BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical and radiologic outcomes of patients younger than 20 years, treated with the arthroscopic-talus autologous matrix-induced chondrogenesis (AT-AMIC) technique and autologous bone graft for osteochondral lesion of the talus (OLT). METHODS: Eleven patients under 20 years (range 13.3-20.0) underwent the AT-AMIC procedure and autologous bone graft for OLTs. Patients were evaluated preoperatively (T0) and at 6 (T1), 12 (T2), and 24 (T3) months postoperatively, using the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society Ankle and Hindfoot (AOFAS) score, the visual analog scale and the SF-12 respectively in its Mental and Physical Component Scores...

To determine whether hyaluronic acid (HA) injection into rheumatoid arthritis ankles and feet can achieve improvement in foot function and reduce synovial hyper-vascularization. Forty-four patients with RA having unilateral or bilateral painful ankle and foot involvement (N = 75) were studied. All the patients were randomized to receive HA (N = 40) or lidocaine (LI) (N = 35) injection at 2-week intervals; Clinical assessments were performed using a visual analog scale (VAS) and foot function index (FFItotal) including subscales of pain (FFIpain) before injection at baseline, 4 weeks (first evaluation) and 12 weeks (secondary evaluation)...

: Here we describe a modified open technique for the repair of a ruptured Achilles tendon using multiple looped sutures with the creation of interdigitating tendon stumps maximizing surface area for suture application as well as allowing for significant tissue overlay. This technique produces a high strength repair that is useful in cases of extensive degeneration or poor-quality tissue. Degenerative tissue may be encountered with chronic ruptures or failed nonoperative treatment, as well as those ruptures that occur at the proximal myotendinous junction...

AIMS: It is unclear how well non-invasive lower-limb vascular assessments can identify those at risk of foot complications in people with diabetes. We aimed to investigate the relationship between a history of foot complication (ulceration or amputation) and non-invasive vascular assessments in people with diabetes. METHODS: Bilateral ankle-brachial index (ABI), toe brachial index (TBI) and continuous wave Doppler (CWD) were performed in 127 adults with diabetes (97% type 2; age 66...

Prothrombin mutation was usually associated with other well-established predisposing factors for venous thrombosis such as antiphospholipid antibodies. Recently, even isolated prothrombin gene mutation G20210A has been reported to present severe or unusual vein thrombosis. Less clear is the role of prothrombin mutation in the formation of arterial thrombosis. We present a case of a 15-year-old healthy White male with acute bilateral femoral artery thrombosis. The patient presented with increasing left leg pain for about 1 week...

: Charcot fracture pattern (FP) and Charcot dislocation pattern (DP) are 2 distinct collapse patterns identified in Charcot neuroarthropathy of the foot and ankle. These patterns are believed to demonstrate relative differences in central bone mineral density (BMD), which has been theoretically extrapolated to describe local BMD. To assess variation in local bone composition of FP and DP patients, 10 patients, 5 DP and 5 FP were recruited. The patient's age, body mass index (BMI), radiographs, central BMD, local BMD, sRANKL (soluble receptor activator nuclear factor kappa-beta ligand), sRAGE (soluble receptors of advanced glycated end-products), and osteocalcin were measured to determined bone metabolic status and density...

We aimed to show that the star excursion balance test can identify instability in the ankle of patients who have had harvest of a fibular free flap. We compared the reach distance of the operated leg against that of the non-operated leg in 26 patients who had had harvest of the flap over a period of three years from August 2009 at two different centres. The goal of the test is to reach as far as possible with one leg in eight directions while balancing on the other. We also assessed the overall function of the operated leg using the Foot and Ankle Disability Index (FADI) and the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Score (AOFAS)...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, the number of total ankle arthroplasty procedures performed has increased dramatically. We sought to report the clinical results of the largest cohort of patients treated with a modern fixed-bearing total ankle arthroplasty by a single surgeon. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 78 consecutive patients (81 ankles) who underwent total ankle arthroplasty with a minimum clinical follow-up of 2 years. Sixty-three patients completed standardized questionnaires including the Foot and Ankle Disability Index (FADI), the Short Musculoskeletal Function Assessment (SMFA), the Short Form (SF)-36v2, and a visual analog scale (VAS) for pain...

