It is loosely attached to the external fibrous capsule and secretes SYNOVIAL FLUID.Arthritis, Rheumatoid: A chronic systemic disease, primarily of the joints, marked by inflammatory changes in the synovial membranes and articular structures, widespread fibrinoid degeneration of the collagen fibers in mesenchymal tissues, and by atrophy and rarefaction of bony structures. Etiology is unknown, but autoimmune mechanisms have been implicated.Muscle Spasticity: A form of muscle hypertonia associated with upper MOTOR NEURON DISEASE. Resistance to passive stretch of a spastic muscle results in minimal initial resistance (a "free interval") followed by an incremental increase in muscle tone. Tone increases in proportion to the velocity of stretch. Spasticity is usually accompanied by HYPERREFLEXIA and variable degrees of MUSCLE WEAKNESS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p54)Cartilage, Articular: A protective layer of firm, flexible cartilage over the articulating ends of bones.

The term hemiparesis (see PARESIS) refers to mild to moderate weakness involving one side of the body.Temporomandibular Joint Disorders: A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia.

Metabolism and inflammatory mediators in the peritendinous space measured by microdialysis during intermittent isometric exercise in humans. (1/1070)

1. The metabolic processes that occur around the tendon during mechanical loading and exercise are undescribed in man. These processes are important for understanding the development of overuse inflammation and injury. 2. A microdialysis technique was used to determine interstitial concentrations of glycerol, glucose, lactate, prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and thromboxane B2 (TXB2) as well as to calculate tissue substrate balance in the peritendinous region of the human Achilles tendon. Recovery of 48-62 % (range) at rest and 70-77 % during exercise were obtained for glycerol, glucose and PGE2. 3. Six young healthy humans were studied at rest, during 30 min of intermittent static plantar flexion of the ankle at a workload corresponding to individual body weight, and during 60 min of recovery. Microdialysis was performed in both legs with simultaneous determination of blood flow by 133Xe washout in the same area, and blood sampling from the radial artery. 4. With exercise, the net release of lactate as well as of glycerol from the peritendinous space of the Achilles tendon increased 2-fold (P < 0.05). Furthermore a 100 % increase in interstitial concentration of PGE2 and TXB2 was found, but it was only significant for TXB2(P < 0.05). As peritendinous blood flow increased 2- to 3-fold during intermittent static contractions, this indicates also that the output of these substances from the tissue increased during exercise. 5. This study indicates that both lipid and carbohydrate metabolism as well as inflammatory activity is accelerated in the peritendinous region of the human Achilles tendon with dynamic loading.  (+info)

Amplitude of the human soleus H reflex during walking and running. (2/1070)

1. The objective of the study was to investigate the amplitude and modulation of the human soleus Hoffmann (H) reflex during walking and during running at different speeds. 2. EMGs were recorded with surface electrodes from the soleus, the medial and lateral head of the gastrocnemius, the vastus lateralis and the anterior tibial muscles. The EMGs and the soleus H reflex were recorded while walking on a treadmill at 4.5 km h-1 and during running at 8, 12 and 15 km h-1. 3. The amplitudes of the M wave and the H reflex were normalized to the amplitude of a maximal M wave elicited by a supramaximal stimulus just after the H reflex to compensate for movements of the recording and stimulus electrodes relative to the nerve and muscle fibres. The stimulus intensity was set to produce M waves that had an amplitude near to 25 % of the maximal M wave measured during the movements. As an alternative, the method of averaging of sweeps in sixteen intervals of the gait cycle was applied to the data. In this case the amplitude of the H reflex was expressed relative to the maximal M wave measured whilst in the standing position. 4. The amplitude of the H reflex was modulated during the gait cycle at all speeds. During the stance phase the reflex was facilitated and during the swing and flight phases it was suppressed. The size of the maximal M wave varied during the gait cycle and this variation was consistent for each subject although different among subjects. 5. The peak amplitude of the H reflex increased significantly (P = 0.04) from walking at 4.5 km h-1 to running at 12 and 15 km h-1 when using the method of correcting for variations of the maximal M wave during the gait cycle. The sweep averaging method showed a small but non-significant decrease (P = 0. 3) from walking to running at 8 km h-1 and a small decrease with running speed (P = 0.3). The amplitude of the EMG increased from walking to running and with running speed. 6. The relatively large H reflex recorded during the stance phase in running indicates that the stretch reflex may influence the muscle mechanics during the stance phase by contributing to the motor output and enhancing muscle stiffness.  (+info)

Ankle arthrodesis using an anterior AO T plate. (3/1070)

We describe a surgical technique for ankle arthrodesis using an anterior approach to the ankle and internal fixation with an anteriorly-placed AO T plate. A total of 33 patients who had ankle arthrodeses have been followed retrospectively. Thirty-one (94%) of the ankles fused although two patients developed tibial stress fractures. Four patients had a superficial infection which did not prevent union. The surgical technique is simple, easily reproducible and gives excellent clinical results with a high rate of union.  (+info)

