This retrospective study analyzed patients improvement of pain and function who underwent simultaneous tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis with eevere disease involving the ankle and subtalar joints.
Mobile-bearing ankle replacement has become a popular treatment option outside of the United States. This study evaluates the safety and efficacy of the mobile-bearing prosthesis in treating end stage ankle arthritis. This procedure was tested against the Scandanavian Total Ankle Replacement (STAR).
There has been an increase in the treatment of end-stage tibiotalar arthritis with prosthetic replacement. This study evaluates the treatment of malleolar fractures with the two most common implants in the United States: the STAR procedure and the Agility total ankle arthroplasty.
This study evaluates different reconstructions for forefoot deformities due to rheumatoid arthritis. Eleven reconstructive procedures were performed on patients.
Various fixation methods that have been used for tibiotalcalcaneal arthrodesis (TTCA) including; multiple screws, pediatric blade plate, and external fixation. This study evaluated the compression in an intramedullary hindfoot arthrodesis cadaver using an external fixator and a "second generation" intramedullary compression nail.
Cheilectomy is the most common surgical procedure for the treatment of hallux rigidus. Hallux rigidus is a painful affliction of the great toe metatrasophalangeal (MTP) joint that results in a marked limitation of dorsiflexion. This limitation can restrict activity in the entire foot. This study analyses hallux rigidus and the operative treatment cheilectomy.
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.