Gregory A Lundeen, Linda J Dunaway
OBJECTIVE: There remains no consensus on a postoperative protocol following arthroscopic treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs) and most studies report a period of immobilization and nonweightbearing. Outcomes are believed to decrease with larger size. The purpose of our study was to evaluate patients who underwent arthroscopic treatment of large (≥150 mm(2)) OLTs with immediate unrestricted weightbearing and mobilization postoperatively. DESIGN: Patients who underwent arthroscopic bone marrow stimulation for osteochondral defects were identified...

Veena Kl Karanth, Tulasi Kota Karanth, Laxminarayan Karanth
BACKGROUND: Critical lower limb ischaemia (CLI) is a manifestation of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) that is seen in patients with typical chronic ischaemic rest pain or patients with ischaemic skin lesions - ulcers or gangrene - for longer than 2 weeks. Critical lower limb ischaemia is the most severe form of PAD, and interventions to improve arterial perfusion become necessary. Although surgical bypass has been the gold standard for revascularisation, the extent or the site of disease may be such that the artery cannot be reconstructed or bypassed...

BACKGROUND: Pedobarography offers dynamic information about the foot, but the interpretation of its large data is challenging. In a prior study it was shown that attention can be restricted to pedobarographic midfoot load data. We aim to verify this observation in ankle osteoarthritic and contralateral feet. METHODS: We assessed both feet of 120 patients with end-stage ankle osteoarthritis (OA) and 35 healthy volunteers with AOFAS-score and dynamic pedobarography in barefoot condition...

BACKGROUND: While nonunion after foot and ankle fusion surgery has been associated with poor outcomes, we are not aware of any longitudinal study on this subject. Thus, we prospectively evaluated the impact of nonunion on clinical outcomes of foot and ankle fusions and identified potential risk factors for nonunion after these procedures. METHODS: Using data from a randomized clinical trial on recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor-BB (rhPDGF-BB; Augment Bone Graft, BioMimetic Therapeutics), union was defined either by assessment of computed tomography (CT) scans at 24 weeks by a reviewer blinded to the type of treatment or by the surgeon's composite assessment of clinical and radiographic findings at 52 weeks and CT findings at 24 or 36 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) represents one of the most innovative surgical treatments of hallux valgus (HV). However, long-term outcomes still remain a matter of discussion within the orthopaedic community. The purpose of this longitudinal prospective study was to evaluate radiographic and functional outcomes in patients with mild-to-severe HV who underwent Reverdin-Isham and Akin percutaneous osteotomy, following exostosectomy and lateral release. METHODS: Eighty patients with mild-to-severe symptomatic HV were treated by MIS...

BACKGROUND: Isolated acute foot drop due to traumatic brain injury is exceedingly rare and is often misdiagnosed during initial evaluation. Here, we present the case of a patient who presented with left foot drop after falling off a bicycle. CASE DESCRIPTION: The patient is a 55-year-old male who was mountain biking when he fell, hit his head, and lost consciousness. Neurologic examination of the left leg revealed foot drop, no sensory deficits, and 3+ reflexes at the knee and ankle with clonus...

Background Articular cartilage lesions of the talus remain a challenging clinical problem because of the lack of natural regeneration and limited treatment options. Microfracture is often the first-line therapy, however lesions larger than 1.5 cm(2) have been shown to not do as well with this treatment method. Methods The objective of this retrospective study was to evaluate the outcomes of iliac crest bone marrow aspirate concentrate/collagen scaffold (ICBMA) and particulated juvenile articular cartilage (PJAC) for larger articular cartilage lesions of the talus...
