Anterior Ankle impingement

Keir A Ross, Christopher D Murawski, Niall A Smyth, Ruben Zwiers, Johannes I Wiegerinck, Christiaan J A van Bergen, Cornelis Niek van Dijk, John G Kennedy
Anterior ankle impingement is a common cause of chronic ankle pain, particularly in athletic populations. Morris and McMurray provided the earliest descriptions of anterior impingement, coining the condition as "athlete's ankle" or "footballer's ankle". The pathology has since been a topic of considerable investigation and has been re-termed "anterior ankle impingement syndrome". Treatment with open surgery has provided good results historically, but at the price of significant complications. Advancements in ankle arthroscopy have decreased the risk of complication drastically and evidence in the literature indicates that anterior arthroscopy is an effective approach to treating osseous and soft tissue impingement...

BACKGROUND: It is unclear whether simultaneous surgery for posterior ankle impingement syndrome (PAIS) and concomitant ankle disorders, such as anterior ankle impingement syndrome (AAIS), lateral ankle instability (LAI), and osteochondral lesion of the talus (OLT), allows for early return to athletic activity. METHODS: Ninety-seven patients who engaged in athletic activity (mean age 27 [range 18-43] years) and were treated by a hindfoot endoscopic approach for PAIS alone or simultaneously for PAIS and concomitant ankle disorders were included in this study...

INTRODUCTION: Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries. Despite appropriate conservative treatment, approximately 20-40% of patients continue to have chronic ankle instability and pain. In 75-80% of cases there is an isolated rupture of the anterior talofibular ligament. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A retrospective observational study was conducted on 21 patients surgically treated for chronic ankle instability by means of an arthroscopic anatomical repair, between May 2012 and January 2013...

Posterior ankle impingement syndrome (PAIS) is a common injury in athletes engaging in repetitive plantarflexion, particularly ballet dancers and soccer players. Despite the increase in popularity of the posterior two-portal hindfoot approach, concerns with the technique remain, including; the technical difficulty, relatively steep learning curve, and difficulty performing simultaneous anterior ankle arthroscopy. The purpose of the current literature review is to provide comprehensive knowledge about PAIS, and to describe a systematic four-stage approach of the posterior two-portal arthroscopy...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the tibiotalar joint capacity and the localisation, frequency and amount of extravasation in patients with extraarticular contrast material leakage into adjacent synovial compartments on ankle magnetic resonance (MR) arthrography. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sites of extravasation were determined in the ankle MR arthrograms of 69 patients. Thirty-four patients without extraarticular contrast material leakage into locations unrelated to the injection path were included as a control group...

There are a number of variations in the intra-articular anatomy of the ankle which should not be considered pathological under all circumstances. The anteromedial corner of the tibial plafond (between the anterior edge of the tibial plafond and the medial malleolus) can have a notch, void of cartilage and bone. This area can appear degenerative arthroscopically; it is actually a normal variant of the articular surface. The anterior inferior tibiofibular ligament (AITF) can possess a lower, accessory band which can impinge on the anterolateral edge of the talar dome...

BACKGROUND: Acute lateral ankle ligamentous sprains (ALALS) are common injuries. This injury does not always have a favourable long-term outcome. Studies reporting the prognosis of ALALS after functional treatment are scarce. OBJECTIVE: To determine the prognosis of functionally treated ALALS, in terms of recurrent ALALS and residual symptoms. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: Patients were recruited from 20 family practices, nine physical therapy practices, the emergency departments of a regional hospital and a university hospital...

BACKGROUND: Arthroscopic debridement has been a gold standard procedure for anterior ankle impingement, both in cases of osseous and soft tissue impingement. There is sparse literature on comparative outcome with respect to functional results between the two types of impingement post-arthroscopic debridement. METHODS: Our study included 14 patients diagnosed as cases of anterior ankle impingement on the basis of clinical and radiological examination. They were segregated into two groups (on the basis of cause of impingement (osseous versus soft tissue))...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the posterolateral minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) method for managing distal tibial or tibial shaft fractures with severe anterior and medial soft tissue injuries. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Five consecutive patients with three distal tibial and two tibial shaft fractures (three open fractures) at a level-1 trauma and tertiary referral center were retrospectively reviewed. All patients were definitively treated and followed to bone union...

BACKGROUND: Screws placed from posterior to anterior have been shown to be biomechanically and anatomically superior in the fixation of talar neck and neck-body fractures, yet most surgeons continue to place screws from an anterior start point. The safety and efficacy of percutaneously applied posterior screws has not been clinically defined, and functional outcomes after their use is lacking. METHODS: After institutional review board approval, we performed a retrospective review of 24 consecutive talar neck fractures treated by a single surgeon that utilized posterior-to-anterior screw fixation...

Ankle impingement syndromes are one of the most frequent chronic and posttraumatic pathologies of the ankle joint. Anterior and posterior impingement result from the abutting of anatomical structures leading to pain and limitation in the range of motion of the ankle joint. Ankle impingement can be classified based on the localization or the underlying cause. Besides chronic ankle pain, further symptoms are movement and load-dependent swelling of the ankle joint and limitations in dorsiflexion and plantar flexion...

BACKGROUND: Arthroscopic management of the posterior ankle impingement with the patient in supine position has the advantage of dealing with anterior ankle pathology at the same time without the need to change position of the patient. This study aims at evaluation of the safety of portal establishment and instrumentation of this technique. METHODS: Sixteen fresh-frozen cadaver specimens were used. The relationships of the posteromedial and posterolateral portals to the adjacent tendons and nerves and the relationship of the coaxial portal tract with the posterior ankle capsule and the flexor hallucis longus tendon were studied...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this case report is to describe the diagnostic value of ultrasonography (US) in a patient with injury to the lateral ligaments of the ankle with concomitant ankle joint osteoarthritis and anterior impingement. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 28-year-old male had a history of an inversion injury of the left ankle. Diagnostic US of the left ankle using an 8- to 15-MHz linear array transducer demonstrated a full thickness tear of the anterior talofibular ligament, partial thickness tearing of the calcaneofibular ligament, and laxity of the ankle with varus stress testing...

Articles from the anatomy, orthopaedic, and radiology literature since 1943 were reviewed, and possible sources of anterior ankle impingement were identified therein. There are both osseous and soft tissue causes of impingement symptoms. Anterior impingement in dancers may be induced by repetitive dorsiflexion during demi-plié, where the anterior edge of the distal tibial articular surface contacts the dorsal neck of the talus. It also can be associated with the sequelae of lateral ankle sprain, including a hypertrophic tissue response, or simply by impingement of anatomically normal ligamentous structures...

BACKGROUND: Anterior soft tissue impingement of the ankle has been described based on the etiology and location, but no classification has been reported. Arthroscopic treatment is usually considered effective, even if the behavior of the different forms of impingement is not clear. The purpose of this study was to analyze the factors affecting long-term results. METHODS: Forty-two patients with a mean age of 32.6 years were arthroscopically treated between 2004 and 2008...
