BACKGROUND: Recent studies have reported promising clinical results after osteochondral autograft transplantation (OAT) for the treatment of large osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLT). However, no study has yet compared clinical outcomes between primary and secondary OAT for large OLT. PURPOSE: The purpose is to compare clinical outcomes among patients with large OLT who receive primary OAT versus those who receive secondary OAT after failure of marrow stimulation and to identify factors associated with clinical failure...

BACKGROUND: An acute ankle sprain can result in a bony avulsion of the lateral ankle ligaments. The extent of concomitant lesions and subsequent instability patterns are not clearly understood. The high incidence of old avulsion fractures found in symptomatic chronic ankle instability may indicate the need for primary fixation. METHODS: Ten patients (5 male, 5 female; mean age, 34 years; range, 15-64 years) with bony avulsion fractures of the fibula after acute ankle sprains were included...

Synovial chondromatosis of the ankle is rare and sparsely documented. Traditional surgical intervention is open loose body excision and synovectomy. Upon literature review, only two other cases were found to be managed arthroscopically. We report a case of synovial chondromatosis in a 54-year-old man leading to pain and limited range of motion of his ankle. This unique case of extensive nodule formation was treated via a three-port arthroscopic approach. Removal of loose bodies and synovectomy were successfully performed arthroscopically...

Arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis is the treatment method of choice to achieve good clinical scores, faster time to union, fewer complications, and shorter hospital stay. However, the union rate, reoperation rate, and operative time are similar to open arthrodesis. The choice of which method to use for arthrodesis is influenced by surgeon preference and experience, clinical presentation, and equipment availability. Overall, we must choose the method of ankle arthrodesis that gives the best result with the least morbidity to the patient...

Surgical procedures for managing chronic lateral ankle instability include anatomic direct repair, anatomic reconstruction with an autograft or allograft, and arthroscopic repair. Open direct repair is commonly used for patients with sufficient ligament quality. Reconstruction incorporating either an autograft or an allograft is another promising option in the short term, although the longevity of this procedure remains unclear. Use of an allograft avoids donor site morbidity, but it comes with inherent risks...

The indications for arthroscopy have expanded over the years. Arthroscopic-assisted open reduction internal fixation in the setting of acute trauma is gaining popularity with foot and ankle surgeons. It serves to facilitate direct visualization of fracture fragments and allows for precise articular reduction with minimal soft tissue insult. Current evidence reports a high incidence of chondral injury with ankle fractures. Arthroscopy performed at the time of open reduction internal fixation allows for joint inspection and potential treatment of these posttraumatic defects...

OBJECTIVES: Osteochondral lesions of the distal tibial plafond (OLTP) are rare and far less common than osteochondral lesions of the talus. Literature data do not report clinical records with significant number of cases and follow-up. The aim of our study was to evaluate clinical and MRI outcomes following arthroscopic treatment of distal tibia osteochondral lesions and to report our results with treating these rare lesions. METHODS: Between October 2010 and November 2011, a consecutive series of 27 patients, 15 males and 12 females, were treated arthroscopically with the one-step BMDCT for OLTPs...

Anterior ankle impingement is a frequent cause of pain and disability in athletes with impingement of soft-tissue or osseous structures along the anterior margin of the tibiotalar joint during dorsiflexion. In this study, we hypothesized that arthroscopic decompression of anterior ankle impingement would result in significant, reliable, and durable improvement in pain and range of motion (ROM), and would allow National Football League (NFL) players to return to their preoperative level of play. We reviewed 29 arthroscopic ankle débridements performed by a single surgeon...

Ankle arthrodesis is still considered the gold standard in the treatment of advanced painful ankle osteoarthritis. More than 3 decades ago, it was performed under arthroscopy; thereafter, many authors have reported excellent results and a low complication rate. Despite the significant improvements in surgical techniques, nonunion remains a problematic and relatively frequent event. This is one of the reasons the research is constantly active in this field. Ten years ago, a fibular resection during ankle arthrodesis was, for the first time, described in the literature as a means to correct malalignment in varus cases...

