Myopathies and Tendinopathies of the Diabetic Foot:: Anatomy, Pathomechanics, and Imaging is a unique reference of valuable instructive data that reinforces the understanding of myopathies and tendinopathies related to diabetes-induced Charcot Foot. Diabetic myopathies usually precede other complications (i.e. deformity, ulceration, infection) seen in the diabetic foot. Oftentimes, these myopathies may be isolated, especially during their initial stage. In the absence of clinical information relevant to diabetes, the solitaire occurrence of myopathies may lead to confusion, misinterpretation, and misdiagnosis. The misdiagnosis can cause delay of management and consequent high morbidity.

This book emphasizes the complications of diabetic myopathies and tendinopathies and all their aspects including pathophysiology, pathomechanics, imaging protocols, radiological manifestations, histological characteristics, and surgical management. Diabetes type II and its complications (diabetic myopathies and tendinopathies) have reached a dreadful high incidence worldwide.
