: Soft tissue sarcomas of the foot and ankle are common. Currently, there exist limited data on prognostic variables. The aim of this study was to review our institution's experience with soft tissue sarcomas of the foot and ankle to identify factors affecting outcomes and survivorship. We reviewed the records of 62 foot and ankle soft tissue sarcomas treated with definitive surgery at our institution between 1992 and 2013. The cohort consisted of 35 males and 27 females with a mean age at diagnosis of 45 years and a mean follow-up of 7 years...

: Chondroid syringoma is a cutaneous sweat gland tumor. Despite its relative rarity, a benign and malignant variant have been described. We present a case report of chondroid syringoma of the foot in a healthy patient. Definitive diagnosis required histopathologic examination, while treatment included wide resection. Surgeons who are presented with a painless, solid nodule in the lower extremities should be cognizant of this neoplasm. LEVELS OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, Level IV: Case report...

Intraneural lipomas, neurofibrolipomas, lipofibromatous hamartomas, and perineural lipomas are subsets of hamartomas that typically present as fibroadipose, soft tissue masses within the epineurium of a nerve. Several cases involving intraneural lipomas of the median nerve in the upper extremity have been reported; however, owing to the lesion's rare incidence in the foot and ankle, only a select few cases involving the superficial peroneal nerve have been reported. We present the first case of a tibial nerve intraneural lipoma in a 42-year-old female with a follow-up period of 2 years...

BACKGROUND: Structural allografts have been used to correct deformities or to fill bone defects secondary to tumor excisions, trauma, osteochondral lesions, or intercalary arthrodesis. However, the quality of published evidence supporting the use of allograft transplantation in foot and ankle surgery has been reported as fair. The purpose of this study was to report the overall survival of structural allograft in the foot and ankle after tumor resection, and the survival according to the type of allograft and the complication rates in the medium to long term...

INTRODUCTION: Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath is most commonly found in the flexor aspect of hand and wrist and is rare in the foot and ankle. CASE REPORT: A 49-year-old lady noticed a right lateral foot mass for 10 years. Magnetic resonance imaging suggested that the mass is originated from the peroneal tendons. The mass was excised and intra-operative findings showed that the tumor came from the peroneus brevis tendon sheath. Histological study confirmed the diagnosis of giant cell tumor...

Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) arising in the distal lower extremities pose a therapeutic challenge due to concerns of functional morbidity. The impact of surgical margins on local recurrence‑free survival (LRFS) and overall survival (OS) still remains controversial. The aim of this study was to identify prognostic indicators of survival and functional outcome in patients with STS of the distal lower extremities through a long‑term follow‑up. Between 1999 and 2014, 120 patients with STS of the foot, ankle and lower leg were treated surgically at our institution...

Giant cell tumor of the tendon sheath (GCTTS), also termed tendosynovial giant cell tumor, is a benign, slow-growing tumor that originates from the tendon sheath or bursa. GCTTS of the foot and ankle is much less frequently reported compared with GCTTS of the hand and knee. However, GCTTS should be considered as a differential diagnosis of soft tissue tumors of the foot and ankle. The optimal treatment strategy for GCTTS in the foot and ankle is controversial due to a scarcity of cases. The present study reports the case of a patient that presented with localized intra-articular GCTTS originating from the capsule of the ankle, which is a rare anatomical location for this tumor...

Resection of the distal fibula is used to treat malignant or benign locally aggressive tumors involving this region. Current reconstructive techniques are limited by undesirable functional deficits. The authors present a part-retrospective and part-prospective case-comparison of 2 patient groups (study and control) treated for malignant or benign locally aggressive primary bone tumors of the distal fibula. Patients in the study group underwent a novel surgical technique involving distal transportation of the ipsilateral proximal portion of the fibula after periosteal dissection and osteotomy with subsequent proximal periosteal reconstruction...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effectiveness of our department's therapeutic regimen and treatment of complications during the perioperative period of hemophilia-related osteoarthropathy. METHODS: In this retrospective study, data on 101 patients with hemophilia who had undergone operative treatment in our hospital from January 2000 to August 2014 were assessed. Ninety-one of the patients had hemophilia A and 10 hemophilia B. All patients were male. Changes in Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), Harris and American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) scores, occurrence of complications during the perioperative period and the clinical treatment and prognosis pre- and postoperatively and during follow-up were analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: Solid malignancies at the foot and ankle region are rare and include mainly soft-tissue sarcomas, bone sarcomas, and skin malignancies. Complete surgical resection with clear margins still remains the mainstay of therapy in these malignancies. However, attainment of negative surgical margins in patients with locally advanced tumors of the foot and ankle region may require extensive surgery and could result in loss of extremity function. In these circumstances, plastic surgical techniques can frequently reduce functional impairment and cover soft-tissue defects, particularly in cases of large tumor size or localization adjacent to critical anatomic structures, thereby improving the quality of life for these patients...

