  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

    Percutaneous diskectomy is a new method for reducing lumbar disk herniation. This procedure is simple, safe, and only semiinvasive since it causes no direct damage to the dura or nerve roots. This technique employs a nucleotome (blunt-tipped, suction-cutting probe) with a rotating electric shaver (3 mm in diameter)[…][]

  • Morton's Metatarsalgia

    Abstract In an attempt to improve the accuracy of diagnosis, 16 patients suffering from Morton's metatarsalgia were investigated clinically and electrophysiologically. The histological findings were related to these observations. The precise aetiology of Morton's metatarsalgia remains obscure, but the findings are[…][]

  • Achilles Tendon Rupture

    Inability to stand on tiptoe. If the tendon is completely torn, you may feel a gap just above the back of the heel.[] Patients may notice an inability to stand on tiptoe and altered gait (inability to push off with the affected foot). Examination Observe gait.[]

  • Sacral Radiculopathy

    Sacroiliac (SI) joint fusion is considered for the treatment of degenerative sacroiliitis. The procedure has increased in popularity for patients who have exhausted less invasive treatment options since the development of percutaneous SI joint fusion systems. One possible complication of the procedure is a sacral[…][]

  • Metatarsal Fracture

    BACKGROUND: Intramedullary screw fixation of fractures of the proximal fifth metatarsal bone may not be satisfactory in comminuted fractures or when the lateral metatarsal bowing has to be restored. We report our experience with plate fixation in these circumstances. METHODS: Between June 1, 2009, and January[…][]
