Cryopreserved amnion tissues derived from amniotic membrane/umbilical cord (AM/UC) have been used extensively in ophthalmology for minimizing postoperative inflammation, pain, and adhesion formation following various surgical procedures. There is limited data in the current literature regarding the use of amnion tissue product in foot and ankle surgery. The(More)
UNLABELLED The management of ankle fractures with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) has been a proven method to help prevent deformity and posttraumatic arthritis. The incidence of continued ankle pain due to retained hardware after ORIF of ankle fractures has been documented. The goal of this study was to determine if the starting point for(More)
UNLABELLED Bone marrow aspiration (BMA) is a validated technique to harvest progenitor cells. BMA has many uses in foot and ankle surgery; however, donor site morbidity is a concern. The purpose of this study was to compare the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) pain scores after BMA at 3 different sites (iliac crest, distal tibia, and calcaneus) over a 12-week(More)
In ankle arthroplasty, little attention has been given to intraoperative nerve injury and its postoperative sequelae. The aim of the present anatomic study was to determine the relationship of the superficial peroneal nerve to the standard anterior approach for total ankle arthroplasty. The superficial peroneal nerve was dissected in 10 below-the-knee(More)
The fifth metatarsal Jones fracture is a well-documented injury occurring at the proximal diaphyseal-metaphyseal junction. Conservative versus surgical intervention has been discussed in published studies for the management of Jones fractures. Solid intramedullary fixation relies on accurate matching of the screw diameter to the intraosseous diameter. The(More)
Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is often coupled with various degrees of hindfoot valgus and equinus. Preoperative planning is essential to appropriate procedure choice and surgical efficiency. The purpose of the present study was to assess the anatomy at the harvest site for flexor digitorum longus tendon transfer, specifically at the master knot of(More)
Total ankle arthroplasty is an evolving treatment of ankle arthritis. One implant uses intramedullary guidance to enhance accuracy by accessing the tibial canal through the inferior aspect of the foot, potentially placing the subtalar joint articulation at risk. The purpose of the present cadaveric anatomic evaluation was to identify posterior subtalar(More)