Efficacy of sustained blood levels of interleukin-1 receptor antagonist in animal models of arthritis: comparison of efficacy in animal models with human clinical data. (4/1070)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the role of interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra) in rat adjuvant arthritis and rat type II collagen-induced arthritis, and to compare the efficacy in rat models with that seen in human clinical trials of IL-1Ra. METHODS: Rats with developing adjuvant arthritis or established collagen-induced arthritis were treated with IL-1Ra by continuous infusion in order to determine and maintain efficacious blood levels of this IL-1 inhibitory protein in the rats for comparison with human clinical data. The effects of treatment in the rats were monitored by sequential caliper measurement of the ankle joints, determination of final paw weights, and histologic evaluation with particular emphasis on bone and cartilage lesions. The effects of IL-1Ra on joint swelling and radiographic bone damage in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in a 6-month trial were compared with the findings in rats. RESULTS: Dramatic differences in the profile of IL-1Ra activity were seen between the 2 groups of rats. Modest antiinflammatory effects were observed in the adjuvant arthritis rats treated with IL-1Ra. However, marked inhibition of bone resorption occurred, even at doses with which antiinflammatory activity was not seen. In contrast, IL-1Ra treatment of rats with established collagen-induced arthritis resulted in nearly complete suppression of all aspects of the disease when adequate blood levels of IL-1Ra were maintained. Treatment of RA patients with IL-1Ra (150 mg daily) resulted in modest inhibition of joint swelling and inhibition of radiographic progression of bone lesions. CONCLUSION: IL-1 appears to be of major importance in mediating the bone resorption that occurs in rat adjuvant arthritis, but is less important in the pathogenesis of periarticular inflammation in this disease. In contrast, IL-1 is of major importance in mediating all aspects of disease progression in rat collagen-induced arthritis. Similar to the response in adjuvant arthritic rats, RA patients treated with IL-1Ra showed only modest antiinflammatory activity, but had evidence of inhibition of progression of bone resorption. However, a comparison of the plasma levels of IL-1Ra in humans and rats suggests that the optimal level of dosing for continuous saturation of IL-1 receptors may not have been achieved in humans, although this was achieved in the rat studies.  (+info)

The role of fibular length and the width of the ankle mortise in post-traumatic osteoarthrosis after malleolar fracture. (5/1070)

We assessed the role of fibular length and the width of the ankle mortise as risk factors in the occurrence of post-traumatic osteoarthritis of the ankle joint by comparison of radiographs of the affected and unaffected sides. A shortened fibular malleolus (P < 0.01), a wide ankle mortise (P < 0.01) and Weber type B fracture (P < 0.01) were significantly associated with the development of osteoarthrosis but an elongated fibular (P > 0.05) and a narrowing of the ankle mortise (P > 0.07) were not.  (+info)

Altered reflex sensitivity after repeated and prolonged passive muscle stretching. (6/1070)

Experiments were carried out to test the effect of prolonged and repeated passive stretching (RPS) of the triceps surae muscle on reflex sensitivity. The results demonstrated a clear deterioration of muscle function immediately after RPS. Maximal voluntary contraction, average electromyographic activity of the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles, and zero crossing rate of the soleus muscle (recorded from 50% maximal voluntary contraction) decreased on average by 23.2, 19.9, 16.5, and 12.2%, respectively. These changes were associated with a clear immediate reduction in the reflex sensitivity; stretch reflex peak-to-peak amplitude decreased by 84. 8%, and the ratio of the electrically induced maximal Hoffmann reflex to the maximal mass compound action potential decreased by 43. 8%. Interestingly, a significant (P < 0.01) reduction in the stretch-resisting force of the measured muscles was observed. Serum creatine kinase activity stayed unaltered. This study presents evidence that the mechanism that decreases the sensitivity of short-latency reflexes can be activated because of RPS. The origin of this system seems to be a reduction in the activity of the large-diameter afferents, resulting from the reduced sensitivity of the muscle spindles to repeated stretch.  (+info)

The consistent presence of the human accessory deep peroneal nerve. (7/1070)

Twenty-four human legs were dissected macroscopically to study the morphological details of the accessory deep peroneal nerve. This nerve arose from the superficial peroneal nerve and descended in the lateral compartment of the leg, deep to peroneus longus along the posterior border of peroneus brevis. Approaching the ankle joint, this nerve passed through the peroneal tunnels to wind around the lateral malleolus; it then crossed beneath the peroneus brevis tendon anteriorly to reach the dorsum of the foot. The accessory deep peroneal nerve was found in every case examined and constantly gave off muscular branches to peroneus brevis and sensory branches to the ankle region. In addition, this nerve occasionally had muscular branches to peroneus longus and extensor digitorum brevis, and sensory branches to the fibula and the foot. The anomalous muscles around the lateral malleolus were also innervated by this nerve. Neither cutaneous branches nor communicating branches with other nerves were found. The present study reveals that the accessory deep peroneal nerve is consistently present and possesses a proper motor and sensory distribution in the lateral region of the leg and ankle. It is not an anomalous nerve as has previously been suggested.  (+info)

Thickness of human articular cartilage in joints of the lower limb. (8/1070)

