Top Articles The nail-fold excision procedure was first described by Vandenbos and Bowers in 1959 in the US Armed Forces Medical Journal. 10 The procedure consists of an excision of the lateral and/or medial nail-fold leaving a soft tissue defect to close by secondary intention Excision of the lateral nail plate combined with lateral matricectomy is thought to provide the best chance for eradication. The lateral aspect of the nail plate is removed with preservation of the.. Among them, 57 patients were previously treated by nail avulsions, 41 patients were treated by soft-tissue nail-fold excision, 13 patients were treated by chemical matricectomy, and 27 patients were treated by surgical matricectomy
This is done by incising the length of nail adjacent to the inflamed nail fold, removing attachments of the nail to the skin using an eponychium retractor, and then its gentle removal from the nail fold using forceps (Fig. 1). At CHEO, only electrocautery is used to ablate the exposed nail matrix to prevent the re-growth of the nail The nail matrix is intimately attached to the base of the terminal phalanx, and with its widening it becomes uncurved proximally which automatically causes overcurving distally. The heaped-up distal portion of the nail bed pulls the soft tissue up resulting in a traction osteophyte [ . 17 Recent research suggests that the Vandenbos technique results in very low or zero recurrence rates (see below) and provides an alternative surgical option for ingrown toenails. 8, 1

dement of the granulomatous tissue, a wedge-shaped ellipsis of skin and subcutaneous tissue, lateral to the affected nail fold, is removed. Approximation of the margins of the resulting defect determines eversion of the nail fold. One hundred twenty ingrown toenails were treated with the wedge excision of the nail fold at the outpatient clinic of the department of plastic surgery, Campus Bio. The perionychium refers to the nail and surrounding structures including the hyponychium, nail bed and nail fold. Eponychium refers to the soft tissue proximally on the dorsum of nail continuing to the dorsal skin. The fine filamentous material attaching nail to eponychial fold is the nail vest.

Figure 9.44 (a, b) Removal of overgrown distal soft tissue. mouth' incision is carried out parallel to the distal groove around the tip of the toe, starting and ending 3-5 mm proximal to the end of the lateral nail fold The Vandenbos procedure, also known as soft-tissue nail fold excision, was first described in 1958 by Kermit Q. Vandenbos, a surgeon for the US Air Force. He felt that overgrown toe skin was the primary causative factor in onychocryptosis Hypertrophy of nail fold Pincer/Involuted nail Characterized by an overgrowth of soft tissue of the internal portion of the lateral nail fold. Hypertrophy of lateral nail fold. Nail plate displays an excessive curvature, especially in distal portion Involves sharp partial or total excision of the nail matrix and/or the nail bed. Cold. Partial nail excision was carried out by applying tourniquet at base of the big toe to ensure a relatively dry dissecting area. About fourth to fifth part of nail plate was removed on the affected side of nail fold to expose the germinal matrix (Figure-2 and 3)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of the nail-fold excision procedure in children. STUDY DESIGN Prospectively collected data on patients less than 18 years of age who underwent a nail-fold excision for symptomatic ingrown toenail were analyzed. Patients were seen in 2 centers and data collected included demographics, site of ingrown toenail, complications (including recurrence), patient. separate the soft tissue from the ingrown part of the nail.

Normally, there is a 0.5- to 1-mm space between the lateral nail fold and the lateral margin of the nail. The nail fold, which is lined with a thin layer of epithelium, is sufficiently wide to avoid irritation from the nail Clinically, they manifest as a painless soft tissue mass, oftentimes having been present for many years. They can be found on either the dorsal or volar side of the hand or digit. Most commonly they are found on the volar aspect of the digit, at the level of the proximal phalanx ( Fig. 24-9 )
Ingrowing toenails of greater severity or associated with gross deformation or disease of the nail, or ingrowing nails recalcitrant to treatment, may require radical nail bed excision.

