Open reduction internal fixation is the gold standard for unstable ankle fracture fixation; however, complications in patients with multiple medical comorbidities are common. Intramedullary nail fixation of the fibula can help to mitigate these difficulties. A retrospective chart review was performed on all patients who underwent fixation for unstable ankle fracture between January 2015 and March 2016 at our level I trauma center. Comorbidities in the patient sample included were one or several of diabetes, renal disease, hypertension, advanced age with osteoporosis, hemorrhagic blisters, and alcoholism...

No consensus exists regarding which cleansing technique, solution, and concentration should be used in orthopedic surgery. The aim of this randomized, controlled trial was to compare the effect of chlorhexidine 0.5%/70% alcohol with iodine 1%/70% alcohol on lowering positive cultures before elective foot surgery and to study any wound complications, infections and allergic reactions. Consecutive patients ≥18 years of age scheduled for a hallux valgus correction or arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint were included...

Epidermal growth factor is used as an adjuvant to close the wound in addition to standard care in diabetic foot ulcers. This study aimed to investigate the long-term outcomes after intralesional epidermal growth factor injections in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. Thirty-six feet of 34 patients (n = 34) with diabetic foot ulcers were included. Patient demographics, Wagner classifications, recurrence and amputation rates, Foot Function Index, Short Form 36, and American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons Foot and Ankle Module scores were evaluated at the final follow-up examination...

In the emergency settings, increased body mass index (BMI) is a risk factor for traumatic orthopedic injuries. The aim of this study was to assess the association between the acute ankle injuries (sprain or fracture) and BMI. This prospective cohort study included patients ≥18 years of age with acute traumatic ankle injuries (either sprain or fracture) caused by fall from own height when walking at ground level and who received primary treatment at the emergency room of a university hospital between May and October 2017...

Nitinol has been shown to generate durable compression under loading via pseudoelastic shape memory. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a hindfoot arthrodesis nail with an internal pseudoelastic nitinol compression element. Patients who had undergone tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis from 2013 to 2016 were identified at 2 tertiary referral centers (12-week follow-up minimum). Patients managed with a tibiotalocalcaneal nail with an internal nitinol compression element were identified for review...

Soft tissue ganglion cysts are a well-known cause of tibial nerve compression in the tarsal tunnel. We describe a patient who presented with tibial nerve symptoms and was found to have an adventitial cyst of the tibial vein arising from the subtalar joint, with the joint connection confirmed both on imaging and at surgery. Surgical decompression of the cyst with transection of the vascular pedicle arising from the subtalar joint improved her symptoms at 6 months, and postoperative magnetic resonance imaging showed resolution of the cyst...

Medial column arthrodesis and calcaneal osteotomies are commonly used for adult-acquired flatfoot surgical reconstruction. In this case series, 10 patients (11 feet) with a mean age of 54 ± 13 years underwent a medial column arthrodesis, with or without calcaneal osteotomy, between 2010 and 2017. The indication for surgery was a painful flatfoot deformity with peritalar subluxation and a fault in the naviculocuneiform joint. At a mean of 9.9 (range 2.5 to 33.1) months after surgery, in patients who underwent a medial column arthrodesis, radiographs showed a mean decrease in the talonavicular coverage angle of 8...

Surgical treatment options in a chondroblastoma of the talus breaching the subchondral layer with imminent risk of talar collapse in the weightbearing area are limited. A joint-preserving surgery should be advocated. Because current treatment options such as curettage, cryosurgery, or radiofrequency ablation may not be able to prevent a talar dome breakdown in large defects, nonvascularized bone grafting has been advocated to fill the void. To overcome the lack of vitality, a vascularized bone autograft might be an attractive alternative...

To correct hallux valgus deformities in patients with advanced arthritis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint, we designed a new reverse chevron-type shortening osteotomy technique that could be used to correct valgus deformities at the proximal metatarsal level, as well as shorten and lower the metatarsal, in a 1-time procedure. Sixteen feet in 16 patients with a minimum of 18 months follow-up who underwent a shortening proximal chevron metatarsal osteotomy for a hallux valgus deformity with advanced arthritic change between January 2014 and March 2016 were reviewed in this study...

The goal of the present work was to perform a systematic review of the literature of the past 10 years regarding dynamic and static fixation of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis to determine any clinical differences between the 2 procedures. A literature search of the PubMed MEDLINE database was conducted to identify relevant studies related to distal tibiofibular syndesmosis. Studies before January 1, 2007, were excluded to limit the project to the recent literature. Clinical outcomes, device removal rates, time to weightbearing after the initial procedure, and the cost effectiveness of each device were explored...

