INTRODUCTION: Ankle fractures are among the most common type of fractures in the lower extremity. A posterior malleolar fracture is frequently part of a more complex ankle fracture and only in rare cases it occurs as isolated injury. Posterior malleolar fractures often occur with associated injuries, such as a Maisonneuve fracture or with bi- or trimalleolar ligamentous injuries. Knowledge about these associated injuries is essential to prevent missed diagnoses. The aim of this article is to describe the isolated posterior malleolar fracture, the possible associated injuries, the diagnostic work-up and therapeutic consequences...

INTRODUCTION: According to Fraser's description, ipsilateral femoral and tibial diaphyseal fractures are characterised as type I floating knee and have a better prognosis than fractures with joint involvement (type II). There are few reports of functional and muscle strength in these patients. The objective of this study was to evaluate the functional and isokinetic muscle strength of patients with type I floating knee undergoing femoral and tibial internal fixation. METHODS: Patients with type I floating knee undergoing concomitant femoral and tibial internal fixation were invited for clinical evaluation...

CONTEXT: Range of motion (ROM) is a component of a physical exam used in the diagnostic and rehabilitative process. Following ankle injury and/or during research, it is common to measure plantarflexion with a universal goniometer. The ease and availability of digital inclinometers created as applications for smartphones, has led to an increase in using this method of ROM assessment. Smartphone applications have been validated as alternatives to inclinometer measurements in the knee; however, this application has not been validated for plantarflexion in the ankle...

BACKGROUND: ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin motifs) proteins play an important pathological role in matrix degeneration. Aggrecan degradation is a significant and critical event in early-stage osteoarthritis. To determine the effect of hemoglobin (Hb) on the ability of synovial tissues to produce ADAMTS family members, we examined the influence of Hb by synovial cells in an in vitro experimental system. METHODS: Synovial tissues were obtained from five young patients with meniscal injury under arthroscopic surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Sensory feedback from the foot dorsum during walking has only been studied globally by whole nerve stimulation. Stimulating the main nerve innervating the dorsal surface produces a functional stumble corrective response that is phase-dependently modulated. We speculated that effects evoked by activation of discrete skin regions on the foot dorsum would be topographically organized, as with the foot sole. METHODS: Nonnoxious electrical stimulation was delivered to five discrete locations on the dorsal surface of the foot during treadmill walking...
