Free composite groin flap to solve a complex loss of tissue in a traumatic injury of the foot: A case report.

Injury 2018 Dec 3;49 Suppl 4:S25-S28. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

University of Turin, Orthopaedic Clinic, C.T.O. Hospital, Turin, Italy.

Severe traumatic losses of soft tissues and bone at foot and ankle level are often treated by means of amputation, but this may involve important psychological and anatomic consequences for the patient. If there are good vascular conditions, reconstruction by means of composite free flaps is often the only alternative to this demolitive treatment. The transfer of composite free flaps that include vascularized bone from various donor sites may provide anatomical reconstruction and recovery of function of the foot and ankle. Read More

Percutaneous screw fixation for painful non-union of lateral malleolus ankle fractures.

Injury 2018 Oct 16;49(10):1936-1941. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Royal Cornwall Hospital, Penventinnie Lane, Truro, TR1 3LJ, United Kingdom.

Introduction: Lateral malleolus non-union can cause pain and loss of function. Standard treatment involves open approach with debridement, bone-grafting and plate stabilisation, with published surgical site infection rates to 17%. To minimise the risk of soft tissue complications and allow early mobilisation, we describe a technique for percutaneous cannulated screw stabilisation. Read More

Subtalar Joint Biomechanics: From Normal to Pathologic.

Foot Ankle Clin 2018 Sep 3;23(3):341-352. Epub 2018 Jul 3.

Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA.

Subtalar joint biomechanics are primarily driven by the shape of the articulations with contributions from the surrounding soft tissues. The joint motion occurs about a single axis oriented medially and superiorly. Joint contact forces change during different stages of gait and are affected by hindfoot alignment and traumatic alterations to their normal anatomy. Read More

The role of biologic in foot and ankle trauma-a review of the literature.

Curr Rev Musculoskelet Med 2018 Sep;11(3):495-502

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Pittsburgh, 3471 Fifth Avenue, Suite 1011, Pittsburgh, PA, 15213, USA.

Purpose Of Review: The use of biologics in orthopedics is becoming increasingly popular as an adjuvant in healing musculoskeletal injuries. Though many biologics involved in the management of foot and ankle injuries are used based on physician preference, reports of improved outcomes when combined with standard operative treatment has led to further clinical interest especially in foot and ankle trauma.

Recent Findings: The most recent studies have shown benefits for biologic use in patients predisposed to poor bone and soft tissue healing. Read More

Retrograde Hindfoot Nailing for Acute Trauma.

Curr Rev Musculoskelet Med 2018 Sep;11(3):439-444

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, 3471 Fifth Avenue, 911 Kaufmann Building, Pittsburgh, PA, 15213, USA.

Purpose Of Review: The role of retrograde hindfoot nailing in the treatment of acute orthopedic trauma is explored.

Recent Findings: Tibio-talar calcaneal (TTC) nailing is an acceptable treatment alternative for the low-demand geriatric patient with peri-articular ankle trauma permitting immediate weight-bearing with low rates of complication and return to functionality. Hindfoot nailing can be used for limb salvage in the younger active patient; yet, joint-preserving reconstruction is preferred when feasible. Read More
