PURPOSE: The relationship between the duration of operative time (DOT), healing response and patient outcome has not been previously investigated. An enhanced healing response related to DOT may potentiate repair processes, especially in hypovascular and sparsely metabolized musculoskeletal tissues such as tendons. This study aimed to investigate the association between DOT and the metabolic healing response, patient-reported outcome and the rate of post-operative complications after acute Achilles tendon injury...

BACKGROUND: Although arthroscopic surgical treatment of the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint involves painful sesamoid excision, synovectomy, debridement, and partial cheilectomy, no gold standard treatment technique has been defined in the literature for hallux rigidus and focal osteochondral lesions. This study aimed to assess the arthroscopic treatment for early-grade focal osteochondral lesions of the first MTP joint and to determine the impact of arthroscopic microhole drill surgery on foot function and activities of daily living in a group of patients who failed conservative treatment...

BACKGROUND: Perioperative evaluation in peripheral artery disease (PAD) by common vascular diagnostic tools is limited by open wounds, medial calcinosis or an altered collateral supply of the foot. Indocyanine green fluorescent imaging (ICG-FI) has recently been introduced as an alternative tool, but so far a standardized quantitative assessment of tissue perfusion in vascular surgery has not been performed for this purpose. The aim of this feasibility study was to investigate a new software for quantitative assessment of tissue perfusion in patients with PAD using indocyanine green fluorescent imaging (ICG-FI) before and after peripheral bypass grafting...

We present a retrospective review of 8 patients (6 women and 2 men, with an age range of 46-80 years; mean age, 60.2 years) in whom sonography was used to diagnose a calcaneal stress fracture. Sonography was performed because of a clinical suspicion of soft tissue injuries. Two patients were first assessed by standard radiography; for the remaining patients, sonography was the first imaging technique used. Patients were subsequently examined by magnetic resonance imaging, except for 1 patient in whom the diagnosis was made only on a clinical-sonographic correlation...

The management of acute Achilles tendon rupture in elite athletes is a current area of clinical controversy. Recent studies have reported near-equivocal outcomes in patients who undergo either nonsurgical or surgical treatment of Achilles tendon rupture; however, similar functional outcomes may not be observed in elite athletes who are at the highest levels of athletic performance and undergo nonsurgical or surgical treatment of Achilles tendon rupture. Surgeons should understand the risks and benefits of nonsurgical and surgical management of acute Achilles tendon rupture...

OBJECTIVES: Ankle sprains due to landing on an opponent's foot are common in basketball. There is no analysis to date that provides a quantification of this injury mechanism. The aim of this study was to quantify the kinematics of this specific injury mechanism and relate this to lateral ankle ligament biomechanics. DESIGN: Case series. METHODS: The model-based image-matching technique was used to quantify calcaneo-fibular-talar kinematics during four ankle inversion sprain injury incidents in televised NBA basketball games...

BACKGROUND: Osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLT) are difficult to treat because of the poor intrinsic healing capability of articular cartilage. Matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI) has been shown to be a reliable method for treating cartilage lesions that fail to respond to traditional microfracture and debridement. The purpose of this study was to assess 7-year clinical follow-up data of this technique and demonstrate midterm success of this implant. METHODS: A prospective investigation of MACI was performed on 10 patients with OLTs who had failed previous arthroscopic treatment...

BACKGROUND: Arthrodesis of the hallux metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint is commonly done as a primary procedure either to correct severe hallux valgus deformities or for rheumatoid arthritis, hallux rigidus, in patients with neuromuscular disorders and as a salvage procedure for failed bunion surgery or infection. Prominent metalwork frequently can cause soft tissue impingement and thus require removal. In contrast, osteosynthesis with a completely intraosseous implant has the advantage of less damage to the periosteal circulation...

BACKGROUND: Fibular hemimelia is the most common deficiency involving the long bones. Paley classification is based on the ankle joint morphology, identifies the basic pathology, and helps in planning the surgical management. Reconstruction surgery encompasses foot deformity correction and limb length equalization. The SUPERankle procedure is a combination of bone and soft tissue procedures that stabilizes the foot and addresses all deformities. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 29 consecutive patients (29 limb segments), surgically treated between December 2000 and December 2014...

The management of displaced, intra-articular calcaneal fracture represents a surgical challenge to even an experienced orthopedic surgeon. Plate osteosynthesis using an extended lateral approach is complicated by soft tissue problems, while those treated by closed reduction and percutaneous pinning cannot address all the intra-articular fragments sufficiently. The objective of our study is to evaluate restoration of subtalar joint and long-term functional outcomes in intra-articular displaced calcaneal fractures treated with transverse subcondral screws through a small incision on lateral aspect of calcaneus and percutaneously placed axial screws through the calcaneal tuberosity...

BACKGROUND: Lisfranc injuries are often missed initially or not anatomically reduced, leading to midfoot collapse, arthrosis, and pain. Operative management of these injuries is also fraught with complications, particularly with respect to the soft tissues. Wound dehiscence and infection are not uncommon. The goal of this study was to analyze the outcomes of a minimally invasive technique in reduction and percutaneous fixation of low-energy minimally displaced Lisfranc injuries and determine if it is a safe alternative to more traditional, open approaches...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgery is being used increasingly, including for hallux valgus surgery. Despite the growing interest in minimally invasive procedures, there have been few publications on percutaneous chevron/akin (PECA) procedures, and no studies have been published comparing PECA to open scarf/akin osteotomies (SA). METHODS: This was a prospective, randomized study of 50 patients undergoing operative correction of hallux valgus using one of 2 techniques (PECA vs open SA)...

Tendoscopy is an apparently safe and reliable procedure to manage some foot and ankle disorders.The most common foot and ankle tendoscopies are: Achilles; peroneal; and posterior tibial tendon.Tendoscopy may be used as an adjacent procedure to other techniques.Caution is recommended to avoid neurovascular injuries.Predominantly level IV and V studies are found in the literature, with no level I studies still available.There are many promising and evolving endoscopic techniques for tendinopathies around the foot and ankle, but studies of higher levels of evidence are needed to strongly recommend these procedures...

Justin D Orr, Kenneth A Heida
Posteriorly based osteochondral lesions of the talus (OCLTs) are relatively rare, and when they are symptomatic and not amenable to traditional arthroscopic treatment techniques, they may require osteochondral graft transfer procedures, such as the osteochondral autograft transfer system (OATS) procedure. Historically described osteotomies to gain perpendicular access to these OCLTs, while excellent techniques, present many possible postoperative morbidities. This technical tip describes the use of a prone position midline Achilles tendon-splitting approach, a well-described approach to the posterior ankle and hindfoot, to perform osteochondral autograft transfer without need for any malleolar osteotomies...
