Contemporary Management of Displaced Intra-Articular Calcaneal Fractures
It is with great pleasure that I serve as Guest Editor for this issue of Clinics in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery devoted to “Current Perspectives on Management of Calcaneal Fractures.” Surprisingly few textbooks or Clinics in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery issues devoted entirely to calcaneal fractures exist, and many of those that do are outdated or involve fixation systems that are not available for use in the Unit ed States. The authors selected for this issue are respected authorities on the topics they have been assigned, and they have been gracious enough to take substantial time from their practices an...

Innervation Pattern of Lumbrical Muscles of the Foot in Human Fetuses.
CONCLUSIONS: This study classified innervation pattern of foot lumbricals and defined 2 new innervation types. During surgeries on foot and ankle region in neonatal and early childhood terms, awareness of the communicating branches between MPN and LPN and innervation of intrinsic muscles of the foot such as lumbricals might aid in preventing possible complications.

The Misdiagnosis of Acral Lentiginous Melanoma: Three Case Presentations.
We present three cases of ALM that were initially misdiagnosed and referred to the senior author in an effort to assess why misdiagnosis is common. The existing literature illuminates clinical pitfalls in diagnosing ALM. The differential diagnosis of many different podiatric skin and nail disorders should include ALM. While making the correct diagnosis is essential, the prognosis is affected by the duration of the disease and level of invasiveness. Unfortunately, most of the reported misdiagnosed cases are of later stage and worse prognosis. This review highlights that foot and ankle specialists should meet suspect lesions...

An Unusual Case of a Fibular Sesamoid Phalangeal Ligament Tear Due to Chronic Trauma.
Abstract Injuries involving the first metatarsophalangeal joint and its associated structures are common, especially in athletes. However, injuries to the hallucal sesamoid complex comprised only 3% of all podiatric sports medicine injuries reported by Agosta.1 This case study reports a female ballet dancer with an isolated fibular sesamoid retraction injury that presented with a history of chronic micro trauma secondary to overuse. When consulting epidemiological studies of forefoot injuries involving the hallucal sesamoid complex, we were unable to find a single instance of an isolated retraction of the fibular ...

Lower Complication Rate Following Ankle Fracture Fixation by Orthopaedic Surgeons Versus Podiatrists.
DISCUSSION: Surgical treatment of ankle fractures by orthopaedic surgeons was associated with lower rates of malunion/nonunion when compared with that by podiatrists. The reasons for these differences are likely multifactorial but warrants further investigation. Our findings have important implications in patients who must choose a surgeon to surgically manage their ankle fracture, as well as policymakers who determine the scope of practice.

Treatments of exercise and orthotic devices for plantar heel pain: The TREADON feasibility and pilot study
Purpose: Plantar heel pain (PHP) is a common foot complaint, affecting approximately 10% of adults. Despite its impact on quality-of-life, optimal management remains unclear. The aims of this feasibility and pilot trial were to inform the robust design of a future, main, randomised clinical trial of advice, exercise and foot orthoses interventions for adults with PHP. Specific objectives reported here include evaluation of: (i) adherence, credibility and satisfaction of the trial interventions by participants and (ii) the feasibility and acceptability of physiotherapists and podiatrists delivering both interventions interc...

Management of Calcaneal Fracture Malunion with Bone Block Distraction Arthrodesis
One of the most severe complications in calcaneal fractures is a malunion. When a malunion occurs, subtalar bone block distraction arthrodesis provides restoration of calcaneal height, length, correction of varus deformity, and elimination of subtalar joint arthritis. A systematic review showed the union rate for all procedures was 95.78%. The overall complication rate was 38% for all procedures. This is the first study to categorically break down complications with statistical analysis. The data presented indicate the level of difficulty of the subtalar distraction bone block arthrodesis for calcaneal malunions and may ev...

Clinical Management of Acute, Closed Displaced Intra-articular Calcaneal Fractures
Performing a thorough clinical evaluation following an acute displaced intra-articular calcaneal fracture is paramount for optimal surgical timing and long-term outcome. Initial survey must entail a comprehensive evaluation to rule out concurrent injuries. Focused lower extremity examination must involve a complete neurovascular and soft tissue evaluation to identify such conditions as compartment syndrome or compromised integument, which necessitate urgent intervention. Establishing baseline radiographs and advanced imaging is vital for surgical planning. Once deemed stable, protocol-driven treatment is best to ensure pro...

Prevention of Infection in Foot and Ankle Surgery
The literature for prevention of surgical infection related primarily to foot and ankle surgery is sparse, with most attention on total joint replacement and abdominal surgery. Attention should be paid to preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative elements, which can have an effect on the development of postoperative infection. Although antibiotic prophylaxis typically is discussed in isolation, inclusion of this step into the process enhances the overall evaluation of surgery with respect to infection. This evolution provides for better patient outcomes and decreases the likelihood of an infection incurred after foot...

Perioperative Considerations in the Surgical Patient
This issue of Clinics in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, devoted to “Perioperative Considerations in the Surgical Patient,” is designed to update the foot and ankle surgeon on prevalent medical problems, which affect the conditions and process surrounding any given patient’s surgery. The main focus is to emphasize the importance of surgeons approaching a surgi cal candidate as a physician, and not simply as a technician completing a task. Not only should the surgery be tailored to each patient, but the perioperative approach should also be individualized to each patient’s needs and medical requireme...

Temperature as a Causative Factor in Diabetic Foot Ulceration: A Call to Revisit Ulcer Pathomechanics.
CONCLUSIONS: Increased plantar temperatures in individuals with a history of ulcers may include acute temperature increases from plantar stresses, chronic inflammation from prolonged stresses, and impairment in temperature regulation from autonomic neuropathy. Diabetic foot temperatures, particularly in those with previous ulcers, may easily reach hazard thresholds indicated by prior pressure ulcer studies. The results necessitate further exploration of temperature in diabetic foot and how it may contribute to ulceration.

The ability to identify and guide evaluation of the patient with cardiac disease represents a necessary skill for success in surgery of the foot and ankle. Common risk factors, such as diabetes and peripheral arterial disease, are encountered in podiatric practice.
