Patterns of weight distribution under the metatarsal heads. (1/165)

The longitudinal arch between the heel and the forefoot and the transverse arch between the first and fifth metatarsal heads, absorb shock, energy and force. A device to measure plantar pressure was used in 66 normal healthy subjects and in 294 patients with various types of foot disorder. Only 22 (3%) of a total of 720 feet, had a dynamic metatarsal arch during the stance phase of walking, and all had known abnormality. Our findings show that there is no distal transverse metatarsal arch during the stance phase. This is important for the classification and description of disorders of the foot.  (+info)

Fractures of the proximal fifth metatarsal. (2/165)

Fractures of the proximal portion of the fifth metatarsal may be classified as avulsions of the tuberosity or fractures of the shaft within 1.5 cm of the tuberosity. Tuberosity avulsion fractures cause pain and tenderness at the base of the fifth metatarsal and follow forced inversion during plantar flexion of the foot and ankle. Local bruising, swelling and other injuries may be present. Nondisplaced tuberosity fractures are usually treated conservatively, but orthopedic referral is indicated for fractures that are comminuted or displaced, fractures that involve more than 30 percent of the cubo-metatarsal articulation surface and fractures with delayed union. Management and prognosis of both acute (Jones fracture) and stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal within 1.5 cm of the tuberosity depend on the type of fracture, based on Torg's classification. Type I fractures are generally treated conservatively with a nonweight-bearing short leg cast for six to eight weeks. Type II fractures may also be treated conservatively or may be managed surgically, depending on patient preference and other factors. All displaced fractures and type III fractures should be managed surgically. Although most fractures of the proximal portion of the fifth metatarsal respond well to appropriate management, delayed union, muscle atrophy and chronic pain may be long-term complications.  (+info)

Parathyroid hormone-related peptide (PTHrP)-dependent and -independent effects of transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) on endochondral bone formation. (3/165)

Previously, we showed that expression of a dominant-negative form of the transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) type II receptor in skeletal tissue resulted in increased hypertrophic differentiation in growth plate and articular chondrocytes, suggesting a role for TGF-beta in limiting terminal differentiation in vivo. Parathyroid hormone-related peptide (PTHrP) has also been demonstrated to regulate chondrocyte differentiation in vivo. Mice with targeted deletion of the PTHrP gene demonstrate increased endochondral bone formation, and misexpression of PTHrP in cartilage results in delayed bone formation due to slowed conversion of proliferative chondrocytes into hypertrophic chondrocytes. Since the development of skeletal elements requires the coordination of signals from several sources, this report tests the hypothesis that TGF-beta and PTHrP act in a common signal cascade to regulate endochondral bone formation. Mouse embryonic metatarsal bone rudiments grown in organ culture were used to demonstrate that TGF-beta inhibits several stages of endochondral bone formation, including chondrocyte proliferation, hypertrophic differentiation, and matrix mineralization. Treatment with TGF-beta1 also stimulated the expression of PTHrP mRNA. PTHrP added to cultures inhibited hypertrophic differentiation and matrix mineralization but did not affect cell proliferation. Furthermore, terminal differentiation was not inhibited by TGF-beta in metatarsal rudiments from PTHrP-null embryos; however, growth and matrix mineralization were still inhibited. The data support the model that TGF-beta acts upstream of PTHrP to regulate the rate of hypertrophic differentiation and suggest that TGF-beta has both PTHrP-dependent and PTHrP-independent effects on endochondral bone formation.  (+info)

FGF signaling inhibits chondrocyte proliferation and regulates bone development through the STAT-1 pathway. (4/165)

Several genetic forms of human dwarfism have been linked to activating mutations in FGF receptor 3, indicating that FGF signaling has a critical role in chondrocyte maturation and skeletal development. However, the mechanisms through which FGFs affect chondrocyte proliferation and differentiation remain poorly understood. We show here that activation of FGF signaling inhibits chondrocyte proliferation both in a rat chondrosarcoma (RCS) cell line and in primary murine chondrocytes. FGF treatment of RCS cells induces phosphorylation of STAT-1, its translocation to the nucleus, and an increase in the expression of the cell-cycle inhibitor p21WAF1/CIP1. We have used primary chondrocytes from STAT-1 knock-out mice to provide genetic evidence that STAT-1 function is required for the FGF mediated growth inhibition. Furthermore, FGF treatment of metatarsal rudiments from wild-type and STAT-1(-/-) murine embryos produces a drastic impairment of chondrocyte proliferation and bone development in wild-type, but not in STAT-1(-/-) rudiments. We propose that STAT-1 mediated down regulation of chondrocyte proliferation by FGF signaling is an homeostatic mechanism which ensures harmonious bone development and morphogenesis.  (+info)

Intermediate-term outcome of primary digit amputations in patients with diabetes mellitus who have forefoot sepsis requiring hospitalization and presumed adequate circulatory status. (5/165)

