The link between increased body weight and hindfoot complaints is largely based on correlation to single foot pathology. We retrospectively reviewed 6879 patients with tibialis posterior tendonitis (TPT), plantar fasciitis (PF), or both. Among patients with either TPT or PF, 1 in 11 (9%) had both.
Synovial chondromatosis is a benign synovial tumor that rarely occurs in the foot. We present a case of a 36-year-old male who underwent surgical excision of primary synovial chondromatosis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint.
Fetal tissues are well known for their therapeutic potential. They contain numerous growth factors, cytokines, and matrix components that promote regeneration of tissues while downregulating inflammation and scar formation
The combination of a dorsal approach to the plantar plate with a Weil’s metatarsal osteotomy has been shown to provide an adequate exposure for plantar plate repair. However, soft tissues in a restricted area of the metatarsophalangeal joint could present as a technical difficulty during suture retrieval during repair of the plantar plate. The purpose of this article is to describe the use of the McGlamry elevator for assistance in the retrieval of sutures through the proximal phalanx
