Christopher W Reb, James F Stenson, Joseph N Daniel
: Tibialis anterior tendon rupture causes substantial morbidity. The present study describes the outcomes of augmented, half-thickness tibialis anterior tendon segment transposition, a novel reconstruction technique. This was an institutional review board-approved retrospective review of 3 patients with surgically treated attritional distal rupture with 1-year follow-up. The postdebridement tendon defect prohibited primary repair and was managed by distal transposition of a half-thickness healthy segment...

BACKGROUND: Many factors are considered predictors of recurrence after hallux valgus (HV) surgery, including preoperative distal metatarsal articular angle (DMAA). The restoration of the bone and joint alignment would be more important than realigning the cartilaginous surface of the metatarsal head. Therefore, is DMAA correction essential for a good clinical and radiological results after HV surgery? This study aims to illustrate the results of percutaneous forefoot surgery (PFS) for correction of HV deformity without DMAA correction...

Rishin Kadakia, Jeff Konopka, Tristan Rodik, Samra Ahmed, Sameh A Labib
: The talus is the second most common fractured tarsal bone. While their incidence may be low, talus fractures are severe injuries that can lead to long-term disability and pain. Displaced talar body fractures are typically treated through an open approach with the aim of obtaining anatomic reduction and stable fixation. There are several case reports in the literature demonstrating successful management of talus fractures arthroscopically. An arthroscopic approach minimizes soft tissue trauma, which can help decrease postoperative wound complications and infections...

: Here we describe a modified open technique for the repair of a ruptured Achilles tendon using multiple looped sutures with the creation of interdigitating tendon stumps maximizing surface area for suture application as well as allowing for significant tissue overlay. This technique produces a high strength repair that is useful in cases of extensive degeneration or poor-quality tissue. Degenerative tissue may be encountered with chronic ruptures or failed nonoperative treatment, as well as those ruptures that occur at the proximal myotendinous junction...

Eric So, Lee M Hlad
: Neurogenic contracture often results in spastic, nonreducible equinovarus deformity. Rigid contracture leads to pain, instability, and bracing difficulties. This case report details the utilization of the modified Lambrinudi triple arthrodesis intended to create a plantigrade, functional limb that is amenable to an extremity brace in a case of an acquired neurologic clubfoot. LEVELS OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, Level IV: Case report.

BACKGROUND: Interdigital neuroma (IN), otherwise known as Morton's neuroma, is a common cause of metatarsalgia presenting to the elective foot and ankle clinic. Surgical excision of the IN in patients who fail to respond to nonoperative measures is considered to be the gold standard of care in many centers. The Royal College of Pathologists UK recommend that all excised interdigital Morton's neuromas are sent for formal histopathological analysis. We present a study correlating clinical and radiological diagnosis with histopathologic appearances of IN following surgical excision, and question if routine histopathological analysis is warranted...

Lisa Grant, Robert Yoho, Chandana Halaharvi, William Grant
: Charcot fracture pattern (FP) and Charcot dislocation pattern (DP) are 2 distinct collapse patterns identified in Charcot neuroarthropathy of the foot and ankle. These patterns are believed to demonstrate relative differences in central bone mineral density (BMD), which has been theoretically extrapolated to describe local BMD. To assess variation in local bone composition of FP and DP patients, 10 patients, 5 DP and 5 FP were recruited. The patient's age, body mass index (BMI), radiographs, central BMD, local BMD, sRANKL (soluble receptor activator nuclear factor kappa-beta ligand), sRAGE (soluble receptors of advanced glycated end-products), and osteocalcin were measured to determined bone metabolic status and density...

: Outcomes following ankle fracture surgery have been well studied; however, factors associated with surgical wound healing specifically are less clear. We aimed to study the relationship between wound healing and body mass index, as well as other variables following surgical treatment of ankle fractures. There were 127 consecutive, isolated, closed, malleolar ankle fractures treated with open reduction and internal fixation at a level-1 trauma center from 2008 to 2012. Patient, injury, and treatment variables were recorded and clinical records were reviewed to identify wound complications...

BACKGROUND: The foot of a pregnant woman undergoes morphological changes with the advancement of pregnancy. It is important to understand the structural changes of the foot during pregnancy and postpartum because any such change may alter the plantar pressure pattern and the entire foot biomechanics. METHOD: Primigravidae with a gestational age of 12 weeks or less, aged between 18 and 35 years were included in the study. They were prospectively studied across 5 time periods during pregnancy and postpartum...

