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)

The ankle joint is made up of numerous bones, tendons, and ligaments. All of these help the ankle produce a multitude of movements. They play an integral part in maintaining the ankles stability. Ankle instability can result when these bones, ligaments, or tendons are damaged or compromised in some way.. Causes. The ankle joint and its surrounding structures are very complex. Any injury to the tendons, ligaments, bones, or tendons can result in instability. Dislocations or fractures of the fibula or tibia can cause ankle unsteadiness. Damage to the tendons that support the ankle joint can also cause ankle instability. Overuse can result in tendonitis and produce chronic and significant unsteadiness.. Repeated ankle sprains that do not properly heal are often the cause of chronic ankle instability. If the ankle joint continues to give away easily after the initial sprain, the instability is considered chronic. Unstable ankle joints are more likely to be sprained again. Each additional sprain ...

J Strength Cond Res 30(9): 2482-2492, 2016 - The use of cold application has been debated for its influence on joint range of motion (ROM) and stiffness. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a 30-minute ice bag application to the plantarflexor muscles or ankle influences passive ankle dorsiflexion ROM and lower leg musculotendinous stiffness (MTS). Thirty-five recreationally active college-aged individuals with no history of lower leg injury 6 months before data collection volunteered. On each testing day, we measured maximum passive ankle dorsiflexion ROM (°) and plantarflexor torque (N·m) on an isokinetic dynamometer to calculate the passive ...
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 ...

Figure 2 (A) Coronal T2 MR image showing enlarged peroneal tubercle with peroneal tendons traveling in osseous tunnel, with surrounding tenosynovitis. (B) Coronal T1 showing enlarged peroneal tubercle.. Ball and socket ankle joint is a rare condition that can initially present as lateral ankle or peroneal tendon pathology [9]. The ball and socket ankle joint has a loss of concavity of the talar articular surface and rounding (increased concavity) of the tibial and fibular surfaces. The etiology of the deformity is controversial, with the most contested origins being embryologic malformation and adaptive deformation due to abnormal subtalar and midtarsal structural abnormalities [5,10-12]. Using arthrographic studies, Takura, et al., showed that ball and socket ankle deformity did not occur until after 5 years of age , supporting the theory that ball and socket ankle joint is an acquired deformity [13]. Others have supported the findings of Takura, stating that the ball and socket ankle joint ...
Definition of talar tilt test in the Financial Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is talar tilt test? Meaning of talar tilt test as a finance term. What does talar tilt test mean in finance?
Ankle arthritis may have many underlying causes. This can occur due to a prior fracture, inflammatory arthritis, repeated ankle sprains and instability, gout, foot deformities etc.. Early ankle arthritis associated with bone spurs and pain can also be managed with an ankle arthroscopy and resection of the spurs and treatment of cartilage defects to restore function and relieve pain in the ankle. In the intermediate stages of arthritis, osteotomy or correction of deformity to relive pressure on the ankle cartilage can also be a good option.. In the later stages of arthritis the options would be either a fusion (arthrodesis) of the ankle or an ankle replacement. This can be a decision that takes into account the age and activity level needed, the specific demands of the ankle and the condition of the skin and soft-tissues to name a few factors. Advancements in techniques have made both options a good choice and every patient should have a discussion with their surgeon on the pros and cons of each ...

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.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Movement discrimination after intra-articular local anaesthetic of the ankle joint. AU - Down, Stuart. AU - Waddington, Gordon. AU - Adams, Roger. AU - Thomson, Malcolm. PY - 2007. Y1 - 2007. N2 - Background: The effect on clinical safety of dampening articular mechanoreceptor feedback at the ankle is unknown. Injection of the ankle joint for pain control may result in such dampening. Athletes receiving intra-articular local anaesthetic may therefore be at increased risk of sustaining ankle injuries, which are a common reason for missed sporting participation. Objective: 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 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 ...
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..

Ankle Joint Anatomy: Bones Of Ankle Joint include Tibia, Fibula, Talus and Calcaneous. Know the complete ankle joint anatomy- Bones, Joints, Ligaments, Tendons- Anterior, Posterior.
This stock anatomical exhibit reveals a single anterior view of the left lower leg, ankle and foot. Clearly illustrated and labeled within this view are the main bones and ligaments of the ankle. 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.. ...

