Abstract

Sharing insights from their experience as well as the literature, these authors maintain that the percutaneous plantar fasciotomy offers a shorter operative time, reduced complications and facilitates an earlier return to work in comparison to the open fasciotomy with heel resection.

Noting that heel spur resection may be necessary for pain relief, these authors note that advances with the percutaneous incision approach, proper technique and instrumentation can help minimize complications with heel spur resection.
