  • Initial Report on the Use of In-Office Cone Beam Computed Tomography for
           Early Diagnosis of Osteomyelitis in Diabetic Patients.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: In this report, we describe our initial experience with a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)-based device, which may serve as an accurate and readily available tool for early diagnosis of osteomyelitis in a patient with diabetes. Two patients with infected diabetic foot ulcers were evaluated for osteomyelitis using radiography and CBCT. Positive imaging findings were confirmed by bone biopsy. In both patients, CBCT captured early osteolytic changes that were not apparent on radiographs, leading to early surgical intervention and successful treatment. The CBCT was helpful in facilitating detection and early clinical intervention for osteomyelitis in two diabetic patients with foot ulcers. These results are encouraging and warrant future evaluation. PMID: 27031549 [PubMed - as supplied...

  • Surgical Management of Irreducible Dislocation of the Peroneus Longus
           Tendon A Case Report.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Chinzei N, Kanzaki N, Fujishiro T, Hayashi S, Hashimoto S, Kuroda R, Kurosaka M Peroneal tendon dislocation is often overlooked because the mechanism of injury is similar to that of lateral ligament sprains and the frequency of the disease is low. Therefore, it is difficult to treat peroneal tendon dislocation when diagnosed in the chronic state. Furthermore, because irreducible peroneal tendon dislocation has multiple causes, treatment is much harder. Herein, we present a rare case of irreducible dislocation caused by a complex pathogenesis. Surgical treatment yielded good results. Orthopedic surgeons should be aware of this issue and consider it in the preoperative simulation.

  • DermACELL: Human Acellular Dermal Matrix Allograft A Case Report.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Cole WE Diabetes often causes ulcers on the feet of diabetic patients. A 56-year-old, insulin-dependent, diabetic woman presented to the wound care center with a Wagner grade 3 ulcer of the right heel. She reported a 3-week history of ulceration with moderate drainage and odor and had a history of ulceration and osteomyelitis in the contralateral limb. Rigorous wound care, including hospitalization; surgical incision and drainage; intravenous antibiotic drug therapy; vacuum-assisted therapy; and a new room temperature, sterile, human acellular dermal matrix graft were used to heal the wound, save her limb, and restore her activities of daily living. This case presentation involves alternative treatment of a diabetic foot ulcer with this new acellular dermal matrix...

  • Perniosis A Case Report with Literature Review.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Baker JS, Miranpuri S Perniosis, or chilblain, is an uncommon condition of the acral skin. Presented herein is a case report of a 65-year-old otherwise healthy construction worker with perniosis. He had a 3-year history of lesions on the fingers and toes brought on by cold, damp weather. On initial presentation, a biopsy sample was taken of a hallux lesion, and the patient was given a trial course of nifedipine therapy. Follow-up at 3 weeks showed complete relief of symptoms with nifedipine use, and the biopsy results confirmed the diagnosis. The etiology and pathogenesis of perniosis are reviewed. Differential diagnoses and treatment options are reviewed and discussed. Nifedipine therapy has been shown to be effective and should be considered the standard of care...

  • Eccrine Syringofibroadenomatosis of the Soles.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Polat M, Üstün H Eccrine syringofibroadenoma is a rare adnexal tumor with acrosyringeal differentiation. It was first described by Mascaro in 1963. Its clinical presentation varies from a solitary nodule, keratotic papule, verrucous plaque, or palmoplantar keratoderma to multiple lesions with linear or diffuse distributions. Age at onset ranges from 16 to 80 years. Lesion distribution is wide and includes the face, back, abdomen, buttocks, extremities, and, rarely, nails. There are five subtypes of eccrine syringofibroadenoma. Histologically, eccrine syringofibroadenoma, independent of the subtype, is characterized by anastomosing cords of acrosyringeal cells forming ductal structures in a fibrovascular stroma and attached to the undersurface of the epidermis in...

  • Necrotizing Fasciitis of the Lower Extremity Caused by Serratia marcescens
           A Case Report.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Heigh EG, Maletta-Bailey A, Haight J, Landis GS Necrotizing fasciitis is a rare and potentially fatal infection, with mortality of up to 30%. This case report describes a patient recovering from a laryngectomy for laryngeal squamous cell cancer who developed nosocomial necrotizing fasciitis of the lower extremity due to Serratia marcescens . Only eight cases of necrotizing fasciitis exclusive to the lower extremity due to S marcescens have been previously reported. Patients with S marcescens necrotizing fasciitis of the lower extremity often have multiple comorbidities, are frequently immunosuppressed, and have a strikingly high mortality rate.

  • Diagnostic Ultrasound of the Soleal Sling.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Rader AJ, Cancelliere P, Kelly T The soleal sling may be a site of tibial nerve entrapment. Objective diagnosis of this syndrome is difficult with current nerve conduction study techniques, magnetic resonance imaging, and neurosensory testing. Diagnostic ultrasound is ideally suited to visualize the tibial nerve statically and dynamically as it enters the soleal sling, thus making an objective diagnosis of soleal sling impingement much easier.

