PURPOSE: Tibialis anterior tendon transfers (TATT) are commonly performed in young children following Ponseti casting for clubfeet. The classic TATT involves advancing the tendon through a hole drilled in the ossified cuneiform. The aim of this study was to determine if tendons transferred through unossified bones have untoward effects on subsequent bone development. METHOD: Twenty-five piglets underwent one of five surgical procedures. An 18-gauge needle was then used to place a tunnel through the bony or cartilaginous portion of the calcaneus (through direct visualization) and isolated slips of the flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) were placed through the tunnels, as determined by surgical procedure...

The most common cause of adolescent heel pain is calcaneal apophysitis also known as Sever's disease. The condition may occur in adolescent athletes, particularly those involved in running or jumping activities, during the pubertal growth spurt. The mean age of presentation in Sever's disease is ten, (range 7-15). It presents with posterior heel pain that is worse with activity and relieved by rest in most cases. Sever's disease, Osgood Schlatter's disease (tibial tuberosity) and Sinding-Larsen Johansson syndrome (distal patella) are all overuse syndromes brought about by repetitive submaximal loading and microtrauma...

BACKGROUND: Children with a clinical diagnosis of calcaneal apophysitis reportedly experience impaired physical ability. Patient reported outcome assessments measure the level of conditional specific interference in everyday life. The aim of this study was to assess and compare the child and parent perceptions of health related quality of life (QOL) associated with calcaneal apophysitis. METHODS: This is a longitudinal repeated measure study nested within a randomized comparative effectiveness trial...

BACKGROUND: The apophysis of the calcaneal bone forms an insertional region for the strong plantarflexors with the Achillis tendon and serves as an origin for the plantar aponeurosis and the short intrinsic foot muscles. Both components create a tendinous sling whithin which the apophysis acts as a pivot, which functions when it runs a straight course and its tension is adequate. This mechanism results in combined tractional and compressional forces which work together with the ground reaction forces during gait as molding elements of the calcaneous bone...

BACKGROUND: The structure of apophyses and apophyseal growth plates is not substantially different from those of epiphyses and epiphyseal growth plates. In contrast to epiphyseal growth plates, apophyses and apophyseal growth plates do not contribute to the longitudinal growth of the extremity. They are associated with their adjacent joints, triggering the lengths of their lever arms and influencing their external shape and internal architecture. The formative stimulus on apophyses is given by muscles and tendons inserting at the apophysis or canopying the apophsis...

The accurate assessment of skeletal maturity is essential in the management of orthopaedic conditions in the growing child. In order to identify the time of peak height velocity (PHV) in adolescents, two systems for assessing skeletal maturity have been described recently; the calcaneal apophyseal ossification method and the Sanders hand scores. The purpose of this study was to compare these methods in assessing skeletal maturity relative to PHV. We studied the radiographs of a historical group of 94 healthy children (49 females and 45 males), who had been followed longitudinally between the ages of three and 18 years with serial radiographs and physical examination...

BACKGROUND: In 2 recent studies, modified Oxford hip scores of 16 through 18 have been shown to predict an extremely high risk of contralateral slipping in unilateral slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). However, the modified Oxford system is not widely used. This may be due, in part, to the complexity of the scoring system, difficulty in viewing all 5 radiographic features on a single x-ray and phenotypic variation in the features. Ossification of the calcaneal apophysis provides an osteologic marker of skeletal maturation in relation to peak height velocity and has been described previously...

BACKGROUND: Calcaneal apophysitis is a frequent cause of heel pain in children and is known to have a significant negative effect on the quality of life in affected children. The most effective treatment is currently unknown. The purpose of this study is to evaluate 3 frequently used conventional treatment modalities for calcaneal apophysitis. METHODS: Three treatment modalities were evaluated and compared in a prospective randomized single-blind setting: a pragmatic wait and see protocol versus a heel raise inlay (ViscoHeel; Bauerfeind) versus an eccentric exercise regime under physiotherapeutic supervision...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Allen D Nicholson, Raymond W Liu, James O Sanders, Daniel R Cooperman
BACKGROUND: Ossification of the calcaneal apophysis has never been fully characterized. We examined the ossification sequence of the calcaneus in relation to ossification of the iliac apophysis and the timing of the peak height velocity (PHV). METHODS: Ninety-four healthy children (forty-nine girls and forty-five boys), from three to eighteen years old, were followed longitudinally through growth with annual serial radiographs and physical examinations. These were done at least annually from ten to fifteen years of age...

BACKGROUND: Calcaneal apophysitis (Sever disease) has been reported to be the most common cause of heel pain in athletic children. OBJECTIVE: The study aim was to compare plantar pressure, plantar surface contact area, distribution of body weight across the lower extremities, and prevalence of gastrocnemius ankle equinus and gastrocnemius-soleus ankle equinus (which can cause decreases in ankle dorsiflexion range of motion) in children with and without Sever disease...

BACKGROUND: Calcaneal apophysitis, or Sever's disease, is a traction apophysitis. It is a frequent cause of heel pain in children. Knowledge about the exact incidence of calcaneal apophysitis in the general population, however, is lacking. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. METHODS: From 34 general practices, records of patients between 6 and 17 years old, visiting the general practitioner (GP), were analysed. Diagnoses of calcaneal apophysitis were counted using computerised registration networks of GPs in 2008, 2009 and 2010...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of Sever's injury (apophysitis calcanei) has previously been partly based on radiographic findings in the calcaneal apophysis. Sclerosis and fragmentation have been supposed to represent signs of inflammation due to tractions from the Achilles tendon. The clinical findings, diagnostic criteria, and studied population are often poorly defined. We sought to define diagnostic criteria by analyzing clinical and radiographic characteristics in a population with Sever's injury and to compare the findings with those of a control group of matched, symptom-free children...

BACKGROUND: Calcaneal apophysitis, also commonly known as sever's disease, is a condition seen in children usually aged between 8-15 years. Conservative therapies, such as taping, heel lifts and orthotic intervention are accepted management practices for calcaneal apophysitis, though there is very little high quality research examining the efficacy of such treatment modalities. Previous narrative literature reviews and opinion pieces provide some evidence for the use of heel raises or orthoses...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: To our knowledge, the technique of molding orthoses to the non-load-bearing foot is still not widely investigated. The aim of this work is, therefore, first, to describe an off-loading custom-made technique and, second, to explain how it can be specifically adapted to treat Sever's disease. TECHNIQUES: A technique of directly molding orthoses to the non-load-bearing foot by vacuum forming an insole to the foot fabricated with a combination of polyvinyl chloride and polyester resins, 30 Shore A hardness and 148 kg/m(3) density polyethylene-ethylene-vinyl-alcohol, and a cushioning heel cup of 22 Shore A polyurethane, using a directly molding orthoses technique to the non-load-bearing foot by vacuum...

Osteochondrosis is a heterogeneous group of self-limiting conditions characterized by disturbance of enchondral ossification caused by a lack of circulation. Foot pain is a relatively common problem in children and adolescents and may be due to osteochondrosis. Osteochondrosis of the growing foot shows painful radiological alterations including increased density, fragmentation and irregularity of the epiphyses, physes and apophyses. Lacking etiologic and pathophysiologic information, ostoechondroses have been documented in almost every bone of the foot and therefore should be considered in the differential diagnosis when evaluating pediatric foot pain...
