BACKGROUND: Many patient factors have been associated with higher or lower expectations of orthopaedic surgery. In foot and ankle surgery, the diverse diagnoses seen may also influence expectations. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between diagnosis and patients' preoperative expectations of elective foot and ankle surgery. METHODS: Two hundred seventy-eight patients undergoing elective foot or ankle surgery for 1 of 7 common diagnoses were enrolled in a prospective cohort study...

The fibular free flap has become the gold standard for mandibular reconstruction. Despite its vast array of benefits, this procedure has the potential for several complications. In the pediatric setting, the immature skeleton sets the stage for an increased risk of future skeletal abnormalities, both in the jaw, and in the donor site. Herein we describe the case of a toddler who underwent mandibular reconstruction using a fibula free flap and, years later, subsequently developed ankle instability as a result of residual fibula migration...

OBJECTIVES: Goal of this study was to investigate whether a gravity stress radiograph is beneficial in determining instability in Supination-External rotation (SER)-type ankle fractures without a medial fracture. METHODS: 39 Patients with a SER-type ankle fracture without a medial or posterior fracture and medial clear space (MCS) < 6 mm at regular mortise view were included. A gravity stress radiograph and Magnetic Resonance imaging (MRI)-scan were made. The MCS measurements of the regular and gravity stress radiographs were compared with the MRI findings (set as reference standard) to determine the sensitivity, specificity, and positive (PPV) and negative (NPV) predictive values as indication for a complete deltoid ligament rupture...

BACKGROUND: The Broström procedure is the most commonly used lateral ligament repair for chronic instability, but there is concern about the strength of the repair and the risk of reinjury. Currently, the InternalBraceTM ligament augmentation repair is an accepted augmentation method for management of a Broström procedure. Our hypothesis was that augmentation of the Broström repair with an InternalBraceTM would allow accelerated rehabilitation and return to activity and would aid in stability of the repair without a tendency to stretch...

Background: Primary benign and malignant tumors of the proximal fibula are not very common. Upper fibula being an expendable bone; the majority of the primary bone tumors at this site are usually treated with en bloc proximal fibulectomy. There is scarce literature on functional results, difficulties faced during dissection when to preserve or sacrifice common peroneal nerve and importance of lateral collateral ligament repair after proximal fibulectomy. The present study attempts at assessing these variables...

INTRODUCTION: Knee hyperextension is seen in 40-68% of ambulating hemiparetics. If left untreated it may lead to laxity of posterior structures of knee resulting in early degeneration of knee leading to pain, reduced independence in activities of daily living (ADL), deformities and instability. In this study we hypothesize walking with bent knee attitude (prowling) along with proprioceptive training may help to reduce knee hyperextension during the stance phase of gait cycle. OBJECTIVE: To test the efficacy of prowling along with proprioceptive training on knee hyperextension range, dorsiflexion range and spatio temporal parameters of gait using Wisconsin gait scale (WGS) as compared to routine physiotherapy...

BACKGROUND: Chronic ankle instability is defined by an instability lasting more than 6 months, in those cases where a comprehensive conservative treatment fails a surgical stabilization is required. Several surgical techniques have been proposed for the management of the chronic lateral instability of the ankle and even after 50 years, the Broström-Gould technique is still considered the gold standard for the treatment of this pathology. Recently, many authors have developed completely arthroscopic lateral ligament repair and the use of these procedures is rapidly increasing...

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: Although various minimally invasive procedures for chronic ankle instability are increasingly being used, a question regarding whether these procedures can be a viable alternative of the modified Broström procedure remains controversial. This study was conducted to compare the intermediate-term clinical outcomes between lateral ligaments augmentation using suture-tape and modified Broström repair in a selected cohort of patients. METHODS: Sixty female patients with chronic lateral ankle instability were randomly assigned and underwent surgical treatments by one surgeon...

BACKGROUND: The open Broström-Gould lateral ankle stabilization procedure has been the gold standard for primary lateral ankle stabilization. A new minimally invasive all-inside arthroscopic technique has been described for the correction of lateral ankle instability. METHODS: We performed a review of patients who underwent lateral ankle stabilization by either the traditional open Broström-Gould (BG) or the All-Inside Bröstrom (AIB) technique to compare and identify any discrepancies between functional and/or patient satisfaction outcomes...

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...

Dr Akilesh Anand Prakash
BACKGROUND: Syndesmotic injury and instability poses a diagnostic challenge with unreliable clinical tests and inconsistent radiologic measures. Thus, used widely in clinical practice, there is huge debate pertaining to the reliability and validity of the radiologic parameters used for syndesmotic instability. OBJECTIVE: Hence the purpose of the review was to explore the normal radiologic measures and morphometrics of distal tibiofibular syndesmosis and its relationships, which can aid in diagnosing syndesmotic instability...

BACKGROUND: The anterior drawer test is traditionally used to assess ankle instability, but we believe that there is room for a small but effective improvement by adding digital palpation of the talus. We aimed to determine the accuracy of anterolateral talar palpation (ATP) in the diagnosis of ankle instability by comparing it with the traditional anterior drawer test. METHODS: Fourteen symptomatic and 10 asymptomatic patients were examined for excessive mobility through comparison of both ankles by two blinded orthopedic surgeons, each one using one of the above-mentioned tests...

BACKGROUND: Pain, deformity and instability are the main reasons for fusion of the tarsal joints, a triple arthrodesis. The short and midterm results show that mobility, function and satisfaction increase postoperatively. However, osteoarthritis (OA) of the adjacent ankle joint is described as a long-term complication. Alignment of the foot could be an influencing factor. The aim of this study was to examine whether malalignment after triple arthrodesis leads to a higher grade of OA at long-term follow-up...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of malignant tumours of the distal tibia is a challenging surgical problem due to the scarce soft tissue coverage and the instability of the ankle joint that often occurs after resection. However, there is no consensus on the ideal treatment for malignant tumours of the distal tibia. METHODS: We report a new reconstruction for five patients with high-grade osteosarcoma of distal tibia, using dual ipsilateral vascularized autogenous fibular graft in a trapezoid-shaped array and external fixator, with ankle arthrodesis and preserving subtalar joints...
