Osteochondral injury of the talus can be challenging to treat because the damaged articular cartilage has a poor intrinsic reparative capability. Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation has become an effective means for treating persistent cartilage lesions that fail to respond to routine ankle arthroscopy. The purpose of this study was to assess ...

In rickets patients, limb deformities are usually multiapical and complex even with medical treatment; residual deformities remain necessitating surgical correction. In our study we aim to compare the results of correction of lower limb deformities, in rickets patients, treated with circular external fixator versus fixator-assisted intra-medullary nail. Seventeen rickets patients, ...

Hallux rigidus is a common problem characterized by localized osteoarthritis and limited range of motion of the hallux. First metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis has been the accepted procedure for the treatment of late-stage disease. Despite the success of arthrodesis, some patients object to the notion of eliminating motion at the metatarsophalangeal ...

The treatment of rigid equinocavovarus foot deformities caused by neurologic disorders is often difficult and relapse is common. We asked whether the Ilizarov technique could be used for correction of neurologic equinocavovarus foot deformities resulting in improved foot and ankle function and patient satisfaction. The neurologic equinocavovarus foot deformities of ...

Several conservative as well as surgical methods are used for the treatment of ingrown toenails until date. The conservative methods are either based on nail splinting or on orthonyxia, but no methods employing both principles have been reported thus far. Moreover, surgical methods usually involve postoperative pain, prolonged wound healing ...

First metatarsocuneiform arthrodesis (Lapidus procedure) can provide powerful correction of mild to moderate hypermobile or severe hallux valgus, although a period of non-weight bearing may be necessary. The purpose of this retrospective investigation was to compare patients who underwent a modified Lapidus arthrodesis with 2 screws plus an additional "neutralization" ...

Triple arthrodesis is commonly used to correct complex deformity with hindfoot valgus. The authors use an isolated medial incisional approach for subtalar and talonavicular joint arthrodesis to correct hindfoot deformity, including high degrees of hindfoot valgus. To assess outcomes achieved with this approach, we reviewed the records of 45 patients ...

The modified Lapidus arthrodesis involves fusion of the first tarsometatarsal, which typically takes about 6 weeks to consolidate. Postoperative protocols typically involve non-weight bearing until bone consolidation occurs, however, with a stable fixation construct, protected weight bearing can be initiated earlier than 6 weeks into the postoperative period. Studies specifically ...

Despite the appearance of new-generation, mobile-bearing, cementless prostheses, total ankle arthroplasty remains controversial. Among the criteria guiding the choice between arthrodesis and arthroplasty, the long-term survival and postoperative function are of critical importance. The mobile-bearing Salto prosthesis has been used in Europe since 1997, but only 2 to 5 years ...

The Saltzman-el-Khoury hindfoot alignment view (HAV) is considered the gold standard for assessing the axis from hindfoot to tibia. However, it is unclear whether radiographic alignment influences dynamic load distribution during gait. We evaluated varus-valgus alignment by the HAV and its influence on dynamic load distribution in ankle and tibiotalocalcaneal ...

A three-part ankle replacement was developed to achieve compatibility with the natural ligaments by allowing fibers on the medial and lateral sides to remain isometric during passive motion. Unlike all current prostheses, the new design uses nonanatomically shaped components on the tibia and talus and a fully conforming interposed meniscal ...

Isolated subtalar disorders often require subtalar arthrodesis. In this retrospective study of 28 in situ subtalar arthrodeses reviewed with a median follow-up of 56 months (range, 20-115), the authors attempted to detail the outcomes of in situ subtalar fusion, the consequences on adjacent joints and to determine clinical or radiological ...

Each cell in the body possesses hundreds to thousands of mitochondria, known as 'powerhouses' for the energy they provide. But gene mutations can cause these important organelles to fail, often resulting in devastating disease. Erica Westly reports on the patient advocates--and politicians--pushing for new treatments for mitochondrial disease.

A retrocalcaneal bursitis is caused by repetitive impingement of the bursa between the Achilles tendon and the posterosuperior calcaneus. The bursa is situated in the posteroinferior corner of Kager's triangle (retrocalcaneal recess), which is a radiolucency with sharp borders on the lateral radiograph of the ankle. If there is inflammation, ...

To prevent amputation, achieving successfull ankle artrodesis in diabetic Charcot arthropaty patients is very important. As a salvage procedure, we have used a 95-degree-angled blade plate via a posterior approach to achieve tibiocalcaneal arthrodesis. Between 2006 and 2008, four diabetic patients with hindfoot Charcot arthropathy underwent talectomy and tibiocalcaneal arthrodesis ...

There is a paucity of objective information in the literature about first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) hemiarthroplasty. The authors postulate that it is a reasonable treatment option for severe hallux rigidus in selected patients. Twenty-two elective first MTP hemiarthroplasties were performed on 20 patients that met the inclusion criteria. Pre- and postoperative ...

Arthroscopic debridement is a well-accepted method of removing osseous and/or soft tissue impingement from the ankle joint. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first case series reporting the outcomes following arthroscopic resection of anteromedial impingement. The authors report the results at a minimum 2-year follow-up of ...

Proximal humeral fracture fixation has a high incidence of complications especially when pins are used in elderly patients. In 2005, we introduced a new technique that augmented osteosutures by using 2.5-mm fully threaded pins and an external fixator (hybrid technique). The purpose of this study is to compare the outcomes ...

The manipulation and corrective cast application for club foot was known to be done by Kite's method. The Kite's method of manipulation (center of rotation of malaligned foot and fulcrum on cuboid) was modified by Ponseti (fulcrum on head of talus). Recently, Ponseti's method has gained popularity and vastly improved ...

Compared with other surgical procedures for hallux rigidus, dorsal cheilectomy involves relatively less bone removal, maintains joint motion, and leaves the potential for further salvage surgery. The Manchester-Oxford Foot and Ankle Questionnaire (MOXFQ) has a maximum score of 64 (worst foot health) and has been endorsed by the British Foot ...

Cheilectomy is performed as treatment for hallux rigidus. Its aim is the relief of pain and improvement of function. Previous pedobarograhic studies have revealed that osteoarthritis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint leads to a lateralisation of peak forces during the stance phase of gait. This occurs since the big toe ...
