#1
Haji Khairul Abd Kadir, Coonoor R Chandrasekar
Plantar fibromatosis is a rare, benign fibroproliferative disorder of the plantar fascia. It is considered as a low-grade tumour and it can be locally aggressive. It can present as painful swelling with impairment of local function. Upon failure of non-operative management, surgical treatment options include total fasciectomy or partial fasciectomy. Although surgical excision is the mainstay of treatment, recurrence rate can be up to 60%. The aim of this study was to determine the recurrence and complication rates of surgically treated plantar fibromatosis...

BACKGROUND: Although the clinical assessment of ankle dorsiflexion has traditionally been measured utilising various goniometric means, the validity of this static examination has never been investigated. Since any impairment in ankle flexibility is likely to result in injuries, it is imperative that the correct examination technique is conducted. HYPOTHESIS/PURPOSE: To determine whether a clinical diagnosis of ankle equinus, or limited ankle dorsiflexion, correlates with a decreased dorsiflexion range of movement of the foot and ankle during gait...

Anthony John Maher
INTRODUCTION: End stage hallux rigidus can be treated surgically by arthrodesis, excisional arthroplasty and implant arthroplasty. Evaluation of these techniques has focused on clinical indicators such as radiographic, complications and subjective examination. Little attention has been given to health related quality of life and the use of patient reported outcome measures is still infrequent. METHOD: An evaluation was undertaken in a community based podiatric surgery service...

Kaissar Yammine, Chahine Assi
PURPOSE: Achilles injuries are very common, mainly among young athletes. When indicated, the surgical treatment aims for strong repairs that can resist distraction and consequently ruptures. The majority of the published clinical meta-analyses reported comparisons between broad treatment modalities such as conservative treatment, open, and minimally invasive surgery. METHODS: A meta-analysis has been conducted to assess further clinical and biomechanical variables on human cadavers related to the efficacy of Achilles repair...

Rachel Lucas, Mark Cornwall
The absence of a functioning windlass mechanism may delay re-supination of the foot during locomotion and put excess stress on the mid-tarsal joint and soft tissues of the foot. The purpose of this study was to describe the foot posture of individuals that have an impaired or absent windlass mechanism. Forty-seven individuals (34 females and 13 males) with a mean age of 26 years were recruited to participate in this study. The Foot Posture Index was used to visually assess the posture of both feet. In addition, a digital gauge was used to measure dorsal arch height and midfoot width in bilateral resting standing...

BACKGROUND: As hallux valgus (HV) progresses, the first metatarsal drifts medially and the subsequent lateral drift of the sesamoids results in intersesamoidal crista erosion. This study aimed to provide a novel method of assessing crista erosion and determine if there is a relationship between that erosion and an increase in the distal metatarsal articular angle (DMAA). METHODS: The DMAA and size of the intersesamoidal crista was measured on the first metatarsals of 120 adult modern human individuals...

INTRODUCTION: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is one of a number of inflammatory arthropathies resulting in foot pain and deformity. Patients with this disease may require surgical intervention as part of their management. Many of these patients are now taking biologic agents which pose several risks to patients in the perioperative phase. The surgical team therefore need to be aware of these associated complications and how to manage these cases. AIM: This paper aims to review the current literature about perioperative needs (foot and ankle surgery) associated with patients with rheumatoid arthritis receiving biologic therapy...

A 50-year-old lady presented with a right foot mass and pain for 1year. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a 3.9×3.2×5cm mass on plantar side of the forefoot deep to the major flexor tendons and plantar aponeurosis and inferior to 1st-4th metatarsals. The mass extended dorsally through the intermetatarsal space to the foot dorsum. Ultrasound guided biopsy was performed, which confirmed it was a fibroma. This case was further complicated by pathological fracture of the 3rd metatarsal. It was resected through a dorsal incision and surgical dislocation of the 2nd and 3rd tarsometatarsal joints...

Black bone disease has been recognised as a potential consequence of long-term treatment with tetracycline antibiotics. Largely documented affecting structures in the head and skull, there are few reported cases of black bone disease in the foot and ankle. The case of a 55 years old patient, who as a teenager, had undergone treatment with minocycline hydrochloride for chronic acne, and was found to have bone discolouration consistent with minocycline induced black bone disease (MIBBD) during the course of hallux valgus corrective surgery some 40 years later, is presented...

Endothelial and platelet dysfunction increase the atherothrombotic risk in diabetes mellitus patients. Therefore, arterial ischaemia of lower limbs is an important complication in diabetes mellitus. In the present work, type 2 diabetic patients were classified by a podiatrist into presence or absence of arterial ischaemia of lower limbs. Several polymorphisms in platelet glycoproteins and eNOS genes were evaluated. Our results suggest that the -5CC genotype in Kozak sequence of GPIbα may be associated with a higher risk of developing arterial ischaemia of lower limbs in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients...

In Charcot's osteoarthropathy stabilization of the medial column of the foot was introduced in order to establish a stable foot and reduce the risk for amputation. This study was performed to analyze postoperative complications, define risk factors for those and develop strategies for prevention. Since bolt dislocation takes place frequently, it was aimed to predict an appropriate time point for bolt removal under the condition that osseous healing has occurred. Fourteen consecutive patients with neuroosteoarthropathy of the foot and arch collapse were treated with open reduction and stabilization using midfoot fusion bolt and lateral lag screws...

BACKGROUND: In pedobarography, clinically meaningful comparison of measurements within or between subjects is limited by data variability and measurement error. This study aims to determine the components of the minimal detectable change (MDC) in impulse across all foot regions and the reliability of these measures. METHODS: A convenience sample of foot pressures from 108 visits by normal, healthy subjects aged 2-17 years was studied. Each subject had three pedobarograph measurements taken per foot, with six subjects returning for a second visit for assessment of day-to-day variability...
