M. Peroneus Quartus Causing Chronic Peroneal Compartment Syndrome in a Runner Treated by Endoscopic Fasciotomy: A Case Report

We present the rare case of a 47-year-old male long-distance runner who was referred to our hospital with a longstanding pain in his left calf. Clinical history, as well as ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging scans, showed an accessory peroneal muscle. This muscle was identified as a peroneus quartus muscle. On ultrasound, controlled intracompartmental pressure measurement, a chronic peroneal compartment syndrome, was diagnosed. We performed an endoscopic-assisted fasciotomy of the peroneal compartment. This resolved the patient's symptoms completely and allowed the runner to return to competition shortly after the surgery.

Conclusion Four types of USL endometriosis were summarized according to the ultrasound characteristics and the distribution of USL involvement was also concluded according to the results of surgery. TVS has significant value in diagnosis of USL endometriosis and can be used as a first-line tool for diagnosis. Ethics Statement The Medical Science Ethics Committee of Shenzhen People’s Hospital approved this study (No. 2018100). Each patient or an appropriate family member provided informed written consent to obtain clinical materials. Author Contributions YZ and BD conceived and designed the whole experiments and ...

Conclusion: Palpation-guided placement of catheters for TP pressure measurements is suboptimal in more than half of the patients with suspected lower leg dp-CECS. Optimizing the pressure catheter tip positioning technique may improve diagnostic accuracy in dp-CECS.

Conclusion: MRI under the conditions described here seems to be safe with the implants used in this study. In particular, the induced temperature is much lower with paddle compared to conventional leads due to the different electrode design. The induced voltage does not carry any risks. However, these findings cannot automatically be transferred to other implants or other scanning conditions, and further studies are needed. The biomedical companies should be encouraged to develop MR-conditional paddle leads. Also, further research is necessary to study the mechanism of action of cortical stimulation in the future.Stereotac...

This study evaluates clinical and ultrasound (US) outcomes after surgical repair of acute and chronic PM tendon rupture. Materials and methods Twelve men with PM tendon rupture (9 right and 3 left shoulders) were enrolled. Mean age was 34.6 years, and mean follow-up was 60 months (range 12–108). Rupture was diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging. Eight patients underwent direct tendon repair (acute group) and 4 had allograft reconstruction (chronic group). Pain, range of motion, strength recovery and return to sports were assessed. Postoperative X-ray and US scan...
