The ankle rearfoot complex consists of the ankle and subtalar joints. This is an observational study on two test conditions of the rearfoot complex. Using high-speed biplane fluoroscopy, we present a method to measure rearfoot kinematics during normal gait and compare rearfoot kinematics between barefoot and shod gait. This study found that biplane fluoroscopy can [...]
An increase in the number of traumatic injuries to the metatarsophalangeal joint of the big toe, also known as turf toe, has been due to rise in participation on artificial playing surfaces and the use of more flexible shoewear. This study reviews the relevant anatomy, biomechanics, mechanism of injury, clinical assessment and treatment.
An extension sprain to the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint, commonly called "turf toe" has seen great notoriety since the 1980's. This study breaks down the historical perspective, epidemiology, anatomy, diagnosis, and treatment.
Lisfranc injuries in athletes can be difficult to treat. Proper treatment requires careful examination and use of imaging studies. This study analyzes the various treatment options along with proper management of Lisfranc injuries to ensure a successful recovery.
This retrospective study analyzed patients improvement of pain and function who underwent simultaneous tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis with eevere disease involving the ankle and subtalar joints.
Thromboembolic disease occurs post-operatively and is potentially fatal. Typically this disease is seen in patients who have undergone hip surgery. This study analyzes the correlating factors of thromboembolic disease after foot and ankle surgery.
Tendon Transfer Fixation: Comparing a Tendon to Tendon Technique vs. Bioabsorbable Interference-Fit Screw Fixationdrhaytmanek2021-04-12T09:24:17-06:00
A tendon transfer in the foot and ankle are used for tendon ruptures, deformities, and instabilities. This cadaver study compares a tendon to tendon fixation technique to a bioabsorbable interference-fit screw tendon fixation technique.
Tarsal coalition is a bridging between the tarsal bones of the foot. The bridge may be composed of bone, cartilage, fibrous tissue, or a combination of these. This study breaks down the anatomy, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment for a tarsal coalition.
The subtalar joint has had considerable attention as an area of injury and pathology. This study reviews the anatomy, biomechanics, and diagnostic techniques used for a the subtalar joint, in addition to some specific diagnoses.
This study examined 26 athletes that had continued pain after strenuous exercise. The study found that 15 patients had stress fractures, all of whom had positive roentgenographic studies.
