Treatment Strategy of Ankle Fracture Combined With Deltoid Ligament Rupture

2016-12-01 16:08:22 | BioPortfolio


Ankle fracture is very common which is often combined with deltoid ligament injury. Although the incidence of deltoid ligament injury is high, but there is no unified and effective diagnosis method. Even whether the ankle fracture with deltoid ligament rupture needs surgical repair is still controversial. There is no high-level, multi-center, large sample, long-term follow-up clinical evidence to prove whether the repair of deltoid ligament is necessary or not. The main content of the project: 1 Achieve accurate classification of deltoid ligament rupture with intraoperative exploration. 2 Study the surgical indications and treatment guidelines by comparative study.

Is Deltoid Ligament Repair for Ankle Fracture Necessary?

The investigator hypothesizes that primary acute ankle deltoid ligament repair can help restore ankle radiographic congruity and functional outcomes.

A Prospective Randomized Pilot Study to Compare Open Versus Percutaneous Syndesmosis Repair of Unstable Ankle Fractures

This study evaluates fracture healing, anatomic reduction and return to functioning in patients with unstable Weber C type fractures of the ankle. Best outcomes are obtained when a good al...

Chronic Ankle Instability, Surgical Repair: Open Versus Closed

Rationale: Lateral ankle ligament injuries may be a result of ankle sprains. In 10-30% of patients with lateral ankle ligament injuries, chronic lateral ankle instability may be present. I...

Robot-assisted Rehabilitation of Ankle Fractures: Efficacy and Comparison With Traditional Methods

The purpose of this trial is to determine the effectiveness, safety and tolerability of robot-assisted rehabilitation using ARBOT in patients with ankle dysfunction resulting from work rel...

Intraoperative Three Dimensional Fluoroscopy Compared to Standard Fluoroscopy for the Assessment of Reduction of Ankle Fractures With Syndesmosis Disruption

Ankle fractures are common injuries that are being operated routinely. In order to restore the long term function and prevent arthritis of the ankle the broken fragments should be put in ...

Gravity Stress Radiographs and the Effect of Ankle Position on Deltoid Ligament Integrity and Medial Clear Space Measurements.

External rotation and gravity stress radiographs have been described to distinguish stable supination-external rotation-II (SER-II) ankle fractures from unstable SER-IV fractures. It has been previous...

Medial Malleolar Fractures and Associated Deltoid Ligament Disruptions: Current Management Controversies.

Operative fixation of medial malleolar fractures, whether isolated or in the setting of bi- or trimalleolar fractures, remains controversial. Increasingly, anatomic reduction and internal fixation is ...

Morphologic variations of the deltoid ligament of the medial ankle.

Morphological variations of the deltoid ligament were investigated in this study, with the aim of classifying the different types on the basis of their components.

Acute and Chronic Lateral Ankle Instability Diagnosis, Management, and New Concepts.

Lateral ankle instability is a common entity that can result in degenerative arthritis if left untreated. Acute ligament injuries should primarily be treated nonoperatively with a course of physical t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

There are two lateral ligaments of the ankle - internal and external. The internal lateral ligament is attached to the apex and anterior and posterior bodies of the inner malleolus and inserted into the navicular bone, the inferior calcaneo-navicular ligament, the sustentaculum tali of the os calcis, and the inner side of the astragalus. The external lateral ligament, also called the lateral collateral ligament, consists of three distinct fasciculi - the calcaneofibular, the anterior talofibular, and the posterior talofibular.

Procedures to repair or stabilize vertebral fractures, especially compression fractures by injecting BONE CEMENTS into the fractured VERTEBRAE.

Fractures due to the strain caused by repetitive exercise. They are thought to arise from a combination of MUSCLE FATIGUE and bone failure, and occur in situations where BONE REMODELING predominates over repair. The most common sites of stress fractures are the METATARSUS; FIBULA; TIBIA; and FEMORAL NECK.

Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.

Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.