OBJECTIVES: (a) To determine the topographical variations in cartilage thickness over the entire surfaces of cadaveric lower limb joints, and (b) to examine the correlations between: cartilage thickness and its site specific modulus; cartilage thickness and donor age, weight, height, and body mass index. METHODS: The cartilage thickness of 11 sets of cadaveric human joints each comprising an ankle, knee, and hip was measured using a needle probe technique. Statistical analysis was used to compare the cartilage thickness of the different lower limb joints and the differences in cartilage thickness over the surface of individual joints. It was further examined whether cartilage had a correlation with its stiffness, and any of the details of the specimen donors such as age, weight, height, and body mass index. RESULTS: The mean cartilage thickness of the knee was significantly greater than that of the ankle and hip (p < 0.001) in all 11 sets of joints, while the cartilage thickness of the hip was significantly greater than that of the ankle in 10 sets of joints (p < 0.001). The mass of specimen donors was found to correlate with the mean cartilage thickness of all three lower limb joints. A correlation was also found between the height of donors and the mean cartilage thickness of the knee and hip joints, while only in the ankle joint was a correlation found between the mean cartilage thickness and the body mass index of the specimen donors. A further correlation was found between cartilage thickness and its modulus; the thinner the cartilage, the higher the modulus. CONCLUSIONS: The thickness of articular cartilage seems to be related to the congruance of a joint; thin cartilage is found in congruent joints such as the ankle, whereas thick cartilage is found in incongruent joints such as the knee. The correlations in this study imply that the larger and heavier was a donor the thicker was the cartilage in the lower limb joints. The data further suggest the presence of an inverse relation between the mean cartilage thickness and mean compressive modulus in each of the joints examined.  (+info)

Ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that orthopaedic surgeons use to treat problems in the ankle joint. Ankle arthroscopy uses a thin fiber-optic camera (arthroscope) that can magnify and transmit images of the ankle to a video screen. Ankle arthroscopies can reduce ankle pain and improve overall function.. Arthroscopy can be used to diagnose and treat different disorders of the ankle joint. The list of problems that can sometimes be treated with this technology is constantly evolving and includes:. Ankle arthritis: Ankle fusion is a treatment option for many patients with end-stage ankle arthritis. Ankle arthroscopy offers a minimally invasive way to perform ankle fusion. Results can be equal to or better than open techniques.. Ankle fractures: Ankle arthroscopy may be used along with open techniques of fracture repair. This can help to ensure normal alignment of bone and cartilage. It also may be used during ankle fracture repair to look for cartilage injuries inside ...
The purpose of an ankle replacement is to relieve pain from ankle arthritis while still allowing the ankle to move. Multiple types of arthritis commonly affect the ankle including osteoarthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Ankle replacement consists of resurfacing the joint including the tibia (shin bone) and the talus (ankle bone) with a metal alloy, and then placing a plastic spacer in between the metal components to act as a bearing allowing motion.. Ankle Replacement versus Ankle Fusion. When an ankle is fused, the damaged cartilage is removed and the tibia bone and talus bone heal together with bridging bone, thereby eliminating the ankle joint. This results in good pain relief, but also results in a loss of motion at the ankle joint. When an ankle is replaced, the damaged articular cartilage is removed and replaced with metal alloy (CoCr) and plastic (polyethylene) components. These implants replace the painful joint surface and are designed to maintain joint ...

Because there are no epidemiologic data regarding the frequency of ankle osteoarthritis (OA) in a general population, we sought to analyze this disabling condition in a large, well-characterized, community-based cohort of older individuals. Methods. Cross-sectional data, including ankle radiographs, were from the most recent data collection (2013-2015) of the Johnston County OA Project. Radiographic ankle OA (rAOA) was defined as a Kellgren-Lawrence arthritis grading scale of ≥ 2 on weight-bearing lateral and mortise radiographs. The presence of pain, aching, or stiffness in the ankles as well as history of ankle injury (limiting ability to walk for at least 2 days) were assessed. Chi-square ...

