Adjacent interdigital nerve irritation: single incision surgical treatment.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Twenty-three patients with clinical signs of adjacent intermetatarsal nerve irritation who underwent adjacent nerve release with single-nerve excision through one incision were studied. Mean follow-up was 11 months. Of 21 patients interviewed, 19 (90%) had resolution of all or most of their pain, 20 (95%) had no or only minimal activity limitation, and 20 (95%) were completely satisfied with their outcome. Of 19 patients examined, none had pain with compression of the interspace of the excised nerve, although two (11%) had discomfort with compression of the interspace of the nerve that was only released. Protective sensation was present postoperatively in all patients except one who had preoperative neuropathy.
