OBJECTIVE: Challenges persist in the reconstruction of the ankle and the foot with exposed tendons, joints, and bones as a result of severe burns and trauma. In flap elevation involving the sensitive superficial nerve, the local nerve was always sacrificed to obtain an anesthetic donor site; however, such a procedure introduced the possibility of painful neuromas. In this study, we present a desired clinical application of a modified reversed superficial peroneal artery flap, in which the superficial peroneal nerve is preserved...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Aggressive benign or malignant tumors in the proximal fibula may require en bloc resection of the fibular head, including the peroneal nerve and lateral collateral ligament. Here, we report the treatment outcomes of 12 patients with aggressive benign or malignant proximal fibula tumors. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Four patients with osteosarcoma and 1 patient with Ewing's sarcoma were treated with intentional marginal resections after effective chemotherapy, and 4 patients underwent fibular head resections without ligamentous reconstruction...

INTRODUCTION: Neurologic paralysis of the foot due to damage to the central nervous system is primarily caused by a cerebral insult. The ankle-foot orthosis (AFO), which is the classical conservative treatment option, is associated with drawbacks, e.g., increased contractures, limited mobilization from the sitting position, and cosmetic aspects. METHODS: Functional external electrostimulation (FES) is an suitable treatment method for patients with a central lesion and intact peroneal nerve...

OBJECTIVE: In the very elderly, their general condition and poor compliance with drug regimens can render the treatment of low back pain (LBP) difficult. We report the effectiveness of a less invasive treatment for intractable LBP from superior cluneal nerve entrapment neuropathy (SCN-EN) and gluteus medius muscle (GMeM) pain. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between April 2013 and March 2015, we treated 17 consecutive elders with LBP and buttock- and leg pain (BuP, LP). They were 4 men and 13 women ranging in age from 85 to 91 years (mean 86...

Peripheral nerve injury (PNI) usually results in poor functional recovery. Nerve repair is the common clinical treatment for PNI but is always obstructed by the chronic degeneration of the distal stump and muscle. Cell transplantation can alleviate the muscle atrophy after PNI, but the subsequent recovery of the locomotive function is seldom described. In this study, we combined cell transplantation and nerve repair to investigate whether the transplantation of embryonic spinal cord cells could benefit the delayed nerve repair...

INTRODUCTION: Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries. Despite appropriate conservative treatment, approximately 20-40% of patients continue to have chronic ankle instability and pain. In 75-80% of cases there is an isolated rupture of the anterior talofibular ligament. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A retrospective observational study was conducted on 21 patients surgically treated for chronic ankle instability by means of an arthroscopic anatomical repair, between May 2012 and January 2013...

BACKGROUND: Nusinersen is a 2'-O-methoxyethyl phosphorothioate-modified antisense drug being developed to treat spinal muscular atrophy. Nusinersen is specifically designed to alter splicing of SMN2 pre-mRNA and thus increase the amount of functional survival motor neuron (SMN) protein that is deficient in patients with spinal muscular atrophy. METHODS: This open-label, phase 2, escalating dose clinical study assessed the safety and tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and clinical efficacy of multiple intrathecal doses of nusinersen (6 mg and 12 mg dose equivalents) in patients with infantile-onset spinal muscular atrophy...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Osteoarthrosis is a main cause of knee pain in the elderly. Pain associated with this condition is often refractory to conservative treatment. Total knee replacement may be the best option for severe pathologies; however, the occurrence of a chronic pain state after knee replacement has been well documented in the literature. The previous descriptions of the genicular nerves have been considered somewhat inaccurate. This innervation is complex and exhibits significant interindividual variability...

Artemisia alba Turra (Asteraceae) is an Euro-Mediterranean plant used in Veneto (North-East of Italy) as traditional medicine for the treatment of various diseases. A. alba is a taxonomically problematic species, characterised by common polymorphism leading to a quite high variability in secondary metabolites content. Nonetheless, the phytochemical knowledge on its phytoconstituents, especially non-volatile components, is limited. In the present paper, the phytochemical composition of a tincture obtained from the aerial parts of A...

Coccidioidomycosis is an insidious infection caused by Coccidioides spp (C. immitis and C. posadasii). Disseminated disease occasionally involves tendon sheaths and synovium of the joints leading to tenosynovitis. Here, we describe the case of a 72-year-old woman from southern Arizona, who presented with right ankle pain, redness and swelling for 2 months. Her serum IgG was positive for C. immitis on complement fixation, and her MRI of the right ankle joint showed extensive tenosynovitis of the right peroneal tendons, and subtalar joint effusions with associated synovitis...

REVIEW
Gloria N L Wong, Tien Jin Tan
Posterior ankle pain is a cause of chronic pain and disability, afflicting a wide range of individuals. While proper identification of the cause is essential for timely and adequate treatment, identifying the cause and excluding mimickers is often challenging for the physician due to the complex nature of the joint. In addition, pathology that can cause posterior ankle pain may occur on their own or in co-existence. Clinical conditions that can present as posterior ankle pain include: posterior ankle impingement, Achilles tendon pathology, medial flexor tendon pathology, peroneal pathology, retrocalcaneal bursitis, posterior subtalar tarsal coalition, sinus tarsi, and tarsal tunnel syndrome...

INTRODUCTION: Up to 50% of patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) present lung perfusion defects after six months of anticoagulant treatment, suggesting residual pulmonary vascular obstruction (RPVO). The risk of recurrence in patients with RPVO remains unknown. The present study aims to assess the risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with RPVO after a first symptomatic episode of PE. METHODS: Consecutive patients who survived a first objectively proven acute PE, treated for at least three months with anticoagulants, were included and followed prospectively...

Yasushi Oshima, Joseph F Fetto
The low incidence of intraneural ganglion makes it difficult to diagnose and treat before it becomes serious nerve damage. This case describes a 69-year-old female, who suffered from the right drop foot and was diagnosed as a peroneal intraneural ganglion. Resection of the mass relieved the pain; however, motor function was not recovered. Early diagnosis and nerve decompression are essential for the peroneal intraneural ganglion before critical nerve symptoms.

: Intra-articular calcaneal osteoid osteoma is a very rare condition and the diagnosis as well as the treatment is extremely challenging. We report a case of a 19-year-old male with intra-articular osteoid osteoma of the calcaneus, initially treated for peroneal tenosynovitis with unsatisfactory results. Thorough diagnostic procedure revealed the superolateral location of a calcaneal osteoid osteoma, near the sinus tarsi. A cherry-red elevated lesion typical of an osteoid osteoma nidus was completely removed arthroscopically using the anterolateral portal and the middle portal for subtalar arthroscopy...

BACKGROUND: Tibioperoneal occlusive disease is one of the most difficult disease processes to successfully treat. Previous studies have attempted to address the outcomes of tibial interventions in this patient population; however, the majority of these study cohorts are composed of patients who have undergone concomitant aortoiliac or femoral procedures. Our objective was to present the outcomes of patients treated with endovascular intervention for isolated below-the-knee atherosclerotic disease causing critical limb ischemia (CLI)...
