Abstract

The authors describe common modes of failure in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with peroneal intraneural ganglia. Illustrated examples correlate the modes of failure and the diagnostic or surgical errors. Understanding these pitfalls reinforces the rationale behind current treatment recommendations as outlined in the companion article. Avoiding these pitfalls will ultimately improve outcomes.
