BACKGROUND Patients frequently present to the emergency department after ankle injuries, and the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) is commonly damaged. Musculoskeletal ultrasound (US) can help to make a rapid diagnosis. There is a paucity of literature describing techniques to image the ATFL with US, and the complex ankle anatomy and potential pitfalls make imaging challenging. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to estimate prevalence of perforating branches (PBs) of the peroneal vessels and determine… Expand


Ultrasound Examination for the Diagnosis of Chronic Anterior Talofibular Ligament Injury
The value of ultrasound (US) examination in identifying chronic ATFL injury is investigated and it is found that it is a reliable and accurate method to evaluate chronic AtFL injury. Expand
Evaluation of anterior talofibular ligament injury with stress radiography, ultrasonography and MR imaging
The diagnostic value of stress X-P, US, and MR imaging in diagnosis of ATFL injury is clarified and is considered to be the gold standard. Expand
Bedside ultrasonography by emergency physicians for anterior talofibular ligament injury
Bedside ultrasonography in patients with suspected anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) injury is another application of BUS in the ED and EPs can diagnose ATFL injury using BUS with a high degree of accuracy. Expand
Value of ultrasonography in assessment of recent injury of anterior talofibular ligament in children
X-ray is of limited value in diagnosing ankle joint pathologies in recent sprain injuries in children, soft tissue imaging, i.e. ultrasonography, is the basic examination to assess the ligament complex. Expand
Value of ultrasonography for detecting chronic injury of the lateral ligaments of the ankle joint compared with ultrasonography findings.
It is demonstrated that ultrasonography was highly sensitive and specific in detecting chronic lateral ligments injury of the ankle joint in patients presenting with chronic pain after ankle sprain. Expand
Vascular anatomy of the tibiofibular syndesmosis.
The location of the perforating branch of thePeroneal artery places it at risk when injury to the syndesmosis extends to the interosseous membrane 3 cm proximal to the ankle joint. Expand
Impacting clinical evaluation of anterior talofibular ligament injuries through analysis of ultrasound images
An efficient ATFL segmentation framework is developed that is computationally more efficient and more accurate with lowest rate of coefficient of variation (less than 5 %) that indicates the highest clinical significance of this research in the assessment of ATFL injuries. Expand
The arterial supply of the ankle joint and its importance for the operative fracture treatment
In order to damage the supplying vessels as little as possible, position, direction and penetration of the bone arteries of the talocrural joint were examined by corrosion preparation. Expand
Longitudinal analysis of effects of operator experience on accuracy for ultrasound detection of supraspinatus tears.
The incremental learning associated with initiation of shoulder ultrasonography in the orthopedic office setting could be quantified and overall accuracy to detect full-thickness supraspinatus tears plateaued after 100 ultrasounds. Expand
Enlarged perforating branch of peroneal artery and extra crural fascia in close relationship with the tibiofibular syndesmosis
Surgeons must be careful while dissecting this area since the perforating branch of peroneal artery might be anomalously enlarged as well as crossing in front of the tibiofibular syndesmosis in order to prevent vascular injury. Expand
