The use of immunohistochemistry in the evaluation of the nail matrix in biopsies of ingrown toenails.

Rom J Morphol Embryol 2013 ;54(2):253-9

Department of Pathology, Hospital El Bierzo, Ponferrada, Spain.

The success of surgical approaches to ingrown toenails depends on the extraction (either partial or total) of the nail matrix. The identification of the nail matrix in specimens taken from ingrown toenails is not always easy because of the fragmentation of the biopsies, difficulties in matrix orientations and the heavy inflammatory infiltrate. In biopsies taken from polydactyly surgeries, the matrix shows a peculiar pattern of expression of the CD10 and CD34 markers that differs from the one shown by the lateral nail fold. Read More

Treatment of severe deformities of the toenails by the modified Zadik method with artificial skin.

Scand J Plast Reconstr Surg Hand Surg 2004 ;38(3):155-9

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Akita Red Cross Hospital, Akita, Japan.

A number of operations have been devised to treat ingrowing toenails and pincer nails, and they have given good aesthetic and functional results. However, there have been few reports of operations for the treatment of severe nail deformities caused by damage to the matrix of the nail by injury, or by inappropriate removal of the nail or intractable onychomycosis or cardiovascular or neurological disorders. In 1950, Zadik reported a radical technique for ingrown nails and pincer nails: after avulsion of the nail, the matrix was excised completely and the posterior nail wall was sutured to the nail bed as an advancement flap.

Matricectomy.

J Dermatol Surg Oncol 1992 Aug;18(8):728-34

Department of Dermatology, University of Iowa, Iowa City.

Removal of the nail matrix is indicated in a variety of recalcitrant conditions in which the growth of the nail plate causes mechanical problems such as recurrent onychocryptosis or pain due to pinching or pressure. Before performing a matricectomy, the physician must consider the use of nonsurgical methods and the possible contraindications to surgery. Once the decision for matricectomy is made, the physician should then utilize the modality with the least morbidity and greatest convenience for the patient. Read More

St. Alban's Veterans Hospital Residency Program, Seaford, New York.

As the so-called "non-surgical" nail procedures grow more and more aggressive and invasive in nature, the cold steel matrixectomy becomes an increasingly viable alternative. Many chemical and thermal matrixectomies are performed under poor aseptic conditions, increasing the risk of wound infection. With chemical matrixectomy, regulation of the level of tissue destruction is uncontrolled and often results in bone injury. Read More