PURPOSE: The intermediate success and outcome of primary forefoot amputations in patients with diabetes mellitus who have sepsis limited to the forefoot and presumed adequate forefoot perfusion, as determined by means of noninvasive methods, was studied. METHODS: Cases of a university hospital-based practice from January 1984 to April 1998 were retrospectively reviewed. Patients included had diabetes mellitus with forefoot sepsis requiring immediate hospitalization for digit amputations who had adequate arterial circulation for healing based on noninvasive and clinical assessment: palpable pedal pulses (29%), "compressible" ankle pressure of 70 mm Hg or higher (48%), pulsatile metatarsal waveforms (67%), and/or toe pressure higher than 55 mm Hg (36%). All patients underwent a primary single- or multiple-digit amputation (through the interphalangeal joint, metatarsal head, or metatarsal shaft). Additional forefoot procedures (debridement, digit amputation) were performed during the follow-up period as needed for persistent or recurrent infection. The main outcome variables were recurrent or persistent foot infection (defined as requiring rehospitalization for antibiotics, wound care, and/or reoperation), the number of repeat operations and hospitalizations for salvage of limbs with recurrent or persistent infections, and time to complete forefoot healing or foot amputation. RESULTS: Ninety-two patients who had diabetes mellitus with 97 forefoot infections comprised the study group. Ninety-seven primary digit amputations (34 through interphalangeal joints, 28 through metatarsal heads, 35 through metatarsal shafts) were performed. The median length of hospital stay was 10 days. There were no operative deaths. The mean follow-up period was 21 months (range, 3 days to 105 months). The primary amputation healed (without persistent infection) in only 38 limbs (39%), at a mean time of 13 +/- 10 weeks. Twenty-three limbs (24%) had not healed the primary amputation without evidence of persistent infection at last follow-up (mean, 12 weeks). Infection persisted in 35 limbs (36%), and infection recurred in 15 of 38 (40%) healed limbs. An average of 1.0 reoperations (range, 0 to 3) and 1.6 rehospitalizations (range, 1 to 4) were involved in salvage attempts in these recurrent/persistent infections. Five persistent and five recurrent infections ultimately healed (mean, 53 weeks). Complete healing was achieved in only 33 of 97 limbs (34%). Twenty-two foot amputations (20 transtibial, two Syme's) were performed (mean, 49 +/- 74 weeks; 20 for persistent infection). Eighteen persistent/recurrent infections remained unhealed at the last follow-up examination (mean, 105 weeks). CONCLUSION: Patients with diabetes mellitus who have sepsis limited to the forefoot requiring acute hospitalization and undergoing primary digit amputations have a high incidence of intermediate-term, persistent, and recurrent infection, leading to a modest rate of limb loss, despite having apparently salvageable lesions and noninvasive evidence of presumed adequate forefoot perfusion.  (+info)

A densitometric analysis of the human first metatarsal bone. (6/165)

Bone responds to the stresses placed on it by remodeling its structure, which includes shape, trabecular distribution and density distribution. We studied 49 pairs of cadaveric human 1st metatarsal bones in an attempt to establish the pattern of density distribution and to correlate it with the biomechanical function of the bone. We found that the head is denser than the base, the dorsal portion of the whole metatarsal is denser than the plantar portion and the lateral portion of the whole metatarsal is denser than the medial aspect. The same pattern of density with respect to dorsal vs plantar and lateral vs medial was also seen in the head when it was examined alone. When we compared the 4 portions of the head with the same portion of the metatarsal as a whole we found that only the medial portion of the head was less dense than its respective portion of the whole metatarsal. All of these patterns of density distribution are consistent with respect to age, sex and laterality. We have also hypothesised as to the relationship between density distribution seen both in the whole metatarsal and in the metatarsal head and their biomechanical function in the gait cycle.  (+info)

Total dislocations of the navicular: are they ever isolated injuries? (7/165)

Isolated dislocations of the navicular are rare injuries; we present our experience of six cases in which the navicular was dislocated without fracture. All patients had complex injuries, with considerable disruption of the midfoot. Five patients had open reduction and stabilisation with Kirschner wires. One developed subluxation and deformity of the midfoot because of inadequate stabilisation of the lateral column, and there was one patient with ischaemic necrosis. We believe that the navicular cannot dislocate in isolation because of the rigid bony supports around it; there has to be significant disruption of both longitudinal columns of the foot. Most commonly, an abduction/pronation injury causes a midtarsal dislocation, and on spontaneous reduction the navicular may dislocate medially. This mechanism is similar to a perilunate dislocation. Stabilisation of both medial and lateral columns of the foot may sometimes be essential for isolated dislocations. In spite of our low incidence of ischaemic necrosis, there is always a likelihood of this complication.  (+info)

Autologous morsellised bone grafting restores uncontained femoral bone defects in knee arthroplasty. An in vivo study in horses. (8/165)

The properties of impacted morsellised bone graft (MBG) in revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were studied in 12 horses. The left hind metatarsophalangeal joint was replaced by a human TKA. The horses were then randomly divided into graft and control groups. In the graft group, a unicondylar, lateral uncontained defect was created in the third metatarsal bone and reconstructed using autologous MBG before cementing the TKA. In the control group, a cemented TKA was implanted without the bone resection and grafting procedure. After four to eight months, the animals were killed and a biomechanical loading test was performed with a cyclic load equivalent to the horse's body-weight to study mechanical stability. After removal of the prosthesis, the distal third metatarsal bone was studied radiologically, histologically and by quantitative and micro CT. Biomechanical testing showed that the differences in deformation between the graft and the control condyles were not significant for either elastic or time-dependent deformations. The differences in bone mineral density (BMD) between the graft and the control condyles were not significant. The BMD of the MBG was significantly lower than that in the other regions in the same limb. Micro CT showed a significant difference in the degree of anisotropy between the graft and host bone, even although the structure of the area of the MBG had trabecular orientation in the direction of the axial load. Histological analysis revealed that all the grafts were revascularised and completely incorporated into a new trabecular structure with few or no remnants of graft. Our study provides a basis for the clinical application of this technique with MBG in revision TKA.  (+info)

