Anterior ankle impingement is a common cause of chronic ankle pain in the athletic population. Its cause can be either soft tissue or osseous in nature. Arthroscopic debridement results in favorable and reproducible outcomes. However, in the population in which ankle instability or narrowing of the ankle joint occur, outcomes may be less favorable.
Osteochondral defects of the talus are a challenging subject facing foot and ankle surgeons. The available treatment options have relatively good subjective outcomes; however, they are limited by the ability to reproduce hyaline cartilage, the need for multiple surgeries, and high morbidity. We present a new technique using DeNovo NT(®) juvenile allograft(More)
Until there is a total ankle implant developed that stands the test of time, ankle arthrodesis will continue to be the gold standard in the operative treatment of the arthritic ankle joint. Ankle arthrodesis techniques include minimally invasive methods that can be performed via arthroscopy or with miniarthrotomy. Extensile techniques include(More)
Nonunion of a tarsal navicular stress fracture, although relatively uncommon, is often amenable to open reduction and internal fixation. Furthermore, avascular necrosis of the navicular whether intact or occurring after fracture is rare, secondary to the adequate blood supply it receives. However, persistent nonunion after primary surgical repair in(More)
OBJECTIVE Intradiscal biacuplasty (IDB) is a novel bipolar cooled radiofrequency system for the treatment of degenerative disk disease. We present the results of a pilot trial with 6-month follow-up. DESIGN, SETTING, PATIENTS, AND INTERVENTIONS: Fifteen patients, 22-55 years old, underwent one- or two-level IDB treatment of their painful lumbar discs. All(More)
BACKGROUND A randomized clinical has shown the effectiveness of intramuscular electrical stimulation for the treatment of poststroke shoulder pain. OBJECTIVE Identify predictors of treatment success and assess the impact of the strongest predictor on outcomes. METHOD This is a secondary analysis of a multisite randomized clinical trial of intramuscular(More)
Isolated lateral leg compartment syndrome is a relatively rare event, with potentially devastating consequences. We present a case of a 44-year-old man with isolated lateral leg compartment syndrome caused by a compression stocking used for deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis during surgery. It was found to be excessively tight around the patient's proximal(More)
The authors present a patient with a history of chronic lateral ankle instability and pain. Physical and diagnostic evaluation revealed anterior ankle instability and peroneus brevis weakness. An MRI showed an attenuated anterior-talofibular ligament and a longitudinal tear of the peroneus brevis tendon. Surgical exploration exhibited tophaceous gout within(More)
