Distal tibial and fibular fractures, particularly in patients with comorbidities, heal slowly and have a high incidence of postoperative nonunion and infection. Autologous concentrated bone marrow aspirate (cBMA) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) increase osteogenic potential of demineralized bone matrix (DBM). The purpose of this case series was to evaluate(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to report on the rehabilitative outcomes associated with common peroneal nerve (CPN) decompression and neurolysis revision when performed with open surgical implantation of a viable cryopreserved placental membrane (vCPM). METHODS Seven patients who underwent secondary CPN decompression and neurolysis with open(More)
Post traumatic fractures involving the lower extremity are often difficult to manage because of the limited options for soft tissue coverage and the increased susceptibility for infection to ensue. One particular anatomic landmark that poses such difficulties is the distal tibia. Currently, there is very limited literature regarding a universal treatment(More)
Loss of soft tissue coverage distally around the foot poses threats of amputation of the exposed boney structures. An amputation of a portion of the foot leads to loss of the biomechanical structural integrity of the foot. This promulgates an imbalance with its inherent risks of developing new ulcers. This in turn potentiates the limb loss cycle. The(More)
A prospective study was performed to gauge the outcomes of a newer and modified approach to the surgical management and treatment of post-traumatic lower extremity end neuroma formation experienced by patients. Chronic peripheral nerve pain of the lower extremity that presents after a traumatic episode or post-surgical procedures continues to be a major(More)
OBJECTIVES High-resolution ultrasonography (US) can play an important role in studying nerves, as it has several advantages. Entrapments of distal tibial nerve branches can be mapped out or diagnosed with selective anesthetic blocks, and US can guide therapeutic procedures, such as radiofrequency ablation and selective infiltrations of specific nerve(More)
