Ankle sprains are the most common musculoskeletal injury in the United States. Chronic lateral ankle instability can ultimately require operative intervention to decrease pain and restore stability to the ankle joint. There are no anatomic studies investigating the vascular supply to the lateral ankle ligamentous complex.
The ankle joint, including the talocrural and subtalar joints, plays an important role in human locomotion. Sex differences in walking patterns among young and old adults have been studied; however, little information exists on sex-based variations in talocrural and subtalar joint kinematics during walking. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate sex-based differences in the talocrural and subtalar joint kinematics during walking. We obtained lateral fluoroscopic images from 10 male and 7 female ...
The lateral ankle sprain is one of the most common lower extremity injuries in sports. Previous research has found that some prophylactic ankle supports reduce the risk of recurrent ankle sprains and provide extra support to the joint. However, there is a continued concern that these supports may negatively influence performance.
Passive oscillatory mobilizations are often employed by physiotherapists to reduce shoulder pain and increase function. However, there is little data about the neurophysiological effects of these mobilizations.
Inversion ankle sprains represent one of the most common traumatic injuries in the active sports population. Although most respond well to conservative treatment, some hide important lesions. Lateral ankle ligament injuries occur in more than 80% of all ankle sprains, with one-third of these developing chronic ankle instability (CAI). Lateral ankle ligament repair or reconstruction procedures aim to restore normal ankle anatomy and function in patients with CAI. Arthroscopic reconstruction techniques allow ...
Ballerinas use their ankle joints more extremely and sustain injuries on the ankle joint more frequently than non-dancers. Therefore, the ankle movement of dancers is important and should be studied to prevent injuries. Measuring ankle joint range of motion (ROM) using radiographs could demonstrate the contribution to motion of each joint. The aim of this study was to analyse and compare ankle joint movements and the ratio of each joint's contribution during movement between dancers and non-dancers, using r...
Ankle sprains continue to be among the most common musculoskeletal injuries, most of which never require surgical treatment. Surgical treatment has traditionally been successful for those patients whose symptoms do not improve with nonoperative care. However, recurrent instability, although rare, can occur early or late after a stabilization procedure, as the result of an acute traumatic event or chronic repetitive minor injury. A complete workup of patients with recurrent ankle instability should be comple...
Abnormal movement patterns and neuromuscular impairments at the ankle are thought to contribute to ankle joint degeneration in those with chronic ankle instability. However, these impairments are not confided to the ankle; rather, proximal neuromuscular deficiencies at the knee and aberrant movement patterns, thought to be responsible for reductions in knee joint health, have also been identified. While neuromuscular impairments and self-reported functional limitations have been examined in those with chron...
In unstable ankle fractures, the importance of reducing the lateral malleolus first to obtain an anatomic reduction of the talus is well established. Although this is a time-tested and common surgical approach, current surgical practice does not always follow the established dogma. Medial-first fixation may be a worthwhile alternative to lateral-first fixation in select instances. We performed a retrospective, cohort study in an urban level I trauma center to compare medial malleolus-first fixation of unsta...
To investigate the clinical measures of foot posture and morphology, multisegmented joint motion and play, strength, and dynamic balance in recreationally active young adults with and without a history of a lateral ankle sprain (LAS), copers, and chronic ankle instability (CAI).
Lateral ankle sprain injury is the most common musculoskeletal injury incurred by individuals who participate in sports and recreational physical activities. Following initial injury, a high proportion of individuals develop long-term injury-associated symptoms and chronic ankle instability. The development of chronic ankle instability is consequent on the interaction of mechanical and sensorimotor insufficiencies/impairments that manifest following acute lateral ankle sprain injury. To reduce the propensit...
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 anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL), whereas the other 20% of patients tear the ATFL and calcaneofibular ligament (CFL). Rarely, the posterior talofibular ligament is involved. An incidence of 10% to 30% of patients will fail conservative treatment and result in chronic ankle instability that may require surgical...
