What Is Plantar Calcaneal Enthesophyte?

October 16th 2010 06:12
What Is Plantar Calcaneal Enthesophyte? A plantar calcaneal enthesophyte is a growth that occurs at the place where a tendon inserts into the heel bone on the bottom of the foot.

The enthesophyte growth is osseous or bony in nature. It is called a spur. Enthesophytes naturally begin to expand at an enthesis, or point of tendon or ligament attachment. Enthesophytes then enter the tissue of the attached tendon or ligament.

Plantar calcaneal enthesophytes take place at the calcaneal attachment point of the flexor digitorum brevis a muscle that moves the big toe sideways away from the rest of the toes. They also take place above the sturdy tissue that lines the bottom of the foot and sometimes in this tissue.
