Is Use of Bone Cement for Treatment of Second Metatarsal Stress Fractures Safe? A Case Report.

Cureus 2018 Oct 9;10(10):e3436. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Orthopaedics, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, USA.

Metatarsal stress fractures are common injuries of the foot and can be a source of chronic pain without appropriate management. Conservative management is first line, but surgery may be indicated in athletes, cases of nonunion, and fractures of the fifth metatarsal. We report a case of a 34-year-old female who presented to clinic for intractable pain of the left foot secondary to a stress fracture of the left second metatarsal, which had been previously treated with injectable acrylic bone cement.

The effect of additional activation of the plantar intrinsic foot muscles on foot kinematics in flat-footed subjects.

Foot (Edinb) 2018 Nov 6;38:19-23. Epub 2018 Nov 6.

Department of Physical Therapy, Faculty of Health and Welfare, Prefectural University of Hiroshima, 1-1 Gakuen-cho, Mihara-shi, Hiroshima 723-0053, Japan.

Background: Strengthening exercises of the plantar intrinsic foot muscles (PIFMs) are often prescribed to flat-footed subjects because of the capacity of the PIFMs to support the medial longitudinal arch (MLA). However, it is unclear whether the capacity of the PIFMs to support the MLA is enough to change the foot kinematics in flat-footed subjects. To confirm this, the current study examined changes in foot kinematics in flat-footed subjects during standing and gait accompanied by changes in the activity of the PIFMs. Read More

Free composite groin flap to solve a complex loss of tissue in a traumatic injury of the foot: A case report.

Injury 2018 Dec 3;49 Suppl 4:S25-S28. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

University of Turin, Orthopaedic Clinic, C.T.O. Hospital, Turin, Italy.

Severe traumatic losses of soft tissues and bone at foot and ankle level are often treated by means of amputation, but this may involve important psychological and anatomic consequences for the patient. If there are good vascular conditions, reconstruction by means of composite free flaps is often the only alternative to this demolitive treatment. The transfer of composite free flaps that include vascularized bone from various donor sites may provide anatomical reconstruction and recovery of function of the foot and ankle. Read More

Biomechanical Evaluation of Virtual Reality-based Turning on a Self-Paced Linear Treadmill.

Gait Posture 2018 09 24;65:157-162. Epub 2018 Jul 24.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon 34141, Korea (Keonyoung Oh: Hyung-Soon Park:

Background: Patients with brain injuries such as Parkinson's disease or stroke exhibit abnormal gait characteristics especially during gait transitions such as step initiation and turning. Since such transitions could precipitate falls and resultant injuries, evaluation and rehabilitation of non-steady state gait in those patients are important. Whereas body weight supported treadmill training (BWSTT) provides a safe and controlled environment for gait training, it is unable to adequately train for gait transitions since the typical linear treadmill does not allow for changes in walking direction and natural fluctuations in speed.

First MTP joint instability - Expanding the concept of "Turf-toe" injuries.

Foot Ankle Surg 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Ankle and Foot Medicine and Surgery of UNIFESP - Paulista Medical School, Brazil.

Background: Although the classic definition of the Turf-toe injury refers to a very specific clinical and pathological picture, we think that the concept can be broadened to encompass a wide variety of traumatic lesions of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP1). These are lesions typically difficult to diagnose, with a large variation of outcomes and a potential to impair patients' functional performance on a definitive and perennial basis. The objective of this study is to present the result obtained by treating 24 cases of traumatic injuries to the MTP1 joint in a midterm follow-up time. Read More

Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ) 2018 Oct;47(10)

University of California, Davis, Department of Orthopaedics, 3301 C St, Ste 1700, Sacramento, CA 95816, USA. Email:

The ankle is one of the most commonly injured joints in soccer and represents a significant cost to the healthcare system. The ligaments that stabilize the ankle joint determine its biomechanics-alterations of which result from various soccer-related injuries. Acute sprains are among the most common injury in soccer players and are generally treated conservatively, with emphasis placed on secondary prevention to reduce the risk for future sprains and progression to chronic ankle instability.

An Injury Risk Function for the Leg, Foot, and Ankle Exposed to Axial Impact Loading Using Force and Impulse.

J Biomech Eng 2019 Feb;141(2)

Center for Applied Biomechanics, University of Virginia, , Charlottesville, VA 22911 e-mail: .

