Identifying and Monitoring Deficiencies in Physical Examination of the Foot and Ankle with Diagnostic Ultrasound: Experience from a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Training Program.

Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2020 Mar 18. Epub 2020 Mar 18.

Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark, NJ Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, White Plains, NY, Arthur S. Abramson Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Health System1 Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, School of Medicine, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia, USA and University of Hawaii School of Medicine, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, VA New Jersey Health Care System, East Orange, NJ.

Despite the high incidence of foot and ankle injuries and their biomechanical importance to more proximal joints, the foot and ankle are some of the most daunting and underemphasized musculoskeletal structures in medical training. This study used musculoskeletal ultrasound to identify a knowledge gap in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) residents in foot and ankle surface anatomy palpation and to determine if senior residents had higher examination performance compared to more junior residents. PM&R residents at different levels of training were tested cross-sectionally and palpation accuracy was compared by class year. Read More

Fluid around the distal tibialis posterior tendon on ankle MRI: prevalence and clinical relevance.

Br J Radiol 2019 Dec 17;92(1104):20190722. Epub 2019 Oct 17.

Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, Stanmore, UK.

Objective: It has been stated that the distal 1-2 cm of the tibialis posterior tendon (TPT) does not have a tendon sheath but rather a paratenon, and that any fluid seen around this segment on ankle MRI is considered to represent paratendonitis. The prevalence and clinical significance of isolated TPT paratendonitis diagnosed on ankle MRI is unknown. This study aims to correlate the presence of isolated distal segment TPT paratendonitis on ankle MRI, with the presence or absence of medial midfoot pain. Read More

T2* mapping and subregion analysis of the tibialis posterior tendon using 3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging.

Br J Radiol 2019 Dec 11;92(1104):20190221. Epub 2019 Oct 11.

Steadman Philippon Research Institute, 181 West Meadow Drive, Suite 1000 Vail, Colorado 81657, United States.

Objective: Early detection of tibialis posterior tendon changes and appropriate intervention is necessary to prevent disease progression to flat-foot deformity and foot/ankle dysfunction, and the need for operative treatment. Currently, differentiating between early-stage tibialis posterior tendon deficiency patients who will benefit from conservative more aggressive treatment is challenging. The objective of this work was to establish a quantitative MRI T2* mapping method and subregion baseline values in the tibialis posterior tendon in asymptomatic ankles for future clinical application in detecting tendon degeneration.

Partial Rupture of the Tibialis Posterior Tendon Associated with a Closed Medial Malleolar Fracture.

Authors:
Jin Park

J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 2016 Nov;106(6):449-452

Rupture of the tibialis posterior tendon associated with ankle fracture is rare and difficult to diagnose. This rupture can be easily overlooked because the clinical examination is limited owing to acute pain related to a closed ankle fracture. Complete rupture of the tibialis posterior tendon can be identified by a loss of tension during ankle fracture fixation, but partial rupture is more difficult to detect because the tibialis posterior tendon can maintain its tension.

Acute Tibialis Posterior Tendon Rupture With Pronation-Type Ankle Fractures.

Orthopedics 2016 Sep 1;39(5):e970-5. Epub 2016 Jun 1.

Tibialis posterior tendon rupture in the setting of pronation-type ankle fractures can lead to long-term debility as a result of chronic tendon dysfunction. This rare injury pattern presents a diagnostic challenge because thorough preoperative examination of the function of the tendon is limited by pain, swelling, and inherent instability of the fracture. As such, a high index of suspicion is necessary in ankle fractures with radiographs showing a medial malleolus fracture with an associated suprasyndesmotic fibula fracture. Read More

How does a cadaver model work for testing ultrasound diagnostic capability for rheumatic-like tendon damage?

Rheumatol Int 2016 Jun 19;36(6):863-9. Epub 2016 Mar 19.

Department of Rheumatology, Faculty of Medicine, Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Marañón, Universidad Complutense, Doctor Esquerdo 46, 28007, Madrid, Spain.

To establish whether a cadaver model can serve as an effective surrogate for the detection of tendon damage characteristic of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In addition, we evaluated intraobserver and interobserver agreement in the grading of RA-like tendon tears shown by US, as well as the concordance between the US findings and the surgically induced lesions in the cadaver model. RA-like tendon damage was surgically induced in the tibialis anterior tendon (TAT) and tibialis posterior tendon (TPT) of ten ankle/foot fresh-frozen cadaveric specimens. Read More

Tibialis Posterior Tendon Entrapment Within Posterior Malleolar Fracture Fragment.

Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ) 2016 Mar-Apr;45(3):E103-7

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, RI.

Management of posterior malleolus fractures continues to be controversial, with respect to both need for fixation and fixation methods. Fixation methods include an open posterior approach to the ankle as well as percutaneous reduction and fixation with or without arthroscopy for visualization of the articular surface. Plain radiographs are unreliable in identifying fracture pattern and intraoperative reduction, making arthroscopy a valuable adjunct to posterior malleolus fracture management. Read More

Diagnostic Characteristics of Standard Radiographs and Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Ruptures of the Tibialis Posterior Tendon.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2016 May-Jun;55(3):542-6. Epub 2016 Feb 9.