Rajeev Shukla, Ravi Kant Jain, Shravan Patidar, Nikhil Jain, Pranav Mahajan
INTRODUCTION: Ankle fracture is the most common intra-articular fracture of a weight-bearing joint and accounts for 9% of all fractures. Ankle fractures are classified into 3 subgroups: unimalleolar, bimalleolar, and trimalleolar fractures. Accurate reduction and stable internal fixation is necessary in bimalleolar fractures; otherwise, it may lead to posttraumatic painful restriction of movements or osteoarthritis. The purpose of this study is to assess the functional outcome and results of treatment of neglected bimalleolar fracture...

Akilesh Anand Prakash
: Incisura fibularis (IF) is an important landmark in assessing syndesmotic stability radiologically postinjury. The purpose of this review was to explore the anatomy and morphometrics of this widely used anatomical landmark and to further the understanding of the same. A systematic review was conducted online using PubMed and Google Scholar, per PRISMA guidelines. Predefined eligibility criteria were applied, and the data thus compiled were analyzed. Wide variability in morphometrics and, thus, anatomy of IF were observed in the present review, which was influenced by gender...

Kempland C Walley, Kurt J Hofmann, Brian T Velasco, John Y Kwon
BACKGROUND: While trans-syndesmotic fixation with metal screws is considered the gold standard in treating syndesmotic injuries, controversy exists regarding the need and timing of postoperative screw removal. Formal recommendations have not been well established in the literature and clinical practice is highly variable in this regard. The purpose of this systematic review is to critically examine the most recent literature regarding syndesmotic screw removal in order to provide surgeons an evidence-based approach to management of these injuries...

BACKGROUND: Kirschner wire (K-wire) fixation for correction of hammertoe deformity is the gold standard for hammertoe surgery fixation, the current study compares it to percutaneous surgery with 3M Coban dressings. METHODS: All hammertoe corrections performed were retrospectively reviewed. For the K-wire fixation group: resection arthroplasty of the proximal interphalangeal joint was performed and fixed with a K-wire. The percutaneous technique used involved percutaneous diaphyseal osteotomy of the middle and proximal phalanges combined with tendon release...

Background Articular cartilage lesions of the talus remain a challenging clinical problem because of the lack of natural regeneration and limited treatment options. Microfracture is often the first-line therapy, however lesions larger than 1.5 cm(2) have been shown to not do as well with this treatment method. Methods The objective of this retrospective study was to evaluate the outcomes of iliac crest bone marrow aspirate concentrate/collagen scaffold (ICBMA) and particulated juvenile articular cartilage (PJAC) for larger articular cartilage lesions of the talus...

James M Cottom, Joseph S Baker
: Displaced, intra-articular fractures of the calcaneus result in gross deformity of the hindfoot, which must be reduced during surgical fixation. Described techniques aimed at restoring the normal anatomy of the calcaneus have mostly been focused on percutaneous methods, which are not without complication. Described in this report is a method of anatomic reduction during open reduction and internal fixation of these injuries, which uses a lamina spreader to simultaneously reduce calcaneal varus, restore calcaneal height, reduce the subtalar joint, and restore normal calcaneal width...

: Treatment for rigid mallet toe deformity of the hallux has commonly consisted of arthrodesis of this interphalangeal joint. However, such procedure is not without complications resulting in operative revision. We report on a case of considerable deformity of the distal phalanx of the hallux following hallux interphalangeal joint arthrodesis that underwent revision using a unique crescentic osteotomy technique.

: Purpose The purpose of this study is to review the most recent literature available on the treatment of bunionette (also named tailor's bunion) with percutaneous and minimally invasive techniques. Focusing especially on clinical outcomes, studies related to this type of techniques were examined in order to evaluate the success of this practice that is, fusion rate and complications. The hypothesis is that these techniques are safe and successful procedures. Methods In July 2015, a topical review of the PubMed/MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Google Scholar databases was conducted using the keywords percutaneous (OR mini-invasive OR minimally invasive) AND bunionette (OR tailor's bunion) AND treatment (OR surgery)...

Zachary M Thomas, Kristin J Thomas
: Two-incision endoscopic plantar fasciotomy (EPF) is an accepted surgical technique in the treatment of recalcitrant plantar fasciitis. Single-incision plantar fasciotomy is a relatively new technique in the surgeons' armamentarium; however, it is not without pitfalls, specifically poor visualization. This article aims to help the foot and ankle surgeon make a smooth transition from 2-incision EPF to single-incision EPF while maintaining optimum visualization.

Abhijeet B Kadam, Anoop C Dhamangaonkar
: Giant cell tumor (GCT) or osteoclastoma is a benign, locally aggressive tumor with a tendency to recur. Giant cell tumors typically occur in the epiphysis of long bones, including the distal femur and proximal tibia. They are uncommonly found in the small bones of the foot or ankle, and involvement of talus is rare. The authors present a case of GCT of the talar body in a 21-year-old man, which was diagnosed radiologically by the presence of a well-defined osteolytic lesion involving more than half of the talar body with thinning of the cortices...
