Abstract

Tarsal tunnel surgery complicated with ganglia or any other type of cystic mass can be a very challenging operation. Preoperative planning before any tarsal tunnel surgery involving a soft-tissue mass is imperative. Plans to reconstruct the posterior tibial nerve and/or artery should be in place. The authors will present a case study that involved tarsal tunnel syndrome with an associated ganglion in the tarsal canal. They will review what microsurgical techniques and equipment should be on hand prior to performing this complicated surgical procedure.
