  • Foot Problems in Older Adults: Associations with Incident Falls, Frailty
           Syndrome and Sensor-Derived Gait, Balance, and Physical Activity Measures.
           
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Foot problems were associated with frailty level and decreased motor performance and PA. Wearable technology is a practical way to screen for deterioration in gait, balance, and PA that may be associated with foot problems. Routine assessment and management of foot problems could promote earlier intervention to retain motor performance and manage fear of falling among older adults, which may ultimately improve healthy aging and reduce risk of frailty.

  • Partnerships Between Podiatrists and Vascular Surgeons in Building
           Effective Wound Care Centers.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Chandra V, Glebova N, Salvo NL, Wu T This practice memo, a collaborative effort between the Young Physicians' Program of the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) and the Young Surgeons Committee of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS), is intended to aid podiatrists and vascular surgeons in the early years of their respective careers, especially those involved in the care of patients with chronic wounds. During these formative years, learning how to successfully establish an inter-professional partnership is crucial in order to provide the best possible care to this important patient population.

  • An Imaged-Based Three-Dimensional Study of First Metatarsal Protrusion
           Distance in Women With and Without Hallux Valgus.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: The reconstructed image datasets captured the 3D spatial relationship of the anatomy. Measurements of MPD were reliable. The first ray measured 2 mm shorter than the second ray in both the hallux valgus and control groups. Though unexpected, this result may prompt future study of the pathokinematics associated with hallux valgus that include the quantification of metatarsal protrusion with 3D methods, instead of relying solely on single plane radiograph reports.

  • Physical and mechanical therapies for lower limb problems in juvenile
           idiopathic arthritis: a systematic review with meta- analysis.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: Conclusions: There is a paucity of research evaluating physical and mechanical therapies for lower limb problems in JIA. No physical therapy has been evaluated in RCT and mechanical therapy evaluation is limited to foot orthoses and shoe inserts for foot and ankle pain. The existing research is hampered by small sample sizes. Until further research is conducted, the effectiveness of mechanical and physical therapies for lower limb problems in JIA remains unclear.

  • Case Study: Solitary benign schwannoma of the foot presenting clinically
           as a ganglion cyst.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Ly P An unusual case of solitary benign schwannoma of the foot is presented. Clinical exam, MRI, and intra operative findings all confirm suspicion of a ganglion cyst. After attempt aspiration failed to produce any aspirate, excisional biopsy was performed. Pathology report confirms schwannoma with H&E stain, and subsequently reaffirmed with positive S-100 protein stain. Even though schwannoma of the foot had been reported in literature, this was an unusual case as the lesion was presented as a superficial, ganglion cyst like lesion on the bottom of the foot.

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: We present the unique case of a 71-year-old female with a nonraised hyperpigmented lesion isolated to the right heel. Confusion surrounded the clinical presentation of this dermatologic lesion, and many physicians postulated several differential diagnoses. The purpose of this case report is to bring further awareness to this rare dermatologic variant of adenoid cystic carcinoma, which has been rarely reported in the literature.

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: The results of this investigation detail the considerable variety of clinical outcome measurement tools utilized by authors in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association and The Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery®, and might support the need for a shift toward the consistent use of a smaller number of valid, reliable, and clinically useful scales within the podiatric medical literature.

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Ali S, Griffin NL, Ellis W, Meyr AJ It is important to have a full appreciation of lower-extremity anatomical relationships before undertaking diabetic foot surgery. We sought to evaluate the potential for communication of the flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon with other pedal tendons and plantar foot compartments at the master knot of Henry and to provide cadaveric images and computed tomographic (CT) scans of such communications. Computed tomography and subsequent anatomical dissection were performed on embalmed cadaveric limbs. Initially, 5 to 10 mL (1:4 dilution) of iohexol and normal saline was injected into the FHL sheath as it coursed between the two hallux sesamoids. Subsequently, CT scans were obtained in the axial plane using a multidetector CT scanner...

