Editorial

It is my great pleasure to serve as Guest Editor for this issue

of Foot and Ankle Quarterly, devoted to “Arthrodesis Procedures of the Foot.” The role of arthrodesis in the management of various foot pathologies has withstood the test of time. However, in recent years a massive volume of information has been published, making it difficult to stay current with primary and revision arthrodesis procedures involving the forefoot, midfoot and rearfoot. Therefore, the intent of this issue is to provide up-to-date information and review pertinent literature on the most commonly-performed arthrodesis procedures in the foot.

Accordingly, the Feature Article covers the use of advanced procedures to enhance arthrodesis in particularly challenging and high-risk situations. The condensations and commentaries focus on a number of procedures for the toe, metatarsal-phalangeal, tarsal-metatarsal, midfoot and hindfoot joints. We conclude with audio lectures detailing updates on autogenous and allogenic bone grafting to enhance arthrodesis.

I hope that Foot and Ankle Quarterly readers will enjoy this issue, and will benefit from the surgical experience of the authors as much as I have.
