BACKGROUND: Comparison of dynamic stiffness of foot joints was previously proposed to investigate pathological situations with changes in the properties of muscle and passive structures. Samples must be controlled to reduce the variability within groups being compared, which may arise from different sources, such as gait speed or foot posture index (FPI). METHODS: In this work, variability in the measurement of the dynamic stiffness of ankle, midtarsal and metatarsophalangeal joints was studied in a controlled sample of healthy adult male subjects with normal FPI, and the effect of gait speed was analyzed...

Ingrown toenail, or onychocryptosis, is a common inflammatory disease of the hallux. It results from the alteration of fit of the nail plate in the lateral nail fold. They are usually seen in adolescents and young adults and can affect daily activities and social life. Generally, ingrown toenails are classified into three stages, including inflammatory stage, abscess stage and granulation stage. Here we have presented the rare case of a male with a diagnosis of paronychia with sporangium formation causing an ingrown toenail...

Marc D Jones, Kerry J Sweet
Background - Our aim of this study was to compare the long term outcomes of three different surgical procedures for the treatment of hallux rigidus (cheilectomy, decompressional osteotomy and arthrodesis) between active duty military and non-active duty patients. Methods - A retrospective review of 80 patients (95 feet) undergoing surgical treatment for hallux rigidus was performed. Telephonic survey was used to obtain postoperative outcome measures and subjective satisfaction. Additional data recorded and analyzed included age, sex, status of patient active duty or non-active duty, grade of hallux rigidus, surgical procedure performed, date of surgery, time to return to full activity, ability to return to full duty, and follow up time post-operatively...

Can Xu, Mingqing Li, Chenggong Wang, Hua Liu
BACKGROUND: Capsulorrhaphy restricts the motion of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (1st MTPJ) in hallux valgus surgery. However, changes in motion of the first MTPJ immediately after surgery that resulted from different capsulorrhaphy methods have not been compared. The primary aim of this study was to compare the immediate effect of Y-shaped and inverted L capsulorrhaphy methods on the range of motion (ROM) of the 1st MTPJ. METHODS: Y-shaped and inverted L capsulorrhaphies were performed on sixteen human cadaveric feet...

BACKGROUND: Research on the relationship between foot problems and frailty is sparse and could be elucidated via advances in wearable sensor-based measures of gait, balance, and physical activity (PA). This study examined the impact of foot problems on likelihood of falls, frailty syndrome, motor performance, and PA in community-dwelling older adults. METHODS: Arizona Frailty Cohort Study participants (community-dwelling adults 65 years and older without baseline cognitive deficit, severe movement disorders, or recent stroke) underwent Fried frailty and foot assessment...

We present a rare case of calcaneal chondroblastoma with subsequent surgical revision after graft rejection in a 13-year-old boy. Complications were encountered after the injectable bone graft filler was placed in the calcaneus after curettage. With noted subsequent sinus tract formation, revision surgery was performed that involved dissection of the sinus tract, removal of bone void filler, and application of demineralized bone matrix sponge human allograft soaked in vancomycin-impregnated saline. Sixteen weeks after the revision surgical intervention, the patient resumed normal athletic activities without pain or restrictions...

BACKGROUND: One relatively universal functional goal after major lower-limb amputation is ambulation in a prosthesis. This retrospective, observational investigation sought to 1) determine what percentage of patients successfully walked in a prosthesis within 1 year after major limb amputation and 2) assess which patient factors might be associated with ambulation at an urban US tertiary-care hospital. METHODS: A retrospective medical record review was performed to identify consecutive patients undergoing major lower-limb amputation...

BACKGROUND: Onychomycosis is one of the most common diseases of the toenails. The costs of diagnosis and treatment are substantial, and as the population ages, the overall cost burden will continue to escalate. The purpose of this study was to correlate dermoscopic features with pathologic diagnosis to support the accuracy of point-of-care diagnosis by dermoscopic examination. METHODS: Nail unit pathology reports of 52 patients with abnormal great toenails were compared with the dermoscopic features detected by nail unit dermoscopy...

Rebecca M Porter, Albert A Bravo, Frances J D Smith
Plantar keratodermas can arise due to a variety of genetically inherited mutations. The need to distinguish between different plantar keratoderma disorders is becoming increasingly apparent because there is evidence that they do not respond identically to treatment. Diagnosis can be aided by observation of other clinical manifestations, such as palmar keratoderma, more widespread hyperkeratosis of the epidermis, hair and nail dystrophies, or erythroderma. However, there are frequent cases of plantar keratoderma that occur in isolation...

Behcet's disease is a rare autoimmune systemic vasculitis. It usually presents with a symptom complex involving primarily mucocutaneous lesions, genital lesions, and uveitis. When it involves the lower extremity, venous and arterial disease predominates, and joint involvement occurs in approximately 50% of patients. We present a patient with Behcet's disease who was initially referred to us for chronic toenail pathology.

Lymphangioma-like Kaposi's sarcoma (LLKS) is a rare histologic variant of KS. Kaposi's sarcoma is also known as human herpesvirus type 8. The clinical presentation of the LLKS lesion is highly unusual and similar to that of classic KS but with multinodular vascular tumors and lymphedema. We present a 63-year-old native Haitian man with multiple slowly progressive exophytic ulcerated lesions covering more than 60% of his left lower extremity with no systemic involvement. Much confusion surrounded the clinical presentation of these wounds, and we postulated several differential diagnoses...

BACKGROUND: There is an increased prevalence of foot ulceration in patients with diabetes, leading to hospitalization. Early wound closure is necessary to prevent further infections and, ultimately, lower-limb amputations. There is no current evidence stating that an elevated preoperative hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level is a contraindication to skin grafting. The purpose of this review was to determine whether elevated HbA1c levels are a contraindication to the application of skin grafts in diabetic patients...

Dong-Il Chun, Jun-Hyuck Lee, Jaeho Cho
Closed rupture of the extensor hallucis longus (EHL) tendon is rare, with most cases caused by either direct penetrating trauma or predisposing factors such as corticosteroid injection and iatrogenic trauma incidences. Almost all of the previous case reports have reported on rupture of the EHL tendon rather than the EHL muscle. In this report, we highlight an unusual clinical presentation of a rupture of the EHL muscle and discuss its predisposing factors. This patient was a taekwondo athlete with EHL muscle rupture secondary to repetitive overuse without any underlying systemic or local predisposing factors or direct trauma...
