this is particularly beneficial in the
chapters on radiology and serial casting. This textbook is
generally well suited for students and practitioners who need
a basic review of pediatric foot and ankle disorders."
