Tibial sesamoid planing is often used for the treatment of tibial sesamoiditis and intractable plantar keratosis. This presentation will review the literature and present the details of a retrospective study of patients who have undergone tibial sesamoid planing.


Departmental database revealed 46 patients who have undergone tibial sesamoid planing between May 1996 to Sept 2009. These patients were invited for an audit appointment, to assess outcomes both subjective and objective.


Study is ongoing.


There is a lack of evidence pertaining to this treatment in the literature.

Clinical and radiological data, pre and post-operative AOFAS scores, along with patient centred outcomes will be reported.