Breaks in the metatarsal bones may be either stress or traumatic fractures. Certain kinds of fractures of the metatarsal bones present unique challenges.. For example, sometimes a fracture of the first metatarsal bone (behind the big toe) can lead to arthritis. Since the big toe is used so frequently and bears more weight than other toes, arthritis in that area can make it painful to walk, bend, or even stand.. Another type of break, called a Jones fracture, occurs at the base of the fifth metatarsal bone (behind the little toe). It is often misdiagnosed as an ankle sprain, and misdiagnosis can have serious consequences since sprains and fractures require different treatments. Your foot and ankle surgeon is an expert in correctly identifying these conditions as well as other problems of the foot.. Treatment of metatarsal fractures depends on the type and extent of the fracture, and may include:. ...

Osteotomies of the lesser (second to fourth) metatarsals are often used to correct forefoot deformities. However, certain areas of the lesser metatarsals where arteries may be prone to damage during surgery, and the resulting nonunion and delayed union could cause serious problems. This study sought to identify the nutrient arteries of the lesser metatarsals and to determine how osteotomy could injure these vessels. Enhanced computed tomography scans of 21 ft (male, n = 10; female, n = 11; mean age 78.6 years at the time of death) were assessed. Twenty-one lower limbs in 21 cadaveric specimens were injected with barium via the external iliac artery, and the points at which the nutrient arteries entered the lesser metatarsals were identified on axial and coronal images. Each nutrient artery entered the lateral or medial plantar aspect of the lesser metatarsal in the middle third (just proximal to the middle point of the metatarsal) or proximal third obliquely from a distal direction.

Abstract  Classical ballet is an art form requiring extraordinary physical activity, characterised by rigorous training. These can lead to many overuse injuries arising from repetitive minor trauma. The purpose of this paper is to report our experience in the diagnosis and treatment of stress fractures at the base of the second and third metatarsal bones in young ballet dancers. We considered 150 trainee ballet dancers from the Ballet Schools of Teatro Alla Scala of Milan from 2005 to 2007. Nineteen of them presented with stress fractures of the base of the metatarsal bones. We treated 18 dancers with external shockwave therapy (ESWT) and one with pulsed electromagnetic fields (EMF) and low-intensity ultrasound (US); all patients were recommended rest. In all cases good results were obtained. The best approach to metatarsal stress fractures is to diagnose them early through clinical examination and then through X-ray and MRI. ESWT gave good results, with a relatively short time ...
Metatarsalgia, literally metatarsal pain and colloquially known as a stone bruise, is any painful foot condition affecting the metatarsal region of the foot. This is a common problem that can affect the joints and bones of the metatarsals. Metatarsalgia is most often localized to the first metatarsal head - the ball of the foot just behind the big toe. There are two small sesamoid bones under the first metatarsal head. The next most frequent site of metatarsal head pain is under the second metatarsal. This can be due to either too short a first metatarsal bone or to hypermobility of the first ray - metatarsal bone and medial cuneiform bone behind it - both of which result in excess pressure being transmitted into the second metatarsal head. ...
One of the main problems of Kirschner wire fixation of fifth metatarsal base fractures (in combination with a tension band wiring technique) seems to be hardware intolerance and several studies in athletes also report failure after isolated fixation with a screw only. These reports prompted us to look at new materials and a novel technique through fixation with an intramedullary screw combined with a high-resistance suture via the presented F.E.R.I. (Fifth metatarsal, Extra-portal, Rigid, Innovative) technique. This cadaveric study describes F.E.R.I. technique. On a cadaver, through two mini portals, a full reduction and solid internal fixation with an intramedullary screw and suture cerclage with Fiberwire of a fifth metatarsal base fracture is achieved. In this article, the cadaveric study and proposed surgical technique are explained and illustrated step by step. The presented internal fixation F.E.R.I. technique is indicated in acute proximal fractures, stress fractures or non-union of metatarsal 5

Minimally invasive distal metatarsal osteotomy (MIDMO) is to be indicated for all patients with angles of IMA |20° and HV |40°, but many authors doubt whether this procedure is capable of correcting all types of hallux valgus deformities. The aims of this study were to perform a geometric analysis of MIDMO indications and to show which preoperative radiological parameters are necessary to achieve sufficient contact between bone fragments and sufficient correction with this operative technique. A geometric mathematical model in AP and lateral radiographic plane was created based on preoperative measurements of the intermetatarsal angle (IMA), subcapital metatarsal width, medial bunion eminence, and metatarsal length. MIDMO was simulated with possible dorsal/plantar fragment displacement in order to assess postoperative contact between fragments (either 4-5 mm or half of the metatarsal width) and sufficient correction (postoperative IMA 8°). The metatarsal neck should be at least 8 mm wider from the

