INTRODUCTION: A lateral ankle sprain is one of the most frequent reasons for consultation at the emergency trauma unit. Numerous surgical procedures have been described with long-term outcomes that differ. HYPOTHESIS: The long-term results of anatomical repair of the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) and the calcaneofibular (CFL) ligament are better, with less secondary radiological osteoarthritis than non-anatomical repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A review of the literature after a minimum follow-up of 10 years was performed to analyze the clinical and radiological results of direct anatomical repair (Broström, Duquennoy) and non-anatomical repair (Watson Jones, Evans, Castaing)...

BACKGROUND: Perpendicular access to the posterolateral talar dome for the management of osteochondral defects is difficult. We examined exposure available from each of four surgical approaches. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Four surgical approaches were performed on 9 Thiel-embalmed cadavers: anterolateral approach with arthrotomy; anterolateral approach with anterior talo-fibular ligament (ATFL) release; anterolateral approach with antero-lateral tibial osteotomy; and anterolateral approach with lateral malleolus osteotomy...

BACKGROUND: This study compared outcomes after treatment of acute Achilles tendon (AT) rupture via percutaneous suturing, with those after chronic AT rupture treated via open reconstruction. METHODS: This retrospective study included 30 patients who underwent either percutaneous suturing for acute AT rupture (group AR, n=16) or open reconstruction for chronic AT rupture (group CR, n=14). Function was evaluated by calf muscle circumference, and endurance through isokinetic measurement and single-leg heel-rise test...

BACKGROUND: Dorsal closing wedge calcaneal osteotomy is a technique for the treatment of Haglund's triad, which is considered a safe procedure with good results. However, one of the complications that could lead to revision operation is the nonunion of the osteotomy and failure of osteosynthesis. This is attributed to instability of the osteotomy site and proximal migration of the posterior calcaneal process due to breakage of plantar bone-bridge at the apex of the wedge osteotomy. METHODS: This study presents a technical tip that helps the surgeon to avoid the breakage of the plantar hinge of the os calcis which is believed that causes instability of the osteotomy...

BACKGROUND: Despite being a common condition, there are no objective measures in the literature to reflect the burden of pes planus on affected individuals. Our primary objective was to evaluate this burden by recruiting a sample from the general population using validated utility outcome measures. METHODS: Participants were recruited online and filled a questionnaire to help measure the health burden of pes planus. Three recognized utility outcome scores were used to compare the health burden of monocular blindness, binocular blindness, and pes planus...

The relative benefits of surgical and conservative treatment of Achilles tendon rupture are widely debated. With modern conservative management protocols, the re-rupture risk appears to fall to one similar to surgical repair with negligible loss of function. Conservative management typically employs a period of time in an equinus cast with sequential ankle dorsiflexion in a functional orthosis. The optimal duration of immobilisation and rate of dorsiflexion is unknown. We aimed to quantify the change in Achilles tendon approximation achieved in common immobilisation techniques to assist the design of rehabilitation protocols...

BACKGROUND: Soft tissue release for hallux valgus correction is traditionally performed through a dorsal first web space incision. We performed a single surgeon series review of hallux valgus correction with Scarf±Akin osteotomy and lateral release using a single medial incision. METHODS: 192 feet were included. Patient satisfaction survey was conducted at the time of study. Pre-operative and final post-operative radiographic data obtained. RESULTS: All radiological parameters had statistically significant improvement [p<0...

BACKGROUND: Talar osteochondral lesions (OLT) occur frequently in ankle sprains and fractures. We hypothesize that matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI) will have a low reoperation rate and high patient satisfaction rate in treating OLT less than 2.5cm2 . METHODS: A systematic review was registered with PROSPERO and performed with PRISMA guidelines using three publicly available free databases. Clinical outcome investigations reporting OLT outcomes with levels of evidence I-IV were eligible for inclusion...

REVIEW
N P McGoldrick, E P Murphy, S R Kearns
BACKGROUND: Talar osteochondral lesions are more common than has been previously recognized. Optimal treatment remains unclear and the subject of much debate in the literature. Although reparative techniques such as microfracture have produced initial good results and remain the gold standard in the management of these lesions, the literature is deficient in long-term data. Recently, techniques focused on enhancing the local biological environment have been developed which have demonstrated promising outcomes...

