tarsal tunnel decompression
Subscribe to get full access to this operation and the extensive Foot Surgery Atlas.
Tarsal tunnel syndrome classically presents with neurological symptoms effecting the sole of the foot.
Most commonly it is due to tight fascial layers or peri-neural fibrosis though extrinsic compression from ganglions and other space occupying lesions can less commonly cause the condition.
Nerve conduction testing is usually though not invariably diagnostic but examination often equivocal.
Surgical treatment if performed with rigorous attention to detail is highly successful in my experience and warranted in cases irrespective of chronicity.
