Footprint is one of the most common types of physical evidence recovered at a crime scene. The forensic footprint evidence may play an important role in establishing the identity of a person; therefore, its examination is of prime importance. A link may be established by observing and comparing the morphological features of footprints with the perpetrator. These barefoot prints may be present as a two-dimensional print or a three-dimensional imprint depending on the substrate upon which they have been impressed upon and accordingly different methods and techniques are implemented in order to identify the questioned prints...

Background : Down syndrome is the most common chromosomal abnormality and a cause of intellectual disability. It is also associated with orthopaedic and musculoskeletal problems of the locomotive apparatus, especially of the feet. These problems are believed to have a harmful effect on health, social functioning, and mobility. In addition, these persons generally don't have access to podiatric health services, even when their foot problems are well known, because of limited access to healthcare facilities. The goal of our research was to evaluate and compare the foot health status of study participants with and without Down syndrome and to determine whether inadequate footwear is being used with normalized reference values...

The risk of hemorrhage always exists in anticoagulated patients with an elevated international normalized ratio (INR), a risk that must be measured against the necessity for surgical procedures. The objective of the present retrospective medical record study was to assess the safety with which limb salvage procedures can be conducted in patients with an INR >1.4. The medical records of 231 patients who had undergone limb salvage procedures by 1 surgeon at the Yale New Haven Health System from November 2008 through July 2014 were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Hallux Valgus (HV) is the most common fore-foot deformity, which causes foot pain and limited motion that are encountered in podiatric and orthopedic practices. The purpose of this study is to develop a reliable pattern recognition method to identify the presence of HV based on plantar force measurements. METHOD: Forces at five discrete metatarsal regions are measured at discrete time intervals under the right foot. Under this method, it is hypothesized that force measurement at a given time interval is related to the forces at a previous time interval by using Markovian transition matrix (T matrix)...

In addition to the fibularis longus and brevis muscles, a number of anomalous muscles or tendons can arise from the lateral compartment of the leg. The authors describe a bilateral and robust fibularis digiti quinti (FDQ) tendon present in the foot of a 99-year-old female cadaver, present the incidence of this tendon in a cohort of 26 cadavers dissected by podiatric-medical students for a lower-extremity anatomy course, and discuss the anthropological and clinical significance of the findings. In these specimen, the FDQ tendon arose from the fibularis brevis tendon proximal to the lateral malleolus, but did not separate completely from the fibularis brevis tendon until passing through the inferior fibular retinaculum...

Thrombocytopenia is an important medical condition to understand prior to performing procedures in the foot and ankle. We have set forth to highlight factors a physician should take into consideration before performing procedures in the thrombocytopenic patient. A retrospective cohort analysis at a large academic institution was undertaken utilizing a cohort discovery tool to discover incidence and management strategies for patients with foot-related conditions that require in-office procedures. We demonstrate that a full history and physical are important to guide treatment along with complete blood count testing prior to intervention...