What is it? Anterior ankle impingement, also known as anterior impingement syndrome, is a musculoskeletal condition where repetitive forces compress and damage the tissues at the front of the ankle, causing pain and stiffness. It is a common injury that can affect people of all ages, however, is usually seen in athletes of sports involving repetitive or forceful upward movements of the ankle, such as sprinting, landing from long jump, uphill and downhill running. What are the symptoms? Pain at the front of the ankle is the primary symptom of anterior ankle impingement. This can be felt as an intense, sharp pain occurring with ankle movements or a dull ache in front of the ankle following periods of exercise. Pain can also be felt when putting weight through the ankle while standing, walking, or running. Nighttime aching, stiffness, swelling and reduced ankle flexibility are also common symptoms of anterior ankle impingement. How does it ...
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 ...
We performed a case-control study with the purpose of establishing the pressure patterns in the soles of the feet of patients with ankle osteoarthritis, determining whether the pattern changed after treating the arthritis with ankle joint fusion (arthrodesis), and whether the change is significant. We also studied the benefits of ankle fusion with respect to the Short-Form 36-item Health Survey and the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society Ankle-Hindfoot scale. The study included 18 participants (9 in the study group and 9 in the control group) to reach statistical significance with a 95% confidence interval (CI).. View article ...
Ankle joint orthoses stabilize the ankle. Depending on the model, they also mobilize the ankle by accustoming the ankle joint to more freedom of movement.
Results: Interobserver and intraobserver reliability in identifying the mechanical ankle joint axis point were very high. The mean postoperative mechanical axis point was 50% (range, 13% to 70%) in ankles for which the preoperative point was ≤0%, whereas the mean postoperative point was 81% (range, 48% to 113%) in ankles for which the preoperative point was ,0%. The mean change in AOFAS score was significantly less for patients with a preoperative point of ≤0% than for those with a preoperative point of ,0% (p = 0.004).

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. ...
Teardrop Sign (ankle): One normal ankle radiograph (A), and one abnormal ankle radiograph (B) revealing a moderate effusion. The teardrop shaped density seen extending anteriorly from the ankle joint along the neck of the talus has been referred to as the teardrop sign of ankle effusion.

Here we asked if Achilles tendon moment arm (MAAT) length is different in children with CP and age-matched typically developing (TD) children, and if MAATcan be predicted from anthropometric measurements. Sixteen children with CP (age: 10y 7 m ± 3y, 7 hemiplegia, 12 diplegia, GMFCS level: I (11) and II (8)) and twenty TD children (age: 10y 6 m ± 3y) participated in this case-control study. ...
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 ...
For patients with damaged ankles, ankle prosthesis may provide a reasonable option. Ankle replacement is a new procedure designed for elderly patients with low impact activity demands.. In this procedure, a badly damaged ankle is completely replaced with an artificial implant (prosthesis). Because the damaged ankle is completely removed, total ankle replacement can resolve a wide variety of serious ankle problems.. Although not as common as a total hip or knee joint replacement, advances in implant design have made ankle replacement a feasible option for many people.. Ankle replacement offers patients better mobility and movement compared to fusion surgery. By allowing motion at the ankle joint, less stress is transferred to the adjacent joints, which means lessened chances of arthritis in those adjacent joints.. Ankle replacement is most often recommended for patients with:. ...

PURPOSE:. An initial step in the understanding of Achilles tendon dynamics is to investigate the effects of passive motion, thereby minimising muscle activation and reducing internal joint forces. Internal tendon dynamics during passive ankle joint motion have direct implications for clinical rehabilitation protocols after Achilles tendon surgery. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that tendon tissue displacement is different in different layers of the Achilles tendon during controlled passive ankle joint movements.. METHODS:. Ultrasound imaging was conducted on the right Achilles tendon of nine healthy recreationally active males. Standardised isokinetic passive dorsi-plantar-flexion movements were performed with a total range of motion of 35°. The tendon was divided into superficial, central and deep layers in the resulting B-mode ultrasound images viewed in the sagittal plane. A block-matching speckle tracking algorithm was applied post-process, with kernels for the measurement ...

A total ankle replacement system, novel surgical method for total ankle replacement, and novel surgical tools for performing the surgical method are described. The total ankle replacement system includes the calcaneus in fixation of a lower prosthesis body, thereby significantly increasing the amount of bone available for fixation of the lower prosthesis body and allowing the lower prosthesis body to be anchored with screws. The total ankle replacement system further includes a long tibial stem which can also be anchored into the tibia with, for example, screws, nails, anchors, or some other means of attachment. The novel surgical arthroscopic method allows introduction of ankle prostheses into the ankle joint through an exposure in the tibial tubercle. Various novel surgical instruments, such as a telescoping articulating reamer and a talo-calcaneal jig, which facilitate the novel surgical method, are also described.

