A Modified Anchor Taping Technique for Distal Onychocryptosis.

Cutis 2021 Sep;108(3):159-160

Drs. Shahwan and Carr are from the Division of Dermatology, Department of Internal Medicine, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus. Dr. Knackstedt is from the Department of Dermatology, MetroHealth Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio.

Onychocryptosis most commonly affects the lateral nail folds and often can be treated with conservative measures, such as anchor taping. Distal onychocryptosis of the fingernail is less common and often is a delayed complication of nail surgery; treatment of this variant has not been as well described in the literature. We present a modified anchor taping method used to treat distal onychocryptosis of the fingernail. Read More

Eur J Hum Genet 2022 02 28;30(2):229-236. Epub 2021 Oct 28.

Department of Molecular Medicine, Aarhus University Hospital, Aarhus, Denmark.

The literature about eye, ear, nose, skin, and nervous system disorders in women with Turner syndrome is equivocal. Impaired vision and hearing in women with Turner syndrome have been described, and case reports of Turner syndrome girls suffering from epilepsy have been published, but no large population-based-studies have explored the occurrence of any of these disorders. We aimed to investigate the risk of admission with disorders related to the eye, ear, nose, skin, and nervous system, compared with background females, and the impact of hormone replacement therapy on these conditions.

J Pediatr Orthop 2021 Oct;41(9):e823-e827

Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Background: In the pediatric population, chronic ingrown toenails (onychocryptosis) can cause infection (paronychia), debilitating pain, and may be unresponsive to conservative treatments. Following multiple failed interventions, a terminal Syme amputation is one option for definitive treatment of chronic onychocryptosis. This procedure involves amputation of the distal aspect of the distal phalanx of the great toe with complete removal of the nail bed and germinal center, preventing further nail growth and recurrence.
