Varus talar tilt combined with an internal rotation pivot stress assesses the supination instability vector in lateral ankle ligaments' injury - cadaver study.

Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Department of Anatomy and Human Embryology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Barcelona, Spain; Department of Orthopaedics, Clinica del Remei, Barcelona, Spain.

Background: The lack of consensus on the relevance of the varus talar tilt test (VTTT) might be due to the divergence between the insufficiency vector of lateral ankle instability and the direction of this clinical test. Our hypothesis is that the VTTT is more accurate to diagnose lateral ankle ligaments rupture when it's applied with a pre-positioning of the foot in internal rotation (IR).

Methods: We compared, in 12 cadaver ankles, the varus opening during a classic VTTT with the same test starting in an IR pivot, using a new arthrometer. Read More

Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Mar 16. Epub 2019 Mar 16.

Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, An-Najah National University, Palestine. Electronic address:

Background: Congenital Idiopathic Talipes Equinovarus (CTEV), or clubfoot, is a complex deformity that involves pathological anatomy in the foot with ankle equinus, hindfoot varus, midfoot cavus and forefoot adductus [1].

Technical refinements of the free medial sural artery perforator (MSAP) flap in reconstruction of multifaceted ankle soft tissue defects.

Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Feb 23. Epub 2019 Feb 23.

St. Andrew's Centre for Burns and Plastic Surgery, Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, Essex, CM17ET, UK; STAAR, St. Andrews Anglia Ruskin Research Group, UK. Electronic address:

Background: Patient selection, surgeon's experience and implant design play an integral role and affect the treatment outcomes of total ankle arthroplasty (TAA). The aims of this study were to investigate the positive and negative attributes that correlate with different clinical and radiographic outcomes.

Methods: Eight-nine studies matched the inclusion criteria: (1) studies of primary TAA with uncemented prosthesis; (2) mean follow-up of no less than 2-year; (3) reports of clinical and radiographic outcomes, and exclusion criteria: (1) non-English study; (2) more than one type of prosthesis without separated data; (3) kin studies with shorter follow-up or smaller cohort.

Agreement between Sanders classification of intraarticular calcaneal fractures and assessment during the surgery.

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Dec 19. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Bone and Joint Diseases Research Center, Chamran Hospital, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran. Electronic address:

Background: Sanders classification, based on the number of displaced fractured fragments of posterior facet, can predict the prognosis of calcaneal intraarticular fractures. The aim of the study was assessing not only intraobserver reproducibility and interobserver reliability of Sanders classification but also the agreement between preoperative reported types based on computed tomography (CT) scan and direct observation during the surgery.

Methods: In this cross-sectional study, preoperative CT scans of 100 patients with intra-articular calcaneal fracture operated by a single surgeon were studied by two orthopedic and trauma surgeons (A & B), twice with an interval of three weeks. Read More

Three-dimensional displacement after a medializing calcaneal osteotomy in relation to the osteotomy angle and hindfoot alignment.

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Dec 7. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Ghent University Hospital, De Pintelaan 185, 9000 Gent, Belgium; University Orthopaedic Center, University of Utah, 590 Wakara Way Salt Lake City, UT 84108, USA.

Background: A medializing calcaneal osteotomy is frequently performed to correct adult-acquired flatfoot deformities, but there is lack of data on the associated three-dimensional variables defining the final correction. The aim of this study was to assess the correlation between the pre-operative hindfoot valgus deformity and calcaneal osteotomy angles and the post-operative calcaneal displacement.

Methods: Weight-bearing CT scans obtained pre- and post-operatively were retrospectively analyzed for sixteen patients. Read More

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Chungnam National University School of Medicine, Korea.

Background: Bosworth described an unusual fracture-dislocation of the ankle with fixed posterior fracture-dislocation of the fibula.

Is there a role for low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) in delayed or nonunion following arthrodesis in foot and ankle surgery?

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Nov 15. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Foot and Ankle Unit, Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr, Ystrad Fawr Way, Ystrad Mynach, Hengoed CF82 7EP, United Kingdom.

Background: Delayed union and nonunion following foot and ankle arthrodesis is a disabling complication for patients. There are no clinical studies looking at whether there is a role for use of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) following this. The aim of this study is to investigate the efficacy of LIPUS in this cohort of patients in our centre. Read More

Lateral ankle ligament anatomic reconstruction for chronic ankle instability: Allograft or autograft? A systematic review.

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

IRCCS Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi, Via Riccardo Galeazzi, 4, 20161, Milan, Italy. Electronic address:

Background: To investigate if there is any evidence in favour of autograft or allograft use for anatomic reconstruction of lateral ankle ligaments in patients with symptomatic chronic ankle instability.

Methods: A literature search was performed in PubMed MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, EMBASE and Google Scholar databases, over the years 1994-2017, to identify the studies presenting clinical results of anatomic lateral ankle ligaments reconstruction using various combinations of the keywords "lateral ankle ligaments reconstruction", "anatomic reconstruction", "chronic ankle instability", "allograft", "autograft". The surgical procedure was considered anatomic if consistent with the description of lateral ankle ligaments made by Burks and Morgan in 1994. Read More

Arthroscopic treatment of lateral ankle instability. Is there a safe zone? An anatomic study.

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Nov 27. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Hospital de Santa Maria, Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Norte EPE, Av. Prof. Egas Moniz, 1649-035 Lisboa, Portugal. Electronic address:

Background: The purpose of this study is to describe the relative location of superficial anatomic landmarks and likely location of structures at risk in order to predict the proximity of the later and avoid their injury during the arthroscopic treatment of lateral ankle instability.

Methods: Fifteen cadaver ankles were dissected. Based on superficial anatomic landmarks, the location and distances to the structures at risk (extensor tendons, peroneus tertius, peroneal tendons, main branch or intermediate branch of the superficial peroneal nerve, and the sural nerve) were measured.

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Nov 29. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Department of Trauma Surgery, Otto-von-Guericke University, Leipziger Str. 44 Magdeburg, Germany.

Background: We retrospectively evaluated the mid-term results of surgery for talar process fractures (lateral and posterior processes) and exploratively analyzed parameters that potentially impact treatment outcomes.

Methods: Fifteen patients who underwent internal fixation (January 2000 to December 2015) were examined for radiological and clinical functional outcomes. The independent parameters evaluated were age, sex, extent of general injury, soft-tissue damage, surgical latency, and fracture type. Read More

Is regional ankle block needed in conjunction with general anaesthesia for first ray surgery? A randomised controlled trial of ultrasound guided ankle block versus "blind" local infiltration.

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Nov 28. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Orthopaedic Surgery, Leicester General Hospital, University Hospitals of Leicester, Leicester, England, UK.

Background: Regional anaesthesia is commonly utilised for foot and ankle surgery. Debate remains at to the level of regional anaesthesia that is required. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether surgeon-delivered "blind" local anaesthetic infiltration around the first ray (metatarsal block without ultrasound guidance) was as effective as an ultrasound guided ankle block in providing post-operative analgesia after osseous first ray surgery performed under general anaesthetic.