  • Symptomatic Os VesalianumA Case Report and Review of the Literature.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: We report a case of a 19-year-old girl with chronic weightbearing pain proximal to the base of the fifth metatarsal of her left foot. She first experienced exacerbated pain on increased loading when she started professional training as a shop assistant. Because several months of nonsurgical therapy failed, the decision was made to surgically excise the accessory bone from the peroneus brevis tendon via a longitudinal incision and a simple tendon-to-tendon reconstruction. Postoperative treatment consisted of using a walker to avoid weightbearing for 6 weeks, followed by a gradual return to full weightbearing as tolerated. At final follow-up, the patient was fully asymptomatic and was able to return to work. Citing this case, this article discusses differential diagnoses and treatment option...

  • Treatment Algorithm for Chronic Achilles Tendon LesionsReview of the
           Literature and Proposal of a New Classification.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Buda R, Castagnini F, Pagliazzi G, Giannini S Chronic Achilles tendon lesions (CATLs) ensue from a neglected acute rupture or a degenerated tendon. Surgical treatment is usually required. The current English literature (PubMed) about CATLs was revised, and particular emphasis was given to articles depicting CATL classification. The available treatment algorithms are based on defect size. We propose the inclusion of other parameters, such as tendon degeneration, etiology, and time from injury to surgery. Partial lesions affecting less than (I stage) or more than (II stage) half of the tendon should be treated conservatively for healthy tendons, within 12 weeks of injury. In II stage complex cases, an end-to-end anastomosis is required. Complete lesions inferior to ...

  • A Case Report of Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia Diagnosed in a
           Podiatric Medical Patient.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Amin K, Mckay D Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), which is also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome, is a group of related disorders characterized by the development of arteriovenous malformations. These malformations occur in almost all organs but predominantly in the skin, intestines, liver, lungs, and brain. This is a case report of a patient with cutaneous manifestations of HHT in the lower extremities as diagnosed by his podiatric physician. To our knowledge, the literature does not present any case reports in which cutaneous manifestations of the lower extremities followed by a further work-up allowed a diagnosis of HHT.

  • Distance Between the Malleoli and the GroundA New Clinical Method to
           Measure Leg-Length Discrepancy.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: This new method (the DMG) is useful for diagnosing leg-length discrepancy and is related to the ASIS-external malleolus measurement. The DIMG is significantly inversely proportional to the degree of pronation according to the FPI. Conversely, determination of leg-length discrepancy with a tape measure from the ASIS to the malleoli cannot be performed interchangeably at the level of the internal or external malleolus.

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: We report an unusual case of adenocarcinoma of the lung metastasizing to the proximal phalanx of the third digit in a 56-year-old woman with overlying complex regional pain syndrome. The patient was initially treated for neuroma, fracture, and neuropathic pain with no improvement over a 4-month period before presenting to the emergency department for left third digit pain. Radiographic imaging showed substantial osteopenia and mottling; magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated an aggressive lesion to the proximal phalanx. The patient underwent excision of the lesion, revealing metastatic moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma.

  • The Role of Podiatry in the Prevention of Falls in Older People: A JAPMA
           Special Issue.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Najafi B, de Bruin ED, Reeves ND, Armstrong DG, Menz HB Given the age-related decline in foot strength and flexibility, and the emerging evidence that foot problems increase the risk of falls, established guidelines for falls prevention recommend that older adults have their feet examined by a podiatrist as a precautionary measure. However, these guidelines do not specify which intervention activities might be performed. Published in this special issue of JAPMA are nine high-quality articles, including seven original studies and two basic science reviews, focusing on the benefit and impact of footwear and foot and ankle interventions in reducing the risk of falling. The selected studies discuss various relevant questions related to podiatric intervention, includin...

      Abstract: Conclusions: The present research implemented a novel balance rehabilitation strategy based on virtual reality technology. The method included wearable sensors and an interactive user interface for real-time visual feedback based on ankle joint motion, similar to a video gaming environment, for compensating impaired joint proprioception. These findings support that visual feedback generated from the ankle joint coupled with motor learning may be effective in improving postural stability in patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

           randomized controlled trials.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: Conclusions: Evidence suggests that FA exercise can improve certain fall risk-related motor outcomes and reduce falls. Limited effects on strength and functional ability might be related to insufficient training intensity and lack of adherence. Further studies that include progressive strength and flexibility training are necessary to validate which FA exercise programs are most effective at preventing falls.

