    It would be safe to say that among foot deformities, lesser digital deformities are one of the most common and one of the most complicated problems. The etiology and mechanism of action of the deformities have been well established. In order to best fix the deformity, the surgeon must have a good knowledge of the specific anatomy as well as the intricate biomechanics within the digits. The mechanism of action for the development of hammertoes, mallet toes and clawtoes has been established in the literature. It is beyond the scope of this article to expound on the anatomy and the etiology of ... continue reading

    Do islet cells hold promise in treating diabetes? Islet cells are groupings of hormone-secreting cells in the pancreas that are responsible for several endocrine functions including the production of insulin. Pancreatic islets contain four different types of cells including: insulin-producing beta cells, glucagon-releasing alpha cells, somatostatin-producing delta cells and cells that contain polypeptides (PP cells). Each individual islet contains approximately 1,000 of these four types of cells. ... continue reading

    The incorporation of an evidence-based approach in modern medicine is in line with Einstein’s comment that “The important thing is not to stop questioning.” The evolution of evidence-based medicine requires curiosity and a hunger for knowledge. Often, searching for answers only raises more questions and this is certainly the case with deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Research in the area of DVT has resulted in a wealth of knowledge in the medical and general surgical arenas. Unfortunately, little has been written about DVT within the podiatric literature. Orthopedic writings on DVT prop... continue reading
