Nerve decompression according to A.L. Dellon in Morton's neuroma - A retrospective analysis.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2020 Jun 22;73(6):1099-1104. Epub 2020 Jan 22.

Department of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, Klinikum Klagenfurt am Wörthersee, Klagenfurt, Austria. Electronic address:

Background: First reported by Dellon et al. in 1992, nerve decompression by dissecting the deep transversal intermetatarsal ligament through a dorsal incision appears to be a reliable method for treating Morton's neuroma by addressing its underlying pathomechanism, since it should rather be considered as Morton's entrapment. As there are no current studies dealing with Dellon's surgical technique, we carried out a retrospective analysis with the aim of showing that nerve decompression is an effective method to treat Morton's neuroma, and one that considers its true pathology.

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.
