#1
Tun Hing Lui
A too-long anterior process (TLAP) of the calcaneus is an elongated anteromedial process of the calcaneus impinging the navicular or the talar head. TLAP can cause recurrent ankle sprain, peroneal muscle spasm, or persistent tarsal pain in adolescents. Arthroscopic resection is indicated if the symptoms do not respond to conservative treatment. It has the advantage of assessment of completeness of bone resection and treatment of associated lesions of the adjacent joints. The purpose of this technical note is to report an arthroscopic approach of the resection of the TLAP with the lateral midtarsal portal as the viewing portal...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study is to research the type of lesions to the hand and fingers in the sport of surfing. METHODS: All surfing related hand injuries reported to our hospital between January 2008 and September 2015 were analyzed. RESULTS: Thirty-seven patient files held a clear description of a trauma related to the surf sport. We found three finger sprains, five wounds needing suture, including one digital nerve lesion and one ring finger with flexor tendon injury, three fingertip amputations and twenty-six digital fractures...

BACKGROUND: Ankle sprain is the most common sports-related injury, and approximately 80% of patients studied suffered recurrent sprains. These repeated ankle injuries could cause chronic ankle instability, a decrease in sports performance, and a decrease in postural control ability. At the present time, smartphones have become very popular and powerful devices, and smartphone applications (apps) that have been shown to have good validity have been designed to measure human body motion...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to describe the frequency, pattern, and mechanism of paddle-boarding injuries. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Descriptive data of paddle-boarding injuries were collected using an interactive website-based, multiple-choice survey. Data were collected from May 2012 over a 6-month period...

There are numerous sesamoids and accessory ossicles around the foot which can easily be misdiagnosed as fractures. Os subtibiale is a very rare normal variant of the medial malleolus which is usually diagnosed incidentally in routine ankle radiographs. In this report, we present a case series of 3 patients with os subtibiale who were admitted to the emergency department with ankle sprains and misdiagnosed as medial malleolar fractures. We would like to raise awareness to the very rare and usually asymptomatic os subtibiale as a diagnostic pitfall...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Dislocations, sprains and strains are common childhood musculoskeletal injuries, requiring medical attention. We investigated the characteristics associated with using traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for children suffering from these injuries. METHODS: From a nationwide representative insurance database of Taiwan, this cross-sectional study identified 50,769 children with dislocations, sprains and strains under 18 years of age, newly diagnosed between 1999 and 2009, without previous TCM experience...

REVIEW

Due to the unpredictable, varied and often physical nature of law enforcement duties, police officers are at a high risk of work-related physical injury. The aim of this critical narrative review was to identify and synthesize key findings of studies that have investigated musculoskeletal injuries sustained by law enforcement officers during occupational tasks. A systematic search of four databases using key search terms was conducted to identify potentially relevant studies, which were assessed against key inclusion and exclusion criteria to determine studies to be included in the review...

BACKGROUND: Variations in ankle injury rates and distributions among competition levels are unclear, but such data may help inform strategies to prevent ankle sprains during American football. PURPOSE: To describe the epidemiological patterns of ankle sprains in youth, high school (HS), and collegiate American football. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive epidemiological study. METHODS: Data regarding youth, HS, and college football athletes were collected from 3 injury surveillance programs: (1) the Youth Football Safety Study (YFSS), (2) the National Athletic Treatment, Injury and Outcomes Network (NATION), and (3) the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Injury Surveillance Program (ISP)...

BACKGROUND: Underreporting in the nation's primary source of non-fatal occupational injury and illness data are well documented, but worker-level characteristics of unreported cases have not been fully explored. METHODS: Bureau of Labor Statistics' Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) data were linked to Washington workers' compensation claims to identify injury and claim characteristics associated with unreported cases. Workers' compensation administrative date data were used to characterize timing of disability and SOII case eligibility...

Osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLT) occur in up to 70% of acute ankle sprains and fractures. OLT have become increasingly recognized with the advancements in cartilage-sensitive diagnostic imaging modalities. Although OLT may be treated nonoperatively, a number of surgical techniques have been described for patients whom surgery is indicated. Traditionally, treatment of symptomatic OLT have included either reparative procedures, such as bone marrow stimulation (BMS), or replacement procedures, such as autologous osteochondral transplantation (AOT)...

The prognosis of isolated volar plate sprains of the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint is related to the extension deficit. Some consider an associated avulsion fracture as a sign of severity. The goal of this study was to find out whether the outcomes of conservative treatment in PIP volar plate injury was impacted by the presence of an avulsion fracture. Our series included 75 patients, 27 years old on average, of which 58 were men. All sprains were stable. The X-rays were normal in 52 cases (group 1); an avulsion fracture was found in 23 cases (group 2)...

The aim of this study was to assess the long-term efficacy and safety of i.v. neridronate in the treatment of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). One hundred and fourteen patients affected by OI were included in the study. Neridronate was administered by i.v. infusion at the dosage of 2 mg/kg, up to a maximum of 100 mg at three-month intervals for 3 years. Dual X-ray absorptiometry of the lumbar spine, hip, and ultradistal and proximal radius were evaluated every 6 months. Blood calcium, phosphate, albumin, fasting urinary calcium/creatinine ratio, total serum alkaline phosphatase, and bone alkaline phosphatase were obtained at baseline and every 3 months...

Julia Coyle, Stephen D Gill
Primary contact practitioner physiotherapists (PPs) are increasingly common in emergency departments (EDs) and provide targeted care to people with uncomplicated musculoskeletal conditions such as sprains, strains, and simple fractures. Workforce redesign can be challenging and success is influenced by staff attitude and opinion. The current study aimed to explore the experiences and perceptions of ED team members about a recently introduced PP service on existing staff and services in a large regional ED. Forty-two staff from eight professional groups participated in semi-structured interviews or focus groups which were audio recorded and field notes were taken...

CONTEXT:  Proprioceptive training on compliant surfaces is used to rehabilitate and prevent ankle sprains. The ability to improve proprioceptive function via such training has been questioned. Achilles tendon vibration is used in motor-control research as a form of proprioceptive stimulus. Using measures of postural steadiness with nonlinear measures to elucidate control mechanisms, tendon vibration can be applied to investigate the underlying rationale of proprioceptive training. OBJECTIVE:  To test whether the effect of vibration on young adults' postural control depended on the support surface...

OBJECTIVE: Emergency medical services (EMS) workers incur occupational injuries at a higher rate than the general worker population. This study describes the circumstances of occupational injuries and exposures among EMS workers to guide injury prevention efforts.

BACKGROUND: Osteoid osteoma (OO) is a common benign bone tumour that is rarely found in the talus. Its nidus is difficult to detect on early imaging. The atypical symptoms of OO and the presence of concurrent trauma or sports injuries may lead to misdiagnosis and delayed treatment. We herein analyse a case of misdiagnosis of OO of the talus and discuss how to improve the early diagnosis of this rare lesion, thereby permitting rapid treatment. CASE PRESENTATION: A 23-year-old man with a history of left ankle sprains and chronic pain was diagnosed with another ankle sprain and managed conservatively based on normal X-ray findings...
