The Essential Charcot Neuroarthropathy: Biomechanics, Pathophysiology, and MRI Findings provides a comprehensive analysis of Charcot neuroarthropathy (or Charcot Foot) in diabetic patients. All aspects are covered, including epidemiology, biomechanics, pathophysiology, socioeconomic impacts, radiological findings, and differential diagnosis, with an emphasis on MRI. Chapters address the challenges of pre-and-post surgical management of Charcot neuroarthropathy and the role of unconventional imaging modalities in diagnosis. The book presents an analysis of the normal biomechanics of the ankle and foot, the biomechanical derangements of the ankle-foot unit (including abnormal gait) caused by diabetes Type II, and more.

Finally, there is also a reference of the pathophysiology of diabetes-induced peripheral neuropathy and its direct link with the development of Charcot neuroarthropathy foot. Diabetes-induced Charcot foot is frequently misunderstood, misinterpreted and misdiagnosed which can lead to confusion and detrimental management with reported high morbidity.