Most injury risk functions (IRFs) for dynamic axial loading of the leg have been targeted toward automotive applications such as predicting injury caused by intrusion into the occupant compartment from frontal collisions. Recent focus on leg injuries in the military has led to questions about the applicability of these IRFs shorter duration, higher amplitude loading associated with underbody blast (UBB). To investigate these questions, data were collected from seven separate test series that subjected post-mortem human legs to axial impact. Read More

Higher Rates of Lower Extremity Injury on Synthetic Turf Compared With Natural Turf Among National Football League Athletes: Epidemiologic Confirmation of a Biomechanical Hypothesis.

Am J Sports Med 2018 Nov 19:363546518808499. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

Center for Applied Biomechanics, University of Virginia; Biomechanics Consulting & Research (Biocore), Charlottesville, Virginia, USA.

Background:: Biomechanical studies have shown that synthetic turf surfaces do not release cleats as readily as natural turf, and it has been hypothesized that concomitant increased loading on the foot contributes to the incidence of lower body injuries. This study evaluates this hypothesis from an epidemiologic perspective, examining whether the lower extremity injury rate in National Football League (NFL) games is greater on contemporary synthetic turfs as compared with natural surfaces.

Hypothesis:: Incidence of lower body injury is higher on synthetic turf than on natural turf among elite NFL athletes playing on modern-generation surfaces. Read More

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

Free flap and kickstand external fixator in foot and ankle soft tissue reconstruction. The versatility of a microsurgical-friendly application of an orthopedic device.

Injury 2018 Nov;49 Suppl 3:S105-S109

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Emergency and Organ Transplantation, University of Bari Aldo Moro, Bari, Italy.

Introduction: Foot and ankle are prone to injuries and often require free flap for complex soft tissue reconstruction due to the insufficiency of local soft tissue. Lower limb reconstruction can be commonly compromised by venous insufficiency, and the elevation of the limb represents a critical component of the postoperative care. This study aims to explore the versatility of combining free soft tissue flap reconstruction for complex foot and ankle defect with a temporary Kickstands External Fixator (KEF) placement. Read More

Medial Ankle Instability: The Deltoid Dilemma.

Foot Ankle Clin 2018 Dec 25;23(4):639-657. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

Orthopaedic Department, Swiss Ortho Center, Swiss Medical Network, Schmerzklinik Basel, Hirschgässlein 15, Basel 4010, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Diagnosis and treatment of medial ankle instability (MAI) are still controversial and poorly discussed in literature. The purpose of this review is to highlight different clinical presentations of MAI and develop a guide for its management. The deltoid ligament complex is injured more commonly than expected, because deltoid ligament injuries may either be isolated or occur in combination with other lesions, such as lateral ankle ligament injury, posterior tibial tendon insufficiency, osteochondral lesion, and others.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore, MD, USA. Electronic address:

Ankle sprains continue to be among the most common musculoskeletal injuries, most of which never require surgical treatment. Surgical treatment has traditionally been successful for those patients whose symptoms do not improve with nonoperative care. However, recurrent instability, although rare, can occur early or late after a stabilization procedure, as the result of an acute traumatic event or chronic repetitive minor injury. Read More

Kim Slater

Foot Ankle Clin 2018 Dec 26;23(4):523-537. Epub 2018 Sep 26.

Mater Private Hospital, North Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Electronic address:

Acute injuries to the lateral ankle complex remain common and account for 20% to 25% of musculoskeletal injuries. Initial assessment should use the Ottawa ankle rules, and grading should take into account degree of mechanical instability. Nonoperative measures are preferable for all grades of injury; however, mechanical instability is a predictor for resprains. Read More

Generalized hypermobility syndrome (GHS) alters dynamic plantar pressure characteristics.

J Back Musculoskelet Rehabil 2018 Nov 2. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Department of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, Faculty of Health Sciences, Bandırma On Yedi Eylul University, Bandırma, Turkey.

Background: In the relevant literature generalized hypermobility syndrome (GHS) has been shown to alter the kinetic and kinematic patterns of the human movement system. Although GHS affects the general body biomechanics of individuals, the body of knowledge in plantar pressure distribution in GHS is far from sufficient.

Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine whether individuals with joint hypermobility syndrome have abnormal plantar pressure distribution during normal gait compared to healthy individuals. Read More
