Orthopaedic help please
Subject: Orthopaedic help please

I am doing orthopaedic surgery work.  I am not used to this specialty.  Dictator keeps saying s/l ILL-ee-oh-SO-lus muscle.  I cannot verify this.  The closest I can find is the soleus muscle.  Can anyone help me verify this?
ORTHOPAEDIC HELP??!!
Subject: ORTHOPAEDIC HELP??!!

The patient has tenderness throughout the Achilles tendon from the musculotendinous junction to its insertion site.  He does not have any pain over the ____ (SOUNDS LIKE 'OWLSCOWLISIS' OR 'ASCOWLISIS').  There is not any restriction in dorsiflexion, plantar flexion, inversion, or eversion.


I have looked everywhere online - articles and pictures with diagrams - the only thing I've found that comes close is hallucis ... but what is he saying before it?  It doesn't sound like abductor, flexor, or extensor.


Any suggestions???


Thanks!  Jenni
