    BACKGROUND: Brachymetatarsia is a rare abnormality of the foot which occurs most frequently in the first and fourth metatarsals. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of gradual metatarsal lengthening by external fixator for treatment of brachymetatarsia of the fourth ray. The hypothesis was that with external fixation it would be possible to achieve the desired length of the metatarsal with a low rate of complications. Secondarily, in cases requiring a greater amount of ...

    STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective observational study.

    OBJECTIVE: Our aim is to define the efficacy and safety of serial selective arterial embolization (SAE) in the treatment of aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs), to explore potential treatment alternatives, and to define a therapeutic algorithm.

    SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: ABC is a benign lesion with an unpredictable behavior. Its treatment is challenging especially in poorly accessible surgical areas, such as spine and pelvis. Currently, the ...

    Adult acquired flatfoot encompasses a wide range of deformities. The goal of surgical treatment of adult acquired flatfoot is to achieve proper alignment of the hindfoot and maintain as much flexibility as possible in the foot and ankle complex; nevertheless, if subtalar arthritis is present, subtalar arthrodesis is usually mandatory. A lateral approach over the sinus tarsi is performed and subtalar joint is prepared removing remaining cartilage, reduced up to 5 degrees of heel valgus, ...

    PurposeDegenerative ankle arthropathy is a debilitating and increasingly widespread condition with worsening of quality of life. In last years, total ankle replacement has increased indications, thanks to advances in surgical technique, materials and design that provided new solutions for surgeons. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of total ankle replacement (TAR), implanted using a trans-fibular lateral approach in patients with high-grade degenerative ...

    Hallux and first MTP joint have a fundamental role in the transfer of the weight-bearing load during the normal ambulation. The aim of this paper is to review and analyze the available literature about the percutaneous surgical management of the hallux valgus to highlight its strengths and weakness, also comparing with other minimal invasive techniques. A systematic search of PubMed and Google Scholar databases has been performed, covering the period between 1981 and 2016. Various ...

    Magnetic scaffolds are becoming increasingly attractive in tissue engineering, due to their ability to enhance bone tissue formation by attracting soluble factors, such as growth factors, hormones and polypeptides, directly to the implantation site, as well as their potential to improve the fixation and stability of the implant. Moreover, there is increasing evidence that the synergistic effects of magnetic scaffolds and magnetic fields can promote bone repair and regeneration. In this ...

    Hallux rigidus, Latin for Stiff Toe, is characterized by an osteoarthritic degeneration of the articular surfaces of the first metatarsophalangeal joint. The aim of this literature narrative overview is to summarize and expose the great amount of management concepts and information, including the well-codified operative procedures and the more up to date knowledge about non-operative and surgical treatment of hallux rigidus. This may provide current information for physicians, medschool ...

    Hallux rigidus is a disease characterized by an osteoarthritic degeneration of the first metatarsophalangeal joint. Aetiology of hallux rigidus is not clear in the literature. History of trauma is considered one of the most common causes of unilateral hallux rigidus. Also, repetitive microtraumas or inflammatory and metabolic causes such as gout, rheumatoid arthritis and seronegative arthropathy can cause degeneration of the joint. The aim of this literature narrative overview is to ...

    PurposeAn unsatisfactory reduction and internal fixation of an ankle fracture can result in an alteration of the anatomical axes and distribution of the load on the ankle, with consequent development of chronic pain and articular degeneration. The aim of this study is to evaluate the results of the articular re-balancing with realignment and lengthening of the fibula in case of malunited distal fibular fractures.MethodsA review of prospectively collected data was performed for all ...

    Recovery of postural control and proprioception in patients affected by chronic ankle instability (CAI) and operated on capsulo-ligaments reconstructive surgery lacks of objective assessment. The aim of this study was to evaluate long-term post-surgical postural and proprioceptive control through the DPPS device in a cohort of patients operated on ligaments reconstruction through the modified Brostrom procedure at a minimum follow up of 12 months.Eleven patients with post-traumatic ...

    INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis by reamed intramedullary nail in the management of the distal tibia non-unions, associated with end-stage osteoarthritis of ankle and subtalar joints.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: 8 patients with radiographical and clinical diagnosis of non-union of the distal tibia have been treated with tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis by intramedullary retrograde nail and were retrospectively evaluated. ...

    INTRODUCTION: Rupture of the plantar fascia is a rare condition. It can also occur spontaneously and with no history of disease of the plantar fascia, above all in athletes. This review aims to systematically analyze all cases described in the literature regarding the rupture of the plantar fascia, evaluating incidence, risk factors, and treatments, considering which procedures show the best outcomes and the highest success rate.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: A systematic review of PubMed, ...

    BACKGROUND: Adult acquired flatfoot deformity is a well-known and recognized cause of pain and disability. The purpose of this retrospective study was to describe radiographic and clinical outcomes of the modified mini bone block distraction subtalar arthrodesis (SAMBB) in adult patients affected by adult flatfoot with subtalar joint osteoarthritis at a midterm mean follow-up.

    METHODS: A retrospective review of our database identified patients. Radiological imaging was used to evaluate ...

    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the epidemiology, incidence rate, incidence proportion, and prevalence of Achilles tendon ruptures (ATRs) in professional footballers and their performance after the injury.

    DATA SOURCES: Professional male footballers participating in Serie A in 11 consecutive seasons (2008/2009-2018/2019) were screened to identify ATRs through the online football archive transfermarkt.com. Exposure in matches and training was calculated. The number of matches played in the 5 ...