BACKGROUND: Chronic ankle instability is defined by an instability lasting more than 6 months, in those cases where a comprehensive conservative treatment fails a surgical stabilization is required. Several surgical techniques have been proposed for the management of the chronic lateral instability of the ankle and even after 50 years, the Broström-Gould technique is still considered the gold standard for the treatment of this pathology. Recently, many authors have developed completely arthroscopic lateral ligament repair and the use of these procedures is rapidly increasing...

BACKGROUND: Techniques in foot and ankle surgery have expanded rapidly in recent years, often presented at national society meetings. It is important that research is published to guide evidence based practice. Many abstracts however do not go on to full text publication. METHODS: A database was created of all abstracts presented at BOFAS meetings from 2009 to 2013. Computerised searches were performed using PubMed and Google search engines. RESULTS: In total 341 papers were presented, with an overall publication rate of 31...

BACKGROUND: The open Broström-Gould lateral ankle stabilization procedure has been the gold standard for primary lateral ankle stabilization. A new minimally invasive all-inside arthroscopic technique has been described for the correction of lateral ankle instability. METHODS: We performed a review of patients who underwent lateral ankle stabilization by either the traditional open Broström-Gould (BG) or the All-Inside Bröstrom (AIB) technique to compare and identify any discrepancies between functional and/or patient satisfaction outcomes...

BACKGROUND: This research studied the safety and efficacy of a new portal to the spring ligament. This portal is located just plantar to the insertion of the posterior tibial tendon and above the fibrous septum between the posterior tibial and the flexor digitorum longus tendons. METHODS: Twelve fresh frozen foot and ankle specimens were used. The distance between the accessory medial portal and the medial plantar nerve was measured. The relation between the medial plantar nerve and the spring ligament was studied...

BACKGROUND: Lateral ankle ligament injury is among the most common orthopedic injuries. The objective of this study is to present the preliminary prospective results of treatment using the "Inside-Out" variant of the fully arthroscopic Broström-Gould technique. METHODS: Twenty six patients were included: 20 male and 6 female, aged 19-60 years, mean 41 years. All patients had positive "anterior drawer" and "talar tilt" tests. When necessary, cartilage injuries were treated with microfracture and arthroscopic resection for anterior impingement; three patients had hindfoot varus, on whom Dwyer osteotomy was performed; one patient had peroneal tendinopathy and was treated with tendoscopic debridement and another one had partial injury of the deltoid ligament, which was treated by direct repair...

BACKGROUND: Anatomic graft reconstruction of the anterior talo-fibular ligament is an alternative for patients who are bad candidates for standard procedures such as a Broström-Gould reconstruction (high-demand athletes, obesity, hyperlaxity or collagen disorders, capsular insufficiency or talar avulsions). The purpose of this study is to describe an all-inside arthroscopic technique for ATFL reconstruction, and the results in a series of patients with chronic ankle instability. METHODS: We reviewed patients with chronic ATFL ruptures treated with an all-inside arthroscopic allograft reconstruction of the ATFL, with a minimum 2-year follow-up...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the lateral malleolus view under ankle arthroscopy and the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) attachment site. METHODS: Seven normal ankles from Thiel-embalmed cadavers were investigated. Ankle arthroscopy was performed using a 2.7 mm-diameter, 30-degree, oblique-viewing endoscope. An antero-medial portal (AM), a medial midline portal (MML), and an antero-central portal (AC) were created in order, and the ankle arthroscope was inserted...

PURPOSE: The purpose of our study was to determine the results of arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis (AAA) and how the procedure affects adjoining joints and functional scores. METHODS: Between 1993 and 2013, 116 patients (120 ankles) underwent AAA. Nineteen ankles were lost to follow-up due to death, insufficient radiographic studies, or inability to contact, resulting in 97 patients (101 ankles). Mean age at surgery was 61.1 years (range, 35.8-79.6 years); mean follow-up was 86 months (range, 24-247 months)...
