Jun-Beom Kim, In-Soo Song, Sang-Yeop Shin, Ja-Yeong Yoon
Synovial chondromatosis developes by metaplasia of the synovial cells in the synovium of joints, and is a benign synovial tumor with multiple cartilaginous nodules. It is most commonly found in single and large joints, such as the knee, hip, and shoulder. Occurrence in the foot and ankle is uncommon, although there have been previous reports in the orthopedic and radiological literature of primary synovial chondromatosis in the subtalr, calcaneocuboid, naviculocuneiform, and metatarsaophalangeal joints. To our knowledge, occurrence in the talonavicular joint is even rarer, with only one report in the literature to date...

We report two cases of acute fractures of the os trigonum. The os trigonum fracture related to the first case was sustained following a hyper-plantar flexion injury during a game of soccer. The second case involved a patient who fell from height and also sustained open fractures of the left distal tibia and lateral malleolus as well as the right calcaneus. In both cases, a preliminary diagnosis of a posterior talar process fracture was made from the initial radiographs of the ankle. The correct diagnosis of an os trigonum fracture rather than a fracture of the posterior talar process was only made following further assessment with CT imaging...

BACKGROUND: The goal of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical performance of three distal fibula fracture fixation implants in a matched pair cadaveric fibula model: (1) a 5-hole compression plate with lag screw, (2) a 5-hole locking plate with lag screw, and (3) the 6-hole tabbed-plate with locking screws. METHODS: Three-dimensional motions between the proximal and distal fibular segments were measured under cyclic valgus bending, cyclic compressive axial loading, and cyclic torsional external-rotation loading...

BACKGROUND: Assessment of ankle joint movement in a weight bearing position has important clinical implications. The lunge ankle dorsiflexion measurement device (LAD) has been developed with the aim of facilitating ease of and standardisation of the measurement of ankle joint movement. The literature lacks studies evaluating the reliability of weight bearing measurements of the ankle joint in study groups with ankle disabilities. The objective of this study was to examine the intra- and inter-tester reliability of ankle dorsiflexion measured with the novel LAD in patients following a fracture of the ankle...

BACKGROUND: Radiofrequency microtenotomy (RM) is effective for treating plantar fasciitis. No studies have compared it to the plantar fasciotomy (PF). We hypothesized that RM is equally effective and provides no additional benefit when performed with PF. METHODS: Between 2007 and 2014, all patients who underwent either or both procedures concurrently at our institution were analyzed. Data collected included demographics, SF-36 Health Survey, AOFAS Ankle-Hindfoot Scale, and two questions regarding satisfaction and expectations, all of which were assessed pre-operatively and post-operatively at 6-months and 1-year...

BACKGROUND: Debate exists regarding the effect of triple fusion on the development of osteoarthritis (OA) of the ankle joint. The midterm outcome after triple arthrodesis and the prevalence of OA following triple arthrodesis are reported in this study. The role of alignment in the development of OA was investigated. METHODS: Seventy five patients (87 feet) were evaluated in 2003 and of these, 48 patients (55 feet) were available for second evaluation in 2008. X-rays of the ankles and feet were made prior to surgery, in 2003 and in 2008, and the level of osteoarthritis (OA) was graded with the Kellgren and Lawrence score...

BACKGROUND: Different surgical techniques are available to correct each type of Hallux Valgus (HV) deformity, and all present similar good results. No information is available relative to the cost of each technique compared to their individual success. OBJECTIVE: To determine the cost-effectiveness-ratio (CER) of five different techniques for HV. METHODS: We included 245HV surgeries performed in 179 patients. The severity was defined according to radiological parameters...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures is continually being debated. The success of non-surgical regimes is now evident yet there remains a high rate of surgery in the United States of America and Scandinavia. Recent studies have investigated functional outcome rather than complication rates as primary outcome but the current data are still sparse. We aimed to investigate whether there is any difference in functional outcomes between two dynamic regimes of differing durations for acute Achilles tendon ruptures...

INTRODUCTION: Currently there is no consensus regarding the use of bilateral simultaneous percutaneous surgery for Hallux valgus treatment. Although the technique described in M. Prado's book, recommends operating only one foot at a time there are no published studies confirming it. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether there is a difference between the results of patients that have been percutaneously operated on one foot and those operated on both feet at the same surgical time for mild to moderate Hallux valgus correction...

