Anterior arthroscopic tibiotalar arthrodesis has been well codified. A posterior approach with the patient in prone position is indicated when the anterior approach is precluded by soft tissue issues or for a 1-step procedure associated with posterior subtalar fusion. In an anatomic study, we assessed the feasibility of posterior arthroscopic tibiotalar fusion and sought to determine the arthroscopy entry points, mortise cartilage freshening quality, and risk of osseous, tendinous, vascular, and neural complications...

The fine dissection of nerves and blood vessels in the tarsal tunnel is necessary for clinical operations to provide anatomical information. A total of 60 feet from 30 cadavers were dissected. Two imaginary reference lines that passed through the tip of the medial malleolus were applied. A detailed description of the branch pattern and the corresponding position of the posterior tibial nerve, posterior tibial artery, medial calcaneal nerve and medial calcaneal artery was provided, and the measured data were analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: The use of multiple small flaps linked in a "chain-linked" flap microanastomosed chimeric system is recommended in distal hand and digital defects reconstruction. The aim of this study is to demonstrates our experience utilizing microsurgical fabrication, multi-lobed and linking combined flaps for the reconstruction of hand degloving injuries with complex multidigit soft tissue defects. METHODS: Microanastomosed chimeric flap systems using ALT and DPA modified designed flaps were combined in five selections to cover extensive soft tissue defects involving the hands and multiple digits of 39 patients (M:F - 36:3) from October 2009 to February 2013...

A pediatric patient with critical limb ischemia secondary to antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is reported. A 14-year-old male underwent extensive evaluation for worsening right lower extremity pain and ulcerative lesions of his right foot. He was discovered to have proximal occlusion of the superficial femoral artery (SFA), the distal popliteal artery, the anterior tibial artery at the mid-calf, and the posterior tibial artery at the ankle. Laboratory analysis revealed a diagnosis of APS, and he underwent a common femoral artery to above-knee-popliteal artery bypass with reversed greater saphenous graft...

OBJECTIVE: Although it is possible to find studies that analyze the velocity of blood flow in different arteries, the reliability of Doppler ultrasound on peripheral arteries has not yet been completely established. Our objective was to evaluate intra- and inter-rater reliability of the measurement of blood flow velocity by Doppler ultrasound of brachial, radial, popliteal, and posterior tibial arteries. METHODS: Fifty healthy individuals of both genders, aged between 18 and 45 years, were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Isolated gastrocnemius contracture (IGC) is associated with various foot and ankle pathologies. To address the problem of IGC, a number of gastrocnemius lengthening procedures have been described. Although proximal medial gastrocnemius recession (PMGR) has shown to be an effective operative treatment for IGC, it poses risks to various anatomic structures around the knee joint and requires the patient to be positioned prone. As an alternative, we proposed to release the medial gastrocnemius at the division between the proximal one-third and distal two-thirds of the gastrocnemius muscle to correct equinus contracture, while minimizing risk to other structures...

True aneurysm of the tibial arteries is a rare clinical condition. We report the case of a 67-year-old man who presented with a gradual onset of right calf swelling and pain. Imaging revealed large aneurysms arising from the proximal peroneal arteries bilaterally, measuring 7.4cm and 4cm on the right and left respectively. A detailed medical history, clinical examination and laboratory investigations did not identify evidence of an underlying cause. A surgical reconstruction with an interposition vein graft was successfully performed...

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a rapidly worsening global epidemic over the last thirty-five years. The increased prevalence of DM has changed the phenotypic expression of atherosclerotic limb threatening ischemia (LTI), resulting in an increase in lesions in the tibial vessels. These patients are also afflicted with peripheral neuropathy, foot deformities, and medial calcification of the vasculature. In response to the evolving phenotype of atherosclerosis, newer minimally invasive tools and techniques have been developed to improve the blood supply in LTI...

INTRODUCTION: and Objectives: Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have been shown to cause changes in carotid artery duplex-derived flow velocity waveforms; however, possible effects on lower extremity arterial duplex (LEAD) findings have not been characterized. We sought to characterize LEAD findings in patients with LVADs to establish a basis for vascular laboratory interpretation of LEAD in patients with LVADs. METHODS: Retrospective single institution review of all patients with LEAD performed after LVAD implantation from 2003-2014...

AIM: The effect of nitroglycerin on proper arterial stiffness of the arterial tree has not been fully clarified. The cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI), which is an application of the stiffness parameter β theory on the arterial tree from the origin of the aorta to the ankle, was developed recently. Furthermore, the stiffness of the aorta (heart-thigh β (htBeta)) and of the femoral-tibial arteries (thigh to ankle β (taBeta)) could be monitored by applying the same theory. The effects of nitroglycerin on CAVI, htBeta, and taBeta were studied comparing the values of healthy people and those of arteriosclerotic patients...

