BACKGROUND: Suboptimal tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis (TTCA) fusion rates may result from inadequate compression that increases motion and interferes with bony bridging. The aim of this study was to evaluate compressive forces at the ankle and subtalar joints with 3 contemporary TTCA constructs. METHODS: Thirty fresh-frozen cadaveric lower extremity specimens were divided into 3 groups of 10 each: 3 partially threaded cannulated screws, hindfoot nail, and lateral plate...

Acute native joint septic arthritis is generally considered a surgical emergency, requiring drainage within hours, including during night, weekend or holiday shifts. However, there are few data supporting the need for the disruption caused by this degree of urgency. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of all adult patients seen in our medical center from 1997-2015 with culture-proven septic arthritis and noted the epidemiology of sequelae, and their possible association with a delay in surgical drainage...

The goal of the present study was to analyze a modified American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) ankle-hindfoot scale score, time to union, and the incidence of fusion after isolated arthroscopic posterior subtalar arthrodesis using either 1 or 2 screws of different diameters. We reviewed a consecutive series of 65 patients, mean age 50.0 ± 15.6 years, including 38 males (58.5%) and 27 females (41.5%), who had undergone arthrodesis from May 2004 to February 2011. The mean follow-up duration was 57...

Bone grafting is a common procedure in foot and ankle surgery. Because autogenous graft use results in comorbidity to the patient, the search has been ongoing for the ideal substitute. A novel processing technique for allograft using bone marrow, which retains many of the growth factors, has shown promise in the spinal data and early reports of foot and ankle surgery. We performed a retrospective, comparative study of patients undergoing hindfoot and ankle arthrodesis, with a total of 68 patients included. Of the 68 patients, 29 (42...

The purpose of the present study was to determine whether certain foot/ankle surgeries would benefit from the routine use of low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) as postoperative deep venous thrombosis prophylaxis. We conducted a formal cost-effectiveness analysis using a decision analytic tree to explore the healthcare costs and health outcomes associated with a scenario of no prophylaxis and a scenario of routine LMWH prophylaxis for 4 weeks. The 2 scenarios were compared for 5 procedures: (1) Achilles tendon repair (ATR), (2) total ankle arthroplasty (TAA), (3) hallux valgus surgery (HVS), (4) hindfoot arthrodesis (HA), and (5) ankle fracture surgery (AFS)...

The anterior approach to the ankle for surgery can result in injury to the superficial peroneal nerve, resulting in a painful neuroma and significant patient morbidity. A paucity of data is available evaluating the role of the superficial peroneal nerve to deep peroneal nerve transfer as a method of treatment of neuromas in continuity after ankle arthrodesis. We describe 11 patients who underwent nerve transfer with nerve allograft and conduit repair to treat recalcitrant painful neuromas after ankle arthrodesis...

Background: Total ankle arthroplasty is gaining popularity as an alternation to ankle arthrodesis for end-stage ankle arthritis. Owing to the complex anatomical characteristics of the ankle joint, total ankle arthroplasty has higher failure rates. Biomechanical exploration of the effects of total ankle arthroplasty on the foot and ankle is imperative for the precaution of postoperative complications. The objectives of this study are (1) to investigate the biomechanical differences of the foot and ankle between the foot with total ankle arthroplasty and the intact foot and (2) to investigate the performance of the three-component ankle prosthesis...

Reliable evaluation of osseous consolidation after pedal arthrodesis can be difficult, and the presence or absence of radiographic healing often dictates care. Plain radiographs remain the mainstay imaging tool owing to their cost, efficiency, and low radiation exposure. Applying radiographic parameters that can reliably determine osseous healing is essential. However, currently, no reliable or validated measures are available to determine osseous union of any joint in the foot or ankle. The purpose of the present study was to develop a radiographic healing scoring system that would enhance the diagnostic healing assessment after joint arthrodesis of the foot or ankle...

BACKGROUND: Vancomycin is frequently applied locally to the operative site during foot and ankle procedures to help prevent infection. Although the efficacy of locally applied vancomycin has been demonstrated in spine surgery, there is no consensus on dosing and indication within foot and ankle surgery. Osteogenic differentiation of human mesenchymal stromal cells (hMSCs) is key to healing of both fractures and arthrodesis. The purpose of this research was to determine the impact of vancomycin on human hMSCs during the process of osteogenic differentiation...

BACKGROUND: We performed a prospective comparison of screws versus plate-and-screws for midfoot arthrodesis. MATERIALS: Between 2010 and 2015, a total of 50 patients with midfoot arthritis received screws or plate-and-screws for their midfoot arthrodesis. Function and pain were graded with the Foot and Ankle Ability Measures (FAAM) and visual analog scale (VAS), respectively. Data regarding arthrodesis healing and complications were recorded. RESULTS: Twenty-five patients received screws for fusion, where 21 achieved full arthrodesis healing by 6 months from surgery...

Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) is a common pathology of the foot and ankle. Numerous techniques are available to reconstruct the flatfoot. Fusions and tendon transfers are popular methods; however, a wide range of complications have been associated with these procedures. The objective of the present study was to demonstrate the outcomes of reconstructive surgery for flatfoot correction without tendon transfer or arthrodesis. We performed a retrospective study of 43 patients and 56 feet who had undergone flatfoot reconstructive surgery from November 2011 to June 2016, with a mean follow-up period of 60 weeks (range 12 to 60 months)...

Syndesmotic injuries associated with ankle fractures are commonly treated with reduction and fixation using a transfixing screw. On rare occasions, however, progression to chronic instability of the syndesmosis is observed. Several surgical techniques have been applied in such cases but usually without a report on the results. We report a case of chronic syndesmotic instability and ankle joint osteoarthritis after ankle fracture-dislocation in a 21-year-old male patient who underwent distal tibiofibular arthrodesis...

INTRODUCTION: Extremely heterogeneous revision rates in total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) of the upper ankle joint are reported and result to heterogeneous collectives and to short follow-up times. The aim is to investigate revision rates and the underlying reasons, as well as treatment outcome and quality of life after TAA in post-traumatic cases with sufficient follow-up. METHODS: In 2008-2013, 74 patients with post-traumatic arthrosis were treated using TAA with a Tornier Salto prosthesis, and 60 (35 males and 25 females; mean age 56) were followed-up (mean: 59 months; range 24-91 months)...

BACKGROUND: Supramalleolar deformities require surgical correction to avoid posttraumatic osteoarthrosis of the knee or ankle joint and to prevent definitive treatment options, such as total ankle arthroplasty or arthrodesis of the ankle joint. Various methods for the operative correction of supramalleolar deformities have been described in the literature. OBJECTIVE: What results can be achieved with focal dome osteotomy to correct posttraumatic supramalleolar deformities? MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 10 patients (mean age 37 years) with a supramalleolar posttraumatic deformity were treated by focal dome osteotomy...

Injuries of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis are commonly overlooked or mismanaged, and chronic instability is a debilitating condition leading to premature joint degeneration. Several methods of treatment have been described, mainly screw fixation, arthrodesis, or ligament reconstruction. Most clinical evidence is limited to case series, mainly screw fixation, and there is a general paucity of evidence regarding ligament reconstruction, which is considered to be more anatomic and to restore joint biomechanics...