BACKGROUND: A cadaveric and clinical study was performed to assess whether a minimally invasive technique is a potentially safer alternative compared to a calcaneal osteotomy through an open lateral approach. METHODS: Cadaveric: A minimally invasive calcaneal osteotomy (MICO) was performed on nine cadaveric specimens. These were examined to identify any nerve injury and to quantify the displacement achieved with the osteotomy. Clinical: A retrospective review of a sequential case series of medializing MICO's performed by the senior author between October 2011 and November 2014 was undertaken...

BACKGROUND: High-heeled shoes have been suggested as a main explanation for the female dominance in foot pain and deformities. Aim of study was to test this hypothesis scientifically. METHODS: Women 40-66 years were included in two groups. 95 women who had worn high-heeled shoes at work for at least 5 years were compared to 102 women who had never worn high-heeled shoes at work. The investigations were weight bearing radiographs of foot and ankle, the SEFAS questionnaire and the AOFAS Clinical Rating System...

BACKGROUND: A precise pre-operative measurement of hindfoot malalignment is paramount to plan and obtain an accurate surgical correction. Hindfoot alignment is currently determined on standard weightbearing radiographs. However this is hampered by the superposition of the skeletal structures. Recent technology developed weightbearing cone beam CT to overcome this problem. The objective is to introduce a clinically relevant and reproducible method to measure hindfoot alignment on weightbearing CT...

BACKGROUND: The study aimed at finding whether there are any nail changes specific to treatment in clubfoot. METHODS: Sixty new, 26 undergoing serial corrective casting, and 247 clubfoot patients using foot abduction braces were prospectively studied. The casted and braced group formed the basis of the study to observe nail changes, if any. The new patients and opposite normal foot (in unilateral casted cases) were taken as controls. OBSERVATIONS: Acute paronychia, ingrown toe nail, onychoshizia, onychorrhexis, nail plate concavity, latent onychomadesis, and distal onycholysis were observed in feet undergoing corrective casting and bracing...

BACKGROUND: Although the Foot and Ankle Outcome Score (FAOS) is commonly used in several languages for a variety of foot disorders, it has not been validated specifically for foot and ankle arthritic conditions. The aims of the present study were to translate the original English FAOS into Thai and to evaluate the validity and reliability of the Thai version of the FAOS for the foot and ankle arthritic conditions. METHODS: The original FAOS was translated into Thai using forward-backward translation...

REVIEW
Adam Lomax, James Thornton, Dishan Singh
Paronychia is an inflammation of the tissues alongside the nail. It may be acute or chronic and can be seen in isolation or in association with an ingrowing toenail. Acute paronychial infections develop when a disruption occurs between the seal of the nail fold and the nail plate, providing a portal of entry for invading organisms. The treatment of paronychia associated with an ingrowing toenail is aimed at treating the causal toenail. In paronychia not associated with an ingrowing toenail, antibiotics may cure an early infection but surgical drainage of an abscess is often required...

Saif Sait, Mohd Mubashir, Rahij Anwar, Nissa Khan
We present a rare case with primary tubercular involvement of the foot, accomapanied by a reactionary (aseptic) effusion in the knee. The diagnosis was delayed due to unusual presentation and also because of failure to elicit a detailed history. Incision and drainage of the foot abscess and antitubercular drug therapy resulted in satisfactory control of tubercular infection. Polyarticular presentation may not always signify active tubercular focus in every joint; it may reflect reactive synovitis known as Poncet's disease, which resolves with multidrug antitubercular therapy...

Few reports in the literature have described the conversion of a surgically fused ankle to a total ankle replacement. The takedown of an autofusion and conversion to a prosthesis has not been described. We report the case of a patient with severe rheumatoid arthritis with an ankle autofusion fixed in equinus and severe talonavicular arthritis that was converted to ankle replacement using the Salto XT revision system. We describe the reasons why the decision was made to perform total ankle arthroplasty while concomitantly fusing the talonavicular joint, and discuss the rationale of the various surgical treatment options considered...
