BACKGROUND Despite the popularity of the Broström procedure for secondary repair of chronic lateral ankle instability, there have been no biomechanical studies reporting on the strength of this secondary repair method, whether using suture fixation or suture anchors. HYPOTHESIS The purpose of our study was to perform a biomechanical comparison of the(More)
BACKGROUND : Damage control with external fixation (DC-EF) of femoral shaft fractures in polytrauma patients is becoming standard treatment in many trauma centers. However, skeletal traction (ST) has long been used in the temporization of fractures. The purpose of this study was to compare the major physiologic clinical outcomes of provisional ST with DC-EF(More)
BACKGROUND The term turf toe has been generally applied to athletic dorsiflexion injuries of the hallux metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint. Variations in injury patterns coupled with the complexity of the MTP joint makes the diagnosis of more severe injuries challenging and may lead to a failure in recognition of an unstable joint and a subsequently prolonged(More)
