1/2. Charcot osteoarthropathy in a case of klippel-trenaunay-weber syndrome.

    A case of a patient with klippel-trenaunay-weber syndrome (KTW) with Charcot osteoarthropathy is presented. A medline literature review was performed using the words Klippel-Trenaunay, orthopaedic, ankle, foot, and Charcot joint. Seven articles reported orthopaedic manifestations of KTW. They included limb hypertrophy and atrophy, limb-length discrepancies, digital anomalies, ulcerations, and spine and hip abnormalities, but no mention of Charcot osteoarthropathy. After many years of chronic nonhealing ulcers and repeated incision and drainage procedures the patient developed Charcot osteoarthropathy of the ankle without evidence of osteomyelitis or peripheral neuropathy but with severe deformity that required transtibial amputation.

2/2. Subtalar and talonavicular joint dislocation as a presentation of diabetic neuropathic arthropathy with salvage by triple arthrodesis.

    Ligamentous laxity is a common component of diabetic neuropathic osteoarthropathy. In some cases soft tissue instability leads to spontaneous dislocations or subluxations without any bone destruction. This leads to marked instability in gait and chronic ulcerations. A case report is presented in which talonavicular and subtalar joint dislocation occurred with Charcot osteoarthropathy. The conservative and surgical management including salvage by triple arthrodesis is discussed with follow-up care.
