Minimally Invasive Distal Metatarsal Osteotomy in the Treatment of Primary Metatarsalgia

Primary metatarsalgia is mainly due to a persistent lack of weight-bearing distribution along the forefoot or midfoot. If conservative medicine has failed, metatarsal osteotomy can be considered. A Minimally Invasive Distal Metatarsal Osteotomy therapy with Minimally Invasive Distal Metatarsal Osteotomy can produce positive results. In four patients, we performed distal metatarsal osteotomies from April 2009 to May 2010. In all patients, blood loss was minimal. In all patients, the length of hospital stay was 4 days. The average metatarsal index increased from 3. 125 to 2. 8 mm, and the average first/second inter-metatarsal angle on lateral X-ray decreased from 6° to 2°. The average American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons' rating increased from 66. 25 preoperatively to 96. 25 postoperatively. Conclusion: Minimally Invasive Distal Metatarsal Osteotomy without internal fixation is a viable alternative to open surgery in the care of recalcitrant metatarsalgia.

MRI utility in patients with non-traumatic metatarsalgia: A tertiary musculoskeletal center observational study

Aim: To determine the value of MRI of the forefoot in the treatment of patients with non-traumatic metatarsalgia and inconclusive initial radiographs in a patient with non-traumatic metatarsalgia. Patients and methods: The research included 125 patients with forefoot pains over a median age of 38. 8 years. Results: Morton neuroma in 20 cases, metatarsophalangeal instability syndromes in 15 cases, and sesamoid pathologies in nine cases of the stress-related group were the most common causes of foot pain in our series. The common reason of foot pain with infection-related forefoot pain was a foreign body transplant in ten patients.

Shortened First Metatarsal Bone and Newly Developed Second Metatarsalgia after Parallel-shaped Modified Scarf Osteotomy for Hallux Valgus Deformity

After PSMSO's deformity, we investigated the shortening of first metatarsal length and the analysis of first metatarsal length and second transfer metatarsalgia. On standard weight bearing radiographs of the foot, the hallux valgus angle, the intermetatarsal angle, the distal metatarsal articular angle, and the first metatarsal length determined by Davies and Saxby's technique were evaluated. The growth of second metatarsalgia, callosity, or tenderness under the second metatarsal head was investigated by an investigator. At the last follow-up, significant changes were made in the HVA, IMA, and DMAA, as well as the mean shorterening of the first metatarsal protrusion's mean relative length and mean median length. 9 cases with second transfer metatarsalgia were found in comparison to 31 cases without it, with a propensity score matching baseline results. Compared to others without transfer lesion, the group with transfer metatarsalgia showed significant reduction in first metatarsal length and length compared to those without transfer lesion. We suggest that shortening of first metatarsal bone length should be minimized within -2 mm and second metatarsal protrusion relative to first metatarsal protrusion keeping the metatarsal protrusion at a maximum of +1. 9 mm to prevent complications. If the shortening of first metatarsal was less than 4. 8 mm, the additional treatment for second metatarsal may have been considered.

Correlations between subjective treatment responses and plantar pressure parameters of metatarsal pad treatment in metatarsalgia patients: a prospective study

Plantar pressure tests may be a way to objectively assess pressure load under the MH. However, it is also unknown if the decrease in plantar pressure under the MH after MP therapy is related to subjective improvement. In metatarsalgia patients treated using MPs, this research seeks to investigate the correlations between subjective pain improvement and success rate, as well as the plantar pressure parameters. Pain scores of all subjects were obtained before and after 2 weeks of MP therapy. The maximal peak pressure and pressure-time integral under the second MH's second MH was reduced by the maximum peak pressure and pressure-time integral, as well as statistically raised subjective pain scores. After MP application, the increase in VAS scores was statistically correlated with the decline in VAS scores, a decrease in PTI and MPP values was found. Conclusion We found that after MP application, the successful decline in the PTI and MPP under the second MH was correlated to subjective pain relief.

A problem-based approach in musculoskeletal ultrasonography: central metatarsalgia

The foot's foot, as well as the ability to conduct real-time evaluations of the injury site are all significant benefits of U. S. as a method for evaluating the foot. Moreover, knowing the potential pain sources to investigate when a patient has a specific site of pain will improve the diagnostic quality of the United States and enable radiologists to practice in the United States more effectively and efficiently.
