Overview of Metatarsalgia.

Orthopedics 2019 Jan 13;42(1):e138-e143. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Metatarsalgia can be viewed as more of a symptom rather than a distinct diagnosis. Timing of forefoot pain during the gait cycle and evaluation of whether the pain is from anatomic abnormalities, indirect overloading, or iatrogenic causes can suggest a specific metatarsalgia etiology. A thorough physical examination of the lower extremity, especially evaluation of the plantar foot, and weight-bearing radiographs are critical for diagnosis and treatment. Read More

CT and MR Imaging of the Postoperative Ankle and Foot.

Radiographics 2016 Oct;36(6):1828-1848

From the Department of Radiology, Florida Hospital, 601 E Rollins St, Orlando, FL 32803 (G.M.L., K.F.S., D.R.W., C.W.W., C.R.P., L.W.B.); Department of Radiology, University of Washington, Seattle, Wash (M.L.R., J.A.P.); Department of Podiatry, University of Central Florida, Orlando, Fla (G.L.); and Department of Podiatry, Florida Foot and Ankle Specialist, Lake Mary, Fla (C.C.M.).

A variety of surgical procedures exist for repair of both traumatic and degenerative osseous and soft-tissue pathologic conditions involving the foot and ankle. It is necessary for the radiologist to be familiar with these surgical procedures, so as to assess structural integrity, evaluate for complicating features, and avoid diagnostic pitfalls. Adequate interpretation of postoperative changes often requires access to surgical documentation to evaluate not only the surgery itself but the expected timeline for resolution of normal postoperative changes versus progressive disease.

Imaging of Lesser Metatarsophalangeal Joint Plantar Plate Degeneration, Tear, and Repair.

Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 2016 Apr 23;20(2):192-204. Epub 2016 Jun 23.

Benson Radiology, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

Plantar plate degeneration and tear is a common cause of forefoot pain, typically involving the second metatarsophalangeal joint at the proximal phalangeal insertion laterally, frequently confused with the second web space Morton neuroma. The condition has received increased attention with the development of surgical techniques that can result in successful repair of the plantar plate and substantial improvement in patient symptoms. High-resolution MRI or ultrasound can confirm a diagnosis of plantar plate degeneration and tear and exclude other pathologies, particularly Morton neuroma. Read More

Foot Ankle Surg 2016 Jun 21;22(2):139-41. Epub 2016 Jan 21.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Isala Hospital, Zwolle, The Netherlands.

Steroid injection is frequently used in the treatment of interdigital neuroma and has a high rate of success. We report the case of a patient who develops skin depigmentation at the injection site and linear streaks of depigmentation over the foot, the ankle and half way up to the knee after a steroid injection for interdigital neuroma. Minor disadvantages such as subcutaneous fat atrophy and depigmentation of the skin at the injection site are well known problems following steroid injection. Read More
