BACKGROUND: Achilles tendon insertional sleeve avulsions occur when the Achilles distal tendon sleeve ruptures off of its insertion into the calcaneal tuberosity, sometimes with a small bony fragment from calcific tendinosis. Little evidence exists describing the outcomes and rerupture rate after operative management of Achilles tendon sleeve avulsions. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed to identify patients who sustained an Achilles sleeve avulsion injury treated with operative repair between October 2005 and July 2014...

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...

Adult acquired flatfoot deformity (AAFD), formerly known as posterior tibial tendon (PTT) dysfunction, is one of the most common problems of the foot and ankle. It was first described as tendon failure but has since been revealed as ligamentous failure in addition. AAFD is a spectrum of deformities that ranges from tenosynovitis (stage I) to AAFD (stages II-IV). Regarding mild stage I and stage II disease, it was once standard to perform an open synovectomy completely removing the inflamed synovium; this procedure required a large 6-cm medial ankle incision...

CONTEXT:   Ankle sprains are the most common orthopaedic injury that occurs during sport and physical activity. Many individuals who sprain their ankles develop chronic ankle instability (CAI), a condition characterized by recurrent injury, decreased physical activity, and decreased quality of life. These residual impairments are believed to persist for the remainder of the patient's life, in part due to the link between CAI and posttraumatic ankle osteoarthritis. However, this belief remains speculative due to the lack of long-term prospective investigations...

BACKGROUND: A recent case series suggested that surgery with wide-awake local anesthesia is tolerated well by most foot and ankle patients. However, patients were assessed retrospectively and there was no comparison group to show the relative efficacy of this approach. The present study was conducted to address these concerns. METHODS: Perioperative pain and anxiety were assessed in 40 patients receiving forefoot surgery using either wide-awake local anesthesia or general anesthesia...

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: Current literature on carbon fiber implant use in foot and ankle surgery is scant. The purpose of this paper is to report medium-term outcomes of hindfoot fusion using a carbon fiber intramedullary nail. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 30 cases of hindfoot fusion using carbon fiber intramedullary nail fixation between 2014 and 2017. We excluded revisions and cases with bulk allograft or ankle infection prior to surgery. We reviewed charts for length of followup, radiographic union, and complications...

BACKGROUND: Hallux valgus is a common condition with in excess of 120 procedures described in the literature for its correction. Traditionally, distal metatarsal osteotomies have been employed in the treatment of mild deformities, with proximal osteotomies being reserved for more severe presentations. The Scarf osteotomy without internal fixation allows large translations which can successfully correct severe hallux valgus deformities, without limitations related to screw placement. METHODS: This is a retrospective single surgeon case series performed over a three year period...

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: There is no universal approach to surgery aftercare among foot and ankle surgeons. Although infections following foot and ankle surgery are rare, soft tissue healing can be jeopardized after extensive and multiple approaches. METHODS: We defined a precise fixation technique of the foot and ankle in the immediate post-operative phase using what we call "the Jones dressing cast". This technique is a modification of the Jones dressing bandage...

BACKGROUND: Open Achilles tendon repairs (OATR) are associated with high complication rates. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) techniques like the Achillon Achilles tendon repair (AATR) were developed to reduce this. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare OATR with AATR. METHODS: We performed an extensive literature search including all studies that compared the two techniques. Outcomes assessed included overall complication rate, re-rupture rate, sural nerve injury, wound length, The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Scores (AOFAS) scores and return to sports...