The five metatarsal bones are each a little different, but they share features of their anatomy in common. They have long slender shafts, the first being more stocky than the others. The shafts have a prismatic shape in cross-section. They are convex dorsally and concave on their plantar surfaces. The shafts expand into somewhat rectangular bases at their proximal ends and rounded heads at their distal ends. The first and fifth metatarsal bases are marked by the presence of tubercles placed in a proximolateral position. The fourth metatarsal bone is a little smaller in size than the third metatarsal ...
The tarsometatarsal joints (Lisfranc joints) are arthrodial joints in the foot. The tarsometatarsal joints involve the first, second and third cuneiform bones, the cuboid bone and the metatarsal bones. The eponym Lisfranc joint is named after 18th-19th century surgeon and gynecologist, Jacques Lisfranc de St. Martin. The bones entering into their formation are the first, second, and third cuneiforms, and the cuboid bone, which articulate with the bases of the metatarsal bones. The first metatarsal bone articulates with the first cuneiform; the second is deeply wedged in between the first and third cuneiforms articulating by its base with the second cuneiform; the third articulates with the third cuneiform; the fourth, with the cuboid and third cuneiform; and the fifth, with the cuboid. The bones are connected by dorsal, plantar, and interosseous ligaments. The dorsal ligaments are strong, flat bands. The first metatarsal is joined to the first cuneiform by a broad, thin band; the second has ...
Bunion A bunion, also known by its medical name hallux abductovalgus, is foot condition in which your big toe points toward your second toe, causing a bump or prominence to develop on the inside edge of your big toe and first metatarsal bone. Your first metatarsal bone is the long bone located directly behind your big toe, in your mid-foot. A bunion will cause your forefoot to appear wider because the base of your big toe now points away from your foot instead of pointing straight ahead.. Condition Information. The bump or prominence that characterizes this health problem may become reddened and enlarged in people who wear inappropriate footwear, or footwear that does not accommodate your deformed forefoot. Instead of your shoe being the shape of your foot-although it might be in some parts of your shoe-your bunion begins to shape the end of your shoe and an observable expansion develops in that location. This shoe molding is not without its consequences for your bunion, however. The pressure ...

The cuboid bone articulates with four bones: the calcaneus, lateral cuneiform, fourth metatarsal, and fifth metatarsal. Sometimes it articulates with a fifth bone, the navicular. It forms a large rectangular proximal surface that articulates with the calcaneus. Its distal surface, which is convex from medial to lateral, forms a smaller, medial, rectangular facet for articulation with the base of the fourth metatarsal bone. In addition, it forms a larger, lateral facet that articulates with the base of the fifth metatarsal bone. On its medial surface is a larger oval facet for articulation with the lateral cuneiform. Occasionally, just behind this larger facet is a small oval articular facet for the navicular bone ...

I guess my way of undertanding it is thinking about the dorsal part and how it connects to the 1st metatarsal bone in either the tibia or fibula side. And then relate it to those 2 bones. once i find that part (same for the hand) i can understand the placing of the foot and draw it. From the palm side it harder, as i don´t have these guidelines, so i try to use the basic shape of the palm, and then try to connect it to the metatarsal again and up to the fibula/tibia. I also have some general landmarks of were and how these key parts are placed: thumb side metatarsal bone is halfway from tip to toe, attachment of the fibula is more or less at 1/4 lenght of the foot, wich corresponds to the middle of the tibia. all of these is from side view, also the dorsal part of te metatarsal bones starts more or less at 1/2 of the lenghts of the feet. These are ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Mechanical characteristics of poly-L-lactic acid absorbable screws and stainless steel screws in basilar osteotomies of the first metatarsal. AU - Lavery, L. A.. AU - Higgins, K. R.. AU - Ashry, H. R.. AU - Athanasiou, K. A.. PY - 1994. Y1 - 1994. N2 - The purpose of this study is to evaluate the structural characteristics of 3.5-mm, stainless steel cortical screws and poly-L-lactic acid (PLA) absorbable screws in oblique closing base wedge osteotomies of the first metatarsal. Six pairs of frozen first metatarsal bones were excised from the specimen group. An oblique base wedge osteotomy was performed and fixated with either a 3.5-mm. stainless steel or PLA screw. Specimens were loaded to failure with the Bionix Material Testing System at a constant rate of 0.166 mm./sec. A Students t test for paired samples with a 95% confidence interval was used to measure differences in ultimate load, ultimate displacement, and structural stiffness. The following results (mean ± standard ...
Shakespeare was a man of great intelligence and wit. But while he was well- versed in the affairs of the heart, he was not as familiar with (or perhaps simply not as interested in) the noble foot. If he were, we might have gotten such plays as A Midsummer Nights Bunion, As You Like Your Arches, or possibly Much ado About Metatarsals. While the world may forever mourn the loss of these potential masterpieces, you can rest easy knowing that you can, because of modern science, (and the hard work of podiatric doctors), know more about your metatarsals than Shakespeare did.. Metatarsals are the elegant bones of the foot-world. Theyre longer and more slender than most other foot bones (the poor tarsals, for instance, are quite dumpy in comparison, and the toe bones are kind of stumpy) and gracefully fill the gap between your toes and the midfoot. In fact, the ball of your foot is pretty much made up of metatarsals. (Surely Shakespeare could have penned at least one ode to these charming ...
A second metatarsal shortening osteotomy cuts and shortens the second metatarsal, the long bone that connects the second toe to the midfoot. The goals are to decrease pain and help straighten out the second toe.
Dr Blakes comment: The base of the 5th metatarsal typically bears all of our weight as we lift our heal off the ground. The fracture area can be healed, but sensitive, for 6 months after the injury. Things that help reduce the sensitivity are taping to stabilize the area, inserts with off weight bearing padding to float the broken area, icing and contrasts bathes to daily reduce inflammation, and pain free massage to move the sensitive tissue out of the area and de-sensitize the local skin nerves. I am always afraid, unless you are doing these things, an agressive surgeon will look at the CT scan and do surgery. But, of course, there is no guarantee you will need it, but these are options. Also, if we feel that he bone is slow, get a Exogen bone stimulator for twice daily home use. ...
This is a Weil osteotomy of the 3rd metatarsal with screw fixation for a plantarflexed, painful metatarsal joint of the right foot. The patient had prior foot surgery on the 1st and 2nd metatarsals and had a relative plantarflexed 3rd metatarsal because of this. Conservative care did not ease pain, therefore surgery was elected. A 3.0 cannulated screw from Synthes was used for fixation. Dr. Patrick DeHeer, DPM.
Anyone who has symptoms of a fifth metatarsal fracture should see a foot and ankle surgeon as soon as possible for proper diagnosis and treatment. To arrive at a diagnosis, the surgeon will ask how the injury occurred or when the pain started. The foot will be examined, with the doctor gently pressing on different areas of the foot to determine where there is pain.. The surgeon will also order x-rays. Because a Jones fracture sometimes does not show up on initial x-rays, additional imaging studies may be needed.. Non-surgical Treatment ...
The medial plantar artery (internal plantar artery), much smaller than the lateral, passes forward along the medial side of the foot. It is at first situated above the Abductor hallucis, and then between it and the Flexor digitorum brevis, both of which it supplies. At the base of the first metatarsal bone, where it is much diminished in size, it passes along the medial border of the first toe, anastomosing with the first dorsal metatarsal artery. Small superficial digital branches accompany the digital branches of the medial plantar nerve and join the plantar metatarsal arteries of the first three spaces. ...
Tibialis anterior - As its name indicates, this muscle is found along the anterior surface of the tibia, specifically the anterior and lateral surface. The muscle is quite superficial and attaches proximally along a line from just inferior to the tibial plateau and medial to the tibial tuberosity down approximately two-thirds the length of the tibia. It attaches distally to the medial cuneiform and at the proximal and inferior surface at the base of the first metatarsal. The primary function of the muscle is dorsiflexion, but as the orientation of the muscle angles across the lower leg lateral to medial, it also assists in inversion of the foot at the ankle.. Peroneus longus - The peroneus longus, also known as the fibularis longus, has a proximal attachment that runs from just inferior to the fibular head and down approximately one-half the fibulas length. Its tendon is quite long and runs behind the lateral malleolus, attaching distally at the first metatarsal bone and on the lateral side of ...

