  • 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...

  • Hallux valgus surgery may produce early improvements in balance control:
           results of a cross-sectional pilot study.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: Conclusions: This study provides supportive evidence regarding the benefits of corrective lower-extremity surgery on certain aspects of balance control. Patients seem to demonstrate early improvements in static balance after corrective HV surgery, whereas gait improvements may require a longer recovery time. Further research using a longitudinal study design and a larger sample size capable of assessing the long-term effects of HV surgical correction on balance and gait is probably warranted.

  • Balance rehabilitation: promoting the role of virtual reality in patients
           with diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      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.

  • Does footwear affect balance': the views and experiences of people
           with diabetes and neuropathy who have fallen.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: Conclusions: People with diabetic neuropathy have disease-specific needs and concerns relating to how footwear affects balance. Engaging with patients to address those needs and concerns is likely to improve the feasibility and acceptability of therapeutic footwear to reduce foot ulcer risk and boost balance confidence.

  • Footwear interventions: a review of their sensorimotor and mechanical
           effects on balance performance and gait in older adults.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract:
      Authors : Hatton AL, Rome K, Dixon J, Martin DJ, McKeon PO Footwear interventions, including shoe insoles and foot orthoses, have the capacity to enhance balance control and gait in older people. This review assessed the evidence for the effect of footwear interventions on static and dynamic balance performance and gait in older populations and explored proposed theories for underlying sensorimotor and mechanical mechanisms. We searched the Medline, EMBASE, CINAHL (the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature), and AMED databases and conducted hand searches. Of 115 relevant articles screened, 14 met the predefined inclusion criteria. Articles were grouped into one of three categories based on balance task (static balance performance during quiet standing, dy...

  • Effectiveness of foot and ankle exercise programs on reducing the risk of
           falling in older adults: a systematic review and meta-analysis of
           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.

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: Conclusions: The diagnosis of Sever's injury is clinical, not radiologic. 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.

  • 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.

  • Sagittal plane kinematics of passive dorsiflexion of the foot in
           adolescent athletes.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: Conclusions: Participants had very flexible foot dorsiflexion, unlike those in another study assessing adolescent athletes. This finding, together with nonsignificant statistical results, implies that foot dorsiflexion measurement may be performed at any foot posture without notably affecting results.

      Abstract: This article provides evidence supporting the clinical efficacy of corticosteroid injections, in particular those guided by imaging technology. The evidence challenges existing orthodoxy, which marginalizes this treatment as a secondary option. This challenge is supported by recently revised guidelines published by the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons advocating corticosteroid injection as a primary treatment option.

      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...

      Abstract:
      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.

      Abstract: Conclusions: There is a biomechanical advantage to performing FDLT or FDBT instead of PIPJA to surgically treat a hammertoe or claw toe deformity. In addition, tensile strain at the dorsal aspect of the second metatarsal bone when performing PIPJA increases the risk of metatarsalgia or stress fracture in patients at risk.

           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.

      Abstract:

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...

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.

  • Foot overuse diseases in rock climbing: an epidemiologic study.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Overuse foot diseases related to rock climbing are particularly frequent and debilitating. Detailed knowledge of these diseases and their predisposing factors may help us implement effective preventive or therapeutic measures, including changes in the type of climbing, correction of body weight, degree of difficulty, footwear, orthoses, and measures that maximize the support of the foot to the ground.

  • The effect of moderate running on foot posture index and plantar pressure
           distribution in male recreational runners.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      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.

  • The stationary configuration of the knee.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      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.

  • Cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis presenting with bilateral achilles tendon
           xanthomata: a case report.
    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      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

    • Authors: Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association
      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.

  • Heparin-induced Thrombocytopenia in the Setting of Perioperative Bridging
           for Podiatric Surgery: A Case Report.
    • 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.

  • Closed total dislocation of talus without any accompanying fractures.
    • 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...

      Abstract:
      Authors : Chiang C, Au MK Two women (24 and 27 years old) noted pain in the affected ankle of several years' duration. Radiography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed osteochondral lesions of the talus in both patients. The lesion sites measured 1.3 × 1.0 × 0.4 cm (0.52 cm(3)) and 2.0 × 1.9 × 0.5 cm (1.9 cm(3)). Each patient received a medial malleolar osteotomy with mosaicplasty. Donor plugs were obtained from the ipsilateral knee in both patients. Surgery was performed successfully in both patients without complications. At 2-year follow-up, both patients had recovered good ankle function, with no donor site morbidity.

    • 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...
