The ankle joint is one of the major weight-bearing joints in the body. As a result of this function and partly due to its structure, the ankle is often injured, such as when jumping and landing incorrectly.
Minimally invasive surgery is a safe and reliable technique for Achilles Tendon Repair, researchers of a new study contend.
Minimally Invasive Sinus Tarsi Approach for Open Reduction and Internal Fixation of Calcaneal Fractures: Complications, Risk Factors, and Outcome Predictors
Open reduction and internal fixation of displaced intraarticular calcaneal fractures remain the gold standard of treatment, but the traditional extensile approach has been associated with relatively frequent complications. The current study aims to evaluate the less invasive sinus tarsi approach and to elaborate on the associated complications, risk factors, and outcome predictors.
Analysis of bone transport for ankle arthrodesis as a limb salvage procedure for the treatment of septic pilon fracture nonunion
Septic nonunion of the pilon region with ankle joint infection is challenging for orthopedic surgeons to treat and is associated with a high risk of limb loss. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of bone transport for ankle arthrodesis in salvaging the limp after septic ankle destruction of the pilon region.
A small study has found that injections of fat into the sole of the foot decrease pain and improve function.
