Ethanol ablation Morton’s Neuroma

A Morton’s neuroma is frequently considered to be a result of repetitive compression upon the common plantar digital nerve most frequently involving the third web space of the forefoot, and less commonly the second web space. Whatever the underlying aetiology may be; the end result is “perineural fibrosis of the common plantar digital nerve”. This leads to swelling of the digital nerve and the reproduction of a severe intermittent pain to the toes, especially during the toe – off phase of walking and running.