This is a report of a 64-year-old man who had undergone a high tibial osteotomy (HTO) 17 years ago of his right knee for medial compartment osteoarthritis; 5 days later, he received a below-knee amputation owing to a missed popliteal artery injury at the time of the HTO. We elected to perform a total knee replacement (TKR) for progressive arthritis of the ipsilateral knee 17 years after the transtibial amputation. Although there is a plethora of literature regarding TKR in the contralateral knee of amputees, there is a paucity of data of TKR in the ipsilateral knee...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to assess the accuracy of a Fast Doppler protocol for the examination of an injured lower limb, namely 2-Point Fast Doppler (2PFD), in order to rapidly triage arterial lesions after penetrating trauma. METHODS: The presence of flow and the aspects of the Doppler waveform of the dorsalis pedis artery (DPA) and posterior tibial artery (PTA) of the injured lower limb (2PFD) were evaluated immediately before the execution of a standardized Color Duplex Doppler (SD) evaluation in 149 limbs of 140 patients with gunshot penetrating injuries...

The ability to improve or restore blood flow and promote healing in ischemic tissue has many potential clinical applications. Augmentation by direct delivery of growth factors may further enhance results, but requires a method for sustained delivery. In this study, we have tested the ability of adeno-associated virus 9 (AAV9) delivered within the lumen of a porcine artery to transfect the vessel and produce a desired product. The marker chosen was green fluorescent protein (GFP) (Ke et al., 2011). In 4 farm pigs the cranial tibial artery was surgically exposed...

We present the case of a patient with a history of aortobifemoral grafting who presented with left lower extremity ischemic rest pain. Aortofemoral angiography was performed through a left radial access and showed a long, calcified total occlusion of the left superficial femoral artery (SFA) and a subtotal popliteal occlusion. The popliteal artery and SFA were crossed retrogradely through a 4-Fr anterior tibial access; the retrograde devices went subintimally and did not reenter at the common femoral level...

Vascularized free fibula transfer remains the gold standard for reconstruction of large segmental diaphyseal defects of the upper extremity. In the pediatric patient, before skeletal maturity, free fibula transfer with the fibular head provides an active physis for growth and an articular interface for glenohumeral joint reconstruction. Clinical and cadaveric studies have demonstrated that the vascular supply to the fibular head originates, in most cases, from the anterior tibial system. However, anatomical variation exists, and we report a case in which a vascularized fibula autograft including the physis was transferred on the peroneal artery in a 5-year-old patient with Ewing's sarcoma...

INTRODUCTION AND AIM: Surgical tibial bypass for critical limb ischemia is associated with significant morbidity, mortality, and graft failure, whereas percutaneous angioplasty and stenting has promising results. The objective of this study was the investigation of the long term results of below-knee percutaneous angioplasty for restoring straight inline arterial flow in patients with critical limb ischemia. METHOD: The clinical and angiographic data of 281 consecutive patients with critical limb ischemia treated by PTA between 2008 and 2011 was evaluated in a prospective register...

BACKGROUND: The evaluation and treatment of heel pressure injuries are a significant and expensive sequela of the aging population. Although the workup of patients with lower extremity tissue loss usually involves an assessment of the arterial blood flow by means of noninvasive vascular testing, the results may be misleading in patients with heel pressure injuries when the ankle-brachial index (ABI) does not provide direct information about perfusion of the rearfoot. The objective of this retrospective, observational investigation was to determine if noninvasive vascular testing provides accurate and reliable results in patients with heel pressure injuries...

Early detection of impaired blood flow and microvascular functioning is important to prevent ulceration in diabetic patients. This paper aims to first determine if thermal video in conjunction with Eulerian Video Magnification (EVM) can be used to find the pedal pulse rate, and reveal patterns indicative of the foot's microvascular health. Thermal video was captured of a healthy adult's foot while a Doppler ultrasound captured pedal pulse. Another thermal video was captured of a patient's heels. These videos were subjected to EVM, areas of interest were defined and the mean intensity signal was calculated temporally, within each defined area...

Although the foot and ankle derives its arterial supply from a combination of the anterior tibial artery (ATA), posterior tibial artery (PTA), and peroneal artery (PA), the focus of clinical examination techniques and noninvasive vascular testing is primarily on the ATA and PTA and not on the PA. The objectives of the present investigation were to evaluate the feasibility of incorporating an assessment of the PA into a noninvasive vascular testing protocol and to collect normative data of pressure measurements of the PA at the ankle...
