The tarsal tunnel syndrome: a report of eight cases

Foot Ankle. 1985 Dec;6(3):146-9. doi: 10.1177/107110078500600305.


The authors report eight cases of tarsal tunnel syndrome, pointing out the difficulty of a differential diagnosis and the possibility of a complete restoration to normality by surgery in those cases which were resistant to local conservative treatment. Tight laciniate ligament, varices, exostosis, and adhesions were noted as the causative factors.
