1/27. The effect of hallux valgus correction on chronic plantar ulceration. A case report.

    Plantar pressure-measurement technology may provide the clinician with valuable objective information for monitoring the effects of therapeutic intervention on the foot. The use of this technology is described in the preoperative and postoperative assessment of a patient undergoing hallux valgus surgery for the treatment of a chronic neuropathic skin ulcer over the medioplantar aspect of her first metatarsophalangeal joint.

2/27. Proximal articular set angle. Radiographic versus intraoperative measurement.

    The authors conducted a study to investigate the variability of measurement of the proximal articular set angle. The proximal articular set angle as measured radiographically was compared with the proximal articular set angle as measured intraoperatively. Three groups of evaluators--attending physicians, residents, and third-year podiatric medical students--measured the proximal articular set angle radiographically. The mean measurement, standard deviation, and difference between the mean radiographic measurement and the intraoperative measurement were determined for each group. The authors concluded that the only accurate proximal articular set angle measurement is the intraoperative measurement.

3/27. An unusual case of a postoperative bone cyst.

    We describe an unusual case of a postoperative bone cyst resulting from a retained fragment of surgical glove. We highlight some of the problems associated with gloves and suggest ways of safeguarding against similar complications.

4/27. An unusual case of painful phantom-limb sensations during regional anesthesia.

    OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to describe a late-onset phantom-limb pain during a continuous analgesic popliteal nerve block after foot surgery and its alleviation and recurrence when stopping and resuming the local anesthetic infusion. CASE REPORT: A 29-year-old woman undergoing a left hallux valgus repair received a continuous popliteal sciatic nerve block for postoperative analgesia. Postoperatively, 6 hours after the commencement of a ropivacaine 0.2% infusion, she reported feelings of tingling, clenching pain, and missing-limb sensation below the ankle. The surgical site remained painless. sensation elicited by touch and propioception were normally perceived. Only sensations for pinprick and heat were impaired. The ropivacaine infusion was stopped, followed 2.5 hours later by the complete regression of any abnormal sensation. Meanwhile, pain at the surgical site was scored at 50 mm on a 100-mm visual analogic scale. As the infusion of ropivacaine was resumed, the abnormal sensations reappeared. The catheter was removed, and abnormal sensations again disappeared. The patient was discharged from hospital without further complications. CONCLUSIONS: This observation suggests that phantom-limb pain can be of late-onset and might occur during a continuous infusion of low-concentration local anesthetic responsible only for an analgesic block, as shown by the fact that only thermal and pinprick sensations, known to depend on Adelta-fibers and C-fibers, were altered. Therefore, this case contradicts the usual belief that a profound block is necessary to elicit phantom-limb pain.

5/27. Pseudoaneurysm after modified Lapidus arthrodesis: a case report.

    Pseudoaneurysms are a pulsatile swelling secondary to an arterial-wall defect. blood flows through the defect but is contained within the surrounding soft tissue. This article describes a rare form of an iatrogenic pseudoaneurysm of the perforating deep plantar artery 1 month after a modified Lapidus arthrodesis for hallux valgus. A presumptive diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm was confirmed by Doppler ultrasonography. The patient was treated with ligation of the artery and resection of the pseudoaneurysm and remained free of symptoms 1 year postoperatively.

6/27. Postoperative immobilisation orthosis for surgically corrected hallux valgus.

    A postoperative immobilisation orthosis was developed at the School of Physical Therapy and rehabilitation, Department of Orthotics and Prosthetics, and applied from the first postoperative day as an alternative device for ambulation of patients who have undergone hallux valgus surgery while maintaining the corrected position. The orthosis is constructed with polyethylene thermoplastic sheet of 3mm thickness and Velcro. During the ambulation period, there was no complication or complaint due to its application and the position of the great toe was maintained. The time of the orthotic application was six weeks. The orthosis has allowed patients to walk with full weight bearing from the postoperative first day without any complication or recurrence.

7/27. Intra-operative contamination of bone and cartilage during an Austin bunionectomy.

    During an Austin bunionectomy the potential exists for the head of the metatarsal to leave the sterile field and become contaminated. The authors present a case in which this occurred, with a 20-month follow-up. Possible options for decontamination are reviewed.

8/27. Basal osteotomy of the fifth metatarsal for the bunionette.

    A proximal basal chevron osteotomy was carried out on 20 patients (22 feet) with a Tailor's bunion deformity. The follow-up was of a minimum of 3 years for all patients. Direct surgery on the fifth metatarsophalangeal joint for bunionette treatment has often been unsuccessful and there have been recurrences due to metatarsophalangeal instability. Basal osteotomy is therefore preferred. The patients were satisfied. The intermetatarsal 4-5 angle was noticeably reduced. There were no postoperative complications and no recurrences. The fifth metatarsophalangeal joint was corrected despite the absence of direct surgery and remains stable. This operation is recommended for acute bunionettes with intractable plantar keratosis.

9/27. First metatarsal closing base wedge osteotomy using real-time fluoroscopy.

    A minimal incision surgery approach to metatarsus primus adductus is presented. The percutaneous closing base wedge osteotomy is performed using real-time intraoperative fluoroscopy. The advantages and disadvantages of this minimal incision surgical procedure are discussed.

10/27. Complications of foot surgery. Loss of operative correction. Poor selection of procedures.

    This article discusses the importance of proper preoperative evaluation of the patient both from a clinical and radiologic perspective and its effect on the ultimate success or failure of the surgical procedure. Four case studies are presented for clarification.