N2 - The material properties of normal cadaveric human cartilage in the ankle mortice (tibiotalar articulation) were evaluated to determine a possible etiologic mechanism of cartilage injury of the ankle when an obvious traumatic episode is not present. Using an automated indentation apparatus and the biphasic creep indentation methodology, creep indentation experiments were performed in five sites in the distal tibia, one site in the distal fibula, and eight sites in the proximal talus of 14 human ankles (seven pairs). Results showed significant differences in the mechanical properties of specific human ankle cartilage regions. Topographically, tibial cartilage is stiffer (1. 19 MPa) than talar cartilage (1.06 MPa). Cartilage in the anterior medial portion of the tibia has the largest aggregate modulus (HA=1.34 MPa), whereas the ...
Ankle replacement, or ankle arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the damaged articular surfaces of the human ankle joint with prosthetic components. This procedure is becoming the treatment of choice for patients requiring arthroplasty, replacing the conventional use of arthrodesis, i.e. fusion of the bones. The restoration of range of motion is the key feature in favor of ankle replacement with respect to arthrodesis. However, clinical evidence of the superiority of the former has only been demonstrated for particular isolated implant designs. Since the early 1970s, the disadvantages of ankle arthrodesis and the excellent results attained by arthroplasty at other human joints have encouraged numerous prosthesis designs also for the ankle. In the following decade, the disappointing results of long-term follow-up clinical studies of the pioneering designs has left ankle arthrodesis as the surgical treatment of choice for these patients. More modern designs have produced better ...
Ankle preserving arthroscopic ankle surgery treats the cartilage, ligaments and bones of the ankle joint. Ankle arthroscopy has the potential to prevent early osteoarthritis of the ankle.
A lightweight foot prosthesis is claimed, having a foot, an ankle joint connected to the foot and capable of motion about a transverse axis, forward and rear snubbers for limiting rotation of the ankle joint, and a connector for connecting the ankle joint to a leg. The ankle joint preferably comprises a body having a bore, and a shell having an integral axle, with the axle extending pivotally through the bore.
We proudly carry STAR™ Ankle devices. The STAR™ Ankle is used world-wide for more ankle replacements than any other device. It has a long clinical history - the current design has been in use for over 20 years, and prior generations of the STAR were approved for use as early as 1978. The STAR is the only 3-piece mobile bearing total ankle available in the United States, as approval for such a device in the US requires a rigorous FDA PMA process that is very expensive and time-consuming. The process to get the STAR approved took nearly 10 years, and was approved in 2009.. An ankle replacement is similar to other total joint implants of the knee or hip in that the joint is replaced with an artificial device that mimics the function of the joint it is meant to replace. However, ankle replacement devices have far less of a history than hip or knee implants and are being modified and improved regularly.. Many different devices for ankle joint replacement exist. Get evaluated by your physician to ...
The microstructure of articular cartilage could be divided into four distinct zones: the superficial zone, middle zone, deep zone, and calcified cartilage zone. It is believed that the superficial zone of articular cartilage has a lower permeability, which may be related to the close packing of the collagen fibrils resulting in a system of much narrow channels which offer a greater resistance to flow [1]. This parametric study investigated the influence of permeability of the superficial zone on the behavior of cartilage stress relaxation and creep of human ankle joint using a 2D biphasic poroelastic finite element model (FEM) that was created from a living human ankle joint..

An artifical ankle joint for use as an ankle between a foot prosthesis and leg prosthesis in an artificial limb. The artificial ankle joint includes a foot plate attached to a foot prosthesis, a leg plate attached to a leg prosthesis, a stem assembly and bearing assembly connected between the plates in which the bearing is a spherical bearing oriented vertically and including an inner race connected to the leg plate about an axis generally horizontal when the ankle joint is in use and an outer race connected with the stem assembly. Resilient structure extends between the plates for providing a degree of resistance to relative movement of the plates and includes a heel spring enclosing the stem assembly and a toe spring spaced from the heel spring with both the toe and heel springs extending between the plates. The stem includes a unitary or two piece unit anchored to the foot plate at one end and including a vertically disposed spherical bearing assembly connected to the leg plate at its other end to
Ankle replacement is also called ankle arthroplasty. It may be recommended for people who have arthritis of the ankle, and is done to help reduce pain and improve ankle motion. The normal anatomy and movement of the ankle joint are depicted, along with the surgical procedure to replace an arthritic ankle joint with an implant (prosthesis).

Labels include the tibia, fibula, medial malleolus, talus, deltoid ligament, tibiofibular ligament, tibiofibular syndesmosis joint, lateral malleolus and mortise joint.
Conservative treatment should be initiated and one should avoid any movements that cause the pain but often this is not possible especially for sports people. In case of persistent pain, surgery is the only option to remove the underlying cause of the impingement. Keyhole surgery (arthroscopy) to the front or back of the ankle joint allows taking away any scar tissue, bony spurs, excessive soft tissue and inflamed tissue. At the same time, one can also take care of any other problem inside the ankle joint if needed. Recovery after an arthroscopy depends on various factors but is faster than after an open procedure. The outcome after "debridement" of the ankle joint is very satisfactory and patients are normally able to resume their sports activities within a reasonable time.. ...
The posttraumatic osteoarthritis of the upper ankle joint is increasingly treated by a total joint replacement. The patient we are reporting about presented an additional complex injury of the fibulotalar ligaments. In primary surgery by total ankle replacement this was not solved sufficiently. Consecutively a fibulotalar instability with subluxation of the mobile polyaethylen inlay was the result. As a salvage procedure during revision a plastic reconstruction by the Castaing procedure has been carried out. The clinical result six months post-operatively shows a very good mobility with fibulotalar stability. Total joint replacement of the upper ankle joint with a comminuted fibulotar ligament complex is possible but plastic reconstruction shoul be obtained initally. ...

Background: The impact on clinical safety of dampening articular mechanoreceptor feedback at the ankle is unknown. Injection of the ankle joint for pain control may involve such dampening. Athletes receiving intra- articular local anaesthetic may therefore be at increased risk of sustaining ankle injuries, which are a common source of missed sporting participation. Objectives: To determine the effect of intra- articular local anaesthetic on movement discrimination at the ankle joint. Design: Prospective, randomised, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, cross-over trial. Setting: Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) Medical Centre, Canberra, Australia. Patients: Twenty-two healthy subjects (44 ankles) aged 18-26 were recruited for the three visits of the study Interventions: Subjects were tested for their initial movement discrimination scores using the active movement extent discrimination apparatus (AMEDA). They then received ultrasound-guided intra-articular injections of local anaesthetic ...
Definition : Implantable prostheses designed for total replacement of the ankle joint. These prostheses may consist of either a combination of a tibial component and talus component prostheses or, more frequently, of advanced designs that include three or more components. Several total ankle joint prostheses are available with different shapes and technologies. A semiconstrained three-component mobile-bearing prosthesis requires resurfacing of the superior ankle, and a semiconstrained cemented prosthesis requires the conversion of the three-bone ankle joint into a two-bone ankle joint by fusing the fibrous union at the distal ends of the tibia and fibula (i.e., tibiofibularis syndesmosis). Total ankle joint prostheses are used in patients who suffer from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, as well as after trauma..

