    Sinus tarsi syndrome was also described by Duchenne in the late 1860's. (It wasn't called that but he described pain in that location being relate to the position of the STJ.) It's always good to look at the anatomy, but you have to look at function and forces as well. In my opinion sinus tarsi pain is the result of end of range of motion of the joint resisting high external pronation moments.

    I use to Dx more Sinus Tarsi Syndromes then I do now. When I began performing Ankle Scopes about 10 years ago I started to appreciate how extensive ankle synovitis can be. I now think that some of the Sinus Tarsi I use to Dx may have in fact been ankle synovitis in the anteriolateral area.

    I have evacuated Sinus Tarsi's a few times. Difficult to say what the pathology might have been but they all did well! I would imagine when you remove all the contents of the Sinus Tarsi (nerve included) you'll most likely remove whatever was symptomatic.

  5. Here's the article that I submitted for publication to JAPMA 20 years ago where I first described the mechanical association between large magnitudes of subtalar joint pronation moments and sinus tarsi syndrome (Kirby KA: Rotational equilibrium across the subtalar joint axis. JAPMA, 79: 1-14, 1989).
