Astym therapy: a systematic review.

Ann Transl Med 2019 Feb;7(4):70

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, NY, USA.

Soft tissue dysfunction can result from the degeneration of tissues as in the case of degenerative tendinopathy or from the build-up of problematic scar tissue, which can be the result of several aggravating factors, including overuse injuries, acute or chronic trauma, or as a result of surgery. This dysfunction often results in impaired movement, pain, and swelling of the affected area, which can lead to patient dissatisfaction and a lower quality of life. These soft tissue dysfunctions also have a marked economic impact. Read More

Radiologic Evaluation of Lower Leg, Ankle, and Foot Fracture Fixation Hardware.

Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 2019 Apr 29;23(2):e36-e55. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona.

Radiologists should be familiar with basic principles of fracture fixation and the normal imaging appearances of implant constructs and their complications. The surgeon's selection of external fixation, intramedullary nail fixation, open reduction and internal fixation, or some combination depends on patient factors, fracture configuration, injury to the soft tissue envelope, and surgeon experience. Complications including loss of fixation with resultant malalignment, nonunion, infection, and posttraumatic osteoarthritis present additional challenges for the surgeon as well as the radiologist.

Avulsion fracture of anterior talofibular ligament from talus: A case report.

Foot (Edinb) 2018 Dec 5;38:24-29. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Antalya Education and Research Hospital, Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Antalya, Turkey. Electronic address:

Anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) injuries can occur in three different distinct patterns; rupture of the ligament as a pure soft tissue injury, an avulsion fracture at the ATFL's attachment to either the fibula or the talus. Although fibular avulsion fractures are common, avulsion fracture of ATFL from talus is extremely rare with a single previously reported case in the current literature. A 34-year-old female with ATFL talar avulsion fracture associated with medial malleolar fracture was presented to the emergency department. Read More

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

Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ) 2018 Oct;47(10)

University of California, Davis, Department of Orthopaedics, 3301 C St, Ste 1700, Sacramento, CA 95816, USA. Email:

The ankle is one of the most commonly injured joints in soccer and represents a significant cost to the healthcare system. The ligaments that stabilize the ankle joint determine its biomechanics-alterations of which result from various soccer-related injuries. Acute sprains are among the most common injury in soccer players and are generally treated conservatively, with emphasis placed on secondary prevention to reduce the risk for future sprains and progression to chronic ankle instability.
