Resolution of the lumbosacral fractional curve and evaluation of the risk for adding on in 101 patients with posterior correction of Lenke 3, 4, and 6 curves.

J Neurosurg Spine 2021 Jul 30;35(4):471-485. Epub 2021 Jul 30.

Istanbul Spine Center, Istanbul Florence Nightingale Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Objective: In double and triple major adolescent idiopathic scoliosis curves it is still controversial whether the lowest instrumented vertebra (LIV) should be L3 or L4. Too short a fusion can impede postoperative distal curve compensation and promote adding on (AON). Longer fusions lower the chance of compensation by alignment changes of the lumbosacral curve (LSC).

Double Versus Triple Arthrodesis Fusion Rates: A Systematic Review.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2022 Jul-Aug;61(4):907-913. Epub 2022 Jan 19.

Attending Physician, Department of Orthopaedics, Kaiser Permanente, San Leandro, CA.

Hindfoot arthrodesis is often required for end-staged deformities, such as posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis. Although the need for hindfoot arthrodesis is generally accepted in severe deformities, there is a debate whether a double or triple arthrodesis should be performed. The aim of our systematic review is to review the fusion rates and mean time to fusion in double and triple arthrodesis. Read More

An Approach to the Management of Severe Clubfoot Deformities on Global Humanitarian Programs: The Role of Talectomy.

Foot Ankle Clin 2021 Dec 7;26(4):727-745. Epub 2021 Oct 7.

Centro Clinico Orthopectus e IGESDF, SMHN Bloco A Ed. Clínicas, Sala 804-806, Brasília, DF 70710-904, Brazil.

The approach to treatment of severe untreated or recurrent congenital talipes equinovarus deformities is very different in the world where patients are mobile, have access to repeated return visits for follow-up treatment, and where more sophisticated options for gradual correction with external fixation are available. For treatment, talectomy may be the only option to treat certain neglected clubfoot deformities during humanitarian programs and it may still have to be used as a salvage procedure used in modern foot surgery. Our extensive experience with these deformities has been on global humanitarian programs. Read More

Is Arthrodesis Sufficient in the Setting of Complex, Severe and Rigid Progressive Collapsing Foot Deformities?

Foot Ankle Clin 2021 Sep;26(3):609-617

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, 3333 North Calvert Street, Suite 400, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA. Electronic address:

Arthrodesis of the hindfoot is typically used for the correction of severe and arthritic progressive collapsing foot deformity. Concomitant bony or soft tissue procedures may be helpful in patients with congenital abnormalities including the ball-and-socket ankle or congenital vertical talus. Dysplasia of the hindfoot bones may be more common than previously recognized, and corrective procedures or alterations in technique may need to be performed during hindfoot arthrodesis to account for bony deformity.

Department of Pediatric Orthopedics, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania.

Flatfoot is a common deformity in the pediatric population and has a multitude of causes. Sometimes, it can be a normal finding in children, and treatment should not be guided only based on the appearance, but rather after thoroughly assessing the patient and the impact it has on the child's daily life. In this paper, we describe the quality of life that the patients are experiencing after the surgical treatment of this pathology. Read More

JBJS Essent Surg Tech 2020 Jan-Mar;10(1). Epub 2020 Feb 13.

Steps2Walk, Inc., Baltimore, Maryland.

Middle facet tarsal coalition is one of the commonly seen tarsal coalitions in clinical practice that can cause pain and associated flatfoot deformity. Excision of the coalition is one of the treatment options for symptomatic cases. Although symptoms may subside in children following a period of immobilization, resection should be considered as a treatment alternative for children and adolescents because of the potential for restoration of subtalar joint movement.
