The Use of Collagen Injections in the Treatment of Metatarsalgia: A Case Report.
Summary of "The Use of Collagen Injections in the Treatment of Metatarsalgia: A Case Report."
Metatarsalgia is an increasingly common condition seen in the outpatient setting. A number of conservative and surgical management options are available for this condition. We present an interesting case that was unsuccessfully treated with'dermal filler.' To our knowledge, we have not found any published material in peer-reviewed journals documenting the use of collagen injections in the treatment of metatarsalgia. The authors feel that the lesson learned from this case should be highlighted for other foot and ankle surgeons.

Collagen Type V
A fibrillar collagen found widely distributed as a minor component in tissues that contain COLLAGEN TYPE I and COLLAGEN TYPE III. It is a heterotrimeric molecule composed of alpha1(V), alpha2(V) and alpha3(V) subunits. Several forms of collagen type V exist depending upon the composition of the subunits that form the trimer.

Injections introduced directly into localized lesions.
Injections made into a vein for therapeutic or experimental purposes.
Injections into the lymph nodes or the lymphatic system.