Calcific insertional Achilles tendinopathy (CIAT) is a relatively common musculoskeletal entity that results in significant pain and disability, as well as posterior muscle group weakness. There is a lack of evidence criteria to support the timing of operative intervention, choice of procedures, or whether equinus requires treatment. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively review 45 patients (48 feet) who have undergone surgical management of CIAT with concomitant posterior muscle group weakness with the single heel rise testing...

Chronic gout is defined as accumulation of monosodium urate crystals in joints, cartilage, tendons, bursae, bone, and soft tissue. The foot is the most common location for acute gout flares, with the first metatarsophalangeal joint being the most frequent site of tophus formation. However, few studies have reported gouty tophus formation in the subtalar joint. Gout has been termed the "great mimicker" because of its tendency to mimic other pathologic conditions, such as pigmented villonodular synovitis and synovial sarcoma...

The prevalence of os trigonum and osteochondral lesions of talus (OCLT) have been presented in different prevalences among different groups in the literature for the patients with ankle impingement syndrome. Our main objective in the study was to determine the possible relationship between the impingement syndrome and the prevalence of os trigonum and OCLT in specific groups. The presence of anterior ankle impingement syndrome (AAIS), posterior ankle impingement syndrome (PAIS), os trigonum, OCLT, and the location of OCLT were evaluated in a blinded manner on magnetic resonance imaging from patients clinically considered to be diagnosed with ankle impingement syndrome from January 2014 to July 2017...

Heel ulcers have a significant impact on lower extremity morbidity and confer a high risk for major amputations. Although there are many conservative treatment options, once calcaneal osteomyelitis occurs or a heel ulcer becomes chronic or recalcitrant, more invasive management is required. The partial calcanectomy is a surgical solution that can address both pathologies-the ulceration and the infected bone. The conventional partial calcanectomy, however, does not ensure complete soft tissue closure. Often, closure under tension is required for primary closure of the soft tissue deficit or the wound must be closed by secondary intention...

The purpose of this study was to demonstrate use of a distally based peroneus brevis muscle flap in high-risk patients with diabetes and peripheral vascular disease for limb salvage of nonhealing heel ulcerations. Seventeen patients were referred for a below-knee amputation because of nonhealing heel ulcerations and peripheral vascular disease. As a last resort, 17 distally based peroneus brevis muscle flaps were elevated in 17 patients with full-thickness heel ulcerations measuring an average defect size of 14...

Lateral hindfoot pain associated with stage 2 to 3 adult-acquired flatfoot is often attributed to subfibular impingement. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is generally performed to assess the extent of degeneration within the posterior tibial tendon, attenuation of medial soft tissue constraints, and degeneration of hindfoot and/or ankle articulations. The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence of lateral collateral ligament disease/injury associated with stages 2 and 3 adult-acquired flatfoot...

Anthony Tickner, Seiha Thorng, Mary Martin, Valerie Marmolejo
Rupture of the tibialis anterior tendon is a rare condition reported to occur most often spontaneously in patients >45 years of age. Diagnosis is often delayed due to transient pain at the time of rupture and the ability of the long extensors to compensate for the lost action of the tibialis anterior. Treatment has been proposed to be based on the activity level of the individual; however, no consensus has been reached on the optimal treatment modality for this rare condition. A systematic review and meta-analysis were performed to determine outcomes obtained with conservative and surgical management...

The treatment of hammer toe has been advocated for years, and many procedures have been proposed with skeletal and soft tissue intervention. The purpose of the present study was to compare arthrodesis of the proximal interphalangeal joint with shortening osteotomy of the proximal phalanx neck. In most cases, both procedures have been associated with elongation of the extensor apparatus, capsulotomy of the metatarsophalangeal joint, and stabilization with a Kirschner wire. To experiment with a technique that respects the anatomy and joint function, we used a distal subtraction osteotomy of the proximal phalanx neck...

The purpose of our study was to examine the preoperative clinical factors and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings associated with peroneal pathology in chronic lateral ankle instability patients, as well as the clinical factors associated with peroneal lesions being detected on MRI. Peroneal pathology was determined from intraoperative findings. Patients with/without peroneal pathology were compared regarding their preoperative clinical findings. MRI reports were examined to determine the sensitivity of detecting peroneal pathologies...
