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.
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.
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.
