Isolated Subtalar Arthrodesis for Avascular Necrosis of the Talus.

Summary of "Isolated Subtalar Arthrodesis for Avascular Necrosis of the Talus."

Isolated subtalar arthrodesis has been attempted in talar avascular necrosis (AVN) patients to preserve the tibiotalar joint and potential revascularization. This article reports the efficacy of isolated subtalar arthrodesis in the setting of AVN. A retrospective review of subtalar arthrodeses was performed on a cohort of 12 patients with talar AVN who underwent subtalar arthrodesis. The primary outcome was radiographic fusion with secondary outcomes of subsequent procedures, recurrent pain, and perioperative complications. Radiographic fusion of subtalar arthrodesis occurred in 12 of 12 patients. Five of six patients with traumatic etiology went on to have secondary procedures. One of six patients with atraumatic etiology underwent a secondary procedure for advancement of tibiotalar arthritis. In the setting of atraumatic talar AVN, this small cohort demonstrates that isolated subtalar arthrodesis is a safe and reliable procedure with high fusion rates and low need for secondary procedures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Formed by the articulation of the talus with the calcaneus.

Aseptic or avascular necrosis of the femoral head. The major types are idiopathic (primary), as a complication of fractures or dislocations, and LEGG-PERTHES DISEASE.

The surgical fixation of a joint by a procedure designed to accomplish fusion of the joint surfaces by promoting the proliferation of bone cells. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A family of proteins that were originally identified by their ability to cause NECROSIS of NEOPLASMS. Their necrotic effect on cells is mediated through TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR RECEPTORS which induce APOPTOSIS.

A species in the group RETICULOENDOTHELIOSIS VIRUSES, AVIAN of the genus GAMMARETROVIRUS originally isolated from ducks.