A five-week-old American Quarter Horse colt was presented for evaluation of a left hindlimb deformity and lameness. Radiographs of the left hindlimb revealed a varus deformity with recurvatum originating in the mid-diaphysis of the third metatarsal bone. Surgical correction was undertaken by performing an osteotomy through the centre of rotation of angulation located within the mid-diaphysis of the third metatarsal bone, and a four-ring hinged circular external fixator construct was applied. Distraction of the osteotomy site was performed over an 11 day period. ...

Hey Sharon, how did you know Roy? He was an unbelievable person. I get great joy, and sadness, looking at him every time I open my blog. What a loss!! You definitely have a bad break, which takes a long time to heal conservatively, and yours will heal crooked. I would have that rebroken and fixed once the swelling is gone. With your athletic goals, I would not take a chance at poor healing. The 2nd metatarsal takes the most pressure at the start of push off before the weight is transferred to the big toe. You need this stable and strong. It will heal in 6-8 weeks with surgery and 6-8 months possibly without surgery, even if you get a bone stimulator to use. But, you will need to be off running alot longer than that. I hope this helps. Let me know any thoughts or what happens next. Good Luck. Rich ...
Background: Systemic sclerosis is a chronic disease of connective tissue accompanied with increased risk of foot ulcers. Biomechanical indexes (soft tissue thickness and compressibility) could affect the risk of this phenomenon.Objective: The aim of this study was assessment of heel pad and first metatarsal head soft tissue thickness and compressibility index in scleroderma patients with and without foot ulcers and comparison with healthy individuals.Methods: Heel pad thickness in standing(loaded) and lying(unloaded) positions was measured in 40 scleroderma patients by means of lateral foot radiography. Compressibility index was measured as the ratio of loaded to unloaded thickness. Also, soft tissue thickness of first metatarsal head was measured with ultrasound. Results were compared with 40 healthy controls of matched age and body mass index.Results: Among 40 scleroderma patients (36 females, 4 males) with mean age of 45 (±12) years and mean body mass index of 25.5 (±4) and mean disease duration of
The insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) controls somatic growth and exerts profound anabolic effects in most tissues, including the skeleton. In this study, I investigated interactions between the IGF-I system and several important pathways involved in growth and differentiation of cartilage and bone. In the first study, I explored the mechanisms responsible for transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta)induced inhibition of chondrocyte proliferation and hypertrophic differentiation in mouse metatarsal organ cultures. Specifically, I sought to determine the involvement and fibroblast growth factor (FGF), and IGF-I as mediators of TGF-betas effects. My results demonstrate that IGF-I increases chondrocyte proliferation and hypertrophic differentiation whereas FGF-2, decreases these parameters, in a perichondrium dependent manner. In addition, TGF-beta interacts with components of both the IGF and FGF systems but seems to exert most of its inhibitory effects by upregulating FGF signaling.To study ...

