BACKGROUND Many ankle arthrodesis techniques excise the fibula or require a fibular osteotomy. Advantages of fibular preservation include increased surface area for bony union, preservation of the peroneal groove, prevention of valgus drift in cases of delayed union, and facilitation of future ankle arthroplasty. The goal of this study was to evaluate(More)
A stress fracture is caused by repetitive or unusual loading of a bone leading to mechanical failure. Fatigue type stress fractures occur in normal bone exposed to abnormally high repetitive loads, whereas insufficiency type stress fractures occur in abnormal bone exposed to normal loads. We describe three cases of insufficiency stress fractures that have(More)
INTRODUCTION Various methods using CT scan have been described to diagnose distal tibiofibular syndesmotic injuries. However, CT scan does not take into account the amount of cartilage within the distal tibiofibular joint and could therefore lead to false positive results. We present the first study correlating the findings of the distal tibiofibular(More)
There is little published on the radiology of small joint arthroplasty when compared with the commonly performed hip or knee replacement. The types of joint replacement, their clinical efficacy, and the expected radiographic appearances are reviewed for each of these upper and lower extremity joints. Potential complications and their radiographic(More)
A clinical and radiographic review was undertaken in 27 patients (30 feet) who underwent a chevron osteotomy stabilized with a double loop of polydioxanone suture. The mean patient age at the time of surgery was 40 years (range, 16 to 66 years). At 6 weeks postoperatively, all patients showed clinical and radiographic union at the osteotomy site. In 1 foot,(More)
BACKGROUND Schwannomas are uncommon slow growing tumours arising from the nerve sheath or Schwann cell. OBJECTIVE To report a case of multiple schwannomas arising form the achilles paratenon. METHODS A 38 year old man presented lumps on the dorsum of his leg. He was clinically evaluated, subjected to imaging studies and surgery. RESULTS 3 separate(More)
INTRODUCTION The tarsal tunnel is a fibro-osseous space located posterior to the medial malleolus. Several structures pass through this space, including the posterior tibial nerve, the posterior tibial artery and vein, and the tendons of the flexor hallucis longus, flexor digitorum longus, and posterior tibial muscles. The tarsal tunnel is bordered by the(More)