Neural fibrolipomas are exceedingly rare benign tumors composed of hypertrophied fibrofatty tissue intermixed with nerve tissues. Our review of the published data identified only 15 cases of this tumor involving the foot and/or ankle region. An otherwise healthy 35-year-old male was referred for evaluation of a painless soft tissue mass present in the anterior left ankle. The mass had been present for approximately 6 to 7 years and had recently increased in size. Physical examination demonstrated a prominent, fluctuant mass present in the left ankle measuring 4 cm in diameter...

UNLABELLED: Tumors of the foot and ankle are rarely encountered in the general patient population. Even among studies of tumor patients, foot and ankle neoplasms are uncommon. Given the weight-bearing demands of the foot and its relatively small area, even small masses are likely to be symptomatic and/or palpable to both patient and physician. Only 3% of osseous neoplasms are found in this region, while 8% of benign soft tissue tumors and 5% of malignant soft tissue tumors are localized to the foot and ankle...

Diffuse-type tenosynovial giant cell tumor (D-GCTS) is a rare benign lesion that not only frequently occurs in the fingers, but also along the tendon sheaths of the foot and ankle. The present study reports the cases of two middle-aged patients that were diagnosed with D-GCTS. The presentation of the D-GCTS lesions was extremely rare, as the tumors were located in the temporal fossa and threatened the skull base and external auditory canal. There were similarities and differences between the two patients in their clinical symptoms, disease progressions and invading sites...

Pain and focal masses in the foot and ankle are frequently encountered and often initiate a workup including imaging. It is important to differentiate benign lesions from aggressive benign or malignant lesions. In this review, multiple examples of osseous and soft tissue tumors of the foot and ankle will be presented. Additionally, the compartmental anatomy of the foot and ankle will be discussed in terms of its relevance for percutaneous biopsy planning and eventual surgery. Finally, a general overview of the surgical management of benign, benign aggressive and malignant tumors of the foot and ankle will be discussed...

Osteosarcoma is the most common bone tumor that occurs in children and young adults with prevalence of teenage. There can be identified many subtypes of osteosarcoma by how they look on X-rays and under the microscope. Osteosarcoma can be classified as high-grade, intermediate grade, or low-grade. This has a significant prognostic value of tumor development suggesting the growth rate and the potential for expansion. Between 2009-2013, in the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, University Emergency Hospital of Bucharest, Romania, were treated seven cases of osteosarcoma of the proximal third of the tibia in young, early-diagnosed cases without metastasis...

The foot and ankle are rare sites of involvement for giant cell tumor of tendon sheath. We present three rare cases of giant cell tumor of tendon sheath arising from the tendon sheaths of the flexor hallucis longus, peroneus brevis, and extensor hallucis brevis tendons, along with a literature review of such cases in the foot and ankle region. All of the patients were treated with surgical excision of the mass and were asymptomatic after minimum follow-up of 18 months. Giant cell tumor of tendon sheath involving the foot and ankle region is a rare clinical entity, and good results can be expected after surgical excision...

Chondroid syringoma is a rare tumor with the potential for malignant transformation and distant metastasis. The site of predilection for benign chondroid syringoma is the head and neck region, and it is less likely to involve the foot. In contrast, malignant chondroid syringoma is more commonly encountered in the extremities and is characterized by rapid growth, local invasion, and distant metastasis. We report an unusual case of benign chondroid syringoma in a 47-year-old female who presented with a 20-year history of a mass in her left foot to bring such cases to the attention of foot and ankle specialists...
