Epithelial sheath neuroma is a rarely recognized but established entity in the medical literature. First described in 2000 by Requena et al, there have only been 7 published cases to date, mostly in female patients and presenting as symptomatic solitary lesions on the back without a known history of trauma. In 2006, Beer et al described and reviewed a dozen cases in which epithelial sheath neuroma-like features were seen in the advent of a surgical procedure, which was termed "re-excision perineural invasion" and attributed to possible eccrine duct implantation during surgery...

INTRODUCTION: None of the existing treatments in the management of painful end-neuromas of the superficial branch of the radial nerve (SBRN) has been proven superior due to high levels of pain relapse. Fat grafts enriched with the stromal vascular fraction (SVF) could act as a mechanic barrier with biological effects decreasing the resorption rate and boosting the graft's regenerative potential. This study describes the novel surgical treatment technique of SVF-enriched fat grafting. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this clinical study, five consecutive patients treated for painful end-neuromas of the SBRN between 2012 and 2013 were analyzed retrospectively...

A variety of surgical procedures exist for repair of both traumatic and degenerative osseous and soft-tissue pathologic conditions involving the foot and ankle. It is necessary for the radiologist to be familiar with these surgical procedures, so as to assess structural integrity, evaluate for complicating features, and avoid diagnostic pitfalls. Adequate interpretation of postoperative changes often requires access to surgical documentation to evaluate not only the surgery itself but the expected timeline for resolution of normal postoperative changes versus progressive disease...

Background: The repair of a segmental peripheral nerve injury is a clinical challenge. Several studies have been performed to determine superior methods for overcoming nerve gaps. The purpose of this study was to investigate if the inside-out slided epineurium of the distal segment of an injured nerve can serve as a conduit to bridge a short nerve defect (10 mm). Methods: Nineteen sciatic nerves in Sprague-Dawley rats were transected, and a 10-mm gap was left between the ends. A section of distal epineurium was pulled inside out to bridge the gap...

AIMS: This is the first prospective study to report the pre- and post-operative patient reported outcomes and satisfaction scores following excision of interdigital Morton's neuroma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between May 2006 and April 2013, we prospectively studied 99 consecutive patients (111 feet) who were to undergo excision of a Morton's neuroma. There were 78 women and 21 men with a mean age at the time of surgery of 56 years (22 to 78). Patients completed the Manchester-Oxford Foot Questionnaire (MOXFQ), Short Form-12 (SF-12) and a supplementary patient satisfaction survey three months pre-operatively and six months post-operatively...

Traumatic and trauma-related amputations represent unfortunate sequelae of severe injury, but should not be viewed as a treatment failure and may represent the best reconstructive option for some patients. Lessons from recent military conflicts have guided the evolution of modern surgical techniques and rehabilitation management of this challenging patient population, and treatment at a specialty center may improve patient outcomes. Despite appropriate management, however, surgical complications remain common and revision surgery is often necessary...

BACKGROUND: Fingertip injuries are very common in emergency departments. According to the literature, Allen III and IV fingertip injuries should be treated with local skin flaps. Instead, we have treated these kinds of injuries in recent years with a semi-occlusive dressing. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcome after semi-occlusive dressing therapy with respect to soft tissue cover, recovery of sensibility and duration of disability. METHODS: We retrospectively analysed 77 fingertip injuries (39 Allen I, 25 Allen II, 9 Allen III, 4 Allen IV) from 2008-2011 in 23 women and 54 men who were treated with a semi-occlusive dressing...

Palisaded encapsulated neuroma is a rare, benign cutaneous tumor. It most commonly presents as a solitary, flesh-colored, dome-shaped nodule affecting the face. However, albeit rarely, palisaded encapsulated neuroma may also appear on the trunk, genitals, or extremities. We describe the clinical and pathologic findings of a male patient who presented with a palisaded encapsulated neuroma on his left flank. In addition, we review the characteristics of patients with truncal palisaded encapsulated neuromas and summarize the clinical and histologic differential diagnosis of this tumor...

BACKGROUND: Morton's neuroma, a painful enlargement of the plantar digital nerve between the metatarsal heads, is a common cause of metatarsalgia. The etiology and treatment are still a controversial matter. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term follow-up results of neurectomy through a dorsal approach and to identify prognostic factors that can affect the final outcome. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 41 patients who were treated for Morton's neuroma...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic neuromas are rare benign tumors, which are common in trauma or post-operation and accompanied with obvious symptoms of pain. This study will show the superficial peroneal nerve neuroma occurring after resection of hemangioma. CASE PRESENTATION: A 44-year-old male had an operation of the right leg cavernous hemangioma resection in 1995. Half a year after the operation, pain around the wound appeared and gradually aggravated. The patient had the lesion exploration resection in 2013, and the pathological result showed traumatic neuroma...

Bowler's thumb is a rare traumatic neuropathy of the ulnar digital nerve of the thumb. We present a case of bowler's thumb in a 21-year-old male recreational bowler who presented with a painful mass on the ulnar side of the right thumb. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the hand was inconclusive. However, subsequent ultrasound (US) showed asymmetric enlargement of the ulnar digital nerve of the thumb with marked epineural thickening corresponding to the palpable mass, confirming the clinical diagnosis of bowler's thumb...

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the ultrasonographic (US) features of traumatic neuromas in breast cancer patients after mastectomy. Methods: This study was performed with approval from our Institutional Review Board, and the requirement for informed consent was waived. Six traumatic neuromas in five patients were included in this study. The US findings of traumatic neuromas were evaluated retrospectively by two radiologists according to the Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) lexicon...

AIM: We investigated the clinical presentation and management issues of unilateral vestibular schwannomas in childhood without evidence of neurofibromatosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Ten pediatric patients with unilateral vestibular schwannomas and no evidence of neurofibromatosis were treated by the senior author at Tiantan Hospital from January 1994 to December 2014. The clinical manifestations, neuroimaging findings, treatment methods, and therapeutic results were retrospectively reviewed...

Glomus tumours of the elbow remain a challenge to diagnose correctly and efficiently. We present a case of a glomus tumour as a complication of elbow surgery. This has not been described previously. This case highlights the possibility of injury as a causative factor in these tumours and the difficulty in differentiating them from postoperative neuromas by clinical presentation and ultrasound imaging alone.