Radiologic findings of increased density and fragmentation are found also in pain-free controls with high levels of physical activity and may, therefore, represent normal growth and development. We suggest that the diagnosis of Sever's injury should be based on patient history and the results of two specific clinical tests.

      Abstract: Conclusion: Children with an ITW gait demonstrated reduced flexibility at the ankle joint but similar weightbearing foot posture compared with non-toe-walking children, showing that for children 4 to 8 years old, an ITW gait affects the available ankle dorsiflexion but seems to have a limited effect on weightbearing foot posture as measured by the FPI-6.

  • Low long-term risk of foot ulcer recurrence after nerve decompression in a
           diabetes neuropathy cohort.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: Conclusions: The prospective, objective, statistically significant finding of a large, long-term diminution of diabetic foot ulcer recurrence risk after operative nerve decompression compares very favorably with the historical literature and the contralateral legs of this cohort, which had no decompression. This finding invites prospective randomized controlled studies for validation testing and reconsideration of the frequency and contribution of unrecognized nerve entrapments in diabetic sensorimotor polyneuropathy and diabetic foot complications.

      Abstract:
      Authors : Becerro de Bengoa Vallejo R, Losa Iglesias ME, Rodriguez MF, Tirado FV Transposition of the flexor digitorum longus tendon has been widely reported for the correction of flexible claw and hammertoe deformities. The most common technique uses two cutaneous incisions, one plantar and another dorsal. We performed a cadaveric study to determine whether the flexor digitorum longus tendon could be transferred to the dorsum of the proximal phalanx of the toe from its lateral or medial aspect through a unique single longitudinal central dorsal incision. The rationale for this novel approach was to minimize the risk of vascular compromise to the digit associated with the two-incision approach. Transposition of the flexor digitorum longus tendon was attempted in 120 toes of...

      Authors : Zhubrak MS, Fisher TK, Armstrong DG Although the literature is replete with recommendations for people with diabetes-particularly those with neuropathy, ischemia, or both-to avoid caring for corns and calluses on their own feet, there are virtually no reports of damage associated with this care. The purpose of this article is to report on the potential perils of personal pedicures in the presence of peripheral neuropathy by using a case-based example. In this article, we report on the inappropriate use of a Ped Egg personal pedicure device that led to limb-threatening lesions in a gentleman with diabetic peripheral sensory neuropathy.

           Pressure-Plate System.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: Conclusions: This study demonstrates that the EPS-Platform is a reliable device for collecting gait plantar pressures. Static trials produce better reliability, most likely owing to the large inherent variability during dynamic gait. Intersession reliability was higher than intrasession reliability owing to the intersession measures being calculated with an average of five trials. By averaging the trials, the variability of gait is decreased, and this improves the accuracy of the results. These results can be used as the basis for future studies and to determine a priori sample sizes for investigations that use the EPS-Platform.

The left first metatarsophalangeal joint was reduced successfully through the closed method, but multiple attempts at closed reduction under local anesthesia failed to reduce the dislocated second and third metatarsophalangeal joints. We performed a dorsal incision between the second and third metatarsals, and the metatarsal heads were found to be entrapped under the plantar plate. Dislocation reduction was performed without damage to the plantar plate, and one Kirschner wire was used to fix the fourth metatarsal head fracture. The pin was removed 8 weeks after surgery, and the patient regained normal gait and returned ...

      Authors : Henderson BC, Lawson D, Conley GR Second- and third-degree burns of the toes resulted when a 69-year-old man with Charcot foot and a recent fractured ankle followed the advice of his local podiatrist. The man got his fiberglass cast wet while showering and was told to dry his cast using the low setting on a blow dryer. The following presents a literature review of cast drying, hair dryers, and this unfortunate man's case.

