Gonzalo Concheiro Barreiro, Arantza Gadañón García, Jose María Giráldez Domínguez
BACKGROUND: The term brachimetatarsia refers to an abnormal shortening of the metatarsal bones as a result of early closure of the growth plate. The deformity, which may be congenital, idiopathic or secondary to surgery or trauma, may result in functional as well as cosmetic alterations, which require correction by an orthopedic surgeon. The purpose of this report is to illustrate the possibility of treating this condition by means of a minimally invasive technique which affords results as satisfactory as those of conventional techniques but with fewer complications...

Lateral column lengthening osteotomy is very useful surgical technique in treating stage II of pes planovalgus deformity of the foot. Either autograft from the iliac crest or allograft can be used for this purpose. In our technique we describe a novel method of obtaining bone graft locally from the calcaneus and therefore avoiding complications and morbidity associated with iliac crest graft.

BACKGROUND: Surgical repair of symptomatic chronic Achilles tendon (TA) rupture is a challenging problem due to the presence of a large defect between tendon edges. We report the results of surgical repair of symptomatic chronic TA rupture by synthetic graft augmentation. METHODS: Seven consecutive patients with a symptomatic chronic TA rupture underwent surgical repair by VY plasty and augmentation with bio-absorbable synthetic graft (Artelon(®)). In all patients, the intraoperative tendon gap after debridement was more than 5cm (Myerson Grade 3)...

Ewout S Veltman, Cheriel J Hofstad, Angelique G H Witteveen
BACKGROUND: Many PROMs used for evaluation of ankle osteoarthritis are not validated for this purpose. We hypothesize that frequently used PROMs have an early ceiling or floor effect. METHODS: We prospectively collected data from patients with ankle osteoarthritis between 2011 and 2013. At baseline visit patients completed the Foot and Ankle Outcome Score, the Ankle Osteoarthritis Score, the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society scale, a visual analogue scale for pain and quality of life...

BACKGROUND: The treatment for the failure of a first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP1) prosthesis can be complex. There is no consensus regarding the ideal treatment. One of the main issues is the available bone stock after prosthesis removal. The aim of the study was to report the clinical and radiographic results for MTP1 arthrodesis with autologous calcaneus bone graft (bone-block fusion) as a revision procedure of a previous MTP1 implant failure. METHODS: This study included 12 patients diagnosed with failure of a MTP1 prosthesis...

BACKGROUND: Silicone implants for first metatarsophalangeal (MTP-1) arthroplasty are regaining popularity, though most studies have long inclusion periods, or short follow-up. The authors aimed to report mid-term outcomes of a cohort that received a third-generation MTP-1 implant at minimum follow-up of 5 years. METHODS: The authors evaluated 70 MTP-1 arthroplasties performed in 64 patients using the Primus™ Flexible Great Toe implant. The indications were hallux rigidus of grade II (10%) and grade III (87...

REVIEW
W J van Zuuren, T Schepers, A Beumer, I Sierevelt, A van Noort, M P J van den Bekerom
Ankle fractures are among the most common fracture types, and 10% of all ankle fractures lead to accessory syndesmotic injury. An injury that is challenging in every respect is syndesmotic instability. Since the range of diagnostic techniques and the therapeutic options is extensive, it still is a controversial subject, despite the abundance of literature. This review aimed to summarize the current knowledge on syndesmotic instability in ankle fractures and to formulate some recommendations for clinical practice...

Raymond P Lee, Sally H S Cheng
Late stage ankle osteoarthritis often presents with debilitating pain. It is common to find osteophytes and loose body formation around the joint. Total ankle arthroplasty can preserve joint mobility and pain relieve for such patient. However, when trying to remove the osteophytes and loose bodies at the posterior ankle joint, there is risk of damaging posterior structures such as the neurovascular bundle during the procedure. We are presenting a case where the posterior loose bodies remained untouched during the operation, and patient showed spontaneous resolution of the lesions with time...

BACKGROUND: Sagittal implant malalignment after total ankle replacement (TAR) has been considered to be a possible cause for premature implant failure. In a prior study, the change over time of the tibiotalar ratio (T-T ratio), which is the ratio between the posterior longitudinal talar length and the full longitudinal talar length, was assessed in 66 TARs where an unconstrained, mobile-bearing implant was implanted. The analysis documented an increase in the T-T ratio between 2 and 6 months post-surgery (on average from 34...
