Surgical Considerations for the Acute and Chronic Charcot Neuroarthropathy of the Foot and Ankle.

Clin Podiatr Med Surg 2022 Apr;39(2):331-341

Division of Podiatric Surgery, LVPG Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, Lehigh Valley Health Network, 250 South Cedar Crest Boulevard, Suite 110, Allentown, PA 18103, USA; Penn State College of Medicine, 500 University Drive, Hershey, PA 17033, USA.

Charcot neuroarthropathy (CN) of the foot/ankle is a devastating complication that can occur in neuropathic patients. It is a progressive and destructive process that is characterized by acute fractures, dislocations, and joint destruction that will lead to foot and/or ankle deformities. Early diagnosis is imperative, and early treatment may be advantageous, but the condition is not reversible. Read More

Fracture of the Bone Inducing Its Necrosis as the End Point in the Evolution of Untreated Neuroarthropathy.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 Dec 22;58(1). Epub 2021 Dec 22.

Diabetology Department, Centre Hopitalier Sud Francilien, 91100 Corbeil-Essonnes, France.

We describe here the case of a female patient with type I diabetes who developed active Charcot neuroarthropathy in the foot. Due to therapeutic noncompliance, talus necrosis was discovered 2 years after the presentation of neuroarthropathy. The impact of untreated neuroarthropathy on the bone is commonly described as fracture and joint dislocation, but we describe the complete disappearance of the bony structure and its necrosis associated with active neuroarthropathy in a patient who refused offloading.

Rotation-hinged knee prosthesis for the treatment of Charcot arthropathy: a case report and literature review.

J Int Med Res 2021 Nov;49(11):3000605211058871

Research Institute of Orthopedics, The Affiliated Jiangnan Hospital of Zhejiang Chinese Medical University, Hangzhou, China.

Charcot arthropathy is a type of destructive osteoarthropathy characterized by neurotrophic and sensory disorders. The condition is relatively rare, with an insidious onset, and it is easily misdiagnosed. Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) can cause excessive joint wear, continuous inflammatory stimulation of the prosthesis, postoperative residual cavity, prosthesis loosening and subsidence, peripheral fracture, infection, and other complications.

Cervical Disorders in Mucopolysaccharidosis IVA-Morquio disease.

World Neurosurg 2021 09 8;153:41-43. Epub 2021 Jul 8.

Complexo Hospital de Clínicas, Universidade Federal do Parana, Curitiba, Brazil.

Morquio disease or mucopolysaccharidosis type IVA (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man No. 253000) is a rare autosomal recessive disease classified in the group of metabolism inborn errors. The glycosaminoglycans accumulate in chondrocytes, which disturbs bone growth and leads to skeletal manifestations, such as skeletal dysplasia and a short stature. Read More

Duration of total contact casting for resolution of acute Charcot foot: a retrospective cohort study.

J Foot Ankle Res 2021 Jun 15;14(1):44. Epub 2021 Jun 15.

Discipline of Podiatry, School of Allied Health, Human Services and Sport, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Victoria, 3086, Australia.

Background: Charcot neuroarthropathy (Charcot foot) is a highly destructive joint disease of the foot and ankle. If there is delayed diagnosis and treatment, it can lead to gross deformity, instability, recurrent ulceration and/or amputation. Total contact casting (TCC) is a treatment commonly used to immobilise the foot and ankle to prevent trauma, further destruction and preserve the foot structure during the inflammatory phase.

MRI-based early diagnosis: a diabetic Charcot spine case report.

BMC Neurol 2021 May 19;21(1):202. Epub 2021 May 19.

Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre, Porto Alegre, Brazil.

Background: Spinal neuroarthropathy (SNA), also known as Charcot spine, is an uncommon aggressive arthropathy, secondary to loss of proprioceptive and nociceptive feedback from the spine. A diagnosis of SNA is frequently delayed due to the scarcity of symptoms in its early stages, leading to significant neurological deterioration. Therefore, prompt suspicion of the disease is critical to providing better outcomes. Read More

Beaming in the Charcot foot: A case series with 12-month minimum follow-up.

Foot (Edinb) 2021 Jun 18;47:101814. Epub 2021 Apr 18.

Department of Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery, 'Gregorio Marañón' University Hospital, Madrid, Spain. Electronic address:

Background: Charcot neuropathic arthropathy is a progressive degeneration of the weightbearing joints of the foot induced by denervation and disturbance of sensorial perception. This entity clinically behaves as a destructive fast-progressive arthropathy, resulting in loss of independent walking and often requiring amputation of the leg. This study analyzes our experience with midfoot realignment arthrodesis and stabilization by intramedullary beaming in patients with Charcot diabetic foot as a limb-sparing procedure. Read More

Are the Sanders-Frykberg and Brodsky-Trepman Classifications Reliable in Diabetic Charcot Neuroarthropathy?

J Foot Ankle Surg 2021 May-Jun;60(3):432-435. Epub 2021 Feb 3.

Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX; Professor, Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX.

The purpose of this study was to assess the intra- and inter-reader reliability of the 2 Charcot neuroarthropathy classifications (Sanders-Frykberg and Brodsky-Trepman), as well as Eichenholtz staging. We hypothesized that the inter-reader reliability, with respect to these 3 classification systems, would be moderate at best. Digital radiographic images were organized in a digital slide presentation without clinical information. Read More

Midfoot Charcot Neuro-arthropathy Precipitated by First or Fifth ray Amputation.

Foot Ankle Surg 2021 Aug 11;27(6):673-676. Epub 2020 Oct 11.

Trauma and Orthopaedics Department, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Herries Rd, Sheffield S5 7AU, UK.

Background: Charcot Neuro-arthropathy (CN) can occur spontaneously in a neuropathic foot but is often precipitated by an insult to the foot, such as trauma. We noted an association between 1st and 5th ray amputations and the development of midfoot CN in our clinics. We therefore set out to analyse our data over a 6-year period to evaluate and improve our practice. Read More

Thecal Transection and Canal Fusion With Structural Allograft for Refractory Charcot Spinal Arthropathy: Technical Note.

Clin Spine Surg 2022 06 3;35(5):204-207. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Orthopaedics, West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV.

Charcot spinal arthropathy presents significant surgical challenges, with large bony defects and limitations in fixation and reconstruction which are exacerbated in often numerous revision surgeries. These challenges make the development of additional salvage techniques useful. We report on a technique of thecal transection and canal fusion with structural allograft as a salvage technique for refractory cases of Charcot spinal arthropathy. Read More

J Foot Ankle Surg 2020 Nov - Dec;59(6):1219-1223. Epub 2020 Jul 18.

Assistant Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX. Electronic address:

Charcot neuroarthropathy is a complication of neuropathy often secondary to diabetes mellitus and most commonly affects the midfoot. In these patients, reconstruction of the foot may be required for limb salvage. A superconstruct technique has previously been described using intramedullary beaming fixation of the midfoot and hindfoot to span the zone of injury. Read More
