Popping ankles are those that pop, click, or crack with movement. This might occur when walking or standing up. Popping ankles are usually harmless, but they can sometimes be a symptom of an underlying medical condition.
To identify predictors of functional outcomes following treatment of ankle fracture in patients 55 years or older.
Total Ankle Arthroplasty Is Safer Than Total Hip And Knee Arthroplasty In The Early Postoperative Period
Total hip and knee arthroplasty (THA and TKA) are performed more commonly than total ankle arthroplasty (TAA), so patients and the orthopaedic community are more familiar with the likelihood of complications after THA and TKA than after TAA. The present study places early complication rates after TAA in the context of those after THA and TKA.
Background: Ankle fractures are one of the most common orthopedic injuries, and although most patients have a satisfactory outcome following operative fixation, there are patients that have persistent pain despite anatomic reduction. Intra-articular injuries have been suggested as one potential cause of these suboptimal outcomes. Our study assesses the clinical impact of performing an ankle arthroscopy during ankle fracture open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF).
The best treatment of an injury to the Achilles tendon is to focus on prevention. Obviously, it's best to avoid injuries altogether, but even in the setting of a problem with the Achilles, one of the most important aspects of treatment is to prevent progression and recurrence of the injury.
