REVIEW
Justin J Fleming
The reamed intramedullary (IM) technique has many benefits. However, open plating is the most commonly used technique. Previously, IM stabilization was reserved for fibular fractures, which were given lower priority, and generally associated with injuries to the distal tibia or instances in which the soft tissue envelope was unsuitable for an open approach. This article reviews the literature and the level of evidence, and presents case examples and operative technique.

REVIEW
Michael W Downey, Ted C Lai, Justin J Fleming
At present there is controversy regarding the appropriate treatment of severely comminuted fractures of the lower extremity. Even with near-perfect anatomic reduction of severely comminuted fractures, development of posttraumatic arthritis is still present at an increased rate. Primary fusion of comminuted fractures of the foot and ankle creates successful and predictable outcomes, which dismisses the chance of developing posttraumatic arthritis and decreases complications and the need for revisional procedures...

REVIEW
Ted C Lai, Justin J Fleming
Surgical treatment of distal tibia fractures can present as a difficult task. Intramedullary nailing (IMN), external fixation, and open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) have displayed various complications ranging from a high rate of knee morbidity with IMN to wound complications and infection with ORIF. Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) has been used to decrease development of these complications. MIPO respects the soft tissue envelope along with maintaining the biological environment needed for proper osseous healing...

The indications for arthroscopy have expanded over the years. Arthroscopic-assisted open reduction internal fixation in the setting of acute trauma is gaining popularity with foot and ankle surgeons. It serves to facilitate direct visualization of fracture fragments and allows for precise articular reduction with minimal soft tissue insult. Current evidence reports a high incidence of chondral injury with ankle fractures. Arthroscopy performed at the time of open reduction internal fixation allows for joint inspection and potential treatment of these posttraumatic defects...

REVIEW
Ryan B Rigby, Ryan T Scott
Acute deltoid injuries may occur with ankle fractures. They are often left to heal without repair, possibly leading to chronic medial ankle instability. Stress radiographs identify the need for surgical repair of fractures or soft tissue damage. Gravity stress views have benefits over manually stressing the ankle. MRI can explore the extent of medial soft tissue injuries. Arthroscopy can evaluate and potentially treat deltoid injuries. Interposition of the deltoid may preclude adequate fracture reduction. Except with deltoid tear, fractures should be reduced and fixated, then the deltoid assessed...

REVIEW
Spencer J Monaco, Michael Calderone, Justin J Fleming
Calcaneal fractures account for up to 75% of all foot fractures and 1% to 2% of all fractures. Approximately 75% of calcaneal fractures are intraarticular, resulting in a prolonged recovery, more pain, and disability. The most common mechanism of injury includes falls from a height and motor vehicle accidents. This article reviews studies that compare nonoperative with operative treatment. The literature continues to support surgical intervention; however, these injuries can still be managed nonoperatively in certain clinical scenarios...

REVIEW

Fractures of the talus are significant injuries with associated significant complications where the recovery zenith is less frequently good to excellent, and more commonly fair to satisfactory. These outcomes are a consequence of combinations of the inherent intrinsic and surrounding anatomy, technical and logistic difficulties in adequate fracture access, and the high-energy mechanisms typically associated with these injuries that further traumatize the surrounding tissues. This article reviews and provides current management recommendations for these devastating injuries...

REVIEW
J Randolph Clements, François Dijour, Wesley Leong
The tarsal navicular is a critical component of the foot's medial longitudinal arch. Injuries to the navicular have significant long-term functional consequences. In addition to stress fractures, acute injuries to the navicular include acute avulsion, tuberosity, and body fractures. Nonoperative treatment is the mainstay for avulsion injuries and nondisplaced body fractures. Open reduction and internal fixation is performed to achieve anatomic reduction in the other situations. Common complications following operative intervention include pain, stiffness, post-traumatic arthritis, avascular necrosis, nonunion, and hindfoot deformity...

Prolonged or incomplete healing of the foot and ankle can pose significant challenges. Therefore, investigators have begun searching for alternative treatment strategies. With advances in tissue engineering, decellularized human placental connective tissue matrix has been suggested as a means to achieve more rapid and complete healing for various soft tissue and bone procedures. Basic science and clinical studies have shown that decellularized human placental connective tissue matrix can support regenerative healing through cellular migration, accelerated tissue remodeling, and the establishment of functional tissue...

Total ankle replacement (TAR) has evolved over the past decade as a treatment for end-stage ankle arthritis with improved survivorship. Despite the improving outcomes, ankle deformity represents a challenge to the foot and ankle surgeon with increased risk of implant failure. The use of preoperative computer-assisted guidance has led to better understanding the 3-dimensional ankle anatomy and associated deformities and allows for reproducible, anatomic placement of the TAR components.

Total ankle arthroplasty is an increasingly popular procedure to address tibiotalar joint arthritis. Implant design and the rationale behind it have changed throughout the years. Newer generation implants allow for minimal resection of bone and use fixed-bearing technology. Long-term follow-up multicenter studies will determine the lifetime of these devices and their effectiveness in addressing pain and improving function for patients with endstage tibiotalar arthritis.

Surgical correction of complex foot and ankle deformities secondary to Charcot neuroarthropathy remains a significant surgical challenge. New technological advancements in hardware have allowed for the use of augmented fixation techniques in midfoot deformity correction, including the use of indication-specific locking plates and beaming techniques that offer enhanced stability. Severe hindfoot deformity management can employ the use of internal fixation, including intramedullary hindfoot nails and circular external fixation frames for limb salvage...

Advancement in orthopedics have been increasing rapidly. The most important advances have been in fixation. With time, metallic hardware will begin to be replaced by materials that become one with the body. This progress will not only aid in the repair process it will allow permanent and improved reinforcement of the fixated region. Biointegrative technology is a promising new generation of materials capable of achieving this goal. Over time, it is expected that plates, screws, pins, interference screws, and even possibly joint replacements will incorporate into patients' bodies, negating the need for hardware removal and adding structure and stability to an iatrogenically weakened area...

Arthrodesis of the ankle or foot is a common procedure for chronic pain and disability. Nonunion remains a prevalent complication among arthrodesis procedures. Some patients present with an inherent risk of developing a nonunion. Allograft biologics have gained popularity in an effort to reduce complications such as nonunion. Various biologics bring unique properties while maintaining a singular purpose. Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) may be introduced into a fusion site to facilitate healthy bony consolidation...

W Bret Smith, Paul Dayton, Robert D Santrock, Daniel J Hatch
Hallux-abducto-valgus or "bunion" surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures for the foot and ankle specialist. As our understanding of the hallux-abducto-valgus deformity has grown, it is becoming clear that the anatomic CORA of the deformity may lie at the tarsometatarsal joint. There is also the component of the 3-dimensional nature of the deformity that may be best addressed at this CORA. With these issues in mind, it was necessary to address the shortcomings of the traditional Lapidus procedure and progress toward more consistent, instrumented steps that could address the 3-dimensional nature of the deformity...

Bone marrow aspirate has been used for the adjunctive treatment of numerous pathologic conditions in orthopedics. Viable cells are found in aspiration from many different anatomic regions of the body. Concentration of these cells has been shown to improve healing due to the increased number of certain important cells. This article discusses the mechanisms involved and reviews the literature.
