Excision of a Middle Facet Tarsal Coalition.

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.

Optimal Surgical Management of Tarsal Coalitions.

Instr Course Lect 2020 ;69:371-380

Tarsal coalitions are common, but fortunately the majority of patients with coalitions are asymptomatic and do not require intervention. When symptomatic, preoperative radiographs and CT scans are useful to characterize the type and extent of coalition. If a trial of nonsurgical management fails, resection, deformity correction, and triple arthrodesis may be considered. Read More

Arthroereisis for Symptomatic Flexible Flatfoot Deformity in Young Children: Radiological Assessment and Short-Term Follow-Up.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2019 Sep;58(5):904-915

Community Doctor, Department of Medicine, National and Kapodistrial University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

The purpose of this study is to recognize those young patients with symptomatic flexible flatfoot deformity who need treatment and to provide radiological evidence that arthroereisis is capable of relocating the talus properly over the calcaneus. We included 28 feet in 14 children who underwent subtalar arthroereisis in association with percutaneous triple-hemisection Achilles tendon lengthening. Selected for arthroereisis were children with symptomatic flexible flatfoot deformity who complained of foot and leg pain, had decreased endurance in sports activities and long walks, who did not respond to conservative treatment modalities for at least 6 months, and in whom at radiological assessment on stance position with the medial arch support orthosis the talonavicular joint lateral subluxation still remained, with Meary's angle in anteroposterior (A/P) and lateral view remaining increased.

When is it Safe to Drive After Total Ankle Arthroplasty?

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2020 01;478(1):8-15

E. L. McDonald, D. I. Pedowitz, R. J. Shakked, D. J. Fuchs. B. S. Winters, J. N. Daniel, S. M. Raikin, Rothman Institute of Orthopaedics, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Background: With the increase in the number of total ankle arthroplasties (TAA), guidelines on when physicians should begin to consider patients' return to driving are valuable. Further, due to sagittal motion strength, the ankle is the most important mover in braking motions over the knee and hip.

Questions/purposes: (1) Does brake-reaction time return to a safe value within 6 weeks of TAA? (2) Are there factors associated with a delay of return of brake-reaction time to safe values after TAA?

Methods: After obtaining institutional review board approval for the study, we prospectively recruited 60 patients undergoing right TAA. Read More

Analysis of biomechanical stresses caused by hindfoot joint arthrodesis in the treatment of adult acquired flatfoot deformity: A finite element study.

Foot Ankle Surg 2020 Jun 19;26(4):412-420. Epub 2019 May 19.

Applied Mechanics and Bioengineering Group (AMB), Aragón Institute of Engineering Research (I3A), Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain.

Background: Treatments of adult acquired flatfoot deformity in early stages (I-IIa-IIb) are focused on strengthening tendons, in isolation or combined with osteotomies, but in stage III, rigidity of foot deformity requires more restrictive procedures such as hindfoot joint arthrodesis. Few experimental studies have assessed the biomechanical effects of these treatments, because of the difficulty of measuring these parameters in cadavers. Our objective was to quantify the biomechanical stress caused by both isolated hindfoot arthrodesis and triple arthrodesis on the main tissues that support the plantar arch. Read More
