A combination of bimalleolar fracture and fracture on talar body and neck: A rare case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 Jun;99(26):e20862

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, China Medical University Hospital.

Rationale: Talar fracture accompanied with malleolar fracture is rare, and its management is complex. Ankle soft tissue is much thinner than other parts of the human body, and the shape of the ankle makes wounds difficult to close immediately after surgery, which may result in poor skin condition if the wound tension is too high. However, joint congruity and osteonecrosis are the main concerns of talar fracture. Read More

Clinical presentation and surgical treatment of distal fibular non-union with talus chondral lesions in a pediatric patient: a case report.

BMC Surg 2020 Jun 9;20(1):125. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

Orthopedic Department, San Gerardo Hospital, University of Milano-Bicocca, Via Pergolesi 33, 20900, Monza, Italy.

Background: In children, fracture non-union is uncommon yet, curiously, non-union of distal fibula fractures are rarely reported. Historically, the most common treatment of a lateral malleolus fracture after an ankle sprain is conservative, which usually leads to fracture union. However, even in clinically stable ankles, subsequent pain arising from fracture site could suggest non-union, thereby necessitating reexamination and possible secondary treatment. Read More

Diagnostic value of intraoperative tap test for acute deltoid ligament injury.

Eur J Trauma Emerg Surg 2019 Oct 17. Epub 2019 Oct 17.

Department of Orthopedics Trauma, Trauma Center, Shanghai General Hospital, School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 650 Xin Songjiang Road, Shanghai, 201620, People's Republic of China.

Purpose: Deltoid ligament injuries appear with isolated or even no displacement of the lateral malleolus fracture which could easily lead to misdiagnosis, which frequently brings about ankle medial instability and talus shift that eventually lead to the occurrence of ankle osteoarthritis. This study is aimed to investigate the value of the tap test for assessing the integrity of the deltoid ligament intraoperatively.

Methods: Ninety-two patients with malleolar fractures and possible acute deltoid ligament injury treated in our hospital from March 2013 to May 2016 were enrolled in this prospective study. Read More
