Achilles tendon rupture affects > 11,000 people each year in the UK, leading to prolonged periods away from work, sports and social activities. Traditionally, the ruptured tendon is held still in a plaster cast for ≥ 8 weeks. Functional bracing is an alternative treatment that allows patients to mobilise earlier, but there is little evidence about how bracing affects patients' recovery.
To use magnetic resonance imaging to assess the prevalence of foot and ankle ligament injuries and fractures associated with ankle sprain and not diagnosed by x-ray.
Ankle injuries are common at all levels of American football, and retired National Football League (NFL) players have a high prevalence of osteoarthritis (OA), but little is known about how ankle injuries influence OA prevalence and daily activities in this population or how surgical interventions for such injuries alter the risk of OA.
Data from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Injury Surveillance Program (ISP) has indicated that ankle injuries are the most common injuries among NCAA soccer players.
The purpose of this article is to show the sonographic anatomy of the extremities relevant to various ligamentous, tendinous, and articular injuries occurring in the hand, wrist, and ankle. A brief discussion and depiction of the specific elements relevant to the pathophysiologic mechanism of these entities is followed by demonstrations of the dynamic ultrasound techniques that can be used to diagnose these injuries. The schematics and video clips illustrate the normal and pathologic features of these injur...
The purpose of this study was to describe the functional outcomes and complications of unstable supination external rotation (SER) and pronation external rotation (PER) ankle fractures in adolescents. A secondary outcome was to compare functional outcomes of SER stage IV injuries that were treated definitively with closed reduction and cast application to a similar group of minimally displaced fractures treated with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF).
The primary aim was to assess and compare the total costs (direct health care costs and indirect costs due to loss of production) after early mobilization versus plaster immobilization in patients with a simple elbow dislocation. It was hypothesized that early mobilization would not lead to higher direct and indirect costs.
Tc-MDP-single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT has established itself as a useful modality in the assessment of the painful foot and ankle, owing to its ability to depict anatomical and functional information simultaneously. Despite its growing popularity, much of the literature describing the utility of Tc-MDP-SPECT/CT of the foot and ankle is limited to osseous and articular pathology, with descriptions of ligamentous pathology limited to just a handful of cases. Though assessment of soft ti...
Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries in basketball. Despite this, the incidence and setting of ankle sprains among elite basketball players are not well described.
It is difficult to compare foot infections in patients with diabetes to those without diabetes because foot infections are uncommon in people without diabetes. The aim of this study is to compare clinical outcomes in people with and without diabetes admitted to the hospital for an infected puncture wound. We evaluated 114 consecutive patients from June 2011 to March 2019 with foot infection resulting from a puncture injury; 83 had diabetes and 31 did not have diabetes. We evaluated peripheral arterial disea...
Postoperative infection is a severe complication after operative treatment of ankle fractures, associated with age, comorbidities, and severe soft tissue injuries. We assessed the efficacy of intramedullary fibular nailing for treating ankle fractures in patients at high risk of wound complications.
According to clinical guidelines, rolling walker users should walk with their feet between the posterior wheels of the walker; however approximately 50% of users do not.

J Strength Cond Res XX(X): 000-000, 2019-This study aimed to examine the incidence of injuries and their characteristics among professional Spanish futsal players during the preseason period and to compare injury-related variables in the context of both competition and training. Eleven futsal teams belonging to t...
Ankle sprain is one of the most common musculoskeletal injuries in our daily life, which may lead to chronic ankle instability, reducing the quality of patients' life and imposing a heavy burden on social medical security system. There are many kinds of methods treating ankle sprain, which can be divided into the conservative treatments and surgical intervention. Acupuncture is one of the conservative treatments for ankle sprain, especially in China. Therefore, we perform a systematic review and meta-analys...
Sports injuries of the upper extremity are a common problem seen by those who care for athletes and those who manage upper extremity injuries. The term "high-level athlete" may include adolescents and high school students, collegiate athletes, and of course, the professional athlete. However, the "weekend warrior" can sustain similar injuries and can have a similar desire to return to play as quickly as possible. The challenge in management of these injuries to the elbow, wrist, and hand is identifying thos...
This study reviewed the efficacy of a modified Ponseti method (MP) for treating rigid clubfeet insufficiently corrected by the classic Ponseti method. Briefly, the MP consisted of 3 procedures. First, Achilles tenotomy, abductor hallucis tenotomy, and plantar fasciotomy were conducted through 3 small incisions. Second, the talocalcaneal and talonavicular joints were manually reduced. Third, plaster immobilization was introduced to maintain the initial correction. Dimeglio scores, radiographs, and pain evalu...
Conventional ankle prophylactics restrict harmful ankle inversion motions that lead to injury. But these existing prophylactics also limit other ankle motions, potentially leading to detriments in functional joint capacity. The ankle roll guard (ARG) may alleviate the prevailing issues of existing ankle prophylactics and prevent harmful ankle inversion, while allowing other joint motions.
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".
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) involving the HINTEGRA prosthesis (Integra LifeSciences), arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis (AAA), and open ankle arthrodesis (OAA) in patients with isolated, non-deformed end-stage ankle arthritis.
This is part 2 of an article detailing the reduction in airbornerelated injuries over time. Part 1 examined the early history of airborne operations and provided evidence for the reduction in injuries over time; part 2 discusses interventions associated with the decline in injury rates. In 1943 at the United States (US) Army Airborne School, data showed that injuries were substantially reduced from 120 to 18 injuries/1000 trainees. Credit for the reduction was given to development of the parachute landing f...
During gait, the human ankle both bends with ease and provides push-off forces that facilitate forward motion. The ankle is crucial for support, stabilization, and adapting to different slopes and terrains. Individuals with lower limb amputation require an ankle-foot prosthesis for basic mobility.
Children are at high risk of injuries and wounds. The application of medical grade honey is a promising approach to improving the healing of wounds of various origin and severity. However, the use of medical grade honey in young paediatric patients remains limited. The aim of this study is to show the safety, efficacy and usefulness of medical grade honey in abdominal wounds, of different causes, in paediatric patients.
To define the risk and incidence of post-traumatic ankle arthritis requiring ankle arthroplasty or fusion after ankle fracture in a large cohort and compare that rate to matched healthy patients from the general population.
Paediatric aortic trauma is a rare injury which can be fatal if not identified and managed appropriately. Surgical repair remains the gold standard in moderate to severe aortic injuries. In the last decade however, endovascular treatment has gained popularity in children who have suitable vascular anatomy for intervention and are either not fit for surgery or in whom, endovascular intervention is the only alternative that will make a difference in the clinical outcome. Children pose a unique set of challeng...
Malreduction of the fibula and syndesmosis remains a common complication associated with the surgical management of ankle fractures. This malreduction leads to profound alterations in the biomechanics of the ankle, leading to chronic pain and premature degenerative changes of the ankle. It is possible to correct many fibular and syndesmotic malunions with reconstructive surgical techniques, of which there are several for revising and salvaging the malreduced ankle mortise and tibiofibular syndesmosis.
