A Modified Technique for Fixation of Chronic Instability of the Distal Tibiofibular Syndesmosis Using a Wire and Button – Corrected Proof

July 14, 2014

Abstract: Distal tibiofibular syndesmosis injury accounts for 1% to 11% of soft tissue injuries of the ankle. Some acute syndesmotic injuries will fail to heal effectively owing to inadequate treatment or misdiagnosis, eventually resulting in chronic instability, which can destroy the stability of the ankle joint. Various surgical techniques have been described for fixation of the syndesmosis

Dynamic Positional Deformity of the Hallux – Corrected Proof

July 4, 2014

Abstract: The present study reports a case with concomitant tethering of the flexor tendon and extensor tendon of the hallux after closed tibiofibular shaft fractures. We have obtained good clinical results using tenotomy of the flexor hallucis longus tendon and Z-plasty lengthening of the extensor hallucis longus tendon. Because few studies have described the clinical results and operative methods for this type of combined deformity, we report a case with dynamic positional deformity of the hallux.

Medial Column Arthrodesis Using an Anatomic Distal Fibular Locking Plate – Corrected Proof

July 4, 2014

Abstract: The medial column fusion is performed for a multitude of etiologies, including peritalar subluxation deformity, Charcot arthropathy, trauma, post-traumatic degenerative joint disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. Various surgical techniques have been described for medial column arthrodesis. We describe a new fixation method using an anatomic distal fibular locking plate for medial column arthrodesis

Effects of the Lapidus Arthrodesis and Chevron Bunionectomy on Plantar Forefoot Pressures

July 1, 2014

Abstract: Hallux valgus with or without first ray insufficiency has been strongly implicated as a contributing factor in lesser metatarsal overload. The principle goals of a bunionectomy are to relieve the pain, correct the deformity, and restore first metatarsophalangeal joint congruity.
