Phenotyping of hip-knee-ankle angle in young non-osteoarthritic knees provides better understanding of native alignment variability.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology, Kantonsspital Baselland (Bruderholz, Liestal, Laufen), 4101, Bruderholz, Switzerland.

Purpose: There is a lack of knowledge about the native coronal knee alignment in 3D. The currently used classification system (neutral, valgus and varus) oversimplifies the coronal knee alignment. The purpose of this study was therefore (1) to investigate the coronal knee alignment in non-osteoarthritic knees using 3D-reconstructed CT images and (2) to introduce a classification system for the overall knee alignment based on phenotypes.

Missed foot fractures in multiple trauma patients.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2019 Mar 25;20(1):121. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Committee on Emergency Medicine, Intensive Care and Trauma Management, (Sektion NIS) of the German Trauma Society (DGU), Cologne, Germany.

Background: Missed or underestimated injuries are one of the central problems in trauma care. Foot injuries can easily be missed because they lay beyond the regularly screened field of a trauma computer tomography scan (CT scan). During primary and secondary survey a careful examination of the extremities often becomes of secondary interest in the severely injured patient. Read More

Selective fixation of the medial malleolus in unstable ankle fractures.

Injury 2019 Mar 11. Epub 2019 Mar 11.

Edinburgh Orthopaedic Trauma, Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH16 4SA, United Kingdom.

Background: Whilst the lateral malleolus appears to be crucial in controlling anatomical reduction of the talus, the role of the medial malleolus is less clear. Medial sided complications including infection, damage to local structures and symptomatic hardware are not without morbidity. This study compares the outcomes of patients with bimalleolar or trimalleolar ankle fractures who underwent fibular nail stabilisation with or without medial malleolar fixation. Read More

Is It an Overlooked Injury? Magnetic Resonance Imaging Examination of Occult Talus Lesions Concomitant to Tibial Shaft Fracture.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Feb 22. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Associate Professor, Department of Radiology, SBÜ Ankara Numune Training and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

Long-term studies have shown that 10% to 20% of patients continue to experience ankle pain years after tibial fracture, which causes poor functional results and dissatisfaction. The aim of this study was to show that there could be a talus injury in patients with a tibial shaft fracture and to reveal occult talus lesions with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination. Fifty-two patients with a tibial shaft fracture, with closed epiphyses, not extending to the joint and with no problems in the application of MRI examination were included. Read More

Magnetic resonance imaging of subchondral insufficiency fractures of the lower limb.

Skeletal Radiol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, Stanmore, UK.

Subchondral insufficiency fracture (SIF) is a non-traumatic condition that has historically been associated with elderly, osteoporotic women and patients with systemic conditions. There has been much work done to determine the pathogenesis of SIF, which has previously been regarded as idiopathic, rapid-progressive osteoarthritis or osteonecrosis of the hip, spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee (SONK), osteochondral defect (OCD) of the talus and adult-onset Freiberg infraction of the metatarsal head. Early diagnosis and management are crucial to prevent subchondral collapse, secondary osteonecrosis and early-onset osteoarthritis. Read More

The Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction at Mercy, 301 St Paul Place, Baltimore, MD 21202, USA.

Displaced talar neck fractures no longer constitute a surgical emergency; timing of definitive surgery has no bearing on the risk of osteonecrosis. Amount of initial fracture displacement is best predictor of osteonecrosis. Grossly displaced fractures or fracture-dislocations should be provisionally reduced, with or without temporary external fixation. Read More

Successful Limb Salvage Using Bone Transport for Complete Loss of Distal Tibia and Talus: A Case Report.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Jan;58(1):195-199

Assistant Professor, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Ulsan University Hospital, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Ulsan, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Complex comminuted fractures involving the distal tibia, ankle joint, and talus are often accompanied by bone loss and are highly prone to complications such as soft tissue infection, fixation failure, and posttraumatic arthrosis, with joint reconstruction being difficult in cases with severe joint destruction or bone loss. In this case, bone transport and fusion procedures were performed to treat a patient with an open fracture involving total talar dislocation, talar bone loss, and distal tibial bone loss. Just as in this case, where the surrounding soft tissues remain healthy, limb salvage via segmental bone transport may be a reasonable option in fractures with massive bone loss that include joints.

Deltoid Ligament Rupture in Ankle Fracture: Diagnosis and Management.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2018 Nov 20. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

From the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL.

