BACKGROUND: Indirect screw fixation of the sustentaculum tali in the lateral-medial direction can be challenging due to the complex calcaneal anatomy. A novel 2-dimensional (2D) projection-based software application detects Kirschner wires (K-wires) and visualizes their intended direction as a colored trajectory. The aim of this prospectively randomized cadaver study was to investigate whether the software would facilitate the indirect K-wire placement in the sustentaculum tali. METHODS: In 20 cadaver foot specimens, K-wires were placed indirectly in the sustentaculum tali by an experienced and an inexperienced surgeon, with and without using the application...

BACKGROUND: Temporary Kirschner wire fixation (K-wire) is a widely used, low-cost fixation method for the correction of hammertoe deformity. Reported complications associated with K-wires prompted the development of new implants over the past decade. However, there is a lack of literature on comparative studies analyzing functional outcomes using validated questionnaires. The purpose of this study was to analyze functional outcomes in patients who had undergone proximal interphalangeal joint fusion using 2 types of intramedullary implant, the Smart Toe and the TenFuse, and to compare them with the outcomes in patients treated with standard K-wire fixation...

BACKGROUND: While ankle arthrodesis is a common treatment for severe ankle osteoarthritis, performing bilateral ankle arthrodesis is controversial because of associated problems, such as severe gait abnormality and bilateral loss of talocrural joint motion. Furthermore, few reports exist regarding the detailed outcomes of bilateral ankle arthrodesis. Therefore, we aimed to compare the outcomes of bilateral ankle arthrodesis with those of unilateral ankle arthrodesis, using both subjective and objective assessments...

BACKGROUND: Tightrope fixation is an emerging technique for syndesmotic fixation with promising results. However, our case series highlights the slippage of Tightrope buttons as a complication of suture button syndesmotic fixation of Weber C malleolar fractures using limited contact dynamic compression (LCDCP) plates. METHODS: We report a series of cases from our database in which slippage of the Tightrope button through the LCDCP holes in Weber C malleolar fractures was noted...

BACKGROUND: The deltoid ligament (DL) is the principal ligamentous stabilizer of the medial ankle joint. Little is known, however, about the contribution of the DL toward stabilizing the syndesmosis. The aim of this study was to arthroscopically evaluate whether the DL contributes to syndesmotic stability in the coronal plane. METHODS: Eight above-knee cadaveric specimens were used in this study. A lateral hook test was performed by applying 100 N of lateral force to the fibula in the intact state and after sequential transection of the DL, anterior-inferior tibiofibular ligament (AITFL), interosseous ligament (IOL), and posterior-inferior tibiofibular ligament (PITFL)...

BACKGROUND: Open reduction and internal fixation of Lisfranc injuries has typically used multiple longitudinal incisions or a single transverse incision to approach the tarso-metatarsal joint (TMTJ). The incidence of wound-related complications is considerable. We describe a novel single-incision approach that utilizes subcutaneous windows to the medial TMTJ. METHODS: A retrospective review identified 150 patients who underwent open reduction and internal fixation for Lisfranc injuries, via the modified dorsal approach, at our center between January 2011 and June 2016...

BACKGROUND: Different osteotomies have been proposed for the treatment of bunionette deformity. Minimally invasive surgery is now increasingly popular for a variety of forefoot conditions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome following fifth minimally invasive distal metatarsal metaphyseal osteotomy (DMMO) for bunionette deformity. METHODS: Nineteen patients (21 feet) who had symptomatic bunionette deformity and failed conservative treatment between 2014 and 2016 were included in this retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: The tibialis anterior tendon has its insertion sites on both the medial and plantar surfaces of the medial cuneiform and the base of the first metatarsal. Operative procedures near those areas, especially at the first metatarsocuneiform joint, may disturb tendon insertions and cause irritation or functional impairment of the tendon. METHODS: Tibialis anterior tendons and their insertion sites were dissected and examined from 46 cadaveric feet (19 female and 27 male cadavers, aged between 33 and 86 years, with a mean of 68...

Jong Hun Baek, Tae Yong Kim, Yoo Beom Kwon, Bi O Jeong
BACKGROUND: Syndesmosis disruptions in the ankle joint are typically treated with anatomic reduction followed by transfixing screw and/or suture button fixation. The purpose of our study was to analyze the effects of the removal of transfixing screws on syndesmosis integrity using plain radiographs and computed tomography (CT) scans. METHODS: Twenty-nine cases (29 patients) who had been treated with transfixing screw fixation for syndesmosis disruptions were studied prospectively...

BACKGROUND: Following Achilles tendon rupture, tendon elongation leads to long term deficits in calf function. A surrogate measure of Achilles tendon length, Achilles tendon resting angle (ATRA), has been described but has not been validated against length measured using ultrasound. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to validate the ATRA against ultrasound. Secondarily, this study aimed to identify the relationship of other factors (tendon mechanical properties, heel-rise test performance) to the ATRA...

BACKGROUND: The os trigonum is known as one of the main causes of posterior ankle impingement. In the literature, a wide variation of occurrence has been reported. METHODS: All foot and/or ankle computed tomography (CT) scans made between January 2012 and December 2013 were reviewed. CT images were assessed, blinded for patient characteristics, for the presence of an os trigonum, size of the os trigonum, and type of os trigonum. In addition, the shape of the lateral tubercle of the posterior talar process was assessed...

BACKGROUND: Particulated juvenile cartilage allograft transplantation (PJCAT) is a novel treatment option for osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs). It is typically employed as a salvage procedure after initial debridement and microfracture has failed as it is theorized to deliver viable hyaline cartilage. We hypothesized that PJCAT would be a safe and effective treatment option for OLTs. METHODS: This is a retrospective case-control study of patients who underwent PJCAT for the treatment of OLTs at a single academic institution...

BACKGROUND: External rotation, lateral, and sagittal stress tests are commonly used to diagnose syndesmotic injuries, but their efficacy remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to characterize applied stresses with fibular motion throughout the syndesmotic injury spectrum. We hypothesized that sagittal fibular motion would have greater fidelity in detecting changes in syndesmotic status compared to mortise imaging. METHODS: Syndesmotic instability was characterized using motion analysis during external rotation, lateral, and sagittal stress tests on cadaveric specimens (n = 9)...
