Avascular Necrosis of the Tibial Plafond Following Rotational Ankle Fractures.

Avascular necrosis (AVN) following rotational ankle fractures is most commonly described in the talus; however, it can also occur in the tibial plafond. These sequelae of ankle fractures are rarely de...

Syndesmotic fixation in unstable ankle fractures: Does early post-operative weight bearing affect radiographic outcomes?

To analyse whether early post-operative full weight bearing following syndesmotic ankle fixation affected radiographic outcomes suggestive of diastasis.

Better is the foe of good: Outcome of operatively treated ankle fractures in the elderly.

Ankle fractures are the second most common fractures of the lower extremities. Nonetheless, no standardized treatment protocol for unstable ankle fractures of the elderly exists today. Choices to trea...

Ankle fusion following failed initial treatment of complex ankle fractures in neuropathic diabetics.

Unstable ankle fractures in diabetics with peripheral neuropathy have an increased risk of postoperative complications, often leading to amputation. Primary ankle arthrodesis has been suggested as an ...

Complications of implant removal in ankle fractures.

Although the complications of internal fixation in ankle fractures are well-known in a number of reports, there have been few reports revealing the complications of implant removal in ankle fractures....

Immediate Weight-Bearing Ankle Study

This single-centre prospective cohort study will compare outcomes of immediate unprotected weight bearing as tolerated and range of motion on patients with surgically-treated rotational an...

Early Weight Bearing for Unstable Ankle Fractures Undergoing Operative Stabilization

The purpose of this randomized, controlled trial is to estimate the safety of early weight bearing on post ankle surgery. Patients who are indicated to have surgery for unstable ankle fra...

Early Weight Bearing on Supracondylar Distal Femur Fractures in Elderly Patients

The investigators will be looking at geriatric distal femur fractures. The investigators will prospectively enroll these patients and allow patients to either weight bear as tolerated or l...

Immediate Weight Bearing Versus Protected Weight Bearing in Supracondylar Distal Femur Fractures

This study is designed to examine if immediate weight bearing on a distal femur fracture fixed with a primary locking plate, either a distal condylar locking plate or a LISS (less invasive...

Weight-bearing Radiographs to Evaluate Stability in Ankles With Isolated Weber Type B Fractures.

We will conduct a prospective cohort study on the use of weight-bearing radiographs to evaluate stability in ankles with isolated, trans-syndesmotic (Weber type B) fibular fractures. Stabl...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures of any of the bones of the ANKLE.

The physical state of supporting an applied load. This often refers to the weight-bearing bones or joints that support the body's weight, especially those in the spine, hip, knee, and foot.

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.

Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).