Bunionectomy In some very mild cases of bunion formation, surgery may only be required to remove the bump that makes up the bunion. This operation, called a bunionectomy, is performed through a small incision on the side of the foot immediately over the area of the bunion. Once the skin is opened the bump is removed using a special surgical saw or chisel. The bone is smoothed of all rough edges and the skin incision is closed with small stitches.. It is more likely that realignment of the big toe will also be necessary. The major decision that must be made is whether or not the metatarsal bone will need to be cut and realigned as well. The angle made between the first metatarsal and the second metatarsal is used to make this decision. The normal angle is around nine or ten degrees. If the angle is 13 degrees or more, the metatarsal will probably need to be cut and realigned.. When a surgeon cuts and repositions a bone, it is referred to as an osteotomy. There are two basic techniques used to ...
The medical term for foot pain, metatarsalgia, comes from the name of the bones that are in this part of the foot. It is a common forefoot disorder, which affects the ball of the foot and is marked by pain and inflammation in that area. Each foot has five metatarsal bones that run from the arch of your foot to the toe joints. Together it is called the metatarsal region. The main purpose of the metatarsals is to support the body weight when the person is walking, jumping, running, and specifically when the person is pushing up with the feet. The pain, burning or discomfort often occurs in the area where the second, third and fourth toes meet the ball of the foot, or more isolated at the first metatarsal head (near the big toe). It is not a disease but a symptom which is not generally serious. Read more about Metatarsalgia: Symptoms, Precautions, Care, Causes …. ...

Objectives: This study aims to evaluate the radiological and functional outcomes of hallux valgus patients treated with distal oblique metatarsal osteotomy technique.. Patients and methods: Twenty-six feet of 22 patients (4 males, 18 females; mean age 46.2±18 years; range, 16 to 70 years) who were diagnosed as hallux valgus between March 2013 and April 2016 and who underwent distal oblique metatarsal osteotomy were included in this retrospective study. American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society/Hallux Metatarsophalangeal-Interphalangeal Scale (AOFAS/HMIS) was used for clinical and functional evaluation. The hallux valgus angle (HVA), intermetatarsal angle (IMA), distal metatarsal articular angle (DMAA), sesamoid position, first metatarsal length and forefoot bone and soft tissue width were measured for radiological evaluation.. Results: The mean follow-up time was 33.1±9.8 months. The AOFAS/HMIS score increased significantly postoperatively (p=0.001). In the footwear section of the AOFAS/HMIS, ...
Among the different types of procedures used to correct HV deformities, nearly all will include an exostectomy, which is the shaving down of the bump on the inside of the first metatarsal - commonly referred to as the bunion. Simple removal of the bump is rarely successful except in the very elderly. Most commonly, it is performed in conjunction with a cut of the first metatarsal bone, which is called an osteotomy.. For milder bunion deformities with no other severe anatomic abnormalities, distal metatarsal osteotomies are performed, which is an osteotomy done at the end of the metatarsal. More severe bunion deformities may require a proximal osteotomy, which is an osteotomy done at the base of the first metatarsal or an Arthrodesis (fusion) of the first tarsometatarsal joint also known as the Lapidus procedure. Dr. Sanders commonly uses the Ludloff osteotomy when a proximal osteotomy of the metatarsal is needed.. The chevron osteotomy is one of the more common distal metatarsal osteotomies ...
Freibergs disease is a rare disorder of the foots metatarsal joints. The metatarsal bones run from the toes to the arch of the foot. With Freibergs disease, the joint surfaces disintegrate and/ or collapse and abnormal tissue forms in the joint. It can be the result of foot injury or trauma or the occurrence of longer-than-normal metatarsal bones. At its onset, the disease can cause pain or stiffness in the forefoot, which can become chronic; however, some cases are asymptomatic in the early stages. Although anyone can become susceptible to Freibergs disease, females are three times more likely to develop it than males, and it usually occurs during adolescence.. Freibergs disease may heal without treatment in its earlier stages. Usually, treatment involves resting the affected joint area to alleviate pressure and allow healing, orthotics, and cortisone. Joint surgery or replacement may be necessary in severe cases.. ...
The forefoot consists of your toe bones, called phalanges, and metatarsal bones, the long bones in your feet. Phalanges connect to metatarsals at the ball of the foot by joints called phalange metatarsal joints. Each toe has 3 phalange bones and 2 joints, while the big toe contains two phalange bones, two joints, and two tiny, round sesamoid bones that enable the toe to move up and down. Sesamoid bones are bones that develop inside of a tendon over a bony prominence.. The first metatarsal bone connected to the big toe is the shortest and thickest of the metatarsals and is the location for the attachment of several tendons. This bone is important for its role in propulsion and weight bearing.. ...

Stress fractures are tiny cracks in a bone caused by overuse and repetitive force. This differs to an acute fracture which occurs from a one time injury - such as a nasty ankle sprain resulting in an acute fracture of the ankle bone.. Stress fractures are more common in the weight-bearing bones of the lower leg and foot - in particular the tibia, calcaneus (heel bone) and the 2nd metatarsal.. The 2nd metatarsal is the most common metatarsal to get a stress fracture, because it is often the longest metatarsal which cops most of the stress during toe off.. ...

