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...

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...

Background: We developed a prototype of a novel thermochromic liquid crystal (TLC)–coated fabric with an extended temperature range and enhanced sensitivity. By incorporating color and pattern recognition into the fabric, rapid determination of the underlying pedal temperature is facilitated. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of the TLC fabric as a potential diagnostic aid for identifying complications in the high-risk foot. Methods: The hands of 100 individuals were used to compare the mean maximum temperatures indicated by the fabric versus standard thermal camera images...

Tarsal coalitions represent a cohort of conditions characterized by bony, cartilaginous, or fibrous union of two or more tarsal bones. These disorders are often poorly understood by medical professionals, often leading to delays in diagnosis and treatment. They may be asymptomatic or cause hindfoot pain, stiffness, decreased range of motion, and foot deformities. Coalitions can be investigated by an ascending sequence of imaging including radiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. They may be managed conservatively with orthoses, activity modification, physiotherapy, anti-inflammatory medications, or definitive surgical intervention...

BACKGROUND: The first metatarsal bone is a viable source for autologous bone grafting in foot and ankle surgery and may serve as another convenient graft site to correct a flail toe deformity. We aimed to determine how progressive bone removal from the first metatarsal affects the mechanical redistribution of the foot and whether this bone removal increases the risk of fracture. METHODS: A three-dimensional finite element model developed from computed tomographic images obtained from a healthy man were used to evaluate traction stresses on the first metatarsal bone as a function of applied loads on the talus and Achilles tendon at two phases of the gait cycle (and according to the depth of bone removal)...

Simple bone cysts compose approximately 3% of all primary bone tumors and most commonly occur in the metaphyseal regions of the proximal humerus and femur. The percentage of the talus with suspected bone tumors is reported to be 0.003%. Therefore, talar cysts are rare but sometimes present as aggressive lesions, and they can affect any of the tarsal bones. Recently, an arthroscopic approach to these lesions has been developed that is less invasive than conventional open surgery. In the present case study, we profile a 65-year-old female patient who received arthroscopic debridement of a bone cyst from the medial aspect of the talus with the osteochondral autograft transfer system (OATS)...

Dustin Prins, Lisa Fuchs
Extraskeletal chondroma is a benign tumor that is found most often in the fingers but can be found in the feet as well. A symptom of this lesion is pressure from the slow-growing mass. We present the case of a 58-year-old woman who presented with an extraskeletal chondroma in the plantar aspect of the left first metatarsophalangeal joint with concomitant symptomatic arthrosis at the joint. Operative treatment was excision of the lesion in addition to arthrodesis of the joint attributable to the presence of symptomatic arthrosis...
