  • Preliminary Evaluation of a Cycling Cleat Designed for Diabetic Foot
           Ulcers.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: The specialized cleat allowed participants to exercise with minimal forefoot stress. The observed increase in perfusion suggests that healing might improve if patients with active DFU were to use the cleat. Potential thermotherapy for DFU was not supported by this study. Evaluation of the device among individuals with active DFU is now warranted. PMID: 27824259 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association)

  • Plantar fasciitis. A comparison of treatment with intralesional steroids
           versus platelet-rich plasma (PRP). A randomized, blinded study.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: We can conclude that the use of PRP is an effective treatment method for patients with plantar fasciitis who do not respond to conservative treatment because PRP demonstrates an efficacy equal to that of steroids. However, the cost and the time for preparation the PRP are two of the disadvantages of this treatment.

  • The Reliability of Venous Duplex Ultrasound and Clinical Findings for the
           Diagnosis of Lower Extremity Deep Venous Thrombosis.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: We think these findings indicate that VDU may lack the diagnostic accuracy to be considered a gold standard for the diagnosis of lower extremity DVT. We also think this finding highlights the importance of appreciating that VDU is a dynamic evaluation reliant on the clinical knowledge and technical skills of whoever is performing the test. Reviewing static imaging alone may not provide enough information to make the diagnosis consistently.

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that the decision to use LMWH prophylaxis should not be based solely on the type of foot/ankle surgery planned. Patient factors also need to be carefully weighed. PMID: 27649408 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association)

  • Type IV Cell-Mediated Hypersensitivity Reaction Caused by Titanium Implant
           Following Medial Displacement Calcaneal Osteotomy and First
           Metatarsal-Cuneiform Arthrodesis.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: A hypersensitivity reaction to Ti should remain a differential diagnosis for a patient presenting with symptoms such as prolonged fever, contact dermatitis, sterile osteomyelitis, and impaired wound healing. Preoperative diagnostic tools, such as the patch test, can be utilized to prevent allergic reactions from occurring. Treatments for Ti hypersensitivity should be tailored to fit the patient's needs and can include removal or substitution of the Ti hardware, external fixation, and immunosuppressants.

  • Minimally-Invasive Repair of Bilateral Calcaneal Fractures with Unilateral
           External Fixation: A Case Report.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Percutaneous repair, along with external fixation, offers a viable alternative to ORIF for calcaneal fractures. A percutaneous approach also does not disrupt the potentially fragile soft tissue envelope in a calcaneal fracture. Although this outcome is positive, larger controlled studies are needed to confirm percutaneous approaches and external fixation in the realm of a calcaneal fracture.

  • Corynebacterium Striatum : A Concerning Pathogen of Osteomyelitis in the
           Diabetic Patient.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: We report four cases of diabetic foot osteomyelitis in which C. striatum was noted and treated as a pathogen. Diphtheroids are often overlooked as a potential pathogen in diabetic foot infections and rarely treated as such. However, our findings suggest that clinicians should consider C. striatum as a possible cause of osteomyelitis, especially when patients fail to completely heal wounds in a timely manner that have previously and repeatedly displayed Diphtheroids from cultures.

  • The Rare Lesser Metatarsal Bipartite Sesamoid - A Case Report and
           Literature Review.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: number one at 7.6% and foot and ankle at 51.4%, respectively. One study found that initial emergency room diagnosis and final foot and ankle outpatient clinic diagnosis did not match in 21.4% of patients evaluated. Lesser metatarsal sesamoids are more common in the 2nd and 5th metatarsal and overall range between 0.2-15%. However, no literature to the authors knowledge exists demonstrating a bipartite lesser sesamoid, and more specifically to 5th metatarsal.

  • Impact of Arch Height Flexibility on Dynamic Plantar Pressure in Healthy
           Young Subjects with Planus Feet.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: A significant difference was found in Center of Pressure Excursion Index (CPEI) and Peak Pressure (PP). Post hoc pairwise comparisons showed a significant difference between flexible versus stiff AHF: those with flexible AHF exhibited reduced CPEI (greater hyperpronation) while those with stiff AHF showed elevated PP. Results suggest that, in addition to AHI, the arch flexibility may affect dynamic foot function. This was a part of larger study. Additional studies are needed to examine the effects of AHI and AHF on regional plantar loading and overuse injuries.

