The crucial role of the spring ligament complex within the pathologic process that leads to flatfoot deformity has evolved recently. There has been improvement in the anatomic knowledge of the spring ligament and understanding of its complex relationship to the deltoid complex and outstanding advances in biomechanics concepts related to the spring ligament. Optimization of flatfoot treatment strategies are focused on a renewed interest in the spring ligament and medial soft tissue reconstruction in concert with bony correction to obtain an adequate reduction of the talonavicular deformity and restoration of the medial longitudinal arch.

Name: Foot and ankle clinics
The structural importance of the spring ligament complex in arch stability has been described. Furthermore, the pathology of this complex is often noted in patients with posterior tibial tendon dysfun...
This article reviews the imaging aspects relevant to ligamentous instabilities of the foot and ankle with a focus on MRI and ultrasound imaging. A pictorial review of the anatomy of the medial and lat...
Clinical tests for posterolateral rotatory instability of the elbow apply external torsional moments to the forearm; however, biomechanical studies of lateral collateral ligament injuries and their su...
It is unclear which patients with recurrent patellar instability require a bony procedure in addition to medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction.
Chronic ankle instability following ankle sprains causes pain and functional problems such as recurrent giving way. Within the 3 ligaments of the lateral ligament complex, 80% of patients tear the ant...
Lateral ankle instability may be acute or chronic. Acute instability usually occurs due to extreme rear foot supination with planter-flexion trauma leads to injury of lateral collateral li...
The operative management of chronic patellar instability has been controversial. Medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction has gained success recently and might be superior to other so...
Anterior cruciate ligament injury is very common knee injury. Especially Anterior cruciate ligament complete rupture leads to knee joint instability and degenerative change of the knee. An...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction results in superior functional outcomes compared to medial retinacular plication surgery in ...
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...
The occurrence of highly polymorphic mono- and dinucleotide MICROSATELLITE REPEATS in somatic cells. It is a form of genome instability associated with defects in DNA MISMATCH REPAIR.
A collective term for muscle and ligament injuries without dislocation or fracture. A sprain is a joint injury in which some of the fibers of a supporting ligament are ruptured but the continuity of the ligament remains intact. A strain is an overstretching or overexertion of some part of the musculature.
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.
A spiral thickening of the fibrous lining of the cochlear wall. Spiral ligament secures the membranous COCHLEAR DUCT to the bony spiral canal of the COCHLEA. Its spiral ligament fibrocytes function in conjunction with the STRIA VASCULARIS to mediate cochlear ion homeostasis.
A fibromuscular band that attaches to the UTERUS and then passes along the BROAD LIGAMENT, out through the INGUINAL RING, and into the labium majus.