  • Open reduction-internal fixation of a navicular body fracture with dorsal
           displacement of the first and second cuneiforms: a case report.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Andersen RC, Neiderer K, Martin B, Dancho J Body fractures of the tarsal navicular are relatively uncommon. To date, there is little literature discussing a navicular body fracture with dorsal subluxation of the first and second cuneiforms over the navicular. This case study presents a 30-year-old patient with this injury. He underwent open reduction internal fixation of the navicular body fracture successfully but failed adequate reduction of the navicular cuneiform joint after ligamentous reconstruction. After revisional surgery, he also failed 6 weeks of percutanous pinning with Kirschner-wire fixation. When comparing the literature of a similar injury, the Lisfranc fracture disclocation, the same principles may apply. One should consider rigid open reduction i...

  • Plantar loading asymmetry in american indians with diabetes and peripheral
           neuropathy, with diabetes only, and without diabetes.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Overall, American Indians with diabetes seemed to show greater asymmetry in plantar loading variables across the forefoot region compared with those in the control group. Specifically, individuals with diabetes and peripheral neuropathy had the greatest amount of forefoot pressure-time integral asymmetry. Significant peak plantar pressure asymmetry occurred in the third metatarsal region of the forefoot in those with diabetes with and without peripheral neuropathy. Loading asymmetry may play a role in the development of foot ulcers in the forefoot region of American Indians with peripheral neuropathy and diabetes.

      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Continuous running at a moderate speed (3.3 m/sec) induced changes in heel strike related to enhanced pronation posture, indicative of greater stress on that zone after physical activity. This observation may help us understand the functioning of the foot, prevent injuries, and design effective plantar orthoses in sport.

      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: The use of this reciprocal system introduces a new dimension of foot loading to the knee axis alignment. This insight shows that locating knee functional axes is equivalent to the static alignment measurement. This method can be used for the optimal design of braces and orthoses for conservative treatment of knee osteoarthritis.

  • Deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism as rare complications after
           hallux valgus surgery: case report and literature review.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: We describe a 57-year-old female patient who underwent surgery for bilateral hallux valgus deformities and was diagnosed as having deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism after the surgery despite early mobilization and mechanical prohylaxis. Her preoperative physical examination revealed varicose veins in both cruris. She was treated for pulmonary embolism with low-molecular-weight heparin and an oral anticoagulant in the postoperative period. Although venous thromboembolism is more commonly described after proximal lower-extremity procedures, it can occur after foot and ankle surgery, particularly if the patient has certain risk factors. Therefore, in addition to mechanical prophylaxis, pharmacologic prophylaxis should be kept in mind in such patients. PMID: 23536506 [PubMed - ...

  • Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the distal hallux.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : David MG, Stumph J, David BM Squamous cell carcinoma is a common disease of cutaneous tissue with a great ability to form metastases. Squamous cell carcinoma is found most commonly on sun-damaged skin and has a rare occurrence on the toes and feet. The patient was a 68-year-old woman who was seen at a podiatric specialty office with a complaint of pain in her left great toe and toenail. Radiographs displayed erosion of the distal hallux, and magnetic resonance imaging revealed no further spread of disease in the proximal phalanx. An amputation was performed of the hallux interphalangeal joint, and pathology confirmed squamous cell carcinoma of the verrucous type.

      Abstract:
      Authors : Mirzanli C, Esenyel CZ, Ozturk K, Baris A, Imren Y Xanthomas are described as deposits in the skin and subcutaneous tissues. Mostly known as pseudotumors, xanthomas consist of connective tissue containing mainly cholesterol, triglycerides, and numerous foamy macrophages. Bilateral Achilles tendon xanthomata is pathognomonic for cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis in the case of normal cholesterol levels but increased cholestanol levels in serum. In this article, we present findings regarding bilateral xanthomas of Achilles tendons in a patient with cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis.

  • The professor position and the single-stance flexion test may clarify the
           effect of lumbar spinal stenosis or pseudostenosis on lower-extremity
           symptoms.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Goldman SM The effect of lumbar spinal stenosis on lower-extremity symptoms is often hard to ascertain in patients with multiple possible causes of symptoms. A positive response to two described maneuvers performed by patients in the office involving flexion of the spine can strongly corroborate the contribution of lumbar spinal stenosis to lower-extremity symptoms, although a negative response does not negate it. The professor position involves the patient standing and leaning in a gentle flexion position, with hands held secure behind the lower back. The single-stance flexion test has the patient gently leaning on support, with only a single symptomatic extremity supporting his or her body weight. Reduction or elimination of lower-extremity symptoms otherwise ex...

