Harris S Slone, William B Ashford, John W Xerogeanes
The quadriceps tendon is an infrequently used graft option for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction despite favorable clinical results in the literature with low donor site morbidity. It is a versatile graft that can be harvested with bone or as a soft tissue graft alone. In addition, it can be used for anatomic, double-bundle, transtibial, and all-inside reconstructions. The unique characteristics of the quadriceps tendon allow for the ability to harvest a single-bundle large-diameter graft and minimize disruption of normal anatomy, which makes the quadriceps tendon an excellent choice for all-inside techniques...

BACKGROUND: Measurement of the medial clear space (MCS) is commonly used to assess deltoid ligament competency and mortise stability when managing ankle fractures. Lacking knowledge of the true anatomic width measured, previous studies have been unable to measure accuracy of measurement. The purpose of this study was to determine MCS measurement error and accuracy and any influencing factors. METHODS: Using 3 normal transtibial ankle cadaver specimens, deltoid and syndesmotic ligaments were transected and the mortise widened and affixed at a width of 6 mm (specimen 1) and 4 mm (specimen 2)...

Ava D Segal, Glenn K Klute
Thermal comfort remains a common problem for people with lower-limb amputation. Both donning a prosthesis and engaging in activity at room temperature can increase residual limb skin temperature; however, the effects of activity on skin temperature and comfort in more extreme environments remain unknown. We examined residual limb skin temperatures and perceived thermal comfort (PTC; 11-point Likert scale) of participants with unilateral transtibial amputation (n = 8) who were snowshoeing in a cold environment...

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between balance confidence and community-based physical activity. Twenty-two community-dwelling patients with right or left unilateral transtibial amputation who reported no falls in the past 6 mo completed the Activities-Specific Balance Confidence Scale (ABC) and wore a StepWatch Activity Monitor for 7 consecutive d in the community. Subjects were subsequently stratified as low ( <3,000 steps/d) or high (>/=3,000) steps/d) activity groups. Balance confidence was significantly lower among the low activity weekday group (LAG, 70...

BACKGROUND: It is unclear whether the biomechanical superiority of the inlay technique over the transtibial technique, arising from avoidance of the killer turn at the graft-tunnel margin of the proximal tibia during posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction, leads to better knee scores or greater knee stability. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: This systematic review was designed to compare Tegner and Lysholm scores, and posterior residual laxity of the knee, between single-bundle PCL reconstruction using transtibial and inlay techniques...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this manuscript is to compute skin strain data from a flexed biological limb, using portable, inexpensive, and easily-available resources. METHODS: We apply and evaluate this approach on a person with bi-lateral transtibial amputations, imaging left and right residual limbs in extended and flexed knee postures. We map 3D deformations to a flexed biological limb using freeware and a simple point-and-shoot camera. Mean principal strain, maximum shear strain, as well as lines of maximum, minimum, and non-extension are computed from 3D digital models to inform directional mappings of the strain field for an unloaded residual limb...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 683 persons engaged in military service experienced transtibial amputation (TTA) related to recent war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Military TTAs function at a level beyond basic ambulation. No empirical data demonstrate which higher functioning prosthetic feet maximize injured service personnel's ability to continue performing at a level commensurate with return to duty. This study's purpose was to determine which of three high-functioning, energy-storing prosthetic feet maximize performance and preference in a field obstacle course (OC) and to quantify physical performance differences between TTAs and high-functioning nonamputees...

Individuals with a transtibial amputation (TTA) are at increased risk for developing secondary musculoskeletal disorders as a result of multiple gait deviations. These deviations are primarily characterized using group mean comparisons, which do not establish if deviations are prevalent, of large magnitude, or both. In contrast, use of normative reference ranges and prevalence specifically identifies the percentage of individuals outside of a predefined acceptable range. The purpose of this study was to identify and characterize gait deviations in service members with unilateral TTA using group mean comparisons and normative reference ranges (able-bodied mean ± 2 SD)...

Kinematic-based algorithms for detecting gait events are efficient and useful in the absence of (reliable) kinetic data. However, the validity of these kinematic-based algorithms for self-paced treadmill walking is unknown, particularly given the influence of walking speed on such data. We quantified offsets in event detection of four foot kinematics-based algorithms (horizontal position, horizontal velocity, vertical velocity, and sagittal resultant velocity) relative to events determined by a threshold in vertical ground reaction force among seven uninjured individuals - and nine with unilateral transtibial amputation - walking on a self-paced treadmill...

Individuals with transtibial amputations have difficulties in performing march and stay in balance, directly affecting their quality of life. The use of prostheses can enable the rehabilitation of the individual, but we question how effective are for certain tasks and how they can still improve. To evaluate the prosthesis for transtibial amputation, a comparative study was conducted with two groups: Amputee and NOT Amputees. With the help of Motion Capture technology was held measuring the angles of static balance, walking speed and scores in the execution of daily activities...

: Hyperhidrosis of the residual limb is a common condition affecting patients with amputations. The iodine-starch test is used by dermatologists to identify focal areas of hyperhidrosis before treatment with botulinum toxin. Here, we describe a case of a patient with a transtibial amputation with moderate-to-severe hyperhidrosis who received intradermal botulinum toxin injections to treat residual limb hyperhidrosis, with particular emphasis given to the utility of the iodine-starch test in managing this common condition...

The menisci play an important biomechanical role in axial load distribution of the knees by means of hoop strength, which is contingent on intact circumferentially oriented collagen fibers and meniscal root attachments. Disruption of the meniscal root attachments leads to altered biomechanics, resulting in progressive cartilage loss, osteoarthritis, and subchondral edema, with the potential for development of a subchondral insufficiency fracture. Identification of meniscal root tears at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is crucial because new arthroscopic surgical techniques (transtibial pullout repair) have been developed to repair meniscal root tears and preserve the tibiofemoral cartilage of the knee...

There is preliminary evidence that phantom pain is associated with disturbed organization of the sensory cortex and that this organization can be normalized with two-point discrimination (TPD) training. In this case study, a reduction in phantom pain and painful phantom sensation during a test period of 19 days, was achieved using an automated TPD procedure. In a patient with a transtibial amputation, pain levels decreased from a mean of 2.3/10 on the visual analog scale (VAS) to 1.3/10 (VAS) and the painful phantom sensation level decreased from a mean 3...

Complete radial tears of the medial meniscus significantly decrease the meniscal tissue's ability to dissipate tibiofemoral loads and have been described as functionally similar to a total meniscectomy, predisposing patients to early osteoarthritis. At present, no consensus exists regarding the optimal surgical treatment of a radial meniscal tear. Current repair techniques have led to a reportedly high rate of incomplete healing or healing of the meniscus in a nonanatomic, gapped position, which compromises its ability to withstand hoop stresses...
