Peroneus Tertius Syndrome: A Rare Cause of Anterolateral Ankle and Rearfoot Pain

We present a retrospective case series involving 4 patients diagnosed with peroneus tertius syndrome, discuss symptoms for clinical diagnosis, review radiographic imaging, and outline a minimally invasive operative technique for resection of the symptomatic tendon. Furthermore, we sought to evaluate postoperative outcomes and satisfaction scores after surgical management. All patients experienced resolution of symptoms by the fourth postoperative week. There was a statistically significant improvement in visual analog scale scores (average ± SD, 7.75 ± 0.96 preoperative to 0.75 ± 1.19 postoperative) (p = .002). Overall patient satisfaction was 100%, with improved functional status and no evidence of recurrent symptoms at final follow-up (average 18.88 ± 8.68 months). Our results demonstrate that excision of a symptomatic peroneus tertius provides resolution of symptoms, facilitates a quick return to activity, and has excellent patient outcomes. We suggest that during the evaluation of anterolateral ankle or rearfoot pain, peroneus tertius syndrome be considered as part of the differential diagnosis.

We present the case of a young woman with bilateral osteonecrosis of the femoral head at varying stages of progression; we also highlight other important comorbid complications (eg, chronic pain requiring long-term opioids, debility, and social isolation) and postoperative outcomes. In this review, partly based on recommendations on osteonecrosis management from the 2014 evidence-based report on sickle cell disease from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institutes, we also discuss early signs or symptoms of osteonecrosis of the femoral head, radiographic diagnosis and staging criteria, hydroxyurea effect on progression to...

Study Design. Retrospective cohort study. Objective. The aim of this study was to compare clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients who underwent stand-alone lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) to those who underwent posterolateral fusion (PLF) for symptomatic adjacent segment disease (ASD). Summary of Background Data. Recent studies have suggested that LLIF can successfully treat ASD; however, there are no studies to date that compare LLIF with the traditional open PLF in this cohort. Methods. A total of 47 consecutive patients who underwent LLIF or PLF for symptomatic ASD between January 2007 and Augus...

​Fingertip injuries and amputations are common in the emergency department, often occurring on weekends when consultants are not available. Some experienced physicians may consider rongeuring distal tuft amputation injuries, but simple closure and expert consultation for more difficult cases are suggested.A fingertip amputation within zone III involving total amputation of the distal tip, fingernail, matrix, and tuft. Photos by M. Roberts.Care of fingertip amputations in the ED should focus on removing debris and cleaning the wound as best as possible, closing the wound using available skin, bandaging and splinting for c...

This article highlights its key features to promote better awareness and recognition, by reviewing clinical findings and imaging of patients across various modalities including plain radiographs, ultrasound and computed tomography. The management of neurogenic heterotopic ossification is limited by late identification and consequently clinicians should always be aware of this potentially significant diagnosis. Recognition in the acute hospital setting before transfer to rehabilitation services may prevent further clinical sequelae including urinary tract infection and pressure ulcers.

Introduction Fronto-ethmoid ‘Ivory Osteomas’ are rare, benign, slow growing tumours. They have a slight male preponderance (M:F ratio 1.5-2.0:1) with the frontal sinus the most common site for their development .Lesions are often identified as incidental findings on routine radiographic imaging. Surgical intervention is in dicated for large, symptomatic lesions, which can present with symptoms such as facial pain, headache, diplopia, vertical dystopia and orbital proptosis.

The objective of this study was to evaluate prospectively the clinical effects and pain relief of unilateral percutaneous ky phoplasty (PKP) on osteoporotic thoraco‐lumbar burst fractures.Methods46 patients with osteoporotic thoraco ‐lumbar burst fractures were treated by PKP in our hospital from January 2016 to January 2017. The height of posterior wall (HPW), the height of anterior wall (HAW)and kyphotic angle (KA) were measured via x‐ray radiographs before surgery, one day after surgery and at final follow‐up. Visual a nalogue scale (VAS) score and the oswestry disability index (ODI) score were evaluated preoper...

ConclusionsThe best management strategy of RIBP is prevention by reducing total RT doses and close follow-up. However, when RIBP occurs, we recommend treatment with HBO therapy, steroids, trental, and vitamin E as tolerable.