  • Toward a change in syntax in diabetic foot care: prevention equals
           remission.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Armstrong DG, Mills JL Because neuroischemic complications are associated with a high rate of recurrence, we propose a slight shift in the mechanism by which we counsel and communicate risk daily with our patients. If the epidemiology of this problem is comparable with that of cancer, and recurrences are common, then perhaps language commensurate with such risks should follow. After initial healing of an index wound, our unit now refers to patients not as being cured but rather as being "in remission." This concept is easy for the patient and the rest of the team to understand. We believe that it powerfully connotes the necessity for frequent follow-up and rapid intervention for inevitable minor and sometimes major complications. PMID: 23536510 [PubMed - in pr...

  • 2012 infectious diseases society of america clinical practice guideline

      Abstract:
      Authors : Lipsky BA, Berendt AR, Cornia PB, Pile JC, Peters EJ, Armstrong DG, Deery HG, Embil JM, Joseph WS, Karchmer AW, Pinzur MS, Senneville E Foot infections are a common and serious problem in persons with diabetes. Diabetic foot infections (DFIs) typically begin in a wound, most often a neuropathic ulceration. While all wounds are colonized with microorganisms, the presence of infection is defined by ≥2 classic findings of inflammation or purulence. Infections are then classified into mild (superficial and limited in size and depth), moderate (deeper or more extensive), or severe (accompanied by systemic signs or metabolic perturbations). This classification system, along with a vascular assessment, helps determine which patients should be hospitalized, which may re...

  • Effect of a Forefoot Off-loading Postoperative Shoe on Muscle Activity,
           Posture, and Static Balance.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: Conclusions: The posterior shift in center of pressure toward and behind the ankle joint axis is believed to result in the increase in tibialis anterior muscle activity that now acts as the primary stabilizer around the ankle. Instability may, therefore, increase in patients with weak tibialis anterior muscles (eg, diabetic neuropathy) who need to wear offloading devices for ulcer management. We suggest that the addition of a contralateral shoe raise fitted with a FOPS may potentially be beneficial in maintaining stability while off-loading the forefoot in this patient group.

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Frykberg RG, Gordon S, Tierney E, Tallis A Heparin is an anticoagulant commonly used to treat and prevent deep venous thrombosis. Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and possible thrombosis are serious complications associated with its use. This can occasionally complicate treatment of patients undergoing podiatric surgery. Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia is often not immediately recognized and is underreported in podiatric medicine literature. The goal of this case report is to highlight the multiple risk factors associated with the development of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and to aid with early recognition, understanding of pathogenesis, and treatment options.

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: We present a case of closed peritalar dislocation without any accompanying fractures and, thus, discuss the conflicts encountered in this rare injury. A 25-year-old male patient presented with severe pain, swelling, and deformity in his right ankle within 30 minutes of a fall from a height. There were no wounds around the ankle. Radiographs revealed that the talus was disrupted from the calcaneus, navicula, and tibia moving in the anterolateral direction. No accompanying fractures were seen in the talus or in surrounding bones. After an unsuccessful closed reduction attempt, a further decision was open reduction. It was seen that the interposed joint capsula was preventing reduction. After reduction, stability of the ankle was checked and found to be satisfactory, so no fixation material w...

  • Measuring Teaching Effectiveness--or Not.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Shaw GP Faculty in the present-day academic medicine environment are expected to perform multiple functions, notably, the provision of high-quality teaching to the medical professionals of tomorrow. However, evaluating the effectiveness of this teaching is particularly difficult. Student evaluations of teaching, despite their many flaws, are widely used as a convenient tool to measure teaching effectiveness. Administrators continue to routinely use student evaluation of teaching surveys in faculty retention/promotion and merit pay decisions. This practice should be reevaluated since it may have unintended consequences, such as grade inflation and content debasement, and may contribute to faculty leaving the institution and even the profession. A more valid, reliab...
