(Medical Transcription Sample Report)
Informed consent was obtained from the patient. The patient was placed in the supine position. The Morton's neuroma was localized by careful palpation and was found to be between the 3rd and 4th metatarsal space. The area was cleaned and subsequently a 25 gauge needle was inserted half way between the MTP heads and advanced in a vertical position down through the transverse metatarsal ligament. 0.5 mL of Depo-Medrol and 0.5 mL of 0.25% Marcaine were injected at this site after aspiration. Postprocedure no complications were noted. Pressure was applied for a period of two minutes and a small dressing applied.
POST PROCEDURE INSTRUCTIONS: The patient has been asked to report to us any redness, swelling, inflammation, or fevers. The patient has been asked to restrict the use of the * extremity for the next 24 hours.
