Abstract

Foot and ankle trauma poses significant obstacles for both the treating physician and the patient. The spectrum of injuries is extensive, and mostly the anatomy is undetected or underestimated until late in the acute care setting. Once the anatomy is correctly identified, surgical treatment is usually required for anatomic restoration, with certain cases being emergent on presentation. Preoperative stabilization, operating room setup, and postoperative care are the essential components for a successful outcome.