Clinical Scenario: Chronic ankle instability (CAI) is a complex musculoskeletal condition that results in sensorimotor and mechanical alterations. Manual therapies, such as ankle joint mobilizations are known to improve clinician-oriented outcomes like dorsiflexion range of motion but their impact of patient-reported outcomes remains less clear. Focused Clinical Question: Do anterior-to-posterior ankle joint mobilizations improve patient reported outcomes in patients with CAI? Summary of Key Findings: Three studies (2 RCT, 1 Prospective cohort) quantified the effect of at least 2-weeks of anterior-to-posterior ankle joint mobilizations on improving patient reported outcomes immediately after the intervention and at a follow-up assessment ...
Background: The use of artificial endoprostheses has become a routine procedure for knee and hip joints while ankle arthritis has traditionally been treated by means of arthrodesis. Due to its advantages, the implantation of endoprostheses is constantly increasing. While finite element analyses (FEA) of strain-adaptive bone remodelling have been carried out for the hip joint in previous studies, to our knowledge there are no investigations that have considered remodelling processes of the ankle joint. In order to evaluate and optimise new generation implants of the ankle joint, as well as to gain additional knowledge regarding the biomechanics, strain-adaptive bone remodelling has been calculated separately for the tibia and the talus after providing them with an implant. Methods: FE models of the bone-implant assembly for both the tibia and the talus have been developed. Bone characteristics such as the density distribution have been applied corresponding to CT scans. A force of 5,200 N, which ...

After years of taking pain relief and the increasing immobility of my ankle I decided it was time to get medical advice. Mr Farndon on inspection of my ankle advised that it was possible to perform ankle replacement surgery and not totally immobilise the ankle, as I thought would be the situation. The ankle replacement surgery in Harrogate has been a total success and I now have pain free mobility of about 90 percent in my ankle and regularly walk 5 to 10 miles without a thought. The ankle replacement has changed my life, I attend a gym again and also do Pilates weekly. The follow up support from my surgeon has been great and I now only have annual check ups. I would recommend anyone who was in my situation to visit Mr Farndon. His advice, surgery, and aftercare has totally change my life giving me back the ability to walk, drive, and enjoy my retirement pain free, which was becoming increasingly difficult, due to my arthritic ankle. ...

The ankle joint is a hinged synovial joint with primarily up-and-down movement (plantarflexion and dorsiflexion). However, when the range of motion of the ankle and subtalar joints (talocalcaneal and talocalcaneonavicular) is taken together, the complex functions as a universal joint (see the image below).
In fact I must say that right through my stay in hospital, everyone was meticulous in carefully identifying me (name and DOB) on every occasion when they interacted with me "medically".). I was also introduced by Dr. Najefi to Dr. Amana Ifie, SHO, a new member of the Foot & Ankle team.. Thus reassured, I was taken off by wheelchair to my ward (Jackson Burrow), and my bed (no. 15). By this time it was around 9 oclock and, having had it confirmed to me that I would not be called for surgery until at least 1.00 p.m., I had plenty of time to settle in. Having read the admission guide, and although I was on an open (male) ward, I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of space around my bed - enough for my two bags (one with clothes and "tech", the other with my (disassembled) crutches)..

If you suspect your ankle pain is the result of a mild injury, you can try the usual RICE measures: rest, ice, compression and elevation, but seek medical attention if the pain persists. Depending on the severity and cause of your ankle pain, your physician may recommend NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen; corticosteroid injections; orthotics; physical therapy; and surgery.. Injury to an ankle can increase the risk of re-injury to as much as 40 to 70%. For this reason it is important to strengthen and stretch your ankle after injury to help decrease your risk.. Rehabilitating your ankle should be done slowly and carefully. Start with non-weight bearing exercises, moving to resisted exercises, and then weight bearing activities as your ankle recovers.. Rehabilitation exercises are critical to ensure that the ankle heals completely and reinjury does not occur. You can begin healing by walking or bearing some weight, while using crutches if needed, if you can do so without too much pain.. Southwest Foot & ...
Arthritis is a general term for a group of more than 100 diseases. "Arthritis" means "joint inflammation." When it affects the ankle joint it can produce swelling and pain, and may eventually result in deformity, loss of joint function, and decreased ability to walk.. The most common form of ankle arthritis is osteoarthritis. For more information on this topic, read "Osteoarthritis of the Foot and Ankle.". Similar symptoms may be caused by another form of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis.. ...
The proposed study aims to characterize biological ankle joint function during walking and running on slopes in order to further develop advanced powered ankle-foot prostheses. Ankle joint torque and angle data will be collected from non-amputees while walking and running at multiple speeds and slopes.

