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.

An operative approach to address severe genu valgum deformity in the Ellis-van Creveld syndrome.

J Child Orthop 2014 Feb 25;8(1):61-9. Epub 2014 Jan 25.

Department of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery, Regional Skeletal Dysplasia Clinic, Akron Children's Hospital, Northeast Ohio Medical University, 300 Locust Street, Ste. 160, Akron, OH, 44302-1821, USA,

Background: The genu valgum deformity seen in the Ellis-van Creveld syndrome is one of the most severe angular deformities seen in any orthopaedic condition. It is likely a combination of a primary genetic-based dysplasia of the lateral portion of the tibial plateau combined with severe soft-tissue contractures that tether the tibia into valgus deformations. Progressive weight-bearing induces changes, accumulating with growth, acting on the initially distorted and valgus-angulated proximal tibia, worsening the deformity with skeletal maturation.

Can loss of muscle spindle afferents explain the ataxic gait in Riley-Day syndrome?

Brain 2011 Nov;134(Pt 11):3198-208

School of Medicine, University of Western Sydney, Penrith, Sydney, NSW 2751, Australia.

The Riley-Day syndrome is the most common of the hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathies (Type III). Among the well-recognized clinical features are reduced pain and temperature sensation, absent deep tendon reflexes and a progressively ataxic gait. To explain the latter we tested the hypothesis that muscle spindles, or their afferents, are absent in hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy III by attempting to record from muscle spindle afferents from a nerve supplying the leg in 10 patients.

Persistent ankle pain following a sprain: a review of imaging.

Emerg Radiol 2011 Jun 5;18(3):211-25. Epub 2011 Mar 5.

Department of Radiology, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, UK.

The initial diagnosis of an "ankle sprain" is not always correct. Prolonged pain, swelling and disability sufficient to limit the activity and refractory to treatment following an ankle injury are not typical of an ankle sprain and should alert the clinician of the possibility of an alternative or an associated diagnosis. There are several conditions that can be misdiagnosed as an ankle sprain and those include ankle syndesmosis injuries, sinus tarsi syndrome, ankle and hind foot fractures, osteochondral lesions, posterior tibialis and peroneal tendons abnormalities, spring ligament damage, impingement syndromes and reflex sympathetic dystrophy.

Extra-articular Mimickers of Lateral Meniscal Tears.

Sports Health 2011 Jan;3(1):82-8

Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois.

Context: Lateral meniscus tears are a common entity seen in sports medicine. Although lateral-side knee pain is often the result of a meniscus injury, several extra-articular pathologies share signs and symptoms with a meniscus tear. It is critical for the clinician to be able to identify and understand extra-articular pathologies that can present similar to a lateral meniscus tear. Read More

Review of common and unusual causes of lateral ankle pain.

Skeletal Radiol 2011 Nov 24;40(11):1399-413. Epub 2010 Oct 24.

Musculoskeletal Radiology, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre NHS Trust, Oxford, UK.

Lateral ankle pain is a common clinical presentation having several important causes, including lateral ligament injury, peroneal tendon injury, sinus tarsi syndrome, and nerve entrapments. However, other causes should be kept in mind in patients with unusual patterns of pain or intractable symptoms. We present a review of common and some unusual causes of lateral ankle pain including a review of post-operative imaging findings following surgery for lateral ankle ligament and peroneal tendon injuries.

[Knee dislocation--a simple diagnosis? Compartment syndrome with occlusion of the popliteal artery and lesion of the peroneal nerve after inadequate trauma].

Unfallchirurg 2011 Jan;114(1):66-9

Abteilung für Unfallchirurgie und Orthopädie, Bundeswehrkrankenhaus Berlin, Scharnhorststrasse 13, Berlin, Germany.

Knee dislocations are rare and often associated with damage to the surrounding structures. We present a case where a soldier sustained a complex knee dislocation during routine training. This trauma was associated with a compartment syndrome, occlusion of the popliteal artery, lesion of the peroneal nerve and multiple lesions of ligaments and tendons of the knee. Read More

Endoscopic treatment of calcaneo-fibular impingement.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2011 Jan 21;19(1):131-6. Epub 2010 Apr 21.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Ambroise Paré Hospital, West Paris University, 9, avenue Charles de Gaulle, 92100 Boulogne, France.

The calcaneo-fibular impingement syndrome is frequent after calcaneal fracture and is linked to the decreased space between the tip of the fibula and the lateral wall of the calcaneus. The reasons for the painful symptoms are mixed with both bony and soft tissue involvement. The abnormal bony contact between the lateral calcaneal cortex and the tip of the fibula depends mainly on the size and localization of the lateral exostosis of the calcaneal wall. Read More

Protective mechanisms of the common fibular nerve in and around the fibular tunnel: a new concept.

Clin Anat 2009 Sep;22(6):738-46

Centers for Surgical Anatomy and Technique, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia 30322, USA.

The most frequent site at which the common fibular nerve is affected by compression, trauma, traction, masses, and surgery is within and around the fibular tunnel. The aim of this study was to determine whether there were protective mechanisms at this site that guard against compression of the nerve. Twenty-six lower limbs of 13 preserved adult cadavers (11 males and two females) were used. Read More

[Reconstructive surgery of sequelae of compartment syndrome of the lower leg and/or foot. Presentation of a new classification].

Authors:

Unfallchirurg 2008 Oct;111(10):776-82, 784

Klinik und Poliklinik für Unfall- und Wiederherstellungschirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Dresden, Dresden, Deutschland.

The sequelae of an undiagnosed insufficiently treated or unpreventable (by crush injury) compartment or postischemic syndrome, most often after lower leg fracture or popliteal artery injury, are caused by necrosis and contracture of the extrinsic foot muscles. Therefore claw toes, pes equinus or other forms, such as a severe pes equino varus related to the compartment involved will decide the kind of foot deformity. In cases of a combined compartment syndrome of the lower leg and foot, not only the extrinsic but also the intrinsic muscles especially the short flexors are involved, leading to extensive claw toeing of the hallux and the lesser toes as well.

Os peroneum friction syndrome complicated by sesamoid fatigue fracture: a new radiological diagnosis? Case report and literature review.

Skeletal Radiol 2009 Feb 23;38(2):181-6. Epub 2008 Sep 23.

Department of Radiology, The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, Stanmore, London, Middlesex, HA7 4LP, UK.

Injuries to the peroneal tendons are relatively common worldwide but tendon rupture without significant trauma is uncommon. Ankle mechanics can be seriously affected by disruption of one or both of the peroneal tendons although complete rupture can also remain asymptomatic. Accessory ossicles are sesamoid bones and are common findings in routine radiology of the foot and ankle. Read More
