The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which the Mangled Extremity Severity Score (MESS) predicted outcomes for soldiers sustaining combat related Gustilo-Anderson Type III tibia fra...
The anterolateral thigh flap has been used for coverage of defects in the foot and ankle for years. Conventional extended anterolateral thigh flaps do not undergo thinning procedures, which limit thei...
Musculoskeletal diseases affecting the foot and ankle are common and can result in debilitating pain and chronic disability. The purpose of this study was to estimate the economic burden associated wi...
The purpose of this clinical trial is to establish equivalence or incremental benefit of the Walkaide device to standard of care Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) for patients with foot drop due t...
This study is being done to test the possible benefits of task-specific focused ankle training using the Ankle-Bot on subjects with Multiple Sclerosis who have "foot-drop." The study also...
The presence of foot drop limits normal gait. Our prior data has suggested that approximately 30% of MS patients have foot drop. Although the investigators have observed that "task-speci...
In this study we are trying to determine the incidence of flat foot (also called pes planus) among patients who have had an ankle fracture. As compared to the general population, it is pr...
The purpose of this study is to see if the clinical outcome success rate of Total Ankle Arthroplasty is similar to that of Ankle Arthrodesis over a period of 10 years. This will include...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.
Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot.

The distal extremity of the leg in vertebrates, consisting of the tarsus (ANKLE); METATARSUS; phalanges; and the soft tissues surrounding these bones.
Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.