By Mehmet Erdil and Mehmet Isyar. A study on the surgical treatment of ingrowing toe nail with nail excision with chemical matricectomy versus nail excision alone A 62-year-old man presented for evaluation of a slowly growing, nonpainful nodule on the first proximal toenail fold of the right foot of 6 years' duration. He reported that the nail plate of the affected toe was thickened and malaligned. He denied a history of trauma. Physical examination revealed a 2.0×1.6-cm, flesh-colored, nontender, well-defined, rubbery nodule with prominent overlying.
Whether the primary fault is in the nail itself or in the adjacent soft tissues of the nail continues to be a topic for debate. The lateral nail folds are penetrated by the edge of the nail plate resulting in pain, edema and sepsis.1,2 This eventually leads to growth of granulation tissue which covers the medial and lateral border of the nail The nail plate is anchored in place by the nail bed and phalangeal bone, and the surrounding lateral nail folds, proximal nail fold and eponychium. The nail matrix plays a pivotal role in the production of hard keratins of the nail plate. It is compartmentalized into proximal and distal nail matrix. The latter is located under the lunula The nail is a plate of keratin that covers the dorsal aspect of the distal phalanges of the fingers and toes (Figure 1). The nail plate (which, in layman's terms, is the nail itself) is a hard sheet of translucent keratin in which lie several layers of dead, compacted cells. The nail bed is the tissue that lies beneath the nail plate -Laser incision and/or excision of soft tissue for the performance of upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty. -Laser incision and/or excision of soft tissue for the creation of recipient sites for hair transplantation Podiatry -Laser ablation, vaporization, and/or excision of soft tissue for the reduction, removal, and/or treatment of

Malignant porocarcinoma of the nail fold: A diagnosis of an ingrown toe nail was made by his primary care physician and was treated by surgical excision of the nail and of the granulation tissue. Four months later the patient's symptoms recurred with reappearance of the granulation tissue and polypoid growth and ulceration with swelling of. A simple method of treatment for ingrowing toenail by radical excision of the affected nailfold is described. The results in a prospective series of 50 patients are presented. This procedure, first described in 1872, does not destroy the nail, which heals to give an excellent cosmetic result. The recurrence rate after 18 months was 20 per cent, which compares favourably with procedures in. First is to remove nail fold and normal soft tissue on border with nail fold and another is to remove wedge of soft tissue on the side of a toe without removing a nail fold. When this wedge is closed using sutures it will pull the skin form the ingrown nail and in that way increase the space between nail and skin and it will enable drainage In one week, remove the occlusive tape dressing, gently pare away the soft tissue, wash the digit and nail using antiseptic or saline, and repeat steps 1 to 4 above. Once all the diseased or thickened nail plate has been removed after 3 to 6 weeks, the dressings can be removed and the chemical nail avulsion has been completed

Surgical treatment of in-growing toenails performed by senior house oﬃcers: are they good enough?. More radical measures have included the classic wedge excision as described by Watson-Cheyne4 which involved extensive excision of soft tissue and the ZadikSprocedure. The use of phenol for the treatment of ingrowing toenails has not gained wide acceptance by the medical profession, yet according to podiatric literate it is an effective and. Nail surgery can be divided into two basic categories: excision of the pathologic or undesirable tissue by use of sharp instrumentation, or destruction of the patho-logic tissue by physical means such as chemicals, freezing, electrogalvanism, burring, or lasering. Cur-rently, the procedures most popular and most regu-larly performed are chemical
This condition is caused by a combination of extrinsic and intrinsic factors, such as poorly fitting shoes, improperly trimmed nails, tight socks, excessive sweating, soft tissue abnormalities of the toe, and inherent nail deformity.9 Normal nails vary greatly in shape, and the nail walls are adaptable to marked curvature of the nails. OPEN fractures (with the elevation of the nail plate superficial to the eponychial fold) are treated with nail plate elevation, removal of interposed soft tissue (usually germinal matrix), reduction, and nailbed repair. Replacement of the nail plate beneath the nail fold is sufficient bony stabilization granulation tissue and lateral nail fold hyper-trophy. A wide range of conservative and surgical methods are available for the treat-ment of Ingrown toe nail. These options in-clude simple incision & drainage of the ab-scess, the partial nail excision (we dge resec-tion), nail avulsion and radical excision
Wedge excision: CPT ® code 11765 describes removal of the inflamed tissue adjacent to the nail and a section of the nail itself, along the whole length of the nail. It is used as a treatment of a nail bed that has been injured due to laceration, crush, or avulsion, or for pain caused by an ingrown toenail Operative technique, step by step. A. A severe ingrown toenail with granulation tissue and nail fold hypertrophy. B-C. Ingrown part of the nail was dissected and separated from the nail bed and nail matrix by a small mosquito clamp. D.
