Abstract Osteonecrosis, also referred to as avascular necrosis, refers to the death of cells within bone caused by a lack of circulation. It has been documented in bones throughout the body. In the foot, osteonecrosis is most commonly seen in the talus, the first and second metatarsals, and the navicular. Although uncommon, osteonecrosis has been documented in almost every bone of the foot and therefore should be considered in the differential diagnosis when evaluating both adult and pediatric…

TLDR
This is the first report of late-onset proximal phalangeal osteonecrosis after trauma in the great toe, and Conservative treatment led to spontaneous recovery, leaving a bony fragment in the interphalangeal joint.
Tarsal Navicular Osteonecrosis in Children

Osteonecrosis (avascular, aseptic or ischemic bone necrosis) of the tarsal navicular in children may develop either spontaneously (primary, idiopathic, atraumatic or non-traumatic) or secondary to
Osteochondrosis: common causes of pain in growing bones.
Osteochondrosis is a term used to describe a group of disorders that affect the growing skeleton. These disorders result from abnormal growth, injury, or overuse of the developing growth plate and
Imaging of Tarsal Navicular Disorders
TLDR
The purpose of this article is to discuss normal variants and pathological processes that can affect the tarsal navicular, with emphasis on the often-overlooked imaging findings.
Treatment of Spontaneous Osteonecrosis of the Tarsal Navicular With a Free Medial Femoral Condyle Vascularized Bone Graft
TLDR
An unusual case of unilateral MWS in a 25-year-old male who failed nonoperative therapy and was successfully treated with a novel operative approach using debridement followed by a free medial femoral condyle vascularized bone graft is reported.
Bilateral Osteonecrosis of the Navicular and Medial Cuneiform in a Patient with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
TLDR
This study presents the first case of bilateral atraumatic AVN to the navicular and medial cuneiform in a patient with systemic lupus erythamatosus and demonstrates considerable improvement to both extremities.
Un caso di osteocondrosi di scafoide tarsale (Köhler I): problematiche diagnostiche e terapeutiche
TLDR
The benignity of this condition is stressed, describing a clinical case that was followed during the whole patient’s skeletal development, to allow the restoring of a normal bone vascularization.
Bilateral Osteochondrosis of Medial Cuneiform and Tarsal Scaphoid: A Case Report
TLDR
A five year-old white child with a completely benign medical history presented with bilateral foot pain with a rare case report of bilateral osteochondrosis of medial cuneiform and tarsal scaphoid and it resolves in few months with relief of the foot pain.
Distinguishing between congenital phenomena and traumatic experiences: Osteochondrosis versus osteochondritis.
TLDR
This study provides a technique for distinguishing osteochondrosis and osteochondritis and further documents of the value of epi-illumination microscopy in expanding the understanding of bone and joint disease.
Pediatric Problems and Rehabilitation Geared to the Young Athlete
TLDR
Most adolescent athletes will recover well from foot fractures and ankle sprains without surgery, but some variants require more aggressive intervention.

Pathogenesis and natural history of osteonecrosis.
TLDR
The understanding of the pathogenesis of osteonecrosis is now much better defined and skeletal scintigraphy and magnetic resonance imaging have enhanced diagnosis greatly, helping the physician determine which patients are at risk for oste onecrosis, facilitating early diagnosis and better treatment options.

TLDR
Present evidence suggests that osteonecrosis of the femoral or humeral head should properly be classified as either traumatic (macrovascular injury) or embolic (microvascular injury] in nature.
Long-term follow up of talus fractures.
TLDR
Patients who had experienced a fracture of the talus more than 10 years previously were assessed and arthrodesis was recommended in patients with pain because the outcome is greatly improved by arthropdesis, even when performed more than10 years after the injury.
Talus Fractures: Evaluation and Treatment
TLDR
Operative treatment should, therefore, be considered for all displaced fractures, and prompt and accurate reduction minimizes their incidence and severity.
Avascular necrosis of the hallux metatarsal head.
TLDR
Management of symptomatic AVN of the first metatarsal head has not been standardized because of the infrequency of this condition and anecdotal experience suggests that simple activity and shoe modifications may suffice; however, joint debridement and metatarsAL head decompression may prove beneficial as they have in the management of other joints more commonly afflicted with AVN.
Idiopathic Osteonecrosis of the First Metatarsal Head: A Case Report
TLDR
Surgical intervention, by removal of the necrotic area followed by metatarsophalangeal joint fusion, alleviated a 66-year-old woman's foot pain.
Osteochondritis of the Navicular: A Case Report
TLDR
This case report presents a teenage patient with osteochondritis of the navicular bone with symptoms that persisted into skeletal maturity.
Talar neck fractures: results and outcomes.
TLDR
Osteonecrosis was associated with talar neck comminution and open fractures, confirming that higher-energy injuries are associated with more complications and a worse prognosis.
Müller-Weiss disease: clinical and biomechanical features.
Müller-Weiss disease is a rare condition that is characterized by an odd deformation of the tarsal navicular, which may appears queezed and eventually fragmented between the talar head and the
Circulatory Disturbance of the First Metatarsal Head after Chevron Osteotomy as Shown by Bone Scintigraphy
TLDR
Chevron osteotomy is a safe method in the treatment of hallux valgus which can be combined with adductor tenotomy without increasing the risk for circulatory disturbance.
