A glomus tumor is a rare and benign vascular tumor. It can originate in multiple locations on the body, although it has most frequently been found in subungeal areas of the hand. This two cases report describes a glomus tumor of the hallux, including a recurrence and a review of the related literature. We believe this case study might be of interest due to(More)
BACKGROUND Most studies of hallux valgus surgery focus on the radiological findings or on medium-term clinical follow-up. The results obtained using various osteotomy techniques do not differ greatly. However, patient comfort and the need for postoperative care do appear to present differences. In the Kramer technique, the osteotomy is secured with a wire(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Avascular necrosis of femoral head (AVN) has been identified as a frequent complication after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Advances in the treatment for haematological malignancies have improved survival after HSCT. The aim of this study was to report the short and medium-term results of total hip arthroplasty for(More)
BACKGROUND Retrospective review of the clinical and functional results and the degree of satisfaction of patients with osteochondral talar lesions treated with arthroscopic debridement, curettage and microfractures at our center. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between January 2008 and December 2011, a total of 30 patients with osteochondral talar lesions were seen.(More)
The anatomy of the superficial peroneal nerve (SPN) and, more precisely, of the distal branches of the SPN at the ankle has attracted interest owing to the possibility of injury when performing ankle arthroscopy. The anterolateral portal is one of the most commonly used portals in ankle arthroscopy, and the intermediate dorsal cutaneous nerve can easily be(More)
The clinical examination of ruptures of the flexor hallucis longus can be difficult, especially spontaneous defects that arise without a definitive history of trauma. Advanced imaging, in particular, magnetic resonance imaging, can be a useful adjunct to the clinical examination. However, we believe that a simple clinical maneuver can be used to reliably(More)
BACKGROUND Arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint is an effective procedure for many foot pathologies. Many studies have focused on the moment at which joint fusion is carried out, or on the medium- and long-term outcomes. The aim of this study was to assess the clinical progression of patients, evaluating both pain and changes on the AOFAS(More)
Myossitis ossificans (MO) is an aberrant reparative process that causes benign heterotopic ossification in soft tissue. We report a case of MO presenting as a large mass located at the dorsal aspect of the distal thigh, with no history of trauma, with radiological and clinical features mimicking parosteal sarcoma. An incisional biopsy was performed and the(More)
