1) Stenting: this is where a mesh tube is inserted into a blood vessel to hold it open and prevent restriction of blood flow
2) Bypass Surgery: where blood flow is diverted around major arteries that are narrow or partially blocked. A healthy blood vessel is taken from another part of the body and attached above and below the affected area so that the blood flow diverts around the blockage
3) Anti-coagulants and anti-platelet therapy: These can help in the short time but are associated with a high recurrence rate of blue toe syndrome
This is not the case with the subtalar joint and its immediate surroundings. An analogy of sorts could be drawn between the different motions that are possible in the region of the subtalar joint and the sinus tarsi and the many-body problem in physics, a problem that is virtually impossible to solve. To put it another way, it would require the power of a computer to simulate the ranges of motion possible in the subtalar region, but providing a computer with the information it would need to yield an accurate simulation of those movements would still be a significant challenge.