BACKGROUND: It is thought that arthroscopic ankle fusion offers improved outcomes over open fusion in terms of functional outcomes, time to fusion, length of stay and fewer complications. However, there are doubts about whether correction of established severe deformity can be achieved using the arthroscopic approach. METHODS: A retrospective review of medical records and radiographs at our hospital identified consecutive tibio-talar ankle fusions between April 2009 and March 2014 with minimum 1 year follow up...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this anatomical study to was to determine the relationship of the structures involved in the arthroscopic repair of the anterior talofibular ligament. METHODS: Dissection of fifteen lower leg cadaveric specimens was made and distances in the anterior direction from the reference-point at the lateral malleolus origin of the anterior talofibular ligament were measured, to the talar insertion of the ligament, to the superficial peroneal nerve at 60° and 90° in relation to the lateral malleolus axis in the sagittal plane, and to the inferior extensor retinaculum...

BACKGROUND: To investigate the effectiveness of tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis with a retrograde nail and allograft in limb salvage surgery for patients with distal tibia osteosarcoma. METHODS: 5 patients diagnosed as distal tibia osteosarcoma underwent ankle arthrodesis with a retrograde nail in our hospital. During the follow-up, radiographic views of the ankle joint were taken in two planes to assess bone healing and axis alignment. Other measurements of outcomes included procedure-related complications, local recurrence, and metastasis...

REVIEW

Morton's neuroma is one of the most common causes of metatarsalgia. Despite this, it remains little studied, as the diagnosis is clinical with no reliable instrumental diagnostics, and each study may deal with incorrect diagnosis or inappropriate treatment, which are difficult to verify. The present literature review crosses all key points, from diagnosis to surgical and nonoperative treatment, and recurrences. Nonoperative treatment is successful in a limited percentage of cases, but it can be adequate in those who want to delay or avoid surgery...

Tonio Gottlieb, Kaj Klaue
BACKGROUND: There is no universal approach to surgery aftercare among foot and ankle surgeons. Although infections following foot and ankle surgery are rare, soft tissue healing can be jeopardized after extensive and multiple approaches. METHODS: We defined a precise fixation technique of the foot and ankle in the immediate post-operative phase using what we call "the Jones dressing cast". This technique is a modification of the Jones dressing bandage...

Foot and ankle injections are useful diagnostic and therapeutic tools, particularly when the pain etiology is uncertain. A variety of foot and ankle injuries and pathologies, including degenerative joint disease, plantar fasciitis and different tendinopathies are amenable to injections. Understanding the foot and ankle anatomical landmarks, a thorough physical exam and knowledge of the different injection techniques is key for a successful approach to different pathologies. The objective of this study is to review the use of foot and ankle injections in the orthopaedic literature, present the readers with the senior author's experience and provide a comprehensive clinical guideline to the most common foot and ankle diagnostic and therapeutic injections...

BACKGROUND: To examine the safety and efficacy of Masquelet's technique as a surgical method for treating the first metatarsophalangeal joint in cases of gout accompanied by a massive bone defect. METHODS: From January 2010 to January 2016, eleven patients (7 males and 4 females; mean age 33.1 years; range, 23-43 years) received surgical treatment for a first metatarsophalangeal joint tophus which caused a serious bone defect. The first metatarsophalangeal bone defects ranged from 3-6cm, or nearly 50% of the length of normal bone...

BACKGROUND: Surgical management of chronic Tendo Achillis (TA) ruptures usually requires tendon grafting procedures. Several techniques have been described. We examined the outcome of three different less invasive (incisions length less than 3 cm) tendon transfer techniques in the management of patients with a chronic rupture of the TA. METHODS: Of 62 patients (39 males and 23 females; mean age 44.8 years; range 29.3-62 years) with chronic TA ruptures managed operatively, 21 patients had a ≥6cm gap and underwent free ipsilateral semitendinosus (ST) graft (21 patients), whereas patients with smaller gaps had either ipsilateral peroneus brevis (PB) (20 patients) or ipsilateral flexor hallucis longus (FHL) transfer (21 patients)...
