The geko™ device is indicated for the prevention and treatment of oedema. The aim of this study is to show that recruiting, and performing study assessments in ankle fracture patients requiring surgery to fix their ankle attending the James Cook Hospital is feasible, and to obtain data to support the powering of a larger study to demonstrate the effectiveness of the geko™ device at reducing length of stay for this population of patients. This study will also allow us to assess the acceptability, tolerability and compliance of treatment with the geko device.

A 67-year-old woman underwent internal fixation of an ankle fracture. Ten days postoperatively, the patient developed systemic hives, difficulty breathing, and oral swelling. At 8 weeks postoperativel...

Gait analysis related to functional outcome in patients operated for ankle fractures.

Ankle fractures are among the most common lower limb fractures. Associations between postoperative radiographic results and clinical outcome have been found, but less is known about the relevant ankle...

Ankle fracture - Correlation of Lauge-Hansen classification and patient reported fracture mechanism.

The genetic Lauge-Hansen classification is used for reconstruction of the mechanism of ankle injury. In this study, we addressed the question of agreement between the mechanism of the fracture as post...

Effect of Postoperative Ketorolac Administration on Bone Healing in Ankle Fracture Surgery.

In an effort to minimize narcotic analgesia and its potential side effects, anti-inflammatory agents offer great potential provided they do not interfere with bone healing. The safety of ketorolac adm...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.

There are two lateral ligaments of the ankle - internal and external. The internal lateral ligament is attached to the apex and anterior and posterior bodies of the inner malleolus and inserted into the navicular bone, the inferior calcaneo-navicular ligament, the sustentaculum tali of the os calcis, and the inner side of the astragalus. The external lateral ligament, also called the lateral collateral ligament, consists of three distinct fasciculi - the calcaneofibular, the anterior talofibular, and the posterior talofibular.

Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.

Internal devices used in osteosynthesis to hold the position of the fracture in proper alignment. By applying the principles of biomedical engineering, the surgeon uses metal plates, nails, rods, etc., for the correction of skeletal defects.

A device designed to stimulate, by electric impulses, contraction of the heart muscles. It may be temporary (external) or permanent (internal or internal-external).