  • Giant Glomus Tumor and Neuroma in the Fifth Ray A Case Report.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: We present the case of a patient with a glomus tumor that was atypical because of its large size and histologic characteristics. It was located in the dorsal-distal zone of the fifth ray of the left foot and was associated with a neuroma under the fifth metatarsal head. Although the pain (of a neurologic type) was attributed to the neuroma, the unknown nature and evolution of the dorsal lesion (glomus tumor) made surgical treatment necessary. Surgery, together with compensating treatment of the functional alterations of the patient's feet (pronation of the subastragalar joint, supination of the forefoot, and fifth metatarsal overload syndrome), resolved the case.

  • Diagnosis and Management of Onychomycosis Perspectives from a Joint
           Podiatric Medicine-Dermatology Roundtable.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Vlahovic TC, Joseph WS, Scher RK, Tosti A, Plasencia J, Pariser DM, Markinson BC Onychomycosis is a fungal infection, and, as such, one of the goals of treatment should be eradication of the infective agent. Despite this, in contrast to dermatologists, many podiatric physicians do not include antifungals in their onychomycosis treatment plans. Before initiating treatment, confirmation of mycologic status via laboratory testing (eg, microscopy with potassium hydroxide preparation, histopathology with periodic acid-Schiff staining, fungal culture, and polymerase chain reaction) is important; however, more podiatric physicians rely solely on clinical signs than do dermatologists. These dissimilarities may be due, in part, to differences between specialties in trainin...

  • Extrapleural Solitary Fibrous Tumor of the Foot A Case Report.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Kean CA, Moore BR, Nettles AM, Bui RP Solitary fibrous tumors are uncommon mesenchymal neoplasms that were initially described as pleural tumors, but in recent years, numerous extrapleural sites have been reported. A solitary fibrous tumor is characterized as a circumscribed, painless mass with a patternless growth pattern, positive CD34 spindle-shaped cells, bcl-2, and dense keloidal collagen with areas of hypercellularity and hypocellularity. This case report describes a 55-year-old male veteran who presented with a rare manifestation of an extrapleural solitary fibrous tumor of the medial right hallux. Microscopic and immunohistochemical findings were consistent with the previously documented characteristics of solitary fibrous tumors. Complete surgical excisio...

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Ray A, Malin D, Nicolau DP, Wiskirchen DE Although many antimicrobial agents display good in vitro activity against the pathogens frequently implicated in diabetic foot infections, effective treatment can be complicated by reduced tissue penetration in this population secondary to peripheral arterial disease and emerging antimicrobial resistance, which can result in clinical failure. Improved characterization of antibiotic tissue pharmacokinetics and penetration ratios in diabetic foot infections is needed. Microdialysis offers advantages over the skin blister and tissue homogenate studies historically used to define antibiotic penetration in skin and soft-tissue infections by defining antibiotic penetration into the interstitial fluid over the entire concentratio...

The lateral view is more accurate than the anteroposterior view for measuring the first metatarsal. Owing to variance of relative metatarsal length on the two views, conclusions regarding a relatively short or long first metatarsal compared with the second metatarsal cannot be drawn.

           Rural and Urban Children.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that the type of foot arch is influenced by parameters such as age, sex, and obesity level. High-arched foot seemed to be the most frequent pathologic abnormality in the examined group, and flatfoot, which was predominant in boys and obese children, diminished with age. High-arched foot was a more common MLA type than flatfoot regardless of obesity level assessed on the basis of body mass index and sum of three skinfolds.

  • Azole Resistance in Dermatophytes: Prevalence and Mechanism of Action.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Ghannoum M Azole antifungal agents (eg, fluconazole and itraconazole) have been widely used to treat superficial fungal infections caused by dermatophytes and, unlike the allylamines (such as terbinafine and naftifine), have been associated with resistance development. Although many published manuscripts describe resistance to azoles among yeast and molds, reports describing resistance of dermatophytes are starting to appear. In this review, I discuss the mode of action of azole antifungals and mechanisms underlying their resistance compared with the allylamine class of compounds. Data from published and original studies were compared and summarized, and their clinical implications are discussed. In contrast to the cidal allylamines, static drugs such as azoles pe...

  • Diagnosis and Management of Onychomycosis: Perspectives from a Joint
           Podiatry-Dermatology Roundtable.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Markinson BC, Vlahovic TC, Joseph WS, Scher RK, Tosti A, Plasencia J, Pariser DM Onychomycosis is a fungal infection, and, as such, one of the goals of treatment should be eradication of the infective agent. Despite this, in contrast to dermatologists, many podiatric physicians do not include antifungals in their onychomycosis treatment plans. Before initiating treatment, confirmation of mycologic status via laboratory testing (eg, microscopy with potassium hydroxide preparation, histopathology with periodic acid-Schiff staining, fungal culture, and polymerase chain reaction) is important; however, more podiatric physicians rely solely on clinical signs than do dermatologists. These dissimilarities may be due, in part, to differences between specialties in trainin...

