BACKGROUND: In patients with painful ankle arthrodesis, the surgical treatment is challenging, and may include takedown of ankle arthrodesis and conversion to a total ankle replacement (TAR). This procedure is technically demanding given the altered anatomy after arthrodesis. Few studies have evaluated TAR in the setting of prior arthrodesis. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What intraoperative and perioperative complications were observed in patients who underwent conversion of an ankle arthrodesis to a TAR? (2) Was durable fixation achieved at short term, and what was the alignment of the components? (3) What subsequent surgical procedures were performed, including revisions? (4) What improvements were observed in pain, tibiotalar range of motion (ROM), and quality of life? METHODS: Between January 2007 and December 2014, 18 patients with a painful ankle arthrodesis underwent conversion to TAR at our tertiary referral center...

INTRODUCTION: Ankle arthrodesis in patients with haemophilia is a joint-non-preserving treatment option often resulting in substantial pain relief and termination of haemarthrosis by osseous consolidating of the joint. However, limited data are available regarding ankle arthrodesis in young patients. AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term clinical and radiographic results with a minimum follow-up of ten years in children with haemophilia who underwent ankle arthrodesis...

INTRODUCTION: A functional assessment of 38 patients after ankle arthrodesis for the evaluation of the necessity of surgeons-specialisation was carried out by means of clinical evaluation and gait analysis after an average follow up of 30 months. METHODS: Scores were used to grade ankle function. Gate analysis was examined to determine the effect of arthrodesis on the ankle in relation to the surgeons' experience. Under conditions of normal daily living, we found significant differences in life quality between patients operated upon by experts in orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery (group A) and patients operated by general orthopaedic surgeons (group B)...

INTRODUCTION: Nonunion is a common complication (15%) of hindfoot and ankle arthrodesis. Autograft can improve the fusion rate because of its osteoconductive, osteoinductive and osteogenic properties. However, autograft harvesting is a source of morbidity. One alternative is to combine allograft with demineralized bone matrix (DBM) and iliac bone marrow aspirate (BMA). This combination graft has similar biological properties to healthy bone. When used alone, allograft has osteoconductive and sometimes structural properties...

OBJECTIVE: Lisfranc joint injury is a rare injury and can be easily missed at the initial treatment. Once ignored, late reduction is very difficult and requires extensive dissection. Surgical outcome is not as good as in the case of an early reduction. The aim of this cohort study was to analyze the midterm clinical and radiographic outcomes of staged reduction and fixation in a consecutive series of patients with old Lisfranc injuries. METHODS: Fifteen patients (16 feet) with missed Lisfranc injuries were treated with staged reduction...

BACKGROUND: The optimal operative management of hallux rigidus is still a matter for debate among surgeons. Despite arthrodesis widely considered to be the gold standard treatment, many surgeons advocate arthroplasty as a suitable alternative. There are, however, few long-term or high-quality studies evaluating these modalities. We present the 15-year follow-up of a randomized controlled trial. METHODS: This data is the follow-up to the original study published in 2005...

PURPOSE: The arthroscopic assisted ankle arthrodesis (AAAA) is a minimally invasive procedure for end-stage ankle arthritis with numerous benefits like faster time of union, insignificant blood loss, less morbidity, less infection rate, and less soft tissue complications. A shorter hospital stay decreases the cost and results in early mobilization compared to open methods. We present a retrospective series of 32 patients, who underwent AAAA during a period of 8 years. METHODS: Thirty-two patients were reviewed retrospectively from 2008 to 2015...

OBJECTIVE: "Lisfranc joint injury" is comprised of a tarsometatarsal joint-complex injury. The Lisfranc complex injury is always a challenge for orthopedists, and the optimum treatment is still up for debate. Anatomic reduction and stable internal fixation prove to have no satisfactory outcomes. This research aims to compare the clinical curative effects, complications and radiographic features of arthrodesis and non-fusion of the Lisfranc joint in the follow-up of the patients who suffered Lisfranc injuries...

About 90 % of all cases of painful posttraumatic ankle arthritis can be very successfully treated with a minor invasive ankle arthrodesis technique by using a small anterior approach and a fixation with four 6. 5 mm screws of which the posteromedial and transfibular one are inserted percutaneously. The results with this standardized procedure have been reported previously as excellent and good in a mid-term run of 6 years (34). This technique leads to a high union rate of 99% (92 of 93) with rapid bone healing within 8 ± 2 weeks, it causes a low minor complication rate of 8 % and enables a significant increase of the AOFAS ankle/hindfoot score (17) from 36 preoperatively to 85 postoperatively as well as a midtarsal movement of 24° ± 16°...

First metatarsocuneiform joint arthrodesis has been used in foot and ankle surgery for the treatment of hallux abductovalgus deformity, among other pedal pathologic entities. The goal of the present retrospective study was to compare the fusion rates and complications of an intraplate compression screw fixation, crossing solid core screw fixation, and a single interfragmentary screw with a simple locking plate. All procedures were performed by a single surgeon, and all patients received an identical postoperative protocol...

BACKGROUND: Ankle distraction arthroplasty is one option for the treatment of severe ankle arthritis in young patients. The outcomes and factors predicting success in distraction arthroplasty are poorly understood. METHODS: From January 2011 to May 2015, 16 patients who had undergone ankle distraction arthroplasty for ankle arthritis were operated, including six males and ten females. All patients were available for analysis. The main outcome measurements included joint space on weight bearing radiographs, AOFAS-AH scores (American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society ankle-hindfoot score), VAS scores and SF-36 scores...

Intra-articular bullet wounds have been found to cause both local and systemic consequences, in particular, when retained over many years. Only a few such cases have been described in published reports, each with different implications, depending on the joint involved and whether the patient experienced lead toxicity. We report the rare case of a 63-year-old male with lead arthropathy of the ankle secondary to a gunshot wound 49 years earlier. In addition to his severe tibiotalar arthritis, he presented with significantly elevated blood lead levels...

Surgical excision is the traditional treatment for osteoid osteoma. However, the complexity of the foot anatomy makes a satisfactory outcome challenging. Difficulty in localizing the lesion intraoperatively may result in either incomplete tumor resection or excessive bone loss. To date, no published report has described the use of three-dimensional printing in the surgical treatment of osteoid osteoma of the calcaneus. In this case, we printed a three-dimensional model of the calcaneus of a 17-year-old female patient with a 2-year history of night pain in the lateral aspect of the hindfoot and ankle, evaluated the lesion as an osteoid osteoma, and designed a surgical guiding plate...
