Endoscopic Subtotal Fasciectomy of the Foot.


ABSTRACT: Plantar fibromatosis is a rare benign but often locally aggressive tumor of the plantar aponeurosis. Nonsurgical treatment is the first line of treatment for symptomatic lesions. Because of the high recurrence rate associated with surgical treatment, operation is indicated only when the lesions are highly symptomatic and conservative measures fail or the diagnosis is in question. The purpose of this technical note is to report the details of endoscopic subtotal fasciectomy. This may reduce the risks of skin necrosis and dehiscence, infection, and formation of painful hypertrophic scars.