Almost everyone has heard of total hip replacement and total knee replacement. But fewer people are familiar with total ankle replacement (also called total ankle arthroplasty).. Although it looks like a simple hinge joint, the ankle actually involves much more complex movement, absorbing forces up to five times body weight. Many conditions, such as severe osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and post-traumatic arthritis, can cause degeneration of the ankle joint, leading to severe pain, swelling and immobility.. Until recently, the only choice to repair a degenerated ankle was to fuse the shin bone (tibia) to the top foot bone (talus), a procedure called ankle arthrodesis. This eliminated pain but left the ankle completely immobile.. When total ankle replacement (or TAR, for short) was first performed in the 1970s, the two-part prosthesis implanted was not very successful. Nowadays, ankle prostheses are made of three pieces of plastic and metal. While not perfect, they relieve pain and allow ...
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a potentially efficacious treatment for ankle osteoarthritis (OA), but its use has not been examined in high-quality studies. Ankle OA is more common than hip or knee OA in the young active population.1 The incidence of symptomatic ankle OA is estimated to be 3.4% in the general adult population.1 Patients with ankle OA have a quality of life and physical functioning comparable with hip OA, end-stage kidney disease or congestive heart failure.2 These relatively young (predominantly female) patients have an increased risk for decreased work participation and family care. The available surgical intervention (arthrodesis) is associated with significant functional limitations. In contrast to hip and knee OA, where joint replacement is an excellent surgical alternative for severe cases, there is a clear need for effective non-surgical interventions in ankle OA.. PRP is defined as plasma containing a concentration of at least 1 000 000 platelets/μL.3 Growth factors are ...

This study investigated reliability of freehand three-dimensional ultrasound (3DUS) measurement of in vivo human Achilles tendon (AT) moment arm. Sixteen healthy adults were scanned on 2 separate occasions by a single investigator. 3DUS scans were performed over the free AT, medial malleolus, and lateral malleolus with the ankle passively positioned in maximal dorsiflexion, mid dorsiflexion, neutral, mid plantar flexion and maximal plantar flexion. 3D reconstructions of the AT, medial malleolus, and lateral malleolus were created from manual segmentation of the ultrasound images and used to geometrically determine the AT moment arm using both a straight (straight ATMA) and curved (curved ATMA) tendon line-of-action. Both methods were reliable within- and between-session (intra-class correlation coefficients , 0.92; coefficient of variation , 2.5 %) and revealed that AT moment arm increased by ∼ 7 mm from maximal dorsiflexion (∼ 41mm) to maximal plantar flexion (∼ 48 mm).

The foot and ankle team of the Bone and Joint Institute at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is at the forefront of ankle repair with its use of the novel lateral approach to total ankle replacement. In 2015, clinicians performed seven procedures using the lateral approach implant; in 2016, that number doubled to 14.. This implant has several unique features, explains Michael C. Aynardi, MD, foot and ankle assistant fellowship director and assistant professor, Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation. First, the lateral ankle replacement implant is one of few implants on the market today that consists of highly cross-linked polyethylene. In addition, the implant is curved, allowing for greater rotational stability compared to more widely used anterior-approach implants. Lastly, an external guidance frame allows for significant deformity correction during surgery.. Advantages to the lateral approach, according to Dr. Aynardi, include:. ...

N2 - Ligament balancing during total ankle arthroplasty is an important step in optimizing the mechanical balance of the ankle joint. Soft-tissue contractures that result from varus or valgus coronal plane deformity can pose a difficult problem, and the surgeon should have a standard procedure for managing such situations in the operating room. Balance may be assessed intraoperatively with the use of spacer blocks, laminar spreaders, and tensioning devices as well as by placement of trial components. Techniques used to balance the varus or valgus ankle during primary total ankle arthroplasty include osteophyte resection, soft-tissue release, and bone resection. Mediolateral ligament balancing is crucial for long-term success and patient satisfaction.. AB - Ligament balancing during total ankle arthroplasty is an ...
Treatment for chronic ankle injuriesAnkle injuries are usually termed as sports-related injuries as many people think such injuries are more common to athletes. However, one does not have to be an athlete to suffer from chronic ankle injuries. Something simple like walking on the uneven surface can already trigger a painful and debilitating pain. Ankle injuries could take place to anybody regardless of the age. On the other hand, men between the ages 15 and 24 years old may have increased rates of ankle sprain than women who are more than the age of 30 are more at risk than men.. Most of the time, ankle sprains can take place in case of an accident while playing. The most typical ankle injuries are fractures and sprains that involve bones and ligaments in your ankle, yet you could also strain or tear a tendon. Ankle injuries can be defined by the type of tissue, which are tendon, ligament or bone that is damaged.. Treatment Options in Treating Chronic Ankle Injuries. Fractures could be treated ...