Professor, Department of Orthopaedics, Graduate School of Medical Science, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.

The present study aimed to diagnose complete rupture (CR) and longitudinal rupture (LR) of the posterior tibial tendon (PTT) from the magnetic resonance imaging findings in patients with PTT dysfunction and to analyze and compare the radiographs from each group to identify radiographic indicators related to the progression of PTT injury that would allow the radiographic diagnosis of CR. We evaluated 32 feet in 27 patients with PTT dysfunction (mean age 66.5, range 49 to 82, years). Read More

Muscular tendinous junction rupture of the posterior tibial tendon after closed bimalleolar ankle fracture.

BMJ Case Rep 2016 Feb 3;2016. Epub 2016 Feb 3.

ABC Medical Center, Mexico, Mexico.

In this case report, we present an acute rupture in the muscular tendinous junction of a posterior tibialis muscle in a bimalleolar closed ankle fracture after a high-energy trauma in a 30-year-old patient with no significant medical history. Fracture was confirmed by simple X-rays, and was treated with an open reduction in which both of the fractures were treated with osteosynthesis material and reparation of the syndesmosis. If left untreated, this uncommon finding can result in a bad postsurgical outcome; we believe this injury is more common but under-reported in the literature. Read More

Orthotic Heel Wedges Do Not Alter Hindfoot Kinematics and Achilles Tendon Force During Level and Inclined Walking in Healthy Individuals.

J Appl Biomech 2016 Apr 21;32(2):160-70. Epub 2015 Oct 21.

Department of Surgery and Cancer and the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, London, U.K.

Conservative treatments such as in-shoe orthotic heel wedges to treat musculoskeletal injuries are not new. However, weak evidence supporting their use in the management of Achilles tendonitis suggests the mechanism by which these heel wedges works remains poorly understood. It was the aim of this study to test the underlying hypothesis that heel wedges can reduce Achilles tendon load. Read More

Dislocated Posterior Tibial Tendon Treated With Plate Buttress Fixation in a Collegiate Gymnast: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Foot Ankle Spec 2016 Aug 7;9(4):361-6. Epub 2015 Oct 7.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of South Alabama, Mobile, Alabama (JM)Andrews Research and Education Institute, Foot and Ankle Center, Gulf Breeze, Florida (WW, EN, CK).

Unlabelled: Dislocation of the posterior tibial tendon (PTT) is a rare pathological process that occurs most often as a result of acute trauma. The injury involves forced dorsiflexion and eversion of the foot against a contracted posterior tibialis. Diagnosis of the injury is often difficult secondary to the rarity of the injury and its similarity with other benign injuries of the medial ankle. Read More

Anatomic Reconstruction Technique for a Plantar Calcaneonavicular (Spring) Ligament Tear.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2015 Nov-Dec;54(6):1124-6. Epub 2015 Aug 5.

Orthopedics Department, Meir Medical Center, Kfar-Saba, Israel, associated with the Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Acquired flatfoot deformity in adults is usually due to partial or complete tearing of the posterior tibial tendon, with secondary failure of other structures such as the plantar calcaneonavicular (spring) ligament (SL), which maintain the medial longitudinal arch. In flexible cases, the tibialis posterior can be replaced with the flexor digitorum longus. It is common practice to suture the SL directly in the case of a tear; however, if the tear is complete, suturing directly to the ligament alone will not be possible. Read More

Closed Medial Malleolar Multifragment Fracture With a Posterior Tibialis Tendon Rupture: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2016 Jul-Aug;55(4):832-7. Epub 2015 May 12.

Ortopaedic and Traumatology Unit, IRCCS S. Martino IST, Genoa, Italy.

Ankle fractures represent an exciting field of traumatology because of the wide variety of clinical presentations, injury mechanisms, and treatment options. Rupture of the posterior tibialis tendon (PTT) with ankle fracture can occur during trauma that involves pronation and external rotation of the foot or, less commonly, secondary to direct trauma to the ankle. This tendon injury is uncommon and probably misdiagnosed in many cases, because of the difficult clinical examination secondary to the pain and swelling. Read More

Irreducible ankle fracture-dislocation due to tibialis anterior subluxation: a case report.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2015 Mar-Apr;54(2):268-72. Epub 2015 Jan 21.

Associate Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL. Electronic address:

Irreducible ankle fracture-dislocations are rare. Several cases of irreducible ankle fracture-dislocation have been reported in published studies secondary to the tibialis posterior tendon, deltoid ligament, or extensor digitorum longus tendon blocking the reduction. We report a case of irreducible ankle fracture-dislocation resulting from posteromedial subluxation of the tibialis anterior tendon around a medial malleolar fracture fragment. Read More
