Treatment of forefoot ulcers with tendon lengthenings.

Abstract
Forefoot ulcers are a common complication of neuropathy. Trans-tibial amputation too often becomes necessary when progressive infection develops secondary to ulcers of the forefoot. Tendon lengthening appears to be an effective treatment for plantar forefoot ulcers in patients with neuropathy and forefoot ulceration.
