The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical results of Osteochondral Autograft Transfer System (OATS) for the treatment of symptomatic osteochondral defects of the talus using standardized outcome analysis. Nineteen patients with symptomatic osteochondral defect (OCD) of the talus were treated with autologous osteochondral grafting. There were(More)
BACKGROUND Mobile-bearing ankle replacements have become popular outside of the United States over the past two decades. The goal of the present study was to perform a prospective evaluation of the safety and efficacy of a mobile-bearing prosthesis to treat end stage ankle arthritis. We report the results of three separate cohorts of patients: a group of(More)
Thirty-four ankle arthrodeses performed using an arthroscopic technique were followed for an average of 8 years. The fusion rate was 97% and the average time to fusion was 9 weeks; 86% of patients had good or excellent functional results. There were no wound infections or neurological injuries. There was one malunion and one additional minor complication.(More)
BACKGROUND There has been a resurgence of interest in total ankle replacement (TAR) due to improved results with newer prostheses. However, long-term survivorship data has been limited. The STAR™ Ankle prosthesis is the first three-part prosthesis approved for use in the United States. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-four total ankle replacements were(More)
Despite increased awareness of stress fractures of the tarsal navicular and a heightened index of suspicion by those physicians evaluating sports related foot pain, these injuries remain difficult to diagnose. There is often a considerable delay in the diagnosis because of its subtle and often vague clinical presentation. Accompanying a thorough history and(More)
The lower esophageal ring is an unusual clinical disorder of the esophagus and consists of a thin submucosal circumferential scar that forms in the lower esophagus. It is probably an acquired lesion resulting from repeated insults to the lower esophageal mucosa. The symptom of dysphagia results from esophageal obstruction, and the degree of obstruction is(More)
Many transplant centers use endoscopically directed brachytherapy to provide locoregional control in patients with otherwise incurable cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) who are awaiting liver transplantation (LT). The use of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)-directed photodynamic therapy (PDT) as an alternative to brachytherapy for providing(More)
Keratotic lesions on the plantar aspect of the foot develop beneath an osseous prominence and can result in substantial disability. This occurs because, during normal gait, the metatarsal head area is subjected to more prolonged stress than any other area on the plantar aspect of the foot. In the treatment of this disorder, it is imperative to establish the(More)
BACKGROUND Prior studies have demonstrated a correlation between the degree of preoperative coronal plane deformity and failure following ankle replacement. We reviewed all of our patients who underwent ankle replacement utilizing the STAR prosthesis from 2000 to 2009 to evaluate the outcome of those with moderate (10 to 19 degrees) and severe (20 degrees(More)
The bunionette deformity results in pain about the lateral and/or the plantar aspect of the fifth metatarsal head. It is important to carefully assess the deformity anatomically in order to select the proper surgical procedure to correct this painful affliction. Knowledge of pathoanatomy and certain surgical procedures can be used to correct the deformity.