Materials and Methods: Twelve patients treated with this design were analyzed at 6, 12, and 24 months followup. A series of images were acquired by videofluoroscopy at extremes of the range of motion, and during flexion/extension against gravity and stair-climbing/descending. Three-dimensional positions and orientations of the tibial and talar metal components and of the ...
Dr. Kevin James offers information about the symptoms of chronic ankle instability and the treatments available for patients at his Fort Worth based medical facility
In light of an increasing body of research on the effect of orthoses on chronic ankle instability and postural sway, this author discusses essential biomechanical considerations and recommends orthotic prescriptions and modifications to treat unstable ankles.
The purpose of the present study was to examine the effect of chronic ankle instability (CAI) on lower-extremity joint coordination and stiffness during landing. A total of 21 female participants with CAI and 21 pair-matched healthy controls participated in the study. Lower-extremity joint kinematics were collected using a 7-camera motion capture system, and ground reaction forces were collected using 2 force plates during drop landings. Coupling angles were computed based on the vector coding method to assess joint coordination. Coupling angles were compared between the CAI and control groups using circular Watson-Williams tests. Joint stiffness was compared between the groups using independent t tests. Participants with CAI exhibited strategies involving altered joint coordination including a knee flexion dominant pattern during 30% and 70% of their landing phase and a more in-phase motion pattern between the knee and hip joints during 30% and 40% and 90% and 100% of the landing phase. In ...
Ankle instability usually results from repeated ankle sprains. Ankle surgeon, Dr Jody Litrenta in New York, NY offers ankle instability surgery to treat an unstable ankle and torn ligament.
Background: The anterior impingement test is intended to detect anterosuperior acetabular labral lesions. In patients treated for labral lesions its sensitivity is reportedly 95% to 100%, and in a small group of patients undergoing periacetabular osteotomy, its sensitivity was 59% and specificity 100%. However, the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predict value of this test to detect these labral lesions in unselected patients with hip pain are unknown. Questions/purposes: We investigated these four parameters (1) in unselected patients with hip pain, and (2) in three subgroups of patients with dysplasia, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), and with an intact joint space. Methods: We prospectively studied 69 patients (15 men and 54 women) with a mean age of 57.2 years (range, 27-81 years). One observer performed the anterior impingement test in all patients. We determined the presence or absence of an anterosuperior labral lesion with radial MRI in 107 hips (38 ...
The ankle, or the talocrural region, is the region where the foot and the leg meet. The ankle includes three joints: the ankle joint proper or talocrural joint, the subtalar joint, and the inferior tibiofibular joint. The movements produced at this joint are dorsiflexion and plantarflexion of the foot. In common usage, the term ankle refers exclusively to the ankle region. In medical terminology, ankle (without qualifiers) can refer broadly to the region or specifically to the talocrural joint. The main bones of the ankle region are the talus (in the foot), and the tibia and fibula (in the leg). The talocrural joint is a synovial hinge joint that connects the distal ends of the tibia and fibula in the lower limb with the proximal end of the talus. The articulation between the tibia and the talus bears more weight than that between the smaller fibula and the talus. As a region, the ankle is found at the junction of the leg and the foot. It extends downwards (distally) from the narrowest point ...

  • The ROM is generally defined in two conditions: active ROM, joint mobility with voluntarily effort using her/his own muscle strength, and passive ROM, joint mobility by an external force while the muscles crossing the joint remaining relaxed [ 1 - 4 ]. (
  • With increased motion, the muscles absorb the mechanical force energy without exceeding the tensile limits of either the joint capsule or the ligaments. (
  • The bones are cushioned by cartilage and connected by a number of ligaments, tendons, and muscles that strengthen the joint and enable it to be moved. (
