    AVN of sesamoid = offload, then sesamoidectomy

    ...there was a recent article on this in FAI. It credited Renander for the tibial.

    Some additional AVN Eponyms besides the ones already listed:

    Femoral head - Chandler's
    Greater trochanter - Mandl
    Intercondylar spines of the tibia - Caffey
    Tibial tubercle - Osgood-Schlatter
    Femoral condyles - Ahlback's
    Patella - Sinding-Larsen-Johansson

    Talus - Dias
    5th metatarsal base - Iselin's
    Proximal phalanges - Thiemann's

    At school, in addition to Kohler being the eponym for AVN of Navicular, I was also taught that Mueller-Weiss Syndrome is another eponym for AVN of Navicular in adults.

    does anyone else think that the only reason for these eponyms is pimping?

    You are right in that Legg Calve Perthes is another eponym for AVN of Femoral Head. However, Legg Calve Perthes' Disease usually applies to AVN of the Femoral Head in the child. Chandler's Disease applies to the AVN of the Femoral Head in the adult. Chandler's Disease refers to idiopathic AVN of femoral head and does not refer to the AVN of the femoral head due to hip fractures.

    Many of those eponyms were presented to me in school and in various externships. However, I learned about some of the eponyms in the knee and hip during my residency training. In my residency program, Podiatry residents also served as the Orthopedic residents at the hospital. I learned some of these eponyms as I interacted with the various Orthopedic attendings.

    In regards to AVN of Talus, it should be Dias and not Diaz.
