An anterior midtibial stress fracture is an uncommon and difficult injury to treat. When a transverse radiolucent line is visible in the anterior tibial cortex, sometimes referred to as the "dreaded black line", a more aggressive treatment option is recommended in this study.
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.
The purpose of this study is to establish a "gold-standard" for properties of the meniscus in the knee. To determine the compressive material properties in the meniscus the study used six animal models at six different topographical locations.
Infrapopliteal Transcatheter Interventions of Limb Salvage in Diabetic Patients: Importance of Aggressive Interventional Approach and Role of Transcutaneous Oximetrydrhaytmanek2021-04-12T09:24:20-06:00
This study analyzed the effectiveness of infrapopliteal transcatheter interventions in slavaging ischemic limbs in diabetic patients who were referred for below the knee amputation. Diabetic patients are five times more likely to develop critical limb ischemia than non-diabetic patients.
Chronic leg pain has been a source of frustration for many athletes. Complaints of leg pain were typically labeled as shin splints and were accepted as a natural part of athletic participation. The development of sports medicine through technological advancements has allowed the term shin splints to become a more precise diagnosis. This study breaks down the term shin splints and determines adequate treatment options for a safe return to activity.
"Shin splints" is a common terms used for any kind of persistent exercise-related lower leg pain with no obvious cause. This pain can originate from a number of conditions. This study uses a methodical work-up designed to detect problems in all anatomic structures from the bone to skin, and narrows the possibilities and appropriate treatment methods.
This study facilitates the preoperative planning process for distal tibila osteotomy by determining angular correction with various wedge heights. The medial opening wedge distal tibial osteotomy is a relatively new technique for treatment of intermediate ankle joint arthritis. This procedure requires extensive preoperative planning to determine the size of the wedge that will restore anatomic alignment of the joint surface.
