INTRODUCTION: Freiberg's infraction is an osteonecrosis affecting the metatarsal head whose pathogenesis is not fully understood, although stress overloading by multiple microtraumas remains the most widely accepted cause. Operative treatment, by different techniques, is necessary when conservative treatment fails. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 31-year old woman presented with left foot severe pain, especially at the level of the metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ) of the second ray, underestimated upon initial evaluation...

Chronic wounds (VLU: venous leg ulcer, DFU: diabetic foot ulcer, PU: pressure ulcer, or complex wounds) affect a significant proportion of the population. Despite appropriate standard wound care, such ulcers unfortunately may remain open for months or even years. The use of leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) to cure skin ulcers is a simple and inexpensive method, widely used in some countries but unknown or neglected in most others. This auto-controlled prospective cohort study explored and quantified accurately for the first time the adjunctive benefits of topical applications of L-PRF in the management of such refractory ulcers in a diverse group of patients...

Forefoot fractures are frequently accompanied by severe soft tissue damage. Therefore, treatment should focus not only on fractures but also on soft tissue damage, for which external fixation can be used as a surgical option. A 63-year-old woman presented to the emergency clinic of our hospital with forefoot pain after a motorcycle accident. Comminuted fracture of the proximal part of the metatarsal was diagnosed. Because of the swollen foot and fracture comminution, an operation using the Ilizarov mini external fixator was performed to prevent further damage to the soft tissue...

BACKGROUND: Disease-related foot pathology is recognised to have a significant impact on mobility and functional capacity in the majority of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The forefoot is widely affected and the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints are the most common site of symptoms. The plantar plates are the fibrocartilaginous distal attachments of the plantar fascia inserting into the five proximal phalanges. Together with the transverse metatarsal ligament they prevent splaying of the forefoot and subluxation of the MTP joints...

J Allen Davis, Andrew Kraft
Traditionally, human health risk assessments have relied on qualitative approaches for hazard identification, which involves weight of evidence determinations that integrate evidence across multiple studies. Recently, the National Research Council has recommended the development of quantitative approaches for evidence integration, including the application of meta-analyses, to help summarize and evaluate the results of a systematic review. In the meta-analytic approach, a pooled effect size is calculated after consideration of multiple potential confounding factors in order to determine whether the entire database under consideration indicates a chemical is a hazard...

BACKGROUND: Ankle arthrodesis provides satisfactory functional outcome based on basic daily activities, but information regarding more demanding tasks is limited. Also, studies reporting longer term survival and complication rates are sparse and concern small study populations. This study reports functional outcome with more focus on demanding tasks and sports and reports the mid- to long-term union and complication rates in a large study population. METHODS: Between 2005 and 2010, an ankle arthrodesis was performed on 185 ankles...

OBJECTIVE: To establish whether the use of ultrasound to direct shock waves to the area of greater calcification in calcaneal enthesopathies was more effective than the common procedure of directing shock waves to the point where the patient has the most tenderness. DESIGN: Two-armed nonblinded randomized control trial with allocation concealment. SETTING: The Sports Clinic at Sydney University. PATIENTS: Participants 18 years or older with symptomatic plantar fasciitis (PF) (with heel spur) or calcific Achilles tendinopathy (CAT)...

BACKGROUND: Bladder spasm is a common side effect of urological surgery. Main treatment modalities include opioids or anticholinergic medication; however, bladder spasms still occur even after these interventions. Recent studies indicate that transcutaneous stimulation of the foot can result in 50% increase in bladder capacity in healthy adults, and inhibit bladder detrusor overactivity in spinal cord injured patients. In this study, we examined the effects of transcutaneous electrical stimulation of the foot on bladder spasms related symptoms...

RATIONALE: This case may be due to basal ganglia dysfunction, which was probably caused by abnormal activation of dopamine 1-like receptor (D1R) boosted by pramipexole binding on dopamine 3-like receptor (D3R) in a situation where D3R was overexpressed by the chronic treatment of L-dopa. PATIENT CONCERNS: Striatal hand and foot deformities. DIAGNOSES: Striatal hand and foot deformities with CRPS. INTERVENTIONS: Steroid treatemnt and withdrawal of the pramipexole...

BACKGROUND: Several studies have given frequencies of pain in children with cerebral palsy, but comparing the findings is difficult. We aimed to estimate the prevalence of pain in non-ambulatory children with cerebral palsy and describe their characteristics by presence or absence of pain. METHODS: Data were extracted from an ongoing longitudinal national cohort following non-ambulatory children with severe cerebral palsy aged 3 to 10years over 10years. We described and compared data for the first 240 children at inclusion by presence or absence of pain...

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is a recognised cause of lower limb peripheral arterial disease in young adults. We describe the cases of two otherwise healthy brothers who presented with the condition 5 years apart. The first brother, who is also the first author of this case report, presented aged 19 with worsening, right-sided, exercise-induced lower leg pain and transient foot pallor. Imaging confirmed PAES and irreversible localised arterial damage. Surgery was performed to release the entrapment and resect the section of diseased artery...

Lesions of the distal deep digital flexor tendon (DDFT) are frequently diagnosed using MRI in horses with foot pain. Intralesional injection of biologic therapeutics shows promise in tendon healing; however, accurate injection of distal deep digital flexor tendon lesions within the hoof is difficult. The aim of this experimental study was to evaluate accuracy of a technique for injection of the deep digital flexor tendon within the hoof using MRI-guidance, which could be performed in standing patients. We hypothesized that injection of the distal deep digital flexor tendon within the hoof could be accurately guided using open low-field MRI to target either the lateral or medial lobe at a specific location...

Tandem pore-domain Halothane Inhibited K(+) channel (THIK1) is a two-pore-domain potassium channel (K2P) present in dorsal root ganglia (DRG). We previously demonstrated that THIK1 mRNA levels in the DRG dropped ipsilaterally 1day after CFA-induced cutaneous inflammation (CFA1). In this study we aimed to identify the currently unknown DRG subpopulations expressing THIK1, and to investigate the relationship between the channel and both inflammatory and spontaneous pain in normal rats. Using a combination of immunohistochemistry, western blotting and behavioural tests, we found that all small neurons and large groups of medium and large DRG neurons express THIK1...