      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: As expected fungal nail cultures are sometimes less sensitive than our clinical evaluation. This may be due to false negatives or failure to obtain an adequate sample for culture analysis. This may effect treatment standard of care and accuracy of treatment.

  • The Advantages of Dermoscopy in the Diagnosis of Acral Melanoma from Other
           Podiatric Lesions: A Literature Review.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: The use of dermoscopy is slowly evolving in podiatry. It aims to minimize the amount of biopsies taken, thereby decreasing the risk of creating an ulcer and reducing the patients exposure to anesthesia. While controversy remains over sensitivity and specificity of using a dermatoscope alone to diagnose pedal lesions, particular attention should be paid to the accuracy of diagnosing a lesion when dermoscopy is used in conjunction with a biopsy. With the continued usage of a dermatoscope along with experience and expertise in the field, the need for a biopsy could eventually be eliminated.

  • Foot Temperature Trends in Normal, Diabetic, and Neuropathic Foot
           Populations.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Diabetic feet, with and without neuropathy, tend to be warmer than the feet of patients with other non-diabetic neuropathies. The finding of no statistical difference between non-neuropathic diabetic and neuropathic diabetic feet is unexpected in that a number of these patients were projected to have an autonomic system component. These null findings suggest the need to further investigate neuropathy solely determined by sensory testing versus tests for autonomic system involvement.

  • Tedizolid and Linezolid for Treatment of Acute Bacterial Skin and Skin
           Structure Infections of the Lower Extremity versus Non-Lower Extremity:
           Pooled Analysis of Two Phase 3 Trials.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Post-therapy evaluations showed that the clinical response of lower-extremity ABSSSI to tedizolid and linezolid was comparable to that of ABSSSI in other locations. A short 6-day course of once-daily tedizolid was as effective as a 10-day course of twice-daily linezolid in treating patients with lower-extremity ABSSSI.

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Ozkaya DB, Su O, Bahalı AG, Topukçu B, Dizman D, Tosuner Z, Demirkesen C, Onsun N First described in 1963, eccrine syringofibroadenoma (ESFA) is a rare benign tumor that proliferates with differentiation toward ductal eccrine structures. There are many clinical presentations, including plaques, papules, verrucous plaques, keratotic tumors, and solitary tumors. The age of onset varies, with presentation between 16 and 80 years; however, solitary lesions are seen most commonly in the seventh and eighth decades. Here, we present the case of a 72-year-old woman referred to our outpatient clinic with a nodule on her leg. The histopathology result was ESFA. The lesion regressed after six cryotherapy sessions. Physicians should consider the possibility of ESFA and must...

  • Talar Osteochondroma Fracture Presenting as Posterior Ankle Impingement.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: We describe a 22-year-old man with solitary exostosis who presented with a posterior ankle mass and posterior ankle impingement with 2 years of follow-up. Surgical intervention was the treatment of choice in this patient, and histologic examination revealed a benign osteochondroma. Osteochondromas found in the posterior aspect of the talus can be complicated by fracture due to persistent motion of the ankle. Talar osteochondroma should be included in the differential diagnosis of posterior ankle impingement causes. Posterior talar osteochondromas, especially when a stalk is present, should be treated surgically before it is more complicated by a fracture and posterior ankle impingement.

  • Relationship Between Academic Performance and Student Self-Assessment of
           Clinical Performance in the College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Published studies in allopathic medical education have shown that students with lower GPAs tend to rate their clinical performance higher in initial clinical performance self-assessment. Our results show that student academic performance was not correlated with clinical performance self-assessment. These findings may be due to the explicit description of successful clinical competency completion, the orientation students receive before the start of clinical training, and the continuous feedback received from clinical preceptors.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...
