  • 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.

  • Outcomes Following Ankle Fracture Fixation With or Without Ankle Arthroscopy

    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).

  • Treatments for Achilles Tendonitis

    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.

  • Therapeutic Response of Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy for Insertional Achilles Tendinopathy Between Sports-Active and Nonsports-Active Patients With 5-Year Follow-up

    Background: Insertional Achilles tendinopathy (IAT) is a common cause of posterior heel pain. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has proven to be an effective treatment, but the relationship between therapeutic responses and sports activity levels has not been studied.

  • Operative Approaches to Ankle and Hindfoot Arthroscopy

    The role of arthroscopy in the management of ankle and hindfoot pathology management has increased greatly in recent years with the potential for lower complication rates, faster recovery, improved access, and improved outcomes when compared to open techniques. Procedural variations exist as techniques aim to optimize lesion access, decrease operative time, and improve patient safety. Our goal is to summarize the described approaches and patient positionings common in minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery for anterior, lateral, and posterior ankle pathologies.
