Relationship of Cuboid Height to Plantar Ulceration and Other Radiographic Parameters in Midfoot Charcot Neuroarthropathy

The objective of the present investigation was to examine the effect of cuboid height on the presence of plantar midfoot ulceration and the relationship of cuboid height to other commonly performed radiographic parameters during evaluation of midfoot Charcot neuroarthropathy. A retrospective analysis was performed of 68 feet in 60 subjects who met the inclusion criteria. We did not observe statistically significant differences in the presence of a plantar midfoot ulceration when considering a cuboid height threshold of 0.0 mm, 2.0 mm, −2.0 mm, or −5.0 mm nor was the cuboid height a robust predictor for the presence of plantar midfoot ulceration when considering the positive predictive value, negative predictive value, sensitivity, or specificity.
