INTRODUCTION Insertional Achilles tendinopathy is a problem frequently encountered by the foot and ankle surgeon. Conservative care yields mixed results, and this condition is often treated surgically. Our hypothesis is that the suture bridge technique through a central posterior incision allows adequate visualization for thorough debridement and(More)
Correction of a bunion deformity with the use of proximal first ray procedures has historically included additional distal soft tissue and bone work about the first metatarsophalangeal joint. We report the case of a young adult female who underwent isolated first tarsometatarsal fusion for correction of a bunion deformity. Moreover, we describe the(More)
Diabetes is the leading cause of nontraumatic amputations. Although laboratory assessment may not alone determine the optimal level of amputation thorough assessment of a variety of laboratory values is critical to overall care of the patient and may place the patient into risk category. This systematic review analyzes publications related to diabetic lower(More)
INTRODUCTION Atraumatic avascular necrosis (AVN) is an unusual pathology to the foot. Risk factors include the use of corticosteroids, smoking, alcohol, rheumatologic disorders, hematologic disorders, and metabolic disorders. To the authors' knowledge, this study presents the first case of bilateral atraumatic AVN to the navicular and medial cuneiform in a(More)
Injuries to the foot and ankle are often missed or underestimated in patients with polytrauma and are a source of long-term limitations. Injures below the knee are among the highest causes for unemployment, longer sick leave, more pain, more follow-up appointments, and decreased overall outcome. As mortalities decrease for patients with polytrauma a greater(More)
Tendon transfers are commonly performed procedures in the foot and ankle. They have been described for multiple tendons and a myriad of pathologies. One issue with these procedures has always been inadequate fixation with several methods available to the surgeon. In this report, we describe a novel technique in foot and ankle surgery using a cortical button(More)
Tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis using intramedullary nail fixation is a technically demanding procedure. Periprosthetic fracture in association with tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis is a rare occurrence, with relatively few instances reported. The present report describes 2 such instances that occurred after tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis using retrograde(More)
