Late Effects of Clubfoot Deformity in Adolescent and Young Adult Patients Whose Initial Treatment Was an Extensive Soft-tissue Release: Topic Review and Clinical Case Series.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg Glob Res Rev 2020 May;4(5):e1900126

From the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO (Dr. Johnson, Dr. Klein, Dr. McCormick, Dr. Dobbs, Dr. Gordon, Dr. Schoenecker); the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Dartmouth-Hitchcock School of Medicine, New Hampshire, NH (Dr. Fortney); and the Congress Orthopaedic Associates, Arcadia, CA (Dr. Luk).

Children with congenital clubfoot often have residual deformity, pain, and limited function in adolescence and young adulthood. These patients represent a heterogeneous group that often requires an individualized management strategy. This article reviews the available literature on this topic while proposing a descriptive classification system based on a review of patients at our institution who underwent surgery for problems related to previous clubfoot deformity during the period between January 1999 and January 2012.

First Metatarsal Rotation in Hallux Valgus Deformity.

Foot Ankle Int 2021 Apr 25;42(4):510-522. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

Department of Orthopaedics, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA.

Rotation of the first metatarsal (M1) as a potential etiological factor of hallux valgus (HV) deformity was described relatively early in the description of HV pathoanatomy. However, because biplanar radiographs have been the standard method for imaging HV, clinicians primarily developed measurement methods and corrective operations confined to 2 dimensions, medial-lateral and inferior-superior. Recently, as our understanding of HV pathoanatomy has further developed, aided in part by advanced imaging technology, M1 rotation about its axis ("axial rotation") and its implications for HV deformity and treatment has reemerged.

The metatarsaus adductus effect by the syndesmosis procedure for hallux valgus correction.

Bone Jt Open 2021 Mar;2(3):174-180

Department of Statistics & Actuarial Science, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China.

Aims: The purpose of this study is to examine the adductus impact on the second metatarsal by the nonosteotomy nonarthrodesis syndesmosis procedure for the hallux valgus deformity correction, and how it would affect the mechanical function of the forefoot in walking. For correcting the metatarsus primus varus deformity of hallux valgus feet, the syndesmosis procedure binds first metatarsal to the second metatarsal with intermetatarsal cerclage sutures.

Methods: We reviewed clinical records of a single surgical practice from its entire 2014 calendar year. Read More

Early Results of Immediate Weightbearing Following First Tarsometatarsal Joint Arthrodesis With Plantar Locking Plate and Dorsal Compression Screw.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2021 May-Jun;60(3):494-500. Epub 2020 Sep 30.

Attending Physician, Orthollinois, Rockford, IL.

Arthrodesis of the first tarsometatarsal joint (TMT1) reduces pathologic angles at the anatomic center of rotation of angulation and presents a substantial correction potential in 3 planes in the treatment of hallux abductovalgus. The optimal fixation method remains unclear since prevailing dorsomedial locking plates and/or compression screws depict elevated implant-associated complications. Medical records of 49 patients that underwent 53 TMT1 arthrodeses in hallux abductovalgus interventions were included. Read More

Anatomical reconstruction of first ray instability hallux valgus with a medial anatomical TMTJ1 plate.

Foot Ankle Surg 2020 Dec 5. Epub 2020 Dec 5.

Department of Trauma & Orthopaedics, St. Vincent's University Hospital, Elm Park, Dublin, D04 T6F4, Ireland.

Background: First tarsometatarsal joint (TMTJ1) arthrodesis is a powerful tool for hallux valgus correction. Past criticism of the TMTJ1 arthrodesis has focused on high non-union rates, and consequent need for delayed weightbearing as prevention. In this study we present a selection and treatment protocol to minimise non-union while allowing early weightbearing. Read More

The Lapidus Arthrodesis: Examining the Effect of the Metatarsal Base Transfixion Screw.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2021 Mar-Apr;60(2):333-338. Epub 2020 Nov 18.

Assistant Professor, Division of Foot and Ankle Surgery, Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine, Independence, OH.

The modified Lapidus bunionectomy is a useful and highly powerful procedure for correcting hallux abducto valgus. Traditionally reserved for "severe" deformities, this procedure has seen a recent resurgence in the podiatric community for its unique ability to achieve tri-planar correction of this challenging deformity. Although this procedure has been extensively studied in both biomechanical labs and the clinical arenas, no clear consensus has been achieved regarding optimal fixation for this thought-provoking procedure.

Minimally Invasive vs Open Akin Osteotomy.

Foot Ankle Int 2021 Mar 9;42(3):278-286. Epub 2020 Nov 9.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Martin Luther University Halle Wittenberg, Halle, Germany.

Background: Minimally invasive techniques of Akin osteotomy have grown in popularity, as early results suggest faster recovery, earlier return to work, and minimized wound healing problems. Preserving lateral cortex integrity during first phalanx osteotomy thereby presents a challenge because of the lack of direct visual control. This retrospective comparative study investigated clinical and radiographic outcomes of minimally invasive and open Akin osteotomy with different fixation methods and analyzed whether or not intraoperative violation of the lateral cortex caused loss of correction or delayed bone healing.
