MR imaging of the tarsal tunnel
and related spaces: normal and abnormal findings with anatomic correlation.
Moreover, the occurrence of the tarsal tunnel
syndrome on the side affected by disc disease is much higher than on the unaffected side (13.2% vs.
Compression in a fibroosseous tunnel Carpal tunnel syndrome Cubital tunnel syndrome Tarsal tunnel
Neurovascular The posterior tibial nerve (between the FDL and FHL tendons) may become entrapped in the tarsal tunnel
. Etiologies include soft tissue masses, such as ganglion cysts, tendon pathology with thickening and mass effect, thickening of the flexor retinaculum, or, less commonly, osseous abnormalities (Figure 13).
F.R.: Tarsal tunnel
syndrome is the ankle-foot equivalent of the wrist-hand carpal tunnel syndrome.
Permanent Residuals: Soft tissue crushing injury resulting in tarsal tunnel
syndrome and Morton's neuroma.
Using a medial incision lateral to the posterior tibial artery, dissection of the tarsal tunnel
was carried out.
The presence of AFDL is believed to be associated with tarsal tunnel
syndrome [15, 26, 28-30], club foot , and flexor hallucis syndrome .
Plantar fasciitis does not cause paresthesias or other neurologic symptoms, so their presence is suggestive of a different diagnosis, such as nerve entrapment, compartment syndrome, or tarsal tunnel
(1) Hyperpronation of the foot is also associated with tarsal tunnel
syndrome, though the condition is less common in the general population.
