Preoperative patient-reported outcomes measure information system, known as PROMIS, scores are predictive of 2-year postoperative improvement in patients with flexible adult-acquired foot deformity, data presented showed.
A high ankle sprain injury can cause a significant amount of pain and can dramatically impact your ability to stand, walk, or exercise. This is because this type of sprain causes symptoms like stiffness, soreness, and instability in your lower leg.
For patients with severe arthritis of the ankle, total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) provides better function at 4 years postoperatively than ankle arthrodesis (AA), according to a study published in The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.
Clinical And Plantar Fascial Morphologic Changes After Proximal Medial Gastrocnemius Release Treatment of Recalcitrant Plantar Fasciitis
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been used as a diagnostic and prognostic instrument to evaluate the results of conservative treatment for plantar fasciitis. However, there are scarce data available relative to changes in the plantar fascia after operative treatment. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the imaging changes in patients with recalcitrant plantar fasciitis treated operatively by means of proximal medial gastrocnemius release.
You’re strolling along when suddenly a pain shoots through your ankle for no obvious reason. Or perhaps you wake up one morning and your ankle is aching. Without an obvious injury, you might be wondering where the pain came from.