Acute injuries to the lateral ankle complex remain common and account for 20% to 25% of musculoskeletal injuries. Initial assessment should use the Ottawa ankle rules, and grading should take into account degree of mechanical instability. Nonoperative measures are preferable for all grades of injury; however, mechanical instability is a predictor for resprains. Functional treatment after a short period of relative immobilization gives satisfactory results, and residual chronic ankle instability can be manag...
A lower leg or hindfoot varus malalignment is a frequently encountered but underestimated cause of chronic ankle instability and ankle arthritis in the long term. When evaluating patients with ankle instability, a high index of clinical suspicion for tibia and hindfoot malalignment and subsequent biomechanics should be maintained. Management of lateral ankle instability in the presence of varus malalignment must comprise a generous indication for accurate hindfoot realignment. In young and active patients, ...
Ankle sprain is amongst the most frequent musculoskeletal injuries, particularly during sports activities. Chronic ankle instability (CAI) resulting from an ankle sprain might have severe long-lasting consequences on the ankle joint. Despite the fact that most patients will respond favourably to appropriate conservative treatment, around 20% will develop symptomatic CAI with sense of giving away and recurrent sprains leading to functional impairment. "Classical" surgical repair by Brostrom-like surgery in o...
This article presents a novel surgical technique in the management of open complete talocrural luxations and evaluates the results, and clinical benefits with its routine clinical utilization.
Life Gets Better in Time After Ankle Joint Replacement: Commentary on an article by Benjamin A. Hendy, MD, et al.: "Improvement of Outcomes During the First Two Years Following Total Ankle Arthroplasty".
Over the last 10 years, significant advances have been made and successful techniques have now been developed that effectively treat ankle instability via the arthroscope.Currently arthroscopic lateral ligament repair techniques can be grouped into "arthroscopic-assisted techniques," "all-arthroscopic techniques," and "all-inside techniques." Recent studies have proven these arthroscopic techniques to be a simple, safe, and biomechanically equivalent, stable alternative to open Brostrom Gould lateral ligam...
(1) To describe ankle strength and postural stability in patients with chronic lateral ankle instability and (2) to analyse the correlation between deficits in ankle strength and postural stability.
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the passive stiffness of the medial and lateral gastrocnemius (MG and LG), Achilles tendon (AT), and plantar fascia (PF) at different ankle and knee positions. MATERIAL AND METHODS Stiffness was assessed using a portable hand-held device (MyotonPRO). In 30 healthy participants (15 males, 15 females) with the knee fully extended or flexed 90°, stiffness of the MG, LG, AT, and PF was measured at 50° plantar flexion, 0° (neutral position), and 25° dorsiflexion...
Lateral ankle sprains commonly occur in an athletic population and can lead to chronic ankle instability (CAI). The objective of this study was to compare ankle strength measurements in athletes who have mechanical laxity and report functional instability after a history of unilateral ankle sprains.
Toe-in and toe-out walking are two strategies which have been shown to be effective in reducing the knee adduction moment in people with knee osteoarthritis. However, despite a positive biomechanical impact on the knee, altering foot rotation may impart unintended forces or joint positions on the ankle that could impact joint health. The kinematic and kinetic changes at the ankle during toe-in or toe-out walking have yet to be examined.
Foot and ankle joint disorders are serious issues for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We compared the differences between patients with RA whose first symptom involved a foot or ankle joint (FOOT group) versus other joints (non-FOOT group) within the Institute of Rheumatology, Rheumatoid Arthritis (IORRA) cohort in our institute.
Joint Clinical Consensus Statement of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons® and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners®: Etiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment Consensus for Gouty Arthritis of the Foot and Ankle.
Gout is a condition that commonly affects the foot and ankle, and practitioners who treat these structures should be aware of the methods to diagnose and treat this form of arthritis. Practitioners also need to recognize extra-articular manifestations of the disease. Although the acutely red, hot, swollen joint is a common presentation, chronic tophaceous gout can be associated with pain, nodule formation, and cutaneous compromise. Since the underlying causes that lead to excessive monosodium urate depositi...