The last stage of a supination-external rotation ankle fracture involves either transverse fracture of the medial malleolus or rupture of the deltoid ligament. When the deltoid ligament ruptures, a "bimalleolar equivalent" ankle fracture occurs, and the surgeon is presented with several diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. In the native ankle, the deltoid ligament provides restraint to eversion and external rotation of the talus on the tibia. Read More

Three-Dimensional (3D) Computed Tomographic (CT) Assessment of the Sustentaculum Tail to Find Distinctive Characteristics: Implications for Surgery.

Med Sci Monit 2018 Nov 22;24:8417-8421. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Department of Orthopedics, Affiliated Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital of Southwest Medical University, Luzhou, Sichuan, China (mainland).

BACKGROUND With the complexity of calcaneal fracture (CF) increasing, its treatment has changed to include inserting the screw used to secure the facies articular posterior into the sustentaculum tail (ST). Some research progress has been made in this area, but there has been little in-depth research on the anatomical morphology of the sustentaculum tail, which is necessary for clinical surgery, and more information about Chinese anatomic characteristics and improved surgical techniques for CF are needed. MATERIAL AND METHODS This anatomical study, based on a three-dimensional (3D) computed tomographic (CT) reconstruction technique, included 287 dry calcaneus, consisting of 144 left and 143 right calcaneus.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Jan 15;58(1):75-79. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Medical Student, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Doctors Hospital, Columbus, OH.

In unstable ankle fractures, the importance of reducing the lateral malleolus first to obtain an anatomic reduction of the talus is well established. Although this is a time-tested and common surgical approach, current surgical practice does not always follow the established dogma. Medial-first fixation may be a worthwhile alternative to lateral-first fixation in select instances. Read More

Bilateral Stress Fractures of the Talus Associated with Adult-Acquired Flatfoot Deformities.

Case Rep Orthop 2018 9;2018:5376384. Epub 2018 Sep 9.

Department of Rheumatology, JCHO Yugawara Hospital, 438 Miyakami, Yugawara, Ashigarashimo, Kanagawa 259-0396, Japan.

Adult-acquired flatfoot deformity is a progressive flattening of the arch of the foot that results from posterior tibial tendon insufficiency with a predilection for middle-aged women. A lateralized force vector associated with hindfoot valgus in adult-acquired flatfoot produces lateral ankle pain due to impingement at the lateral hindfoot, which can even lead to stress fractures of the distal fibula. Here, we present the rare case of a 73-year-old woman who presented with stress fractures of the bilateral taluses and unilateral distal fibula accompanied by severe adult-acquired flatfoot deformities.

Lower Bone Density on Preoperative Computed Tomography Predicts Periprosthetic Fracture Risk in Total Ankle Arthroplasty.

Foot Ankle Int 2019 Jan 29;40(1):1-8. Epub 2018 Sep 29.

3 Orthopaedic Surgery, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, USA.

Background:: The effect of bone mineral density (BMD) on outcomes from total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) has not been studied. BMD can be estimated by measuring Hounsfield units (HU) on standard computed tomography (CT), which is frequently performed prior to TAA. We aimed to identify whether tibial and talar HU measured from preoperative CT scans were associated with periprosthetic fracture or revision risk in patients undergoing TAA. Read More

Fractures of the Lateral Process of the Talus.

Foot Ankle Clin 2018 Sep;23(3):375-395

Departement of Surgery, Kantonsspital Graubünden, Loëstrasse 170, Chur 7000, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Lateral talar process fractures (LTPF) are uncommon injuries but have become more relevant with snowboarding. Currently the fractures are classified according to McCrory-Bladin into 3 types, with advice for treatment that is not ideal anymore. This article proposes modifying the existing classification by differentiating the multifragmented type III into 3 subtypes: IIIa, articular multifragmented but metaphyseal simple; IIIb, articular and metaphyseal multifragmented but reconstructable; and type IIIc, comminuted and nonreconstructable.

Traumatic Injury to the Subtalar Joint.

Foot Ankle Clin 2018 Sep;23(3):353-374

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Kyungpook National University Hospital, 130 Dongdeok-ro, Jung-gu, Daegu 41944, Korea.

Traumatic injury to the subtalar joint occurs during subtalar dislocations, talar and calcaneal fractures, and fracture-dislocations. After closed reduction of subtalar dislocations, peripheral talar or calcaneal fractures need to be ruled out by computed tomography scanning. In fractures and fracture-dislocations of the talus and calcaneus involving the subtalar joint, anatomic reconstruction of joint congruity is essential for functional rehabilitation. Read More
