BACKGROUND: Screw fixation is a typical technique for isolated talonavicular arthrodesis (TNA), however, no consensus has been reached on how to select most suitable inserted position and direction. The study aimed to present a new fixation technique and to evaluate the clinical outcome of individual headless compression screws (HCSs) applied with three-dimensional (3D) image processing technology to isolated TNA. METHODS: From 2007 to 2014, 69 patients underwent isolated TNA by using double Acutrak HCSs...

The optimal time to treat neuropathic (Charcot) arthropathy of the ankle and peritalar joint is controversial because of the various treatment options available and the variable results reported in published studies. We sought to determine the outcome of hind foot arthrodesis with stable internal fixation in patients with different Eichenholtz stages of arthropathy. We prospectively studied patients with substantial disabilities caused by neuropathic arthropathy in deformed, unstable ankle and peritalar joints, with or without ulcerations, who had undergone treatment from July 2007 to December 2012...

BACKGROUND: Mueller-Weiss disease is a rarely diagnosed deformity where the navicular bone undergoes spontaneous osteonecrosis in adults. Until now, there is no widely accepted operative treatment for this unusual disease. We aimed to compare clinical and radiological outcomes between the open triple fusion and talonavicular-cuneiform arthrodesis for Mueller-Weiss disease of stage 4. METHODS: During the period from February 2012 to June 2016, 10 patients (11 feet) suffering from Mueller-Weiss disease of stage 4 were treated by the same senior surgeon...

We describe a rare case of simultaneous and spontaneous osteonecrosis affecting bilateral navicular and talar bones in a young male. On both sides, there was associated symptomatic talonavicular and naviculocuneiform arthritis. The more symptomatic left foot was managed successfully by talonavicular-cuneiform (TNC) arthrodesis and core decompression of talar body. A probable cause of this rare disorder was most likely due to a developmental anomaly in the preaxial ray of the foot. As no literature is currently available for this rare condition, our case report is intended to provide a referral point for future studies in the early diagnosis and management of this condition...

Although, trauma, foot deformity (pesplanovalgus), systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus and lupus, drugs (steroids, antineoplastic) and excessive alcohol consumption have all been accused in the etiology of avascular necrosis of the tarsal bones, spontaneous avascular necrosis of the navicular bone, especially in adults, is a rare entity. In this article, we report a 50-year-old female patient with bilateral, spontaneous avascular necrosis of the navicular bone and related severe talonavicular arthrosis...

Single, double, and triple hindfoot arthrodeses are used to correct hindfoot deformities and relieve chronic pain. However, joint fusion may lead to dysfunction in adjacent articular surfaces. We compared range of motion in adjacent joints before and after arthrodesis to determine the effects of each procedure on joint motion. The theory of moment of couple, bending moment and balanced loading was applied to each of 16 fresh cadaver feet to induce dorsiflexion, plantarflexion, internal rotation, external rotation, inversion, and eversion...

For rigid pes planovalgus deformities, modified double and triple arthrodeses have had high union rates and subjective outcomes reported. Increased rates of talonavicular nonunions after modified double arthrodesis have led to concern regarding this procedure. A retrospective medical record review was performed of patients who had undergone either a modified double (n = 9) or triple (n = 7) arthrodesis for stage 3 pes planovalgus deformity. Radiographs were reviewed for hindfoot alignment, bony union, and hardware failure...

BACKGROUND: Total ankle arthroplasty is an accepted alternative to arthrodesis of the ankle. However, complication and failure rates remain high. Long-term results of the Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement (STAR) are limited, with variable complication and failure rates observed. This prospective study presents the long-term survivorship and postoperative complications of the STAR prosthesis. METHODS: Between May 1999 and June 2008, 134 primary total ankle arthroplasties were performed using the STAR prosthesis in 124 patients...

BACKGROUND: Foot and ankle movement alterations following ankle arthrodesis are still not well understood, particularly those that might contribute to the documented increase in adjacent joint arthritis. Generalized tarsal hypermobility has long been postulated, but not confirmed in gait or functional movements. The purpose of this study was to more thoroughly evaluate compensation mechanisms used by arthrodesis patients during level and uphill gait through a variety of measurement modalities and a detailed breakdown of gait phases...

Isolated talonavicular arthrodesis is a commonly performed surgical intervention. Nonunion is a dreaded complication. The aim of the present study was to analyze the clinical and radiologic outcome of talonavicular arthrodesis using a dual approach with 2-side screw fixation. From February 2012 to September 2014, isolated talonavicular arthrodesis was performed on 17 joints of 16 patients (mean age 59.12 years). All procedures were performed by a single surgeon. The incidence of union, visual analog scale scores, and complications were analyzed...

AIMS: Few reports compare the contribution of the talonavicular articulation to overall range of movement in the sagittal plane after total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) and tibiotalar arthrodesis. The purpose of this study was to assess changes in ROM and functional outcomes following tibiotalar arthrodesis and TAA. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients who underwent isolated tibiotalar arthrodesis or TAA with greater than two-year follow-up were enrolled in the study. Overall arc of movement and talonavicular movement in the sagittal plane were assessed with weight-bearing lateral maximum dorsiflexion and plantarflexion radiographs...

The single medial incision subtalar joint and talonavicular joint arthrodesis has been shown to be a useful alternative for the correction of hindfoot valgus deformity. We describe an arthroscopic method of joint preparation using this approach. The present case report included 6 consecutive patients aged 35 to 72 (mean ± standard deviation 55.8 ± 15.54) years (4 males [66.7%] and 2 females [33.3%]), who had undergone the medial approach for modified double arthrodesis of the foot. Of the 6 patients, 3 (50...

PURPOSE: Triple arthrodesis is a commonly performed salvage procedure to correct hindfoot deformity. Non-union is considered an undesirable radiographic outcome; however, the clinical ramifications of this are not as well defined. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of partial or complete radiographic non-union after triple arthrodesis in children and characterize the clinical consequences. METHODS: An IRB-approved retrospective review of triple arthrodesis surgeries in patients less than 16 years of age performed by a single surgeon (DSW) identified 159 cases meeting the inclusion criteria...

BACKGROUND: While it is thought that stresses through the subtalar and talonavicular joints will be decreased after total ankle replacement (TAR) relative to ankle fusion, progressive arthritis or deformity of these joints may require a fusion after a successful TAR. However, after ankle replacement, it is unknown how hindfoot biomechanics and blood supply may be affected. Consequently, subsequent hindfoot joint fusion may be adversely affected. METHODS: We retrospectively identified a consecutive series of 1001 primary TARs performed between January 1998 and December 2014...

Owing to the limited blood supply in the midfoot, multiple arthrodesis attempts in midfood joints may result in severe osteonecrosis, leading to a difficult scenario for bone reconstruction. This article describes the use of fibula flaps (two free and one pedicled flap) to reconstruct bone defects in three cases of persistent nonunion in midfoot joints. Before admission, all patients (aged 32-56 years old) had undergone multiple arthrodesis attempts (range 3-4) aimed at treating joint diseases associated with flatfoot or Müller-Weiss syndrome...
