Ingrown toenail has become one of the most prevalent onychopathies and a frequent reason for consultation in podiatry clinics. In the initial stages of the pathology, conservative treatments are the first choice of therapy. The aim was therefore, to analyze and compare the efficacy of the technique of nail re-education with gauze bandage and nail remodelling for the conservative treatment of onychocryptosis in stage I and IIA, A prospective, longitudinal, randomised clinical trial-type analytical study is proposed. A sample of 20 subjects with stage I and IIA onychocryptosis will be selected. Of these, 10 cases were part of the gauze bandage nail re-education group and the remaining 10 cases were part of the nail remodelling group.
Foot surgery is a painful surgery that is usually scheduled in outpatients. A good management of analgesia is the crucial point. Regional anesthesia (RA) is the gold standard, that provides good anesthesia and a long duration of analgesia. The sciatic nerve block (or its branches) is the most adapted analgesic technique. Limitation of proximal sciatic block is the motor block of the ankle and results in the impossibility, for the patient, to walk during the early post-operative period. Distal block of the sciatic nerve (tibial and fibular nerve blocks), at the level of the ankle, has been proposed to maintain the mobility of the ankle, to make deambulation with crutches easier. Nevertheless, the lack of sensibility of the heel remains a limitation for early walking, even with adapted shoes (ie : Barouk). A specific anesthesia of the distal part of the foot, respecting the heel, could be the best option to provide an early deambulation and a suitable analgesia. Ultrasound identification and specific anesthesia of the branches supplying the distal part of the foot (medial and lateral plantar nerves) could meet this dual objective : good anesthesia and suitable analgesia for early deambulation. This study is a feasibility study of a specific block of the plantar branches of the tibial nerve, to preserve the sensibility of the heel, in case of foot surgery. The safety of the procedure will be assessed according to the rate of postoperative dysesthesia.
Background: Ingrown toenails are one of the most frequent nail disorders and can be treated with conservative or surgical approaches. Although discovered a long time ago, the available data are still very limited on the potential effectiveness of nail braces for ingrown toenail treatment. Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of nail brace (combiped and podofix) for treatment of ingrown toenails.
This study's purpose is to prospectively determine whether topical therapy with an oxidized regenerated cellulose collagen-silver compound is more effective than the current standard of topical antibiotic therapy for care following the removal of an ingrown toenail. Eighty adult patients with ingrown toenails will be recruited. Each patient will randomly be assigned to apply either topical silver sulfadiazine cream (standard antibiotic) or the novel collagen-silver compound to their nail bed daily, following removal of the ingrown portion of nail. Patients will return for follow up visits weekly, until healing has occurred or twelve weeks have passed. Healing will be defined as resolution of drainage and inflammatory changes surrounding the nail border.
