Use of Cartilage Extracellular Matrix and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate in Treatment of Osteochondral Lesions of the Talus

2021-04-12T09:24:14-06:00

Osteochondral lesions of the talus are generally the result of trauma and often result in persistent pain and disability. Various treatment options have evolved to treat these challenging problems, ranging from conservative management to marrow stimulation and cartilage or chondrocyte transplantation. Microfracture is the first line of treatment for many of these lesions. However, there [...]

Outcomes Following Microfracture in Grade 3 and 4 Articular Cartilage Lesions of the Ankle

2021-04-12T09:24:14-06:00

The purpose of this study was to document outcomes following microfracture of articular cartilage lesions of the ankle. Our hypothesis was that patients who underwent ankle microfracture would have good to excellent outcomes. This study found that patients who underwent microfracture for grade 3 or 4 ankle articular cartilage lesions had high patient satisfaction. Patients [...]

Prospective Controlled Trial of STAR Total Ankle Replacement Versus Ankle Fusion: Initial Results

2021-04-12T09:24:18-06:00

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).

Intraspecies and Interspecies Comparison of the Compressive Properties of the Medial Meniscus

2021-04-12T09:24:20-06:00

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.

Evaluation of Compression in Intramedullary Hindfoot Arthrodesis

2021-04-12T09:24:21-06:00

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.

Comparison of Chevron Osteotomy and Modified McBride Bunionectomy for Correction of Mild to Moderate Hallux Valgus Deformity

2021-04-12T09:24:21-06:00

This study compares the results of the Cheveron osteotomy to the DuVries' modification of the McBride procedure using identical criteria in two groups of patients. The study used two controlled groups: a Chevron osteotomy group and a McBride bunionectomy without metatarsal osteotomy for treatment of mild to moderate hallux valgus.
