Stress Distributions and Micromovement of Fragment Bone of Pilon Fracture Treated With External Fixator: A Finite Element Analysis.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2020 Jul - Aug;59(4):664-672

Professor, Sports Innovation and Technology Centre (SITC), Institute of Human Centered Engineering (iHumEn), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Johor, Malaysia.

Osteoporosis and osteoarthritis are common pathological problems of the human bone tissue. There are some cases of pilon fractures associated with these 2 pathological conditions. In terms of treatment, for a normal and healthy bone with pilon fracture, the use of the Delta external fixator is a favorable option because it can allow early mobilization for patients and provide stability for the healing process.

Patient-specific instrument-assisted minimally invasive internal fixation of calcaneal fracture for rapid and accurate execution of a preoperative plan: A retrospective study.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2020 Jun 27;21(1):407. Epub 2020 Jun 27.

Department of Orthopedics, Xiangya Hospital Central South University, No.87 Xiangya Road, Changsha, 410008, Hunan, China.

Background: Traditional methods for minimally invasive internal fixation (MIIF) of calcaneal fractures require extensive intraoperative fluoroscopy, and fracture recovery is usually not ideal. We developed a new surgical procedure using digital surgical simulation and constructed a patient-specific instrument (PSI) for calcaneal fracture that we used during the operation. This study investigated whether PSI-assisted MIIF of calcaneal fracture enables rapid and accurate execution of the preoperative plan. Read More

Intraoperative Effect of 2D vs 3D Fluoroscopy on Quality of Reduction and Patient-Related Outcome in Calcaneal Fracture Surgery.

Foot Ankle Int 2020 Jun 9:1071100720926111. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

Trauma Unit, Amsterdam University Medical Centers, Location AMC, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Background: Three-dimensional (3D) fluoroscopy is thought to be advantageous in the open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of calcaneal fractures. The goal of this multicenter randomized controlled trial was to investigate the clinical effect of additional intraoperative 3D fluoroscopy on postoperative quality of reduction and fixation and patient-reported outcome as compared to conventional 2-dimensional (2D) fluoroscopy in patients with intra-articular fractures of the calcaneus.

Methods: Patients were randomized to 3D or conventional 2D fluoroscopy during operative treatment of calcaneal fractures. Read More

Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, University of Iowa, 200 Hawkins Drive, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA. Electronic address:

Minimally invasive surgical techniques are increasingly used for definitive treatment of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures. These approaches have been shown to minimize soft tissue injury, preserve blood supply, and decrease operative time. These methods can be applied to all calcaneal fractures and have particular advantages in patients with higher than usual risks to the soft tissues. Read More

Results After Percutaneous and Arthroscopically Assisted Osteosynthesis of Calcaneal Fractures.

Foot Ankle Int 2020 Jun 15;41(6):689-697. Epub 2020 May 15.

Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, Norway.

Background: Operative treatment of calcaneal fractures using the extensile lateral approach is associated with high rates of soft tissue complications. In the past years, there has been a trend toward less invasive surgical approaches. Percutaneous and arthroscopically assisted calcaneal osteosynthesis (PACO) combines the advantages of visualization of the posterior facet of the subtalar joint with a minimally invasive approach.

Pathogen identification in 84 Patients with post-traumatic osteomyelitis after limb fractures.

Ann Palliat Med 2020 03 17;9(2):451-458. Epub 2020 Mar 17.

Department of Orthopedics, Affiliated Hospital of Zunyi Medical University, Zunyi 563000, China; Joint Orthopaedic Research Center of Zunyi Medical University & University of Rochester Medical Center, Zunyi 563000, China.

Background: Chronic osteomyelitis is a serious complication of orthopedic trauma. Residual bacteria after incomplete debridement and/or bacterial colonization, bacterial biofilm formation, and generation of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains in the microtubule system of compact bones due to irrational use of antibiotics often make the condition more prolonged, recurrent, and refractory. The passive immunotherapy targeting the protein components of bacteria has become an area of intense research interest, for which identifying the bacterial isolates in different areas at different time points remains a key step.

Division of Orthopedic Trauma Surgery, 0490 McCaig Tower, Foothills Medical Centre, 3134 Hospital Drive NW, Calgary, Alberta, AB T2N 2T9, Canada. Electronic address:

Background: With the advent of 3D volume rendered CT scans, more information is potentially available to aid the surgeon in complex calcaneal fractures. The primary aim was to determine if there is a difference in inter-observer and intra-observer reliability of 3D CT reconstructions compared to 2D CTs of calcaneus fractures based on classification, identification of specific fracture characteristics and proposed treatment. It is hypothesized that the correlation will be greater between experienced surgeons and trainees when using 3D CT. Read More

University of Calgary Health Sciences Centre, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Electronic address:

Objective: To determine if three-dimensionally printed (3Dp) fracture models can improve orthopedic trainee education.

Design: A prospective comparison study of orthopedic trainees and attending surgeons was performed, where a range of calcaneal fractures were used for creating anonymized 3Dp models. Study participants rotated through workstations viewing computed tomography images and either a digital 3D volume rendering or 3Dp model of the fractured calcaneus. Read More

Diagnosis and Treatment of Peritalar Injuries in the Acute Trauma Setting: A Review of the Literature.

Adv Orthop 2020 3;2020:1852025. Epub 2020 Jan 3.

Albany Medical Center, Albany, NY, USA.

The bony and ligamentous structure of the foot is a complex kinematic interaction, designed to transmit force and motion in an energy-efficient and stable manner. Visible deformity of the foot or atypical patterns of swelling should raise significant concern for foot trauma. In some instances, disruption of either bony structure or supporting ligaments is identified years after injury due to chronic pain in the hindfoot or midfoot. Read More

J Orthop Trauma 2020 Feb;34 Suppl 1:S32-S37

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, North Shore Private Hospital, St. Leonards, Sydney Australia.

The hindfoot is functionally defined as the articulations between the talus, calcaneus, navicular, and cuboid. It is a biomechanically important peritalar unit for shock absorption and propulsion with the subtalar and talonavicular joint essential to its function. The primary cause of hindfoot arthritis is post-traumatic. Read More