Studying gait analysis with particular running shoes is extremely important because the ankle and foot serve as the foundation of structural balance, support, and propulsion . In this study Vibram FiveFingers and Nike Free Run minimalist shoes were chosen because of their popularity and uniqueness. During the testing each participant ran 30 s at the speed of 3 m/s on a flat treadmill for the FiveFingers shoe, Free Run shoe, and barefoot condition. The gait cycles of heel strike, mid support and toe off were examined. In this study no statistical significant increase or decrease in dorsiflexion or plantarflexion angles was observed in the Nike Free Run or Vibram FiveFingers in any phase of gait. This study suggests that both types of minimalist footwear do mimic barefoot running because they do not hinder a runners range of motion in the ankle joint while running.
You are certainly on the extreme end of ankle problems. An ankle fusion would be a strong possibility. If you are ot sure or do not understand the post op follow up, you should write down your questions and ask away. I offer patients a brace when a fusion is not an option. An example is a fixed Richie type ankle brace. This would lock the ankle so no motion occurs. If one finds wearing a brace objectionable, then so be it and proceed with surgery.. ...

Though many people have never heard of it, ankle replacement surgery addresses the very painful and prevalent problem in the U.S. of ankle arthritis. In the roughly 50,000 patients who are found each year to have no cartilage left in their ankles, the only option surgeons had until recently, was to fuse the bones together. That stopped the pain, but severely limited motion. But now, these patients are increasingly turning to ankle replacement surgery ...

When I was 16 years old, I noticed that I had severe ankle pain in both my right and left ankles. After X rays and an MRI I was diagnosed with Osteochondritis in both of my ankles. I had surgery on both of my ankles (removal of the floating cartilidge in the ankle joint), followed up by months of physiotherapy. I am now 18 years old and the pain in my ankles has gotten worse. I am currently trying to play soccer and stay active, but the pain is becoming overwhelming, even when I am just performing daily tasks and walking around. At my last visit with my surgeon, I was told that there was nothing else they could do and I had to learn to cope with the pain. If anyone knows anybody with the same problem as me or has any tips to offer, that would be greatly appreciated. I feel as though there may be another option out there for me, and I am willing to try anything at this point. Thanks.. Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion ...
Osteoarthritis of the ankle joint is the name given to arthritis which gives pain in the ankle. This also causes the affected joint to become stiff with reduced range of movement.
The "paving the way" happens on the lateral, or outer side as well as will commonly take place throughout sports and strolling. Ankle instability is a problem qualified by the ankle joint paving the way or feeling unsteady as well as undependable, especially on irregular surfaces.. Physical rehabilitation is based on re-training the damaged proprioceptive nerves, enabling them to react to the motions of the ankle. Your foot will be examined for signs of swelling and also tenderness. There are two major ligaments that support the ankle joint. Sadly the condition is typically misdiagnosed as a sprain. If your ankle really feels unstable and gives way repetitively, or if you have recurring ankle strains, it is recommended that you have a complete evaluation by a foot and ankle joint cosmetic surgeon.. A method recognized as the Thompsons test (additionally known as the calf bone capture test) could be made use of. These tendons are affixed to the fibula (little bone next to the shin bone) ...

After surgery, you will most likely need to stay in the hospital for at least one night. You may have received a nerve block that controls pain for the first 12 to 24 hours after surgery. Your ankle will be in a cast or a splint after surgery. A small tube that helps drain blood from the ankle joint may be left in your ankle for 1 or 2 days. To keep swelling down, keep your foot raised higher than your heart while you are sleeping or resting. You see a physical therapist, who will teach you exercises that will help you move more easily. You most likely will not be able to put any weight on the ankle for a few months. ...

A break where your ankle has moved or is out of place is called a displaced fracture. This break makes your ankle unstable and you are probably not able to walk on that foot at all. This break is more complicated and will require more recovery time and possibly surgery. Surgery will probably include the placement of metal rods, plates and screws. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, "weight bearing will not be allowed on your ankle for 6 weeks. After 6 weeks, the ankle may be protected by a removable brace as it continues to heal." Your doctor will take more X-rays to see how the bone is healing. You may have to continue to wear the brace or cast depending on your situation. Your doctor may require you to stay off of your foot longer if your ankle needs it.

Arthritis means inflammation of the joints. Osteoarthritis is the most common of many different forms of arthritis and results from the normal aging process and use of the joints.
Roger said: "I used to play with Manchester Rugby Club and broke my right ankle in my 20s and again in my 30s.. "I recovered and thought nothing of it for years until my ankle started to play up in the spring and I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis due to the earlier trauma.. "We bought the house on the beach because Im so passionate about kitesurfing and seeing people out there enjoying the sea made me determined to do something about my condition.. "I wasnt prepared to stay on painkillers and not do the things I enjoy and saw Mr Makwana who was great at explaining what the procedure entailed.. "It was two and a quarter hours of keyhole surgery which involved fusing bone in my lower tibia to the ankle joint. To me the result was nothing short of a miracle.". After six weeks in plaster and then a further five in an air cast boot, Roger was "set free" and back to his old self running the village estate agency.. "Its like magic," he said. "Im pain free and have most of my ankle flexibility ...
Ankle impingement occurs when soft tissues around the ankle are pinched or nipped. Impingement mainly happens when the ankle is fully bent up or down, leading to pain either in the front or back of the ankle joint.
Osteoarthritis that occurs as a result of a poorly aligned ankle is not uncommon. In most cases (70 to 80 per cent), trauma to the ankle is the original cause of the problem.. If conservative care doesnt help, then surgery is often advised. The two most commonly used operations include ankle joint fusion or total ankle replacement (TAR). But there are some patients who could benefit from surgery to realign the joint instead.. The surgeon may be able to balance the uneven joint space. The operation is called realignment surgery. Too much tension on the tendons can be lessened. Angles between bones in the ankle can be changed. And the bone can be lengthened or shortened.. Shear forces can be reduced and shifted to be equal across the joint. Any deformity in the midfoot, forefoot, or hindfoot may be reduced. If realignment surgery is not successful, then a fusion or TAR can still be done.. The realignment approach has made it possible for some patients to continue participating in sports ...

