Summary of ""Posterior Tibial Nerve" or "Tibial Nerve"? Improving the reporting in health papers."

The primary objective of this study is to identify which term is the most appropriate to use according to anatomical nomenclature: "posterior tibial nerve" or "tibial nerve." Furthermore, this paper intends to show how the use of these terms in papers indexed in important health databases is numerous and to describe the anatomical characteristics of such nerve, to improve future scientific publications.

Dimensional Changes of the Tibial Nerve and Tarsal Tunnel in Different Ankle Joint Positions in Asymptomatic Subjects.

The tarsal tunnel is a clinically important fibrous osseous conduit for the tibial nerve and associated tendons. It is mechanically dynamic, and normal ankle movements appear to change the tunnel shap...

The use of an asymmetrical tibial tray in TKA optimises tibial rotation when fitted to the posterior tibial plateau border.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the suitability of positioning an asymmetrical tibial tray relative to the posterior tibial edge and to analyse the relationship between the posterior fit and tib...

Do Failure of Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation Precludes to Use Sacral Neuromodulation in Patient With Overactive Bladder?

To evaluate the outcomes of sacral neuromodulation (SNM) after failure of transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation (TPTNS) in patients with overactive bladder (OAB).

Ultrasound-Guided Posterior Tibial Nerve Block for Plantar Foot Foreign Body Removal.

Ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia is a growing modality within the pediatric emergency department. Here we present a case where a posterior tibial nerve block was used for anesthesia during foreig...

Transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation in children and adolescents with functional constipation: A protocol for an interventional study.

A vast majority of children with functional constipation respond to the standard medical treatment. However, a subset of patients may present with an unsatisfactory response and only minor improvement...

Efficiency of Neurostimulation of Tibial Nerve in the Treatment of Low Anterior Resection Syndrome

The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of the Neuroestimulation of the Posterior Tibial Nerve for the treatment of this syndrome. A multicentric, prospective, randomized stud...

Tibial Nerve Versus Sciatic Nerve Block

The purpose of this study is to analyse the ability to selectively block the posterior tibial nerve sparing the function of the common peritoneal nerve. To assess the efficacy of blocking...

Ultrasound Guided Single Shot Block of Posterior Tibial Nerve for Postoperative Pain Relief After Hallux Valgus Surgery

Hallux surgery is known to be extremely painful. Standard pain therapy is treatment with NSAID and opioid painkillers. Patients are frequently not-satisfied with this. Some institutions us...

Tibial Nerve Stimulation for Faecal Incontinence

The purpose of this study is to determine whether tibial nerve stimulation is an effective treatment for faecal incontinence.

Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation vs. Sham

The overall goal of this research is to determine the efficacy of a sham for posterior tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS). This novel design is needed in order to have a sham treatment that i...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Disease of the TIBIAL NERVE (also referred to as the posterior tibial nerve). The most commonly associated condition is the TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. However, LEG INJURIES; ISCHEMIA; and inflammatory conditions (e.g., COLLAGEN DISEASES) may also affect the nerve. Clinical features include PARALYSIS of plantar flexion, ankle inversion and toe flexion as well as loss of sensation over the sole of the foot. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p32)

Disease or damage involving the SCIATIC NERVE, which divides into the PERONEAL NERVE and TIBIAL NERVE (see also PERONEAL NEUROPATHIES and TIBIAL NEUROPATHY). Clinical manifestations may include SCIATICA or pain localized to the hip, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of posterior thigh muscles and muscles innervated by the peroneal and tibial nerves, and sensory loss involving the lateral and posterior thigh, posterior and lateral leg, and sole of the foot. The sciatic nerve may be affected by trauma; ISCHEMIA; COLLAGEN DISEASES; and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1363)

The medial terminal branch of the sciatic nerve. The tibial nerve fibers originate in lumbar and sacral spinal segments (L4 to S2). They supply motor and sensory innervation to parts of the calf and foot.

Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot. (From Foot Ankle 1990;11(1):47-52)

A nerve which originates in the lumbar and sacral spinal cord (L4 to S3) and supplies motor and sensory innervation to the lower extremity. The sciatic nerve, which is the main continuation of the sacral plexus, is the largest nerve in the body. It has two major branches, the TIBIAL NERVE and the PERONEAL NERVE.
