AbstractDiseases of the foot and ankle are common but relatively difficult to diagnose because of the complexity of the anatomy and the frequent occurrence of multiple diseases at the same time. For these reasons, management of chronic foot pain is often clinically challenging. MRI is the imaging modality of choice in many types of diseases causing chronic foot pain, due to high resolution and excellent soft tissue contrast. However, in the postoperative state, the use of MRI can be limited by artifact from metallic devices, and it may be difficult to confirm whether the pathology detected on the MRI is the actual cause of...

Wilcock et al make the point that evaluation of medication is important in patients with severe hepatic impairment and a limited life expectancy.[1] We agree with the authors that more attention is needed to safe prescribing in these patients, and would like to share our experiences in the assessment of safe medication use in patients with cirrhosis. Over the last years, we developed a methodology to assess the safety of medication in cirrhosis based on literature review and expert opinion.[2] We evaluated over 209 medications[2], and although many recommendations of Wilcock were comparable to ours, we found significant di...
