Entrapment and pseudo-entrapment neuropathy syndromes in foot and ankle

Errichiello C.

Centro di Chirurgia del Piede “Prof. G. Pisani”, Torino, Italia


PDF


The author reports on entrapment neuropathies, which may manifest in the foot and ankle. With regard to these neuropathies, different forms of compression in a real anatomically represented osteofibrous channel can be distinguished from pseudo-tunnels. In particular, the last definition refers to a chronic compression neuropathy, due to a micro- or a macrotrauma, that occurs outside a osteofibrous tunnel and therefore does not allow to detect a precise site of involvement.
