PURPOSE: The radial nerve appears to be more vulnerable to injury in the brachium than the median and ulnar nerves. The underlying mechanism for this increased vulnerability is not well explained. We hypothesize that the radial nerve has less excursion than the median and ulnar nerves because it is anatomically tethered by the lateral intermuscular septum (LIS) and that elbow positioning and LIS release will improve its excursion. METHODS: Eight paired fresh-frozen cadaveric upper extremity specimens were used...

We compared the outcomes of nonoperative and operative treatments of triplane fractures. Thirty-three patients with triplane fractures were treated conservatively (n=19) or surgically (n=14). Bone union and postoperative complications were radiographically examined. The mean American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society scores were 100 (nonoperative group) and 98.1 (operative group) (P=0.304). The modified Weber protocol scores were excellent in both groups. One patient in each group showed a leg-length discrepancy of more than 10 mm at the last follow-up...

AIMS: There has been an evolution recently in the management of unstable fractures of the ankle with a trend towards direct fixation of a posterior malleolar fragment. Within these fractures, Haraguchi type 2 fractures extend medially and often cannot be fixed using a standard posterolateral approach. Our aim was to describe the posteromedial approach to address these fractures and to assess its efficacy and safety. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a review of 15 patients with a Haraguchi type 2 posterior malleolar fracture which was fixed using a posteromedial approach...

Neuropathy is a common complication which can affect up to 90% of patients with diabetes mellitus. Asymptomatic neuropathy is a common presentation. We present a case that emphasises the importance of foot screening in people with diabetes. It also highlights that patient education is key to prevent development of foot ulceration which can lead to amputations. In addition, pharmacological therapy (as per NICE guidance) can be offered for pain relief. Patients with diabetic neuropathy are at high risk of falling and sustaining fractures...

INTRODUCTION: The management of pilon fractures remains a challenging issue. Due to the complexity of factors that influence the outcome, it has been questioned if anatomical reductions of articular fracture are relevant. The lack of a commonly accepted assessment of quality of fracture reduction compounded the uncertainty of the importance of anatomical reduction in pilon fracture. The current study aimed to define parameters that can better assess the reduction quality and to investigate the influence of reduction quality on functional outcomes...

Solitary ankle fracture or Achilles Tendon (AT) rupture might not be an uncommon injury. However, concomitant ipsilateral ankle fracture with AT rupture is rare. The present report discusses this rare combination. A 30-year-old female had fallen while rock climbing and sustained a closed fracture of the medial malleolus with an ipsilateral complete AT rupture. Most of the reported cases had similar patterns, not only in terms of history, but also in terms of a similar fracture pattern. This rare combination of orthopedic injuries tends to occur when an abrupt excessive force is applied to the forefoot, with subsequent ankle hyperextension or hindfoot inversion...

Fracture-dislocations of the talus are one of the most complex injuries involving the foot and ankle. These injuries are often accompanied by additional traumatic orthopedic injuries, avascular necrosis, and infection. When approaching limb reconstruction and salvage, the overall prognosis and functionality of the limb are key factors to consider. In the present report, we draw attention to the importance of a multidisciplinary team approach for formulating a treatment plan that incorporates the talar injury and associated injuries or pathologic features...

Intraosseous lipoma of the calcaneus is a benign lesion formed by mature adipose tissue. When the lesion is symptomatic, the most frequent presentation is localized pain and soft tissue swelling. Because these lesions can regress spontaneously, conservative treatment methods are recommended. Operative excision is mostly required for painful lesions and pathologic fractures. The data from 14 patients with calcaneal intraosseous lipoma, who had undergone surgery in our clinic, were evaluated retrospectively. Using Milgram's classification system, 9 lesions were classified as stage 1, 4 as stage 2, and 1 as stage 3...

BACKGROUND: There is no consensus on the optimal treatment or preferred method of operation for the management of acute deltoid ligament injuries during an ankle fracture fixation. This study aimed to analyze the outcomes of repairing the deltoid ligament during the fixation of an ankle fracture compared to conservative management. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 78 consecutive cases of a ruptured deltoid ligament with an associated ankle fracture between 2001 and 2016...

An isolated medial cuneiform fracture is a rarely encountered injury of the foot. We present a case of an isolated medial cuneiform fracture in a patient after sustaining a fall from a 15-foot height. Treatment consisted of primary arthrodesis of the first tarsometatarsal joint due to a high degree of comminution and intra-articular pain. When radiographs are inconclusive and the index of suspicion remains high for a lesser tarsus fracture, computed tomography is recommended. In patients with minimal displacement, conservative treatment is usually successful in achieving osseous fusion...

BACKGROUND: The distal ulna hook plate was recently introduced for the treatment of fifth metatarsal base fractures, but no special articles have reported the surgical results of the plate fixation of displaced or comminuted fifth metatarsal base fractures in zone 1, which are the most common forefoot fractures. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with Lawrence classification zone 1 fifth metatarsal base fractures with extra-articular displacement greater than 2 mm (n = 13) and intra-articular displacement fractures (n = 8) were included in the study...
