Comparing Non-operative Treatment Pathways for Achilles Tendon Rupture
Cast immobilization with prolonged non-weight-bearing has traditionally been used to manage patients with a first-time acute Achilles tendon rupture. Could functional rehab and early weight-bearing in a walking boot provide comparable – or even better – outcomes while allowing patients greater mobility?
Comparison of Outcomes Between Suture Button Technique and Screw Fixation Technique in Patients With Acute Syndesmotic Diastasis: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
Our aim was to compare the outcome between suture button (SB) stabilization and syndesmotic screw fixation (SF) in patients with acute syndesmotic diastasis.
Causes of Bottom of Foot Pain and Treatments
Your feet are vital shock absorbers. The bottom of your foot strikes the ground with every step. When it hurts, the pain can really disrupt your life.
Minimally invasive bunionectomy may successfully treat severe hallux valgus deformity
Third-generation minimally invasive chevron and akin osteotomy demonstrated significant improvements in clinical outcomes and deformity correction in patients with severe hallux valgus,
Evaluating Prospective Patient-Reported Pain and Function Outcomes After Ankle and Hindfoot Arthrodesis
Hindfoot and ankle fusions are mechanically limiting procedures for patients. However, patient-reported outcomes of these procedures have not been well studied. This study assessed outcomes of hindfoot and ankle fusions by using Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Physical Function (PF) and Pain Interference (PI) Computer Adaptive Tests (CATs).
