To compare the outcomes of patients who undergo three different types of surgeries for ankle fusion and reconstruction.
It is understood that an elevated concentration of platelets in the mix of the arthrodesis construct applied intra-operatively to the bony surface, has osteo-generating and enhanced wound healing properties. With that knowledge there is a clinical need and enthusiasm for the application of concentrated platelets, which release a large quantity of growth factors to encourage recovery in non healing injuries or surgical sites. This study represents an effort to more clearly define the true clinical outcomes with or without biologic enhancement, and fulfills a need for fortifying evidence concerning the efficacy of ACP in live human bone healing-- based on radiographic and CT scans.

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 ...
A prospective, randomised study is to investigate the feasibility of conducting a superiority randomised controlled trial comparing the application of combined autologous PRP and concentra...
This study will evaluate the long term performance and safety data for the Cadence™ Total Ankle System (CTAS) when used for primary arthroplasty in patients with primary arthritis (e.g. ...
An open clinical trial transplanting CHONDRON (autologous chondrocytes) to ankle cartilage defect patients who are appropriate for the trial, and evaluating the validity and safety for 12 ...
Patients who sustain broken ankles have a very high risk of developing arthritis soon after their injury (within 2 years). This arthritis can cause increased pain and decreased level of fu...
Over the past decade, total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) has become a mainstay in the treatment of end-stage ankle arthritis. Currently in its fourth generation, the Scandanavian Total Ankle Replacement (...
In the last 2 decades, total ankle replacement has gained greater acceptance as a treatment option in patients with end-stage ankle osteoarthritis. However, there is a lack of literature on total ankl...
Syndesmotic injuries associated with ankle fractures are commonly treated with reduction and fixation using a transfixing screw. On rare occasions, however, progression to chronic instability of the s...
Stem cell therapy is a revolutionary new way to stimulate mesenchymal tissue regeneration. The platelets concentrate products started with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), followed by platelet-rich fibrin ...
Surgeons often rely on intra-operative histology (frozen sections [FS]) to determine the next step in surgical management during the second stage (re-implantation surgery) of 2-stage revision arthropl...
An autologous or commercial tissue adhesive containing FIBRINOGEN and THROMBIN. The commercial product is a two component system from human plasma that contains more than fibrinogen and thrombin. The first component contains highly concentrated fibrinogen, FACTOR VIII, fibronectin, and traces of other plasma proteins. The second component contains thrombin, calcium chloride, and antifibrinolytic agents such as APROTININ. Mixing of the two components promotes BLOOD CLOTTING and the formation and cross-linking of fibrin. The tissue adhesive is used for tissue sealing, HEMOSTASIS, and WOUND HEALING.
Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.
A preparation consisting of PLATELETS concentrated in a limited volume of PLASMA. This is used in various surgical tissue regeneration procedures where the GROWTH FACTORS in the platelets enhance wound healing and regeneration.
Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
Tendency of fluids (e.g., water) to move from the less concentrated to the more concentrated side of a semipermeable membrane.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
