All-inside endoscopic anatomic reconstruction leads to satisfactory functional outcomes in patients with chronic ankle instability.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2020 Jun 30. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

Ramsay Santé, Clinique du Sport Paris V, Paris, France.

Purpose: Ankle sprain is a common injury that can be treated conservatively, though many injured patients do not seek treatment or are not adequately managed, both of which can lead to subsequent chronic ankle instability (CAI). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional scores and complication rates of an all-inside anatomic reconstruction technique to treat CAI at a minimum follow-up of 24 months.

Methods: The authors retrospectively collected the records of 41 patients that underwent all-inside endoscopic anatomic reconstruction of the ATFL and CFL including demographics, complications, satisfaction, American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) score, Karlsson score, and ankle activity score (AAS), at a minimum follow-up of 24 months.

Innovative Surgical Planning in Resecting Soft Tissue Sarcoma of the Foot Using Augmented Reality With a Smartphone.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2020 Jun 3. Epub 2020 Jun 3.

Specialist, Department of Radiation Oncology, King Hussein Cancer Center, Amman, Jordan.

Augmented or hybrid reality is a display technology that combines the real world with the virtual world; it permits digital images of preoperative planning information to be combined with the surgeon's view of the real world. Augmented reality (AR) can increase the surgeon's intraoperative vision by providing virtual transparency of the real patient and has been applied to a wide spectrum of orthopedic procedures, such as tumor resection, fracture fixation, arthroscopy, and component's alignment in total joint arthroplasty. We present a case of a male patient who presented with pain in the medial aspect of his left foot after he underwent an incomplete mass excision elsewhere where it turned out to be synovial sarcoma.

Thomas I Sherman

Arthroscopy 2020 06;36(6):1722-1724

Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

The surgical management of ankle fractures can be an unforgiving endeavor. Subtle malreductions in fracture fragments lead to significant deviations in joint reactive forces and, consequently, accelerated arthritis. The diagnosis of associated ligamentous pathology, such as deltoid and syndesmotic injuries, is often difficult and ideal surgical management is debated. Read More

Comparison of autologous osteoperiosteal cylinder and osteochondral graft transplantation in the treatment of large cystic osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs): a protocol for a non-inferiority randomised controlled trial.

BMJ Open 2020 02 9;10(2):e033850. Epub 2020 Feb 9.

Institute of Sports Medicine, Peking University Third Hospital, Beijing, China

Introduction: Large cystic osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs) have been shown to have inferior clinical outcomes after reparative techniques such as bone marrow stimulation. Autologous osteochondral transplantation has been viewed as an alternative choice for treating these lesions, but donor-site morbidity has limited its application. Excellent clinical outcomes have been shown in repairing these types of lesions with autologous osteoperiosteal grafts, and these outcomes are achieved at a low cost and without donor-site morbidity in the normal knee joint.
