The "horseman" procedure is a surgical technique used to correct the talocalcaneal joint displacement of severe idiopathic flatfoot in children while maintaining the reduction with a temporary talocalcaneal screw. While this technique has been used since the early 1960s, very little has been reported on its results. Our objectives were to estimate the correction, functional results, and postoperative complications of the "horseman" procedure. We conducted a retrospective study on 23 consecutive patients (41 cases) who underwent the "horseman" procedure for a talocalcaneal joint displacement...

Dorsiflexory phalangeal osteotomy has been shown to be an effective treatment for mild to moderate hallux rigidus in short- to medium-term follow-up studies. It is speculated that the procedure alters the mechanical function of the joint and reduces the demand for hallux dorsiflexion by elevating the proximal phalanx into a more dorsiflexed position. However, it has been demonstrated that the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint space and joint range of motion are reduced by the procedure, calling into question the long-term effectiveness of the operation...

Foot and ankle surgeons continue to explore bone graft alternatives that will be comparable to the reference standard of autologous bone. The purpose of the present study was to consider the outcomes of hindfoot arthrodesis supplemented with bioactive glass in patients at risk of delayed union and nonunion. We performed a retrospective radiographic review of 29 consecutive patients (48 joints) who had undergone arthrodesis of ≥1 joint of the hindfoot (ankle, subtalar, talonavicular, calcaneocuboid). All patients included in the present study had a minimum of 1 documented risk factor for osseous nonunion (history of previous nonunion, trauma, smoking, diabetes, Charcot arthropathy, obesity, age >65 years at surgery)...

Ankle arthritis is a potentially debilitating disease, with approximately 50,000 cases diagnosed annually. One treatment option for these patients is total ankle arthroplasty (TAA). This procedure has historically been performed in the inpatient setting with a 1-2-night postoperative hospital stay. Outpatient surgeries are gaining popularity due to their cost effectiveness, decreased length of hospital stay, and convenience. Therefore it is important to evaluate the safety of specific procedures in the outpatient setting compared with the inpatient setting...

The purpose of this study was to determine if clinical palpation and ultrasound determination of apposition compares with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in patients with an acute Achilles tendon rupture. A review of 18 consecutive patients presenting with an acute Achilles tendon tear was performed. All tears were diagnosed by clinical exam and confirmed by ultrasound. Ankles were then plantarflexed to a point where tendon apposition was achieved as determined by palpation and ultrasound. Dorsally based equinus splints were applied, and approximation was reconfirmed by palpation and ultrasound...

Symptomatic cystic lesions of the talus are rare. The traditional operations usually do not provide visualization to reveal the deep structure of the lesion and could cause cartilage damage or other severe traumatic injury. We report an operative technique to reach the cystic lesion without talar cartilage damage, remove the lesion, and fill defect with a bone graft assisted by anterior arthroscopy and evaluate its safety and reliability for future study. Seven cases of talar bone cyst were included. The patients were placed in the supine position after anesthesia induction and noninvasive ankle traction was applied...

Residual symptoms often persist even after successful operative reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of ankle fractures. Concurrent ankle arthroscopic procedures (CAAPs) have been proposed to improve clinical outcomes; however, a dearth of evidence is available supporting this practice. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the reoperation and complication rates after ORIF of ankle fractures with and without CAAPs. Reoperations and complications after ORIF of ankle fractures were identified using the PearlDiver database from January 2007 to December 2011...

Arthroscopic repair of the lateral ankle ligament using the anchor system has been increasingly reported. We treated a 39-year-old woman who suffered from pain and instability in her left ankle joint. She was diagnosed with chronic ankle instability and an osteochondral lesion of the talar dome. For this patient, arthroscopic repair of the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) was performed. Standard anteromedial and anterolateral portals were placed, and excision of the osteochondral fragment and microfracture were performed...

Gout is a condition that commonly affects the foot and ankle, and practitioners who treat these structures should be aware of the methods to diagnose and treat this form of arthritis. Practitioners also need to recognize extra-articular manifestations of the disease. Although the acutely red, hot, swollen joint is a common presentation, chronic tophaceous gout can be associated with pain, nodule formation, and cutaneous compromise. Since the underlying causes that lead to excessive monosodium urate deposition may be treatable, early and accurate diagnosis can be very beneficial and may even prevent articular degeneration...

We performed a meta-analysis to (1) compare surgical and non-surgical treatment methods for repair of acute rupture of the Achilles tendon, in terms of the re-rupture rate, incidence of complications other than re-rupture, functional outcomes, and proportion of patients returning to previous levels of sporting activities, and (2) explore the difference in the re-rupture rate if proven early functional rehabilitation protocols were followed. PubMed, EMBASE, Medline, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases were searched to identify randomized clinical trials...

The purpose of our study was to identify the opioid-prescribing practices after operative treatment of isolated pilon fractures at a level 1 trauma center. Patients ≥ 18 years of age with an operatively treated isolated pilon fracture between 2005 and 2015 were identified. Total morphine milligram equivalents (MMEs) were then calculated. Mean and standard deviations were calculated for patients without a history of opiate use and for patients with a history of opiate use within 1 year prior to injury. Data were obtained from the State Controlled Substance Monitoring Database...

Total ankle replacement can be a viable option for patients with end-stage ankle arthritis associated with coronal plane deformity. With proper ankle balancing, a well-aligned ankle implant can be maintained over time and provide successful patient outcomes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate radiographic and subjective outcomes in patients with ankle arthritis along with coronal plane deformity who underwent total ankle arthroplasty with a 3-piece mobile-bearing implant. Our primary inclusion criterion was patients who demonstrated more than 5° of tibiotalar coronal deformity in either varus or valgus direction...

The human foot plays an important role in supporting body weight, maintaining postural balance, and absorbing ground reaction forces. Although many studies have indicated that a causal relationship exists between foot structure and alterations in lower extremity kinematics, there is little evidence regarding the possible association of foot structure with strength of muscles that move the ankle and physical performance. A total of 67 adult men with a mean age of 51.19 ± 8.82 years participated in this study...

Diabetic foot ulcer is a common chronic complication of diabetes mellitus. In addition to conventional primary therapy, there are adjuvant therapy methods such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the healing of diabetic foot ulcer wounds. The present study aimed to determine the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in diabetic foot ulcers based on Wagner classification. It was performed retrospectively from prospectively collected data. One hundred thirty patients with diabetic foot ulcers were assessed in 2 groups: 1 group received hyperbaric oxygen therapy; the other group did not...

Charcot neuroarthropathy is a rare but often difficult to manage disease in the neuropathic patient. Early signs such as unremarkable edema, marginal trauma, or minor infection can activate a cascade of bony destruction and lead to gross prominence or deformity, with dire consequences. The exact molecular mechanism is poorly understood. Current theory states that an inflammatory reaction leads to the activation of osteoclasts mediated by specific cytokines. Our study sought to test the genetic expression of certain biomarkers in diabetic patients with and without Charcot neuroarthropathy compared with patients with and without diabetes or neuropathy...

The purpose of the present study was to biomechanically compare the primary stability of our formerly described inside-out plate fixation to the classic double screw fixation for scarf osteotomy in the treatment of hallux valgus. We performed 20 scarf osteotomies on first metatarsal composite bone models. One half were fixed using a double screw technique and the other half using a locking plate inside-out technique. Using a testing device to simulate the physiologic load, the specimen was loaded until failure, and the load at failure, displacement at failure, and work at failure were recorded...
