Morton's interdigital neuroma of the foot: A literature review.

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Apr 4;24(2):92-98. Epub 2017 Feb 4.

Operating Unit of Orthopedics and Traumatology, AUSL of Romagna, Ceccarini Hospital, Riccione 47838, Italy.

Morton's neuroma is one of the most common causes of metatarsalgia. Despite this, it remains little studied, as the diagnosis is clinical with no reliable instrumental diagnostics, and each study may deal with incorrect diagnosis or inappropriate treatment, which are difficult to verify. The present literature review crosses all key points, from diagnosis to surgical and nonoperative treatment, and recurrences. Read More

Priscilla Tu

Am Fam Physician 2018 Jan;97(2):86-93

Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Research Institute, Roanoke, VA, USA.

The differential diagnosis of heel pain is extensive, but a mechanical etiology is the most common. The specific anatomic location of the pain can help guide diagnosis. The most common diagnosis is plantar fasciitis, which leads to medial plantar heel pain, especially with the first weight-bearing steps after rest. Read More

[Magnetic Resonance Imaging Conditions for Imaging of the Tarsal Tunnel].

No Shinkei Geka 2018 Jan;46(1):11-19

Department of Radiology, Chiba Shintoshi Rurban Clinic.

Background: Tarsal tunnel syndrome(TTS)is an entrapment neuropathy of the posterior tibial nerve within the tarsal tunnel below the medial malleolus. An accurate diagnosis is difficult, and TTS is usually diagnosed from clinical symptoms due to the lack of accurate diagnostic tools. We aimed to standardize the diagnosis of TTS using MRI, and report the MRI conditions for clear visualization of the tarsal tunnel. Read More

Rate of Neurologic Injury Following Lateralizing Calcaneal Osteotomy Performed Through a Medial Approach.

Foot Ankle Int 2017 Dec 1;38(12):1367-1373. Epub 2017 Sep 1.

1 Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA.

Background: Calcaneal osteotomies are commonly used to correct varus hindfoot alignment in patients with symptomatic cavovarus deformity. Translational, closing wedge, and Malerba-type osteotomies have been implicated in the development of tarsal tunnel syndrome and neurologic injury to branches of the tibial nerve. The authors hypothesized that there would be minimal clinically important injury to the tibial nerve by performing a translational calcaneal osteotomy from a medial approach. Read More

Recurrent Extra- and Intra-articular Synovial Chondromatosis of the Ankle with Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome: A Rare Case Report.

J Orthop Case Rep 2017 Mar-Apr;7(2):62-65

Department of Orthopaedic, Division of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Alabama 35205, USA.

Introduction: Synovial chondromatosis is a rare, benign monoarticular condition characterized by the metaplastic formation of cartilaginous nodules from the synovium of joints (intra-articular), tendons and bursae (extra-articular). These nodules have the potential to detach and form loose bodies within the joint space. The most common locations are the large joints such as the knees, hips, elbows, and shoulders, with less common locations being the foot and ankle joints. Read More

Department of Geriatrics, Neurosciences and Orthopaedics, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Largo F. Vito 1, 00168, Rome, Italy.

Tarsal tunnel syndrome is an entrapment neuropathy of the posterior tibial nerve or its terminal branches within its fibro-osseous tunnel beneath the flexor retinaculum on the medial side of the ankle. The condition is frequently underdiagnosed leading to controversies regarding its epidemiology and to an intense debate in the literature. With the advent of nerve imaging techniques, the diagnostic confirmation and the etiological identification have become more accurate. Read More
