A Percutaneous Knotless Technique for Acute Achilles Tendon Ruptures

2021-04-12T09:24:09-06:00

Achilles tendon ruptures are a common tendon injury, usually occurring in middle-aged men during recreational sporting activities. Both nonoperative and operative management are employed to treat these injuries. Several operative treatments are described in the literature, including percutaneous Achilles repair, mini-open repair, and open repair. Open Achilles repair is associated with higher rates of [...]

Biomechanical Analysis of an Arthroscopic Broström Ankle Ligament Repair and a Suture Anchor-Augmented Repair

2021-04-12T09:24:13-06:00

Secondary surgical repair of ankle ligaments is often indicated in cases of chronic lateral ankle instability. Recently, arthroscopic Broström techniques have been described, but biomechanical information is limited. The purpose of the present study was to analyze the biomechanical properties of an arthroscopic Broström repair and augmented repair with a proximally placed suture anchor. It [...]

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Characterization of Individual Ankle Syndesmosis Structures in Asymptomatic and Surgically Treated Cohorts

2021-04-12T09:24:13-06:00

Syndesmosis sprains can contribute to chronic pain and instability, which are often indications for surgical intervention. The literature lacks sufficient objective data detailing the complex anatomy and localized osseous landmarks essential for current surgical techniques. This study found that data regarding anatomic attachment sites and distances to bony prominences can optimize current surgical fixation techniques, [...]

Ankle Syndesmosis: A Qualitative and Quantitative Anatomic Analysis

2021-04-12T09:24:13-06:00

Syndesmosis sprains can contribute to chronic pain and instability, which are often indications for surgical intervention. The literature lacks sufficient objective data detailing the complex anatomy and localized osseous landmarks essential for current surgical techniques. This study found that the qualitative and quantitative anatomy of the syndesmotic ligaments was reproducibly described and defined with respect to [...]