  • Effect of Vibram FiveFingers Minimalist Shoes on the Abductor Hallucis
           Muscle.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrated that transitioning runners over a 6-month period using the 10% philosophy for increasing mileage significantly increases intrinsic muscle thickness of the abductor hallucis in all of the groups wearing the Vibram FiveFingers. The abductor hallucis muscle aids in support of the medial longitudinal arch, and an increase in this muscle thickness may help reduce running-related injuries thought to arise from arch weakness.

  • Assessment and Diagnosis of Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction: Do We
           Share the Same Opinions and Beliefs'
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: This study highlights what may have been suspected previously but that has never been investigated in a structured manner. One approach to the assessment and diagnosis of posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is not necessarily the best, and depending on the clinical teams, different guidance may be required to ensure that patients are receiving the most appropriate and best care.

  • A Randomized Controlled Trial of Custom Foot Orthoses for the Treatment of
           Plantar Heel Pain: A Return to Spontaneous Physical Activity.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: The CFO group demonstrated 5.6-fold greater improvements in spontaneous physical activity versus the PFO and sham groups. All three groups improved in morning pain after treatment that included standardized athletic shoes, stretching, and ice. The CFO changes may have been moderated by decreased stretching and ice use after 3 months. These findings suggest that more objective measures, such as spontaneous physical activity improvement, may be more sensitive and specific for detecting improved weightbearing function than traditional clinical outcome measures, such as pain and disease-specific quality of life.

  • Atypical Localization of Enchondroma in the Calcaneus.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Kaymaz B, Komurcu E, Golge UH, Goksel F, Resorlu M, Kılınç N A 53-year-old man presented to the orthopedic outpatient clinic with pain and swelling in the right heel without any trauma. On physical examination and radiologic assessment, a lesion with calcification and peripheral sclerosis was detected in the medullary cavity of the calcaneus, and computed tomographic images revealed cortical thinning adjacent to the lesion. Magnetic resonance images showed a 23 × 19-mm lesion. Tru-Cut biopsy, performed to clarify the diagnosis, revealed an enchondroma. As a definitive treatment, curettage of the lesion and grafting of the cavity was performed. Although enchondromas are common pathologic abnormalities of the skeleton and are usually asymptomatic, atypical local...

  • Infection Prevention and Control in the Podiatric Medical Setting:
           Challenges to Providing Consistently Safe Care.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Wise ME, Bancroft E, Clement EJ, Hathaway S, High P, Kim M, Lutterloh E, Perz JF, Sehulster LM, Tyson C, White-Comstock MB, Montana B Unsafe practices are an underestimated contributor to the disease burden of bloodborne viruses. Outbreaks associated with failures in basic infection prevention have been identified in nonhospital settings with increased frequency in the United States during the past 15 years, representing an alarming trend and indicating that the challenge of providing consistently safe care is not always met. As has been the case with most medical specialties, there have been public health investigations by state and local health departments, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have identified some instances of unsafe practices that...

  • Credentialing Guidelines for Doctors of Podiatric Medicine Supervising
           Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: A Position Paper.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Rogers LC, Stavosky JW, Capotorto J, DellaCorte MP, Millington JT Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a useful tool for many conditions within the scope of practice of a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM). More wound-care clinics are adding HBOT as a service line. The increasing prevalence of DPMs operating inside of these wound-care clinics has raised questions about the licensure and privileging of DPMs to supervise HBOT. This document reviews the safety of outpatient HBOT and provides guidelines for hospitals to credential DPMs to supervise treatments.

  • Isolation of Dermatophytes (and Other Fungi) from Human Nail and Skin Dust
           Produced by Podiatric Medical Treatments in Australia.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: Conclusions: The most common dermatophytes isolated were from the Trichophyton mentagrophytes/interdigitale complexes. Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton tonsurans, Trichophyton soudanense, and Epidermophyton floccosum were also isolated. An unidentified group of dermatophytes was also present. The three most common genera of nondermatophyte molds were Aspergillus, Penicillium, and Scopulariopsis, all of which have been implicated in onychomycosis and more general disease. The presence of viable fungal pathogens in the dust could potentially pose a health problem to podiatric physicians.

  • Occupational stress among australian podiatrists in general and geriatric
           practice: a pilot study.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS:Working with the elderly is a significant part of podiatry practice and as such needs to be seen with more positive attitude by many practitioners. The development of geriatric practice as a speciality within the profession may help to raise the value of working with the elderly. This has implications for preparing podiatrists for practice with the geriatric population along with the need for strategies to avoid or minimise these work stressors.
