BACKGROUND: Although the peroneal muscles are known to be the major dynamic lateral stabilizers of the ankle, little information is available regarding the change in muscle strength and relation with the outcomes after lateral ligament repair surgery. The purpose of this study was to identify the effects of peroneal strength on the validated functional outcome measures after the modified Broström procedure (MBP) for chronic ankle instability. METHODS: Forty-one patients (41 ankles) who underwent MBP using suture anchors were eligible and followed up to 2 years postoperatively...

INTRODUCTION: Skeletal muscles absorb and transfer kinetic energy during landing and jumping, which are common requirements of various forms of physical activity. Chronic ankle instability (CAI) is associated with impaired neuromuscular control and dynamic stability of the lower extremity. Little is known regarding an intra-limb, lower-extremity joint coordination of kinetics during landing and jumping for CAI patients. We investigated the effect of CAI on lower-extremity joint stiffness, and kinetic and energetic patterns across the ground contact phase of landing and jumping...

BACKGROUND: To assist with visualization, orthopaedic surgeons often apply ankle distraction during arthroscopic procedures. The study aimed to investigate whether ankle distraction suppresses fibular motion in cadaveric specimens with an unstable syndesmotic injury. METHODS: Fourteen fresh-frozen above knee specimens underwent arthroscopic assessment with 1) intact ligaments, 2) after sectioning of the anterior inferior tibiofibular ligament, the interosseous ligament, and the posterior inferior tibiofibular ligament, and 3) after sectioning of the deep and superficial deltoid ligament...

It was nearly a centenary ago that severe ankle sprain was recognized as an injury of the ankle ligament(s). With the recent technological advances and tools in imaging and surgical procedures, the management of ankle sprains - including subtalar injuries - has drastically improved. The repair or reconstruction of ankle ligaments is getting more anatomical and less invasive than previously. More specifically, ligamentous reconstruction with tendon graft has been the gold standard in the management of severely damaged ligament, however, it does not reproduce the original ultrastructure of the ankle ligaments...

BACKGROUND: To develop a classification of ATFL injury based on the ultrasonography. METHODS: The ultrasound images of 560 cases that had chronic ankle instability were studied from May 2012 to May 2015. All the patients accepted ultrasonography to type the ATFL injury. RESULTS: The ATFL injuries could be divided into six subtypes based on ultrasound imaging: I: Intact ligament; II: Injury at the fibular side; III:Injury at the talar side; IV: Tear at the midsubstance; V:Ligament absorbed; VI:Combined injury...

Sloped walking is challenging for individuals with transtibial amputation (TTA) due to the functional loss of the ankle plantarflexors. Prostheses that actively generate ankle power may help to restore this lost function. The purpose of this study was to use musculoskeletal modeling and simulation to quantify the mechanical power delivered to body segments by passive and powered prostheses and the remaining muscles in the amputated and intact legs during sloped walking. We generated walking simulations from experimental kinematic and kinetic data on slopes of 0, ±3 deg and ±6 deg in eight people with a TTA using powered and passive prostheses and eight nonamputees...

Ankle injuries, including sprains, strains and other joint derangements and instability, are common, especially for athletes involved in indoor court or jumping sports. Identifying genetic loci associated with these ankle injuries could shed light on their etiologies. A genome-wide association screen was performed using publicly available data from the Research Program in Genes, Environment and Health (RPGEH) including 1,694 cases of ankle injury and 97,646 controls. An indel (chr21:47156779:D) that lies close to a collagen gene, COL18A1, showed an association with ankle injury at genome-wide significance (p = 3...

BACKGROUND: Although smoking is known to be harmful to the musculoskeletal system, no studies have investigated its effects on the outcomes of ankle ligament surgery. We determined the effects of smoking on the clinical and radiological outcomes of lateral ankle ligament reconstruction using tendon allografts according to smoking status. METHODS: From among 105 patients with chronic ankle instability who were treated with anatomical reconstruction of the anterior talofibular ligament and the calcaneofibular ligament using semitendinosus tendon allografts and bio-tenodesis screws, 70 ankles, from 23 smokers and 47 non-smokers, were analyzed...

Deficits in joint position sense (JPS) and force sense (FS) are two functional insufficiencies contributing to chronic ankle instability (CAI). To date, JPS and FS have been only investigated in the sagittal and transverse movement planes but not in the functional movement plane of the pronators and supinators defined by the axis of the subtalar joint (STJ). The purpose of this study was to investigate subtalar JPS as well as pronator and supinator FS in supinated and pronated joint angle in subjects with CAI...

BACKGROUND: The Chertsey test has been recently defined as an intraoperative test for the detection of the syndesmotic injuries by the application of intra-articular contrast. However, no study has investigated the reliability and comparative analysis of the Chertsey test. The purpose of this study was to explore the diagnostic accuracy of the Chertsey test in predicting syndesmosis instability of the injured ankle, with correlation to preoperative computed tomography (CT) findings. METHODS: A total of 39 patients who were operated on due to the unilateral ankle fracture and had no complaint on the contralateral ankle joint were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Appropriate management of ankle syndesmotic instability is needed to prevent the development of complications. Previous biomechanical studies have evaluated movement of the fibula after screw or suture button fixations with different results, most likely being caused by variations in experimental setups that did not mirror the in vivo clinical setting. This study aimed to arthroscopically compare in a cadaveric model the stability of syndesmotic fixation with either a suture button or syndesmotic screw...