The ankle block is a combination of 5 injections around the foot and ankle. Before the performance of the block, you will receive medicine to sedate you. Only after you are adequately sedated will the anesthesiologist proceed with the injections. We do this so that you will not feel any discomfort during the performance of the block. In fact, you probably wont even remember you had the procedure. Once sedated, the anesthesiologist will clean your foot and ankle with an iodine solution, identical to the solution used by the surgeons. Then he or she will use very thin needles to inject a local anesthetic, similar to lidocaine, to numb a portion of the foot. Depending on where on the foot the surgery takes place, this may involve 4 to 5 different nerves.. After surgery, you may notice some bruising around the ankle. That is where the anesthetics were injected. Accordingly, you may notice that actual injection points around the ankle. Because we use very thin needles, the marks are not long ...

Although age-related gait changes have been well characterized, little is known regarding potential functional changes in central motor control of distal lower limb movements with age. We hypothesized that there are age-related changes in brain activity associated with the control of repetitive ankle movements, an element of gait feasible for study with functional magnetic resonance imaging. We analyzed standardized functional magnetic resonance imaging data from 102 right-foot dominant healthy participants aged 20-83years for age-associated effects using FSL and a meta-analysis using coordinate-based activation likelihood estimation. For the first time, we have confirmed age-related changes in brain activity with this gait-related movement of the lower limb in a large population. Increasing age correlated strongly with increased movement-associated activity in the cerebellum and precuneus. Given that task performance did not vary with age, we interpret these changes as potentially compensatory for
Case 1-A 43 year old man presented with a painful left flat foot. At 6 years of age he had sustained a laceration with glass below his left medial malleolus. At the time his family did not seek medical attention. Subsequently the inside sole of his left shoe was seen to be wearing out. At 13 years of age he was referred to an orthopaedic clinic and underwent an unsuccessful tendon repair. Inspection showed a 1 cm transverse laceration below his medial malleolus and a fixed pes planus deformity. His hindfoot was in 10° of fixed valgus (figure) and the ankle in 5° of fixed equinus. The patients ankle-hindfoot and midfoot scores were 22 and 16 respectively with the scoring system of the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society for grading the functional status of the foot and ankle. The maximum score is 100 and lower scores reflect increasing severity of symptoms and disability.2 An x ray film showed degenerative changes of the ankle and hindfoot joints, and ultrasonography of the ankle showed ...

Thisarticle discusses the design and testing of a powered ankleprosthesis. This new prosthesis mimics nonamputee (normal) ankle moments duringthe stance phase of gait through the use of anoptimized spring loaded four-bar mechanism. A prototype prosthesis based onthe optimization was designed, fabricated, and tested. The experimental resultsachieved 93.3% of the simulated theoretical ankle moment giving substantialevidence that this approach is a viable in designing poweredankle prostheses.
To demonstrate this approach, we report AT forces measured during cycling. Cycling offers a unique paradigm for studying AT mechanics. First, because the crank trajectory is constrained, joint angles and muscle-tendon unit (MTU) lengths of the gastrocnemius (MG, LG) and soleus (SOL) are also constrained. By varying crank load, subjects ankle moments can be altered without imposing changes in MTU lengths. For this study, 10 competitive cyclists were tested at 4 different crank loads while pedaling at 80 rpm. Based on published EMG recordings (e.g., [3]) and on in vivo tendon force buckle data from one subject [4], we hypothesized that the cyclists AT forces would increase systematically with crank load.. Methods: We coupled B-mode ultrasound with motion capture, EMG, and pedal forces to estimate in vivo AT forces non-invasively during cycling and during a series of isometric ankle plantarflexion tests. Marker trajectories were tracked using an optical motion capture system. Joint angles and MTU ...

Cladistic phylogenies of the archosaur ingroup are reviewed in light of recent concerns regarding an over-dependence on characters relating to tarsal and pedal morphology. The use of simple statistical techniques shows that the exclusion of ankle characters from recent cladistic phylogenies has no significant effect on the relative support of relationships proposed. Contrary to current opinion, ankle characters should be considered unimportant when attempting to reconstruct the broad shape of archosaur phylogeny.

Injury of the ankle symptoms include ankle pain, foot or toe pain, ankle swelling, leg pain, foot or toe swelling, and joint pain. Doctors that see patients with injury of the ankle specialize in primary care.
Ankle dislocations without fracture occur when significant force applied to the joint results in loss of opposition of the articular surfaces. Because of the large amount of force required and the inherent stability of the tibiotalar joint, dislocation of the ankle joint is rarely seen without an associated fracture.

