Foot & Ankle International (FAI), in publication since 1980, is the official journal of the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS). This monthly medical journal emphasizes surgical and medical management as it relates to the foot and ankle with a specific focus on reconstructive, trauma, and sports-related conditions utilizing the latest technological advances. FAI offers original, clinically oriented, peer-reviewed research articles presenting new approaches to foot and ankle pathology and treatment, current case reviews, and technique tips addressing the management of complex problems. This journal is an ideal resource for highly-trained orthopaedic foot and ankle specialists and allied health care providers.

The journal’s Founding Editor, Melvin H. Jahss, MD (deceased), served from 1980-1988. He was followed by Kenneth A. Johnson, MD (deceased) from 1988-1993; Lowell D. Lutter, MD (deceased) from 1993-2004; and E. Greer Richardson, MD from 2005-2007. David B. Thordarson, MD, assumed the role of Editor-in-Chief in 2008.

The journal focuses on the following areas of interest:

• Surgery

• Wound care

• Bone healing

• Pain management

• In-office orthotic systems

• Diabetes

• Sports medicine

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

    Foot & Ankle International (FAI) welcomes articles that contribute to orthopaedic science as it relates to the foot and ankle. Articles are welcome from all countries and all sources under the following conditions:

    • Articles are accepted only for exclusive publication in Foot & Ankle International.
    • Publication does NOT constitute official endorsement of opinions presented in articles.
    • Published articles and illustrations become the property of Foot & Ankle International.
    • Manuscripts not prepared according to the instructions below WILL be returned pending compliance.
    • Basic Science Models: All basic science models should represent clinically relevant and realistic situations. In general, there are three legitimate uses of surrogate bone models in clinically oriented foot and ankle biomechanical research studies: 
    1. Working out technical details of the testing model before switching to cadaver specimens. 
    2. Evaluating intrinsic mechanical properties of an implant or device exclusive of its method of attachment to bone. For example, quantifying the bending fatigue resistance of the plate that is contoured for attachment to a specific bone and for which attachment of simple bars or cylindrical rods for testing would result in inaccurate test results.
    3. Geometrical studies designed to demonstrate the amount of correction, angulation, etc., resulting from different surgical procedures.

    In addition, other biomechanical studies have been published periodically that have inaccurate models. One area that has had numerous publications over the last few years has been that of Achilles tendon rupture using an Achilles transection model which is very different from a clinical rupture with significant shredding of tissue at the rupture site. These types of studies should try to simulate an Achilles tendon rupture more accurately (i.e., some degree of shredding at the damaged tendon site).
