Presence of underlying metatarsus deformity is known to negatively affect the outcome of hallux valgus corrective surgery. Yet there are many other factors that also affect final outcomes. In order to address the potential relationships between variables, we attempted to evaluate the association of metatarsus adductus with surgical outcomes, independent of other common factors used in evaluation of hallux valgus deformity. We enrolled 154 patients who had undergone hallux valgus corrective surgery and recorded their pre- and postoperative intermetatarsal (IM12) and hallux valgus (HVA) angles, preoperative Engel's angle, and type of hallux valgus procedure...

INTRODUCTION: Distal fibula fractures are common orthopaedic injuries that often require open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) to anatomically reduce the fracture and minimize the risk of posttraumatic arthritis. In certain clinical situations, stouter fixation may be advantageous to decrease the risk of fixation failure. In this study, the authors report on 12 patients who underwent distal fibula ORIF with 2 one-third tubular plates. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twelve consecutive patients who underwent distal fibula ORIF with 2 one-third tubular plates were retrospectively reviewed...

Intraosseous epidermal inclusion cysts (IEpC) are benign bone tumors that often present in the phalanges of the fingers, but rarely are seen in the lower extremity. These tumors often present following surgery, and have a similar clinical and radiographic presentation to osteomyelitis. The lack of defining characteristics makes preoperative diagnosis of these tumors very difficult. It is crucial to differentiate these tumors from malignant lesions with similar presentation. This case study presents our treatment of this osseous tumor and reviews the available literature describing this condition...

PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to determine whether lateral soft-tissue release (LSTR) has a beneficial or detrimental effect on the outcome of distal Chevron first metatarsal osteotomy (DCMO) in the treatment of moderate hallux valgus (HV). METHODS: We compared the effect of different surgical treatments in 2 groups of patients: group I (23 patients, 25 feet, average age of 55 [from 43 to 77] years) was subjected to DCMO only, whereas group II (18 patients, 23 feet, average age of 59 [from 52 to 70] years]) was subjected to DCMO with LSTR...

Surgical case volume during orthopaedic surgical residency is a concern among trainees and program directors alike. With an ongoing trend toward further subspecialization and the rapid development of new techniques and devices, the breadth of procedures that residents are exposed to continues to increase. Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education surgical case logs from 2009 to 2013 for graduating orthopaedic surgery residents were examined to assess the national averages of orthopaedic procedures logged by graduating orthopaedic surgery residents in the leg/ankle and foot/toes categories...

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...

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...

Lisfranc injury fixation or arthrodesis typically involves the reduction and fixation of several tarsometatarsal joints with either screws or a plate and screw constructs. A successful fixation or arthrodesis of the Lisfranc joint requires proper screw placement from the medial cuneiform to the base of the second metatarsal. This is typically done free-hand; however, we describe use of an anterior cruciate ligament guide to help maintain reduction and assist with drill trajectory for more accurate screw or suture button construct placement...

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. This repair was augmented with human acellular dermal matrix allograft (Graftjacket, Wright Medical Technology, Memphis, TN)...

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. LEVELS OF EVIDENCE: Level V: Case report/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)...

INTRODUCTION: Structural fresh osteochondral allograft transfer is an appropriate treatment option for large osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs), specifically lesions involving the shoulder of the talus. Sparse literature exists regarding functional outcome following this surgery in high-demand populations. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Over a 2-year period, a single surgeon performed 8 structural allograft transfers for treatment of large OLTs in an active duty US military population...

BACKGROUND: The hypothesis of this study is that a sprain or tear of 1 or more of the 3 syndesmotic ligaments will result in a significant change in the osseous anatomy relationship when comparing injured to uninjured syndesmosis. Our secondary objective was to determine whether injuries to the syndesmosis as diagnosed on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) could be found using static imaging. METHODS: This is a descriptive radiological study of ankle MRI reports over a 12-year period, from 2 different institutions, and divided in two groups: normal and injured syndesmotic ligaments...

This is a retrospective study (n = 39) evaluating the postoperative outcomes of patients with mild to moderate preoperative anemia who underwent a hindfoot and/or ankle arthrodesis. In the study, 32 patients did not have preoperative anemia, and 7 had preoperative anemia. Mortality, length of hospital stay, blood transfusions, deep-vein thrombosis, infection, time to union, malunion, delayed union, nonunion, and ulceration were of particular interest. Comparative analyses between patients with preoperative anemia and those without were performed utilizing the independent samples t-test or by the nonparametric Mann-Whitney U-test...

Local anesthetic use for wound infusions, single injection, and continuous nerve blocks for postoperative analgesia is well established. No study has investigated the effect of a continuous block of the saphenous and superficial peroneal nerves at the level of the ankle joint following first ray surgery. A double blind randomized controlled trial was designed. One hundred patients with hallux valgus and rigidus requiring surgical correction were recruited and randomized to receive a postoperative continuous infusion at the ankle of normal saline or ropivacaine for 24 hours...