A star track-and-field athlete in high school and university, LaSalle native Cindy Crapper won her share of medals. But, she also suffered her share of injuries, particularly to her right ankle.. "I had total reconstruction of my right ankle because of all the injuries that Ive had through sport, so it challenges me to walk without a lot of pain," says Crapper, 45. "It feels like bone-to-bone any time I do any kind of running or sport. Any time I go for a hike, its sore for three days.". Crapper, who competed in the 1980 Pan American Junior Track and field Championships, suffered from such ailments as a broken foot and tendonitis.. She found relief with a pair of walking poles, which were featured at a conference sponsored last June by the British Columbia Parks and Recreation Association.. "So, I started using these poles, and thought my Goodness, I dont feel it in my ankles, " says Crapper, who is currently a Recreation Services Co-ordinator for the City of Vancouver."Its amazing the ...

Wade is expected to play Tuesday against Sacramento.. Wade injured the ankle on a third quarter play when he landed on the foot of Jazz point guard Deron Williams. Wade had been battling a sore ankle for a few games and this seemed to aggravate it. He grabbed his ankle and limped off the court, but was soon joking with teammates.. For people calling for a more serious All-Star Game with something on the line, this is the risk. What if fighting for home court in the finals Wade more seriously injured his ankle and had been out a couple weeks or longer? Would that be good for the league?. Wade finished with 14 points.. ...
Chronic ankle instability usually develops following an ankle sprain that has not adequately healed or was not rehabilitated completely. When you sprain your ankle, the connective tissues (ligaments) are stretched or torn. The ability to balance is often affected. Proper rehabilitation is needed to strengthen the muscles around the ankle and "retrain" the tissues within the ankle that affect balance. Failure to do so may result in repeated ankle sprains.. Repeated ankle sprains often cause - and perpetuate - chronic ankle instability. Each subsequent sprain leads to further weakening (or stretching) of the ligaments, resulting in greater instability and the likelihood of developing additional problems in the ankle.. Diagnosis ...
QUESTIONS:Is loss of proprioception or loss of motor control related to functional ankle instability? Are proprioception and motor control related? Is there any difference in proprioception or motor control between ankles with different severity of functional ankle instability? DESIGN:Cross-sectional, observational study. PARTICIPANTS:Twenty people aged between 18 and 40 years with functional ankle instability associated with a history of ankle sprain more than one month prior. Twenty age-matched controls with no functional ankle instability or history of ankle sprain. OUTCOME MEASURES:Functional ankle instability was classified using the Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool, proprioception at the ankle was measured as movement detection at three velocities, and motor control was measured using the Landing Test and the Hopping Test. RESULTS:There was little if any relation between proprioception (r = 0.14 to 0.03, 95% CI 0.40 to 0.25) or motor control (r = 0.08 to 0.07, 95% CI 0.35 to 0.20) and ...
Lateral ankle sprain injury is the most common musculoskeletal injury incurred by individuals who participate in sports and recreational physical activities. Following initial injury, a high proportion of individuals develop long-term injury-associated symptoms and chronic ankle instability. The development of chronic ankle instability is consequent on the interaction of mechanical and sensorimotor insufficiencies/impairments that manifest following acute lateral ankle sprain injury. To reduce the propensity for developing chronic ankle instability, clinical assessments should evaluate whether patients in the acute phase following lateral ankle sprain injury exhibit any mechanical and/or sensorimotor impairments. This modified Delphi study was undertaken under the auspices of the executive committee of the International Ankle Consortium. The primary aim was to develop recommendations, based on expert (n=14) consensus, for structured clinical assessment of acute lateral ankle sprain injuries. ...
Almost all sports include running, which puts you at risk for a rolled ankle or ankle sprain. Many athletes wear sports ankle braces to help prevent these injuries and to provide extra support to the ankle. There several different types of ankle support braces for sports.. Lace Up Ankle Braces - Lace ankle braces are great for athletes who want to control the tightness of the brace at each point of the foot. The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine recently studied basketball players and found that wearing laced ankle braces significantly reduces the chance for ankle injuries.. Recommended: ProCare Lace Up Ankle Brace. Rigid Ankle Braces - Rigid ankle braces have a hard outer shell that allows the ankle to move up and down, and helps prevent too much of the side to side movement that leads to ankle injuries. Rigid ankle braces can be worn to prevent severe ankle injuries - especially if your ankle has already had an injury before. They can also be used immediately after an injury to ...

Information on both tests can be found in the links provided here and here and here.. From my review of literature, I found 7 studies that showed that the SEBT or the YBT was useful in identifying subjects across many different sports that were likely to sustain either a future lateral ankle sprain or other lower limb injury.. American Football athletes:. 1) 606 American Football athletes (high school and college) were screened in the pre-season, which included the SEBT. Those that went on to sustain a future lateral ankle sprain were nearly 3x more likely to perform poorly on the SEBT-ANT (67% or less leg length). Furthermore, those that had a higher BMI (,27) AND who had poor performance on SEBT-ANT were 1.7x more likely to sustain a future lateral ankle sprain (4).. 2) 59 American Football athletes (college) were screened in the pre-season using the YBT. Those that went on to sustain a lower limb injury during the season, were 3.5x more likely to do so if their composite YBT score (normalised ...
