There has been little research concerning this muscle since the 1920s, when Hecker described this muscle to be present in (13%) of his dissections of cadaver legs. The purpose of our dissections was to establish the incidence of the peroneus quartus muscle, its origins, and insertions. One hundred and twenty-four legs from 65 fresh human cadavers were(More)
Dorsal instability of the metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ) of the lesser toes is an important cause of forefoot pain. Both conservative and surgical treatment options have been proposed. However, the role of each static stabilizing structure has not been elucidated. We hypothesized that isolated sectioning of the plantar plate (PP) would result in greater(More)
The role of the competent superior peroneal retinaculum (SPR) as a primary restraint to peroneal tendon subluxation and mechanical attritional wear is clear. Injury to the SPR has classically been described as a dorsiflexion eversion movement of the ankle coupled with a forceful peroneal tendon reflex contraction. This mechanism, however, does not cause(More)
The microvascular anatomy of the sesamoid complex was investigated in 15 cadaver specimens using histology and tissue clearing (Spalteholz) techniques. It was found that both sesamoids appeared equally well vascularized and the vascular supply to each sesamoid originated from two major sources (proximal and plantar) and one minor source (distal).(More)
The etiology of longitudinal splitting of the peroneus brevis tendon is unclear. It has been hypothesized that compressive load applied to the tendon as it passes through the fibular groove may compromise the vascularity of the tendon with resultant inhibition of the repair response and degeneration of tendon structure. To investigate this possibility, a(More)
This article reviews 54 consecutive patients with lower extremity ganglion cysts that were surgically removed and histologically confirmed at the Hospital for Special Surgery from 1981 to 1993. Lower extremity ganglia were more common among women. Patients' ages ranged from 13 to 80 years, with the fifth and sixth decades being the most common. Size of the(More)
The etiology of peroneus brevis splits is unclear. Because longitudinal splits in the peroneus brevis tendon do not necessarily effect the integrity or strength of the tendon, it is difficult to ascertain whether or not injury to the peroneus brevis tendon is present. Recent clinical, anatomic, and histologic reports have suggested that the split develops(More)
Lipomas are among the most commonly encountered soft tissue tumors in clinical practice, though they are rare in the foot. Although a presumptive diagnosis is typically made clinically, those tumors with atypical clinical features may require radiological consultation. Difficulty arises when radiographic features are not typical of lipoma. We present a(More)
Twenty-six knees were scanned after total replacement to evaluate the relationship between bone scan, pain, the presence of a radiolucent line at the bone-cement interface and loosening. A radiolucent line was often accompanied by an increased uptake over the affected condyle, but there was no significant relationship with pain or loosening.
