Sonography is conventionally used to diagnose fractures by identifying cortical discontinuity of the bone. In this study, fracture sonography in addition to color Doppler and dynamic scanning was performed in settings with limited or no access to radiography. We describe 5 cases of ankle and foot fractures with the use of sonography to identify changes in the fractured site. The width of the fracture space increased on dynamic scanning, and the Doppler signals were generated inside the fracture space on dynamic scanning...

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...

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...

Calcaneal fractures, often caused by a fall from a height, are the most common injuries encountered by orthopedic surgeons. Currently, open anatomic reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) is considered a valuable treatment of displaced intraarticular fractures of the calcaneus; however, the need for bone grafting in the treatment is still controversial. Therefore, in the present study, we investigated the outcomes of 2 methods (with and without bone grafting) used for the surgical treatment of Sanders type III calcaneal fractures...

We investigated all-inside ankle arthroscopy for Tillaux-Chaput fractures. We retrospectively evaluated 19 patients (12 males [63.2%] and 7 [36.8%] females; 11 right [57.9%] and 8 left [42.1%] ankles) treated from May 2013 to January 2016. Their mean age was 28.1 (range 10 to 55) years. Sixteen (84.2%) had single Tillaux-Chaput fractures and 3 (15.8%) had combined proximal fibular fractures; 17 (89.5%) were diagnosed radiographically and 2 (10.5%) by computed tomography. Anterolateral and anteromedial ankle arthroscopy was used for closed reduction and internal fixation with 1 or 2 Herbert screws...

BACKGROUND: Open reduction and internal fixation is the standard treatment for displaced ankle fractures. However, the presence of comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus and body mass index (BMI) are associated with poor bone quality, and these factors may predict the development of postoperative complications. The study aim was to assess the role of diabetes mellitus and BMI in wound healing in patients younger than 65 years who were surgically treated for malleoli fractures. METHODS: Ninety patients, aged from 18 to 65 years old, with surgically treated ankle fracture, were retrospectively enrolled...

Calcaneal fractures are amongst the most complex injuries known to man. Their intricate anatomy and extensive damage after trauma make them difficult to understand and treat. Most surgeons specialized in foot and ankle trauma agree that in most patients surgical managements yields the best result. Functional outcome is largely dependent on preventing complications and restoring anatomy. Reconstruction of height and suntalar joint congruency for example are both associated with improved outcome. Over the years insight in the complex (patho-)anatomy has increased...

Hallux abductovalgus is one of the most common deformities addressed by foot and ankle surgeons. Surgically, it can be approached using a wide variety of procedures. After performing the first metatarsal osteotomy, the final step is often to realign the great toe in a rectus position. This is performed with an osteotomy of the proximal phalanx. The Akin osteotomy is a medially based closing wedge osteotomy of the proximal phalanx. When executing the osteotomy, the goal is not only to correct abduction, but also to keep the lateral cortex intact, which allows it to act as an additional point of fixation...
