After 3 to 6 months of conservative management for insertional calcific Achilles tendinopathy, operative intervention might be warranted. Despite a success rate of 75% to 100% with surgery, no consensus has been reached on the amount of acceptable detachment of the Achilles tendon. The present case series reports on the results of a central splitting approach with 80% to 90% detachment of the Achilles insertion repaired with a double-row bridging suture device. A total of 14 patients (16 heels) for whom nonoperative management for insertional calcific Achilles tendinopathy had previously failed were enrolled in the present study they had undergone surgical management...

BACKGROUND: Evaluation of the results of treatment for clubfoot by the Ponseti technique is based on clinical and functional parameters. There is a need to establish universally recognized quantitative measurements to compare, better understand, and more precisely evaluate therapeutic outcome. METHODS: Nine angles were measured on standard radiographs of 145 children with idiopathic clubfeet treated between 2000 and 2010 with the Ponseti method. The average follow-up was 6...

BACKGROUND: The Cotton osteotomy has been used to correct residual forefoot supination in flexible flatfoot deformity reconstruction. The purpose of this study was to delineate the radiographic effects of the Cotton osteotomy by controlling for concomitant procedures used for deformity correction. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 67 patients who underwent a Cotton osteotomy as part of a flatfoot reconstructive procedure. We evaluated 12 radiographic parameters including the articular surface angles of the foot, Meary angle, and a newly defined medial arch sag angle (MASA)...
