The anatomic compression arthrodesis technique with anterior plate augmentation for ankle arthrodesis.
The anatomic compression arthrodesis technique with anterior plate augmentation is an effective technique that results in a high union rate, improved functional outcome, and an acceptable complication rate. This technique can be used for both primary ankle arthrodesis and salvage cas...
The indications and use of bone morphogenetic proteins in foot, ankle, and tibia surgery.
Tissue engineering is an area of rapid growth. Tissue engineering in orthopedic surgery involves the use of growth factors, mesenchymal stem cells, and scaffolds, individually or in combination, toward the growth and restoration of various musculoskeletal tissues, such as ligaments, tendons, muscles...
Ankle Anatomy for the Arthroscopist. Part II: Role of the Ankle Ligaments in Soft Tissue Impingement
What is the Role and Limit of Calcaneal Osteotomy in the Cavovarus Foot?
Calcaneal osteotomy is a commonly used tool in cavovarus foot reconstructions. Understanding the indications and limitations of such an osteotomy is critical to success in reconstruction. We present a comprehensive review of surgical calcaneal osteotomy techniques and the currently available state o...
Is there any value to arthroscopic debridement of ankle osteoarthritis and impingement?
This article summarizes the current literature regarding the use of arthroscopy for the various types of ankle osteoarthritis with impingement symptoms. Discussion includes the role of diagnostic arthroscopy and adjunctive use of arthroscopy with other modalities. The section on the authors' preferr...
The use of allograft in joint-preserving surgery for ankle osteochondral lesions and osteoarthritis.
The surgical management of young patients with large osteochondral lesions of the talus or end-stage osteoarthritis of the ankle joint presents a challenge to the orthopedic surgeon because these are well-recognized sources of pain and dysfunction. Procedures designed to address these disorders eith...
The role of ankle arthroscopy in acute ankle injuries of the athlete.
This article discusses the role of ankle arthroscopy in the acute management of ankle trauma in athletes. The rate of intra-articular pathology associated with ankle trauma is high and arthroscopic treatment often has an important role to play. Its major role is in the assessment and treatment of jo...
Total ankle replacement using HINTEGRA, an unconstrained, three-component system: surgical technique and pitfalls.
Total ankle replacement (TAR) has become a valuable treatment option in patients with end-stage ankle osteoarthritis. One popular 3-component system, the HINTEGRA TAR, is an unconstrained system that provides inversion-eversion stability. More natural biomechanics of the replaced ankle may be expect...
Treatment of the arthritic valgus ankle.
The ankle joint is part of a biomechanical hindfoot complex. Approximately 1% of the world's adult population is affected by ankle osteoarthritis (AO). Trauma is the primary cause of ankle OA, often resulting in varus or valgus deformities. Only 50% of patients with end-stage ankle OA have a normal...
Surgical treatment of the arthritic varus ankle.
Within the past several years, the arthritic varus ankle has been addressed extensively in Foot and Ankle Clinics, with numerous excellent reviews by particularly knowledgeable authors. To support these outstanding contributions, this article provides a practical approach to this challenging constel...