The cuboid bone is placed on the lateral side of the foot, in front of the calcaneus, and behind the fourth and fifth metatarsal bones. It is of a pyramidal shape, its base being directed medialward.. Surfaces.-The dorsal surface, directed upward and lateralward, is rough, for the attachment of ligaments. The plantar surface presents in front a deep groove, theperoneal sulcus, which runs obliquely forward and medialward; it lodges the tendon of the Peronæus longus, and is bounded behind by a prominent ridge, to which the long plantar ligament is attached. The ridge ends laterally in an eminence, the tuberosity, the surface of which presents an oval facet; on this facet glides the sesamoid bone or cartilage frequently found in the tendon of the Peronæus longus. The surface of bone behind the groove is rough, for the attachment of the plantar calcaneocuboid ligament, a few fibers of the Flexor hallucis brevis, and a fasciculus from the tendon of the Tibialis posterior. The lateral surface ...
Surgery: The surgical treatment of hallux abducto valgus will vary depending upon the severity of the deformity and what the patients expectations and goals happen to be. X-rays are important in determining which surgical procedure is to be performed. There are over 30 different types of bunion procedures that can be performed. The type of surgery chosen will depend on the causes and deforming factors that are present. The surgical recommendation should also be taken into consideration along with the patients age, body type, medical history, activity level or occupational requirements. Most surgical options focus on repositioning the bones and realigning the joint. By repositioning the metatarsal phalangeal joint, the prominence or bump of bone will be eliminated. This usually relieves any ongoing joint pain. A cut is made in the bone, the bone is shifted, and then held in place either with a pin, wire, or screw. The position of the cuts in the first metatarsal bone varies depending on the ...
Discussion. Pantoea agglomerans, previously known as Enterobacter agglomerans, is a Gram-negative bacterium from the Enterobacteriaceae family. It is mainly a plant epiphyte commonly found on plant material and in soil, but it has been reported as an opportunistic pathogen in humans.2,3 Destructive bone lesions after direct penetrating injuries have been described. It is an uncommon cause, with only 31 cases found in the literature (Pantoea was however not isolated in all 31 cases).4,5 Durr et al. published a case report of a destructive lesion in the first metatarsal bone. It was thought to be a tumour, but on biopsy a 2 cm thorn was found within the lesion. The cortex of the metatarsal was destroyed and replaced with granulation tissue. Histology revealed chronic granulation and Pantoea agglomerans was isolated in cultures.4. Further reports of ten cases of osteomyelitis were found: one case after an open fracture, eight cases associated with penetrating injuries without fractures and one case ...
A two-day-old heifer calf presented with a non-weight bearing right hindlimb lameness following a traumatic event. A closed, complete, overriding, displaced fracture of the distal right metatarsal diaphysis was diagnosed and closed reduction and cast placement was elected as treatment. The calf was sedated intravenously with a combination of diazepam and ketamine. With the calf in lateral recumbency, sciatic and femoral nerve blocks were performed using procaine to provide analgesia and muscle relaxation for the procedure. The procedure was performed with the patient sedated and no further anaesthetics or analgesics were needed. This report is the first describing the use of sciatic and femoral nerve blocks as analgesia for a young calf. The success of the technique allowed a decrease in the dosage of other systemic drugs. This is an important factor in decreasing potential complications related to anaesthesia in these patients. ...
PROPOSE: This study was retrospectively to review the surgical results for moderate to severe hallux valgus corrected with a modified McBride procedure and proximal metatarsal crescentic osteotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between August 1997 and August 2001, 15 patients with 22 bunion underwent surgical correction and were followed for an average 29.3 months (range, 18 to 53 months). Clinical results were evaluated with AOFAS clinical rating system for hallux and radiological measurements were done preoperatively and at a minimum of 12 months postoperatively. RESULTS: The average AOFAS clinical rating score improved from 47.5 to 86.0. Union of the osteotomy site occurred at 9.5 weeks except one delayed union. The hallux valgus angle improved an from 36.5 degrees to 15.7 degrees and the intermetatarsal angle improved from 17.4 degrees to 8.6 degrees on average. Dorsiflexion of the first metatarsal at the osteotomy site was present in three (13.6%) with average 4 degrees. Complications were two ...
Bunions. X-ray of a section through the feet of an 82-year-old patient with bunions affected both big toes. A bunion (hallux vulgas) is a swelling of the joint between the big toe and the first metatarsal bone. It causes the base of the big toe to project outwards and the tip of it to point inwards. Bunions are caused by the rubbing of ill-fitting shoes. The deformity can be corrected surgically. Here, it has almost caused total dislocation of the big toe joint. - Stock Image C023/9741
A bunion is one of the common foot conditions we suffer. According to statistics, there are 60% of adults who have a foot disorder. It was found that 36% of people older than 65 have bunions. For those who dont know, a bunion is a bony and painful hump located at the base of the big toe.. It is quite common for people to have a big toe that might slightly lean toward your other toes. With the passage of time, the bone of the big toe pushes the first metatarsal bone. This causes a bunion.. Wondering why it is painful? It is formed at the joint. So, when you walk this toe bends, but in case of a bunion, all the weight of your body rests on it. this often hurts when you walk; to make matters worse, the shoe will rub against it, which can cause bunion pain Manly Vale..

