  • On examination:
    • The remains of a VP are evident overlying the L/2nd MTPJ.
    • Training shoes are in excellent condition and appropriate.
    • Pain on palpation of the L/2nd MTPJ region
what are our objectives
What are our objectives?
  • Treat necrotic lesion with cryotherapy to remove the VP.
  • Ensure maintenance of tissue vitality for healing.
  • Redistribute weight from area.
  • Provide comfort & reduce pain to enable ADLs/employment.

  • U’d to remove weight from an area (eg. A lesion).
  • Replaceable form
    • Durability/ longevity
    • Ease of use
    • Reduces sweat absorption
    • Patient is young & flexible
    • Patient has appropriate footwear
to make a replaceable pad
To make a replaceable pad…
  • Cut and shape the pad desired – remember to cut the pad so that the adhesive backing is facing away from the foot.
  • Cut your Lastonet™ toe strap & met. strap making sure you don’t occlude the dorsalis pedis artery nor deform the digits.
  • Fit your Lastonet straps to the pad’s adhesive backing.
  • Cover the straps and adhesive side with tape (ZnO or E.A.P) to secure straps and to protect pad.

Case Study No. 5
  • Ms. K is a 49 year old sales assistant at David Jones. She is on her feet all day and must wear metbusters. She complains of a painful interdigital Heloma Molle.
  • On examination:
    • HM b/n the R/4th & 5th toes.
    • On palpation there is an exostosis on the medial aspect of the head of the R/5th proximal phalanx at the IPJ (this has also been confirmed on x-ray).
what are our objectives9
What are our objectives?
  • Reduce pain
  • Prevent recurrence
  • Remediate/ remove the cause
    • Footwear
    • Exostosis
interdigital silicone wedge
Interdigital Silicone Wedge
  • Cushions the exostosis
  • Keeps the involved toes apart
silicone
Silicone
  • Putty or paste form to which a catalyst is added.
  • Catalyst promotes cross-linking of polysiloxane chains in the putty.
  • After a period of time, flexible solid is formed.
to make a silicone device
To make a silicone device…
  • Don’t wear gloves – the putty will stick.
  • Ascertain the amount of silicone putty needed to make the device – best to start with too much.
  • Roll the silicone putty into a ball and then flatten a little in the palm of the hand.
  • Add enough catalyst – too little and it won’t set firm; too much and it will set very quickly.
