Tarsal Tunnel Varicosities: MRI
Patient presented with tunnel sign and compression test positivie. MRI revealed varicosties in relation to the tarsal tunnel in relation to the flexor digitorum longus & flexor hallucis, needs clinical correlation for tarsal tunnel symptoms.
Perhaps one of the greatest values of MRI in evaluating suspected tarsal tunnel syndrome is its potential to document varicosities or dilated veins within the tarsal tunnel. Venous insufficiency is often a contributing factot to tarsal tunnel syndrome and tarsal tunnel decompression surgery often includes ligation of enlarged, tortuous veins
