End-stage ankle arthritis is a disabling condition that has a similar effect on morbidity, pain, and loss of function to hip arthritis. We compared clinical outcomes of total ankle replacement (TAR) i...
Considerations in the Surgical Management of End-Stage Ankle Arthritis: Commentary on an article by Andrea N. Veljkovic, BComm, MPH, MD, FRCSC, et al.: "Outcomes of Total Ankle Replacement, Arthroscopic Ankle Arthrodesis, and Open Ankle Arthrodesis for Isolated Non-Deformed End-Stage Ankle Arthritis".
The treatment of an infected total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) is largely dictated by the acuity of the infection. The following treatment algorithm modified for TAA is recommended..
In surgical correction of cavovarus deformity bony hindfoot procedures are required in most cases. For treatment planning X‑rays in two or more planes are usually used. In conventional X‑ray-techn...
The purpose of this study was to measure the three-dimensional range of motion of adjacent, unfused joint or joints after different arthrodesis of hindfoot.
The aim of this observational study is to collect and evaluate the current clinical experience gained from the Hindfoot Arthrodesis Nail (HAN) for ankle and hindfoot fusions.
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 ...
To evaluate the fusion status of the hindfoot bones after receiving the ViviGen graft, an FDA approved cellular bone matrix. This is used in a population indicated for hindfoot arthrodesis...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the S.T.A.R. device, as compared to patients undergoing ankle arthrodesis. The specific objectives are to show that S.T...
The study show the clinical results of limb salvage for primary malignant bone tumor of the distal tibia using block excision of the tumor and reconstruction with allograft arthrodesis wit...
A condition characterized by a broad range of progressive disorders ranging from TENOSYNOVITIS to tendon rupture with or without hindfoot collapse to a fixed, rigid, FLATFOOT deformity. Pathologic changes can involve associated tendons, ligaments, joint structures of the ANKLE, hindfoot, and midfoot. Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is the most common cause of acquired flatfoot deformity in adults.
Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.
Replacement of the ANKLE JOINT.
Fractures of any of the bones of the ANKLE.
The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.
