BACKGROUND Posterior malleolus fractures occur in 7% to 44% of ankle fractures and are associated with worse clinical outcomes. Fractures that involve the posteromedial plafond extending to the medial malleolus have been described previously in small case series. Failure to identify this fracture pattern has led to poor clinical outcomes and persistent(More)
BACKGROUND The goal of the study was to evaluate the short-term radiographic results and complications of a percutaneous distal metatarsal osteotomy for hallux valgus. METHODS From June, 2005, until October, 2005, a percutaneous distal first metatarsal osteotomy was performed in 13 consecutive patients. All patients had mild to moderate hallux valgus(More)
Posterior malleolus fractures are a common component of ankle fractures. The morphology is variable; these fractures range from small posterolateral avulsion injuries to large displaced fracture fragments. The integrity of the posterior malleolus and its ligamentous attachment is important for tibiotalar load transfer, posterior talar stability, and(More)
Chronic ankle instability affects a large number of young patients. A thorough history and clinical examination are key to proper patient selection. Once the patient decides to undergo operative intervention, the appropriate procedure should be selected according to their physical and lifestyle demands. The surgeon should gain familiarity with the full(More)
BACKGROUND Substantial attention has recently been placed on fractures of the posterior malleolus. Fracture extension to the posteromedial rim ("posterior pilon variant") may result in articular incongruity and talar subluxation. Current classification systems fail to account for these fractures. The relative frequency of this fracture, its associated(More)
Syndesmotic injuries may occur as an isolated ligamentous disruption or with associated malleolar fractures. It is imperative these injuries be identified and managed properly to prevent any long-term dysfunction and morbidity. There are multiple surgical interventions that can be used for the treatment of acute and chronic syndesmotic injuries. Obtaining(More)
BACKGROUND Diagnosis of syndesmotic injuries is primarily based upon the assessment of ankle radiographs. The purpose of our study was to redefine the radiographic relationships of the ankle syndesmosis based on a large series of normal ankle radiographs in living subjects. METHODS The study involved 392 patients (218 females, 174 males) with ankle(More)
BACKGROUND Percutaneous screw configuration has been used clinically to reduce the high rate of wound complications associated with the extensile approach of standard open reduction and internal plate fixation. The aim of this cadaveric biomechanical study was to compare the strength of the standard perimeter plating with that of the percutaneous screw(More)
BACKGROUND Fresh osteochondral total ankle allograft transplantation has been reported in the literature with survival rates between 50% and 92% at 1- to 12-years followup. The goal of this study was to present the results of total ankle allografts from another institution. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-nine patients underwent osteochondral total ankle(More)
This article reviews hindfoot arthrodesis for the adult acquired flat foot. Discussion of triple arthrodesis, triple arthrodesis with the addition of a lateral column lengthening procedure, triple arthrodesis with the addition of a plantar flexion first metatarsoncuneiform arthrodesis, and an isolated subtalar arthrodesis are discussed. The indications,(More)