Tailors bunion, also called a bunionette, is a prominence of the fifth metatarsal bone at the base of the little toe. The metatarsals are the five long bones of the foot. The prominence that characterizes a tailors bunion occurs at the metatarsal head, located at the far end of the bone where it meets the toe. Tailors bunions are not as common as bunions, which occur on the inside of the foot, but they are similar in symptoms and causes.. Why is it called a tailors bunion? The deformity received its name centuries ago, when tailors sat cross-legged all day with the outside edge of their feet rubbing on the ground. This constant rubbing led to a painful bump at the base of the little toe.. Causes ...
Broken Foot Prognosis The outlook for a foot fracture depends on what bone of the foot were fractured, and the severe nature of the injury. Easiest fractures can heal well in 6 to 8 weeks without surgery . Severe fractures may require surgery. Toe fractures are normal and generally heal well with little if any therapy. Although the bones may take 6 to 8 weeks to heal, pain usually improves very much earlier. Rarely, very serious fractures, especially of the big toe, may necessitate a cast or surgery. Metatarsal fractures heal well usually. The first metatarsal occasionally requires a cast or surgery and an extended period on crutches, however the middle three metatarsals can usually end up being treated with a rigid flat-bottom shoe and partial fat bearing.

115,000. In a medical malpractice lawsuit filed in Oakland County Circuit Court, plaintiff Alice Collins sought economic and non-economic damages from defendants Harvey M. Lefkowitz, D.P.M., P.C. (d/b/a Michigan Foot and Ankle, P.C.), and Dr. Anthony Giordano following bunion surgery.. On July 6, 2006, Giordano, who was an independent contractor in Lefkowitzs employ at the time, performed a lapidus bunionectomy on Collins at Southeast Michigan Surgical Hospital. During the procedure, Giordano cut into an adjacent bone on the patients left foot with a saw.. The cutting of this bone, which was the second metatarsal base, resulted in a fracture of a portion of the second toe. By Sept. 12, Collins was diagnosed with delayed union of the fracture of the second metatarsal base, and also there was bone loss. At post-operative visits, she complained of continuing severe pain in her left foot to Giordano.. Such trauma to the bone of the second metatarsal base resulted in Collins developing Reflex ...

A stress fracture develops gradually until the bone breaks so much that it starts hurting.. Dr Vahur Metsna, an orthopaedist at East-Tallinn Central Hospital, says that a stress fracture has a typical clinical course and that this is usually the basis for diagnosis. He says that stress fractures are treated by resting the affected extremity, usually for four to eight weeks, bus sometimes for as long as three to four months. If necessary, a cast is used to keep the fractured bone in place, or the patient has to wear a brace.. Treatment depends on the location of the fracture - it may require the patient not to put any weight on their foot, he explains. In the case of a Jones fracture, which is common among athletes and whereby the fracture occurs at the base of the fifth metatarsal bone, the foot must be kept in a full resting position.. Surgery may sometimes be necessary, if the ends of the fracture are sclerotic. Metsna admits that patients should not expect the fracture to heal itself ...
A neuroma is the swelling of nerve that is a result of a compression or trauma. They are often described as nerve tumors. However, they are not in the purest sense a tumor. They are a swelling within the nerve that may result in permanent nerve damage. The most common site for a neuroma is on the ball of the foot. The most common cause of neuroma in ball of the foot is the abnormal movement of the long bones behind the toes called metatarsal bones. A small nerve passes between the spaces of the metatarsals. At the base of the toes, the nerves split forming a Y and enter the toes. It is in this area the nerve gets pinched and swells, forming the neuroma. Burning pain, tingling, and numbness in one or two of the toes is a common symptom. Sometimes this pain can become so severe, it can bring tears to a patients eyes. Removing the shoe and rubbing the ball of the foot helps to ease the pain. As the nerve swells, it can be felt as a popping sensation when walking. Pain is intermittent and is ...
A bunion is a bony bump. When the distance between the first and second metatarsal bones of the foot is greater than normal, the big toe may turn toward the other toes. A mild bunion may then form causing foot pain and swelling. Bunions are most often found near the joint at the base of the big toe. Bunions tend to run in families. They may cause pain, swelling, and skin irritation.

seven-day study involved two groups of hypertensive rats that received a daily treatment of acupuncture.. The first group received a needle between the first and second metatarsal bones at the top of the foot, which stimulated the tai chong - an access point commonly used for stress, lower back pain and high blood pressure in acupuncture done on humans.. The other group received a needle insertion as well, but the insertion was not in one of the specific points suggested by acupuncture treatment to lower blood pressure.. While the data revealed the first group had significantly lower blood pressure, the researchers also found that the part of the brain that regulates blood pressure contained an increase of enzyme antioxidants after treatment.. The enzymes involved in processes, Zhou said, can prevent damage to the blood vessel walls caused by the free radicals, which may lead to regulating blood pressure of hypertension.. According to the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) ...

PURPOSE: Vibration therapy has been shown to improve fracture healing. In this study, we investigated the effects of continuous or different intermittent vibration regimens on fracture healing in sheep models on the basis of radiographs, mechanical, and biochemical testing. METHODS: The 63 right-hind metatarsals from 63 sheep (12-month-old) were osteotomized; followed by surgical fixation with a steel plate. Two weeks after the surgery, the sheep with right-hind metatarsal fractures were randomly divided into seven groups (n=9/group): control (no vibration treated), continuous vibration (CV), one, three, five, seven and 14-day intermittent vibration (named IV-1, -3, -5, -7, and -14, respectively) groups, which represented a cycle of the successive n-day vibration and successive n-day break ...

  • If the stress of repetitive loads overwhelm the ability of the bone to repair itself, small cracks can begin to occur within the bone structure. (
  • When bone is under stress, it undergoes microscopic damage. (
  • Stress fractures, however, are caused by repetitive forces placed upon a bone over time that are greater than the bone can bear, and overwhelm the ability of the bone to repair itself in time to absorb the next force. (
