Evaluation of pediatric foot and ankle pain

Review for the generalist: evaluation of pediatric foot and ankle pain Kristin M Houghton Pediatric Rheumatology 2008, 6:6 Abstract & link to free full text
Foot and ankle pain is common in children and adolescents. Problems are usually related to skeletal maturity and are fairly specific to the age of the child. Evaluation and management is challenging and requires a thorough history and physical exam, and understanding of the pediatric skeleton.

Foot and ankle surgery in Australia

Foot and ankle surgery in Australia: a descriptive analysis of the Medicare Benefits Schedule database, 1997-2006
Hylton B Menz, Mark F Gilheany and Karl B Landorf Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2008, 1:10
Foot and ankle problems are highly prevalent in the general community and a substantial proportion of people seek surgical treatment to alleviate foot pain and deformity. However, the epidemiology of foot and ankle surgery has not been examined in detail. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine patterns and costs of private sector foot surgery provision in Australia.

Foot Infections eMedicine Orthopedics

Foot infections can be difficult problems for physicians to treat due to the biomechanical complexities of the extremity and the underlying circumstances that cause the infections. Typically, they follow a traumatic event or tissue loss with contamination by foreign materials and/or colonization by bacteria. When a healthy patient or one without metabolic or peripheral vascular disease (PVD) presents with pedal infections, a traumatic process usually is involved. However, the more common presentation is that of a patient whose health is compromised with a metabolic or peripheral vascular defect that complicates optimum successful treatment.

Peroneal Tendon Pathology eMedicine Orthopedics

Problems may arise in either of the tendons alone, or both may be involved with subluxation. The hallmark of disorders of the peroneal tendons is laterally based ankle or foot pain. Whether the problem is tendinous degeneration or subluxation, the clinical manifestation is pain. With time, loss of eversion strength may occur.
Problems arising with the peroneus longus include tenosynovitis and tendinous disruption (acute or chronic). The os peroneum may be involved with the degenerative process or as a singular disorder and can be fractured or fragmented. Longitudinal tears of the peroneus longus are uncommon but have been reported.
Longitudinal tears of the tendon are the most common problem seen with the peroneus brevis tendon. These may be single or multiple. Tendinitis and tenosynovitis also may occur.
Subluxation of both peroneal tendons may occur following an acute traumatic episode or may be of a more chronic nature.
Synonyms and related keywords: disorders of the peroneal tendons, peroneal tendon subluxation, peroneus brevis disorders, disruptions of the peroneus longus, disruptions of the peroneus brevis, fractured os peroneum, fragmented os peroneum, longitudinal tears of the peroneus longus, peroneus brevis tears, longitudinal tears of the peroneus brevis tendon, ankle sprain, primary peroneus longus tendinopathy, peroneus longus rupture, ankle pain, foot pain, tendon rupture, tenosynovitis

Ultrasound evaluation of the abductor hallucis muscle - reliability study

The Abductor hallucis muscle (AbdH) plays an integral role during gait and is often affected in pathological foot conditions. The aim of this study was to establish a standardised protocol using diagnostic ultrasound imaging to evaluate the reliability of measurement of cross-sectional area, length and width of the AbdH muscle in asymptomatic adults.
